There are rumors circulating that Aaron Taylor-Johson is wanted to play the role of Quicksilver in Joss Whedon's 'Avengers 2.'

It comes just two weeks after X-Men director Bryan Singer announced that Evan Peters was going to play Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

While it seems odd to have the character appear in both films, Marvel president Kevin Fiege said it wouldn't be a problem.

"If they want to use them in the X-Men movies they could, if we want to use them in the Avengers movie we could," he said. 

The Avengers 2 is produced by Disney and X-Men is produced by Twentieth Century Fox.

Drew McWeeny, HitFix reporter, said the two characters would be different because in the Avengers, Quicksilver would not be referred to as a mutant.
