The Wrap is quoting a source that states that Aaron Taylor-Johnson has officially signed to play Quicksilver in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
While the casting has been rumored about for months, stemming from an interview with Taylor-Johnson done by Total Film where the actor described the research he was doing for the character. However, the deal was not finalized until today, as scheduling conflicts between the film’s shooting schedule and the actor’s commitment to the publicity tour for Godzilla had to be worked out. This conflict didn’t appear to be a problem for Taylor-Johnson’s Godzilla co-star, Elizabeth Olsen, who signed to play the Scarlet Witch in the Avengers sequel weeks ago.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to open on May 1, 2015.
