The Avengers 2 gains Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver – Confirmed
Newest today is that we’ll be seeing the son and daughter of Magneto in the form of the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in Avengers 2. This information is courtesy of Entertainment Weekly’s print edition for this week, and from Mr. Whedon’s own spoilerish mouth as he said that he’s “got these two characters, two of my favorite characters from the comic books. A brother/sister act. They’re in the movie.”
Seriously man, save some stuff for the next 2 years won’t cha?
Anyways here’s the quote from the articles itself:
“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.”
Of course including these two MUTANTS into the Marvel Cinematic Universe doesn’t mean that Fox has come to Disney begging to make buckets of money, not necessarily. It simply means that there is a bylaw in the books that allows both companies to use the characters, if they want to.
However, this doesn’t exactly mean that they’ll appear in both companies’ IPs, it’s a matter of who can make them appear first gets to claim them for good. Let’s hope that Whedon and company get there first.
