In an interview with IGN, Whedon confirmed the rumor that Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch, two popular characters from the Marvel Universe, will be appearing in the sequel.

In the comics, the two were siblings that first appeared in the “X-Men” comics in 1964 and have made appearances in “Avenger” story lines over the years.

Fans were already excited to see at the end of the first film that Thanos would be the main villain in the next pic and this should only get them more excited.

Whedon’s next task is who should play them and that question should be answered soon. So who do you think would make a good Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch?

  1. Scoot McNairy and Kerry Bishe. They were great together in Argo.

  2. But how can they appear? Aren’t they Magneto’s children? Wouldn’t Fox have anything to say with Marvel/Disney in using these characters because Fox owns the X-Men stuff and those two by blood are X-Men.

    • Gumby says:

      Unless they omit the fact that they are affiliated to anything in the xmen universe and just cast them as two “new” superheroes.

  3. Vincent says:

    Alice from Twilight- Ashley Greene for Scarlet Witch
    Jackson Rathbone for Quicksilver

  4. Mario says:

    Well I hope he basis his version off the Marvel universe version because the Ultimate universe versions know the are brother and sister yet are sleeping together. And that would be odd to explain in a movie.
