'Kick Ass' Studly Star Aaron Johnson Cast In 'Avengers 2'

We were already waiting with excited bated breath for Joss Whedon's Avengers 2: Age of Ultron, but now that we know Kick Ass star Aaron Johnson will be donning tights yet again for the big screen, we've lost our breath completely. 

The Wrap reports:

“Kick-Ass” star Aaron Taylor-Johnson has finally worked out his schedule and closed a deal to play Pietro Maximoff, better known as Quicksilver, in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” an individual familiar with the sequel has told TheWrap.

Taylor-Johnson didn’t close his deal until Wednesday, as the “Age of Ultron” shooting schedule overlaps with his upcoming publicity tour for Legendary’s “Godzilla” reboot. That potential obstacle has been overcome and his availability to properly promote that creature feature and shoot the “Avengers” sequel is now ensured.

Aaron joins Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Robert Downey Jr. in the sequel, ensuring a place for smelling salts in our homosatchel should we faint from the sheer volume of handsome that will appear on screen together. 

Not sure we're feeling Quicksilver's trademark star white hair on Aaron, however. We'll just have to wait to see how that turns out!
