Quicksilver And Scarlet Witch Are ‘A Huge Part’ Of Joss Whedon’s ‘Avengers 2′

Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch speeding onto the path of Earth’s mightiest heroes is no small thing. The super-siblings are “a huge part” of Joss Whedon’s planned “Avengers” sequel, according to the filmmaker himself.

That’s the word from Whedon in a new interview with CraveOnline.com. The “Avengers” writer and director also spoke about Quicksilver appearing in “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” Bryan Singer’s return to the “X-Men” films, a completely separate universe than the world established in the Marvel Studios films.

Put bluntly: Whedon is completely ignoring what Singer is doing.

“I’m really excited about it,” Whedon said of his use of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, before addressing the silver-haired speedster’s appearance in Singer’s “X-Men” movie. “I don’t know what they’re doing and I’m determinably not knowing. They’ll do their thing. I have to do mine.”

But something tells us we haven’t heard the last of new superheroes joining the “Avengers” sequel, even if Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch play a huge part. Whedon recently said he’s “got some people in mind” for female heroes to include in his upcoming Marvel movie, adding, “Marvel’s got some great characters, so why not draw on them.” Janet Van Dyne or Carol Danvers, perhaps? We’ll keep pushing until we hear otherwise.
