Five years on from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging and who would have thought that Aaron Johnson would be the Hollywood saviour he is becoming? British actor, Johnson, made his break through in America in Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass in 2010 and he hasn't looked back since, just don't mention Oliver Stone's Savages. With a sequel to Mark Millar's comic book adaptation is set for release this summer and filming with Gareth Edwards on the new Godzilla, Johnson seems to like to keep himself busy. And if the rumours are true Johnson doesn't seem to have any plans on slowing down, with every film site reporting that Johnson is hte front runner to play Quicksilver, the newest addition to Joss Whedon's Avengers. But Johnson is not the only Qucksilver you will see gracing our screens next year after Bryan Singer revealed that Evan Peters (also from Kick-Ass) is set to play Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The only thing that seems clear at the moment is that Marvel fans will not be getting the cross over that they want but it would be interesting to see what both actors would bring to the same part. Aaron Johnson has star quality, unlike Evan Peters who is still pretty unknown in Hollywood. As well Johnson looks more the part with his typical good looks then Peters. If the rumours are true then it would prove for an interesting summer although it would be a whole lot more interesting if half way through Avengers 2 Hit Girl popped up to drop some beautiful C-bombs.
