Aaron Taylor-Johnson was the front-runner for the role of Joss Whedon's version of Quicksilver, but scheduling due to publicity for Godzilla wasn't clear. I say Joss Whedon's version, if you didn't know, because you'll see another actor playing Quicksilver in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Aaron Taylor-Johnson was able to get his schedule worked out and will now be free to film for Avengers 2: Age of Ultron.
Aaron joins Avengers pal Chris Evans in becoming an actor to don multiple tights, having played Kick-Ass previously. He still has one more hero to play to equal Evan's multiple roles of Human Torch, Captain America and that dude in The Losers. Avengers 2 will begin filming next year in London.

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
