Whedon Confirms Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch in "Avengers 2"

Postby IvCNuB4 » Fri May 17, 2013 4:33 pm

And now Whedon has confirmed it's Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch

Speaking with IGN.com this week at ABC’s upfront presentation in New York City, Whedon confirmed that he was indeed referring to the mutant children of Magneto, and explained the he finds them intriguing.

I will stand by my previous suggestion and say that Harry Lloyd should play Quicksilver and Emilia Clarke should place the Scarlet Witch.

Didn't both these characters have their 1st appearance in X-Men? I know they became more closely associated with the Avengers after leaving the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, esp. Scarlet Witch, but I wonder if FOX will try some legal stunt to keep Disney from using them.

they can't... Kevin Feige has said there are three characters that the rights fall to both Fox and Marvel.. Wanda and Pietro are two of them, the other are the Skrulls... Marvel can't call them mutants or say their father is Magneto... but Marvel can legally use the characters, and there's nothing Fox can do...

Wanda and Pietro!

I'm still amazed that this sort of thing can happen.

I say make them Inhumans.
Iknow Feige really likes the Inhumans and wants to use them at some point. Wanda and Pietro could be an intro to them.

I still find it hard to believe I live in a world where Thanos is becoming known by so many, but if The Inhumans make it to the silver screen I will be convinced I'm in a geek Matrix or afterlife, lol.

So Darcy is really Wanda??? (remember she's in both Thor films) so it really can't be her as Scarlet Witch, just like all the people saying Idris Elba should be T'Challa don't realize he's also Heimdall... these are all movies produced by marvel, so they aren't gonna use actors that are ALREADY characters in their own films as other characters... Its a little different than say Chris Evans being Human Torch and Captain America...

This is why I almost cry every time I see the Avengers or adverts for the super hero flicks. It's a surreal and awesome dream for long time comics fans that never thought this sort of thing could happen. Comics on the big screen and people loving it.

all they have to do is say they were born with their abilities, or even keep it a secret about where they got the powers, have Fury say the source of their powers is classified... they don't really have to change much... i mean for most of their comic lives they didn't know Magneto was their father, they thought it was the Golden Age character The Whizzer...

Avengers and the GOTG announcements flushed that kind of disbelief out of my system. I'm ready for anything with these movies. :D
