Aaron Taylor-Johnson zooms to the lead for top Quicksilver choice in "Avengers 2"

Aaron Taylor-Johnson could be Quicksilver in Avengers 2Today’s big web rumor is that “Kick-Ass” star Aaron Taylor-Johnson is in the running (so sorry) to play the role of Quicksilver in Joss Whedon’s “Avengers 2.”

Taylor-Johnson would make for a fine Quicksilver, but my only requirement is he dyes his hair white to capture Quicksilver’s comic-based look.

Since 20th Century Fox owns very specific rights to the character, “Avengers 2” Quicksilver can’t be identified as a mutant or as Magneto’s son.

And for some silly reason, Bryan Singer decided to add Quicksilver to “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” which already features about 1,045 X-Men at this point. Evan Peters will be playing the role in the X-Men film. Any guesses as to which film will feature the better Quicksilver?

Here’s a hint: it’s not the one that solely has him in the mix for the shock scene of Magneto learning he has a son.
