[[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 characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be joining 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: “I’m not confirming or denying. The draft could change six months from now.”
Both Feige and Whedon 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..
