Last night the U.S. red carpet premiere of Iron Man 3 took place (releasing in cinemas everywhere today in the UK), and the new Godfather of Marvel Studios himself Joss Whedon was in attendance. Yahoo! Movies got the chance to speak to him on the carpet about all kinds of cool Marvel stuff, ranging from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to The Avengers 2. However, more interestingly, Whedon seemed to spill the beans on two certain characters popping up in the movie…
“I’ve got these two characters in the movie, who are two of my favourite characters from the comics, a brother/sister act. They’re in the movie, that’s exciting.”
If you don’t know, Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver are the two mutant children of Magneto, however because of their affiliations with both characters in the MCU and X-Men the rights to these characters are shared. Fans have been speculating for a long time on who’ll be joining the team in the sequel, and while I had my heart set on Ms. Marvel I’d be very happy with the Maximoff Twins.
