Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver Comic Book

Originally rumored to be appearing in “The Avengers 2″ when Joss Whedon let slip that he was excited about introducing a “brother-sister act” to the upcoming superhero sequel, it now seems as if the Scarlet Witch and her bro Quicksilver really are set to make their big-screen debut in “The Avengers 2″.

Iron Man 3 EW CoverIn an article pimping their upcoming “Iron Man 3″ cover (left), EW confirmed that a source has told them that siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch (and children of Magneto of “X-Men” fame) will indeed be appearing in Whedon’s sequel, currently set for 2015.

When confronted with this scoop, Marvel chief Kevin Feige seemed to confirm it, but adds:

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

I somehow doubt that’s going to happen “six months from now” especially since Whedon has said how “excited” he is about introducing the siblings into the Avengers roster. It will be interesting how he does that, considering that, as mentioned, the two mutant siblings are the children of Magneto, currently owned by Fox. I guess one way would be not to mention Magneto?

And oh yeah, there’s also more talk about Robert Downey Jr. not returning for “Iron Man 4″ (should there be an “Iron Man 4″), something that Gwyneth Paltrow continues to promote for some reason. I don’t know why, her character had more to do in this latest film than all two previous “Iron Man” films combined.

In any case, hopefully Whedon is considering the original Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver and not those weirdos from the Ultimates Universe (below). Those guys make me uncomfortable for some reason. I can’t quite put my finger on why, though…

    Too bad Hiddleston’s already got the Loki job; he’d make a great Quicksilver

    Now all we need is Vision, Ms. Marvel, Black Panther, Hank, Wasp… oh man.

    I’m usually a pretty imaginative guy but for some reason I am having a total block as to how they are going to incorporate these two into the fold. They are mutants. Mutants! That is something never before touched in the MCU.
    I would assume that there will be no mention of any X ties to the characters. Hopefully they can successfully adapt them without losing there mtant origins. It just seems like an unusual choice to me.
    Although introducing them would lend to the formation of a possible West Coast Avengers spin-off. Both of Tony’s pads are destroyed afterall and since core members Hawkeye and War Machine are already established characters in the MCU and Ant-Man will be being brought in in the near future it isn’t completely unlikely that we’ll see that team assemble some time down the line. That would be cool!

      WCA would be great. And yeah trying to figure out how they’ll write them in without the mutant angle is going to be interesting…Unless they go the whole Wundergore high evolutionary route. Which could actually work.
