While Marvel has already confirmed The Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver’s appearance in Avengers: The Age of Ultron, the actors who will play the roles are still up in the air, with the names being thrown around including Saoirse Ronan for Scarlet Witch and Aaron Taylor-Johnson for Quicksilver.
While the Saoirse Ronan bit is nothing speculation to this point, Collider has reported that Taylor-Johnson has indeed met with Joss Whedon in order to talk about a potential role in Avengers: The Age of Ultron.
“I feel really flattered and honoured that they came to me for that role,” says the actor. “I think he’s an interesting character and we’re just gonna keep going into that.”
“I sat down with Joss, I think he’s awesome, I sat down with the guys at Marvel and they’re also great; I think it’d be interesting.”
Keep in mind that Taylor-Johnson only confirmed meeting with Marvel reps. There’s still no word on whether he accepted or not. We suppose news of that will come sooner, rather than later.
