Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch Confirmed for THE AVENGERS 2
Joss Whedon has confirmed that both Quicksilver (a.k.a. “Pietro Maximoff) and Scarlet Witch (a.k.a. “Wanda Maximoff”) will appear in THE AVENGERS 2. The director teased us a while back with this;
“I’ve got these two characters, two of my favorite characters from the comic book, a brother-sister act. They’re in the movie.”
After confirming the brother and sister team, Whedon has now added this;
“You know, they had a rough beginning. They’re interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier. I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier.”
Whedon also talks about Iron Man and if he’d show up after what took place in Iron Man 3;
“Well, I feel like in Iron Man 3, even though he said, ‘I’ve changed’ — he blew up his remote suits, but I don’t think anybody thinks he doesn’t have one anymore. The question is, if The Avengers are called, does he show up? And the answer is, ‘Yes!’”
So there you have it. Magneto’s kid are headed to The Avengers 2 which could end up being really interesting since the X-Men property is owned by Fox. It could be the beginning of some more crossovers, one can hope anyway. Also, I’m pretty sure if RDJ wants more money, the Marvel and Disney will pay out because this guy is the bank and a heavy fan favorite!
