Quicksilver is set...
Kick-Ass just officially got a speed boost. The Wrap reports that Aaron Taylor-Johnson will play Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The move was rumored for a while, but the signing was just made official.
Taylor-Johnson is best known for the title role in Kick-Ass, John Lennon in Nowhere Boy and Ben in Savages. He's playing Pietro Maximoff, the speedster who will also be featured (or his mutant, non-Avengers side, anyway) in X-Men: Days of Future Past as played by Evan Peters.
Joss Whedon will direct Avengers: Age of Ultron, which releases on May 1st, 2015.
