“It’s Not 100% Official Yet” Aaron Taylor-Johnson On Playing Quicksilver In Avengers: Age Of Ultron
A few of Marvel‘s mystery roles have started to come to light lately. Vin Diesel pretty well confirmed that he would be voicing Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson has pretty well done the same regarding Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron the past few months. While doing press for Kick-Ass 2, the actor once again opened up about possibly playing Quicksilver and revealed that he’s had several conversations with Marvel and Joss Whedon about the upcoming sequel.
Speaking with HeyUGuys, Taylor-Johnson was asked about the Avengers rumors. We pretty much know, barring some sort of fallout or freeze in communications, he’ll be assembling with the Avengers to battle Ultron. The site asked the actor if he could confirm the role:
No, it’s not 100% yet, it’s not official. You’ve got to remember that they start filming next year in February or March or something like that so we’re still a long way away. It’s all in discussion and in a friendly way as well, you know, I’ve met with Joss Whedon now twice and we spoke about it a lot and I’ve been with the Marvel guys and they’re f***ing awesome dudes, so I am flattered to be asked to be a part of The Avengers, who wouldn’t? But more importantly to me, I have to know if I can convey that character in the right way because that’s what it comes down to. So that’s all for now really, they still have loads of other characters and actors to make sure they can schedule and stuff.
The Kick-Ass actor followed up with “I’d f***ing love to do it.” As much as the actor knows about the film and as open as he’s been about his conversations with Marvel, I’d say if it’s not 100% official it’s around 98-99% official. Nobody seems to care enough to ask if he’s heard word on who could possibly be playing his sister, Scarlet Witch, in the film though. With this piece about to be in place, hopefully we start hearing some movement on the Scarlet Witch front. What do you think about Aaron Taylor-Johnson‘s latest comments?
