Aaron Taylor-Johnson Set For “Avengers”

Scheduling and contract details have finally been worked out, so now it’s finally set – “Kick Ass” star Aaron Taylor-Johnson has finally closed his deal to play Pietro Maximoff (aka. Quicksilver) in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”.

Though linked to the role since June, Taylor-Johnson didn’t close his deal due to a scheduling overlap between the “Ultron” shoot and his publicity commitments for the “Godzilla” reboot at Legendary Pictures. That issue has now been worked out.

It’s a familiar problem – his “Godzilla” co-star Elizabeth Olsen also co-stars as Quicksilver’s sister Scarlet Witch in the upcoming ‘Avengers’ sequel. Her schedule was apparently already worked out though.
