A week ago Joss Whedon let slip on the red carpet premiere for Iron Man 3 that a “brother/sister act” would be appearing in the sequel to Marvel’s The Avengers. Obviously every fan on the interwebs started thinking of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver – the Maximoff Twins – who are best known in comics for being extremely powerful, members of both X-Men and the Avengers, and being the children of Magneto. Given this, these characters’ rights are shared by both Marvel and Fox, but neither studio are allowed to reference each other’s versions.
Inside Entertainment Weekly‘s big cover on all things Phase II and Iron Man 3, they reveal that:
A source confirms to EW that the twin characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be joining The Avengers 2, which Whedon hinted at recently when he said he was writing a brother-sister duo into the movie.
When Kevin Feige was asked about it, he simply said “ I’m not confirming or denying. The draft could change six months from now.” However, I’m taking this as pretty much a lock the brother/sister act will be appearing in the movie.
