Aaron Johnson has been cast in The Avengers 2 as Quicksilver after lengthy talks surrounding his new Godzilla movie.

The Wrap has it that Johnson recently closed the deal for Quicksilver after working out his publicity schedule surrounding the new Legendary and Warner Bros. Godzilla flick that also stars Elizabeth Olsen speculated to be playing Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron as well.

It's said Johnson closed the deal as recently as this past Wednesday with Marvel Studios making no official announcement as of yet.

Regarding the use of Quicksilver in The Avengers 2, Marvel will not be referring to the character as a mutant, as Fox owns the rights to the X-Men, with Quicksilver considered a "shared" character.

The Avengers 2 has a May 1, 2015 release date directed by Joss Whedon and starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson with James Spader as Ultron.
