Aaron Taylor-Johnson has met Joss Whedon for Avengers 2

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron may be about to add a new name to its star-studded ensemble, with Aaron Taylor-Johnson confirming that he has had talks over joining the cast.

The star had initially been linked to the part of Quicksilver, and Taylor-Johnson has revealed that he has already met with Joss Whedon regarding the role.

"I feel really flattered and honoured that they came to me for that role," says the actor. "I think he’s an interesting character and we’re just gonna keep going into that."

"I sat down with Joss, I think he’s awesome, I sat down with the guys at Marvel and they’re also great; I think it’d be interesting.”

Note that Taylor-Johnson doesn't confirm having actually signed on, only that the process is ongoing. Still, we'd be very surprised if after careful consideration he decided it wasn't for him…

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron opens in the UK on 1 May 2015.
