Kick-Ass star Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been confirmed to play Quicksilver in the new Avengers film.

The 23 year-old actor has long been the rumored frontrunner for the role since June, but a scheduling conflict with the Godzilla reboot movie, which Taylor-Johnson also stars in, almost derailed his chances of appearing in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Nevertheless, the issue has reportedly been worked out and Taylor-Johnson will take on the superhero role, according to TheWrap.com.

Quicksilver is the twin brother of the Scarlet Witch, who will be played by Elizabeth Olsen.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which also stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson, is set to hit theaters in 2015.
