Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will appear in The Avengers 2...unless the script changes

May. 2, 2013by:

The Avengers

Last week at the IRON MAN 3 premiere Joss Whedon teased that a brother-sister duo would be joining THE AVENGERS 2 and it was assumed that the director was talking about the twins Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. The newest issue of Entertainment Weekly is all about IRON MAN 3 and the rest of Marvel's Phase 2 films, and a source for EW has confirmed that the twins will appear in the sequel. But we all know that sources aren't always right so EW asked Marvel Studio's Kevin Feige if the rumors were true. His response?

I’m not confirming or denying. The draft could change six months from now.

Which means....yeah they're in it. At least for now.

Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver

The addition of Wanda and Pietro Maximoff is big for a couple of reasons. As fellow editor Paul Shirey pointed out when it was first rumored, since they are mutants how will their powers going to be explained? The film rights to these characters are shared with FOX so will this open the door for other characters to be able to show up in Marvel's film universe, even if they don't own the rights to them 100%?

Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are primarily known for working with/against the X-Men but in the comics (and this is interesting because it could be what is used in THE AVENGERS 2 or 3...oh and be warned it's kind of a spoiler) the siblings at one point joined the Avengers after the founding members took a leave of absence and a new team was formed consisting of the duo, Captain America and Hawkeye. Could Whedon possibly be adding pieces just in case certain key actors don't want to return or only want to be a part of the film in a limited capacity? Does he plan on killing off a couple of heroes so that a new team has to be formed? SO. MANY. QUESTIONS.

Marvel's Phase 2 kicks off when IRON MAN 3 hits theaters TOMORROW, then it's on to THOR: THE DARK WORLD on November 8th, 2013, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER on April 4th, 2014, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY on August 1st, 2014 and THE AVENGERS 2 on May 1st, 2015.

Extra Tidbit: Do you think we could ever see an Avengers/X-Men movie or would it just be too big?

Random thoughts.

New characters mean more origin stories. Without resorting to Wikipedia, I have no idea who Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver are. Thanos is purple. Are Marvel hedging their bets to get other actor's salaries down? Bacon is yummy. I trust Joss Whedon. I just want a good story. I would like to know more about what happened in Budapest. If I was a costume designer, working for Marvel would be awesome. Is Iron Man going to be more of a cameo in Avengers 2? I'm not drunk yet.

Incest Included????

Love to see these characters on film...just didn't know anyone other than FOX could use mutants. They'll probably have to change their origins so as not to include their true father Magneto. The Ultimate comics have these two engaging in an incestuous [link] if that will make the film as well, seeing how most of todays characters and stories are ripped from the Ultimate Universe.

Since they already have massive star power in the film, would LOVE to see some fresh faces/unknowns play these two.

2sdaychicken - Very good points...but the comics reboot / tinker / retinker with stuff all the time - the animated movies have done this too (with Spider-man and Batman being the best examples). Whos to say The Mandarin we all know from the comics doesn't show up further down the line - if not in this current version of the Marvel movies but one in the years to come. Batman will need to be rebooted if DC are going down the JL route with the current Man of Steel movie. In fact, the fact that

Batman will need to be rebooted if DC are going down the JL route with the current Man of Steel movie. In fact, the fact that this Mandarin isn't like the comic book The Mandarin means that there's more of chance that when the reboot of the Marvel movies happens next (fair enough it won't happen for many years to come) that's what we'll get next as they'll be desperate to be different from the first version. Didn't we just get a Spider-man with web shooters after the organic ones? How much will Green Goblin version 2 differ from the Defoe one? And didn't we just get a totally different and superior Judge Dredd to the one that came before? Were also about to a get very different Superman to the one that came before. The beauty of the comic world will - is - unfolding on screen before our very eyes ;o)

In the comics

Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch believed they were orphans and Magneto thought his twins were lost. It took over fifteen years for the "truth" to come out and even then it was a retcon that just happened to make sense.

That always bothered me. Why even bother fighting if she can just end someone's existence by thinking about it?

Sounds cool

I'm sure Marvel isn't allowed to reference Magneto, but I really hope they don't CHANGE their origin. Just don't mention, keep it hush-hush, or even kind of hint at it in a round-about way that they can get away with. Reason being I HATE when movies change the comic source, and I still have hope Disney will reclaim all the other characters' rights eventually (even if it is legitimately 50 years from now). I think people underestimate the longevity of the MCU. It isn't a fucking trilogy or

I think people underestimate the longevity of the MCU. It isn't a fucking trilogy or some bullshit, it will last forever, like a cinematic 616. That's why every mistake (like a certain Iron Man 3 twist) hurts twice as hard. Sometimes I feel Marvel themselves aren't thinking FAR enough ahead.

I think thirdeblue is so spot on, I'll copy and paste what he said below...

"I'd actually prefer that X-Men and the Avengers remain separate universes. So unless they decide to change the brother and sister's back story, I don't want them in."

The mutants should have always stayed in their own world even in the comics...because pretty much any human whose super powered without the use of say an armoured suit is just that...a mutant. I'll never understand how the anti mutant henchmen in

I'll never understand how the anti mutant henchmen in X-men the animated series from the 1990s felt that a man that sticks to walls isn't someone who has mutated powers!

Also Captain America and Wolverine fought in WW II together. That would be a nice reference.

They'll probably mention him in some fashion without saying the name. I picture Tony throwing out, "Daddy Issues" or something cute like that..

This is getting really exciting..

..because if they bring in The Scarlet Witch, they eventually have to bring in the android The Vision which was one of my favorite Avengers and the soulmate of The Scarlet Witch, which ofcouse is a mutant. I always thought that was a very unique dynamic, even by Marvels standards. A mutant and an Anroid (who can become intangible) romantically involved in THE AVENGERS. Marvel & Disney really should form some sort of deal/treaty with the other studios to let characters be shared. If this

If this happens, then THE INFINITY GAUNTLET can be done right, which it seems they're headed after THE AVENGERS 3. You really do need Reed Richards, Spider-Man, The X-men and Silver Surfer to properly tell this story. NUFF SAID

It would be cool for them to open the door in Avengers 2 to at least acknowledge the existence of X-Men, Spiderman, Fantastic Four, etc. Whether those characters need to be front and centre in Marvel films, I don't think it's necessary and it would probably be a little too much for one movie. I think what would be awesome is if in Avengers 2 they acknowledge the characters owned by Sony and Fox. And then in Avengers 3 they go for broke and have an all out world-ending plot with a total

I think what would be awesome is if in Avengers 2 they acknowledge the characters owned by Sony and Fox. And then in Avengers 3 they go for broke and have an all out world-ending plot with a total badass villain (Thanos? Ultron?) and in the final/third act at the final showdown, BOOM! X-Men show up, Spiderman swings in, Fantastic Four does some fucking math (I'm not really sure what they do, never read the comics). It would make for an amazing end to this amazing film franchise. Assuming they cap everything off at Avengers 3...doubtful I know.

I like it

I hope they can work out a deal with Fox atleast to explain how they got their powers and open the door to a possible Avengers/X-Men movie, which I think you could Absolutley pull off. but it would be more like what they did with the hobbit and split one story into 2 or 3 movies to make it work...just imagine if Avengers made 1.5 Billion, what an Avengers vs X-men would do, and ofcourse you would have to pull in Sony so that you get Spiderman as well, 3-4Billion dollars?? (if its any good) so
