[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7382:]]If you recall, in a recent interview, Joss Whedon mentioned that he would be using two of his favorite characters in The Avengers 2 -- a brother-sister act.
It was immediately speculated by just about everybody to be Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch; yep, the son and daughter of the Master of Magneticism, Magneto.
Apparently, either Fox Studios or Marvel Studios can use the characters because they are both considered part of the X-Men universe or Avengers universe.
But as CBN's Chris "DOC" Bushley pointed out to me -- Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch have never been official members of the X-Men (true?).
Now we have confirmation that the pair will, indeed, be showing up in The Avengers 2.
EW revealed the cover to their latest issue, which will have a feature on the Marvel Studios movies, and they confirm that both Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch will be a part of The Avengers 2.
Some online rumors turn out to be true, however. A source confirms to EW that the twin charactersÂ QuicksilverÂ andÂ Scarlet WitchÂ will be joiningÂ The Avengers 2, which Whedon hinted at recently when he said he was writing a brother-sister duo into the movie. Feige maintains a poker face on that scoop, saying only: â€śIâ€™m not confirming or denying. The draft could change six months from now.â€ť
Both Feige and WhedonÂ have been stating recently that we'll see new characters as part of the Avengers, looks like we have two so far.
The Avengers 2 assembles May 1, 2015 with Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie on August 1, 2014 and Ant-Man on November 6, 2015..
