That’s right – Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch will be in the Avengers Sequel! Check out what Joss Whedon has to say about them!
In many of his previous interviews the highly sought after Joss Whedon has previously alluded to a brother/sister combination being a part of the Avengers Sequel.
Since the choice of characters in this regard is rather limited and the two candidates for the role are blindingly obvious to any comic book geek with a passing knowledge of the Marvel comic book universe, it was later confirmed by a number of sources that the characters Whedon alluded two are Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch.
For non-comic book aficionado’s out there, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are both mutants and the children of the Mutant Terrorist Magneto. In the comic books, they were members of the mutant terrorist group The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants who converted to good and were controversial choices to be part of The Avengers team.
Speaking about the pairs appearance in the upcoming Avengers sequel, Whedon said:
“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.”
