Avengers 2 Reveals Two New Characters in its Script
— Posted by Ryan
Although there is not an official confirmation, there is a very strong theory that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will be joining the team in Avengers 2. Bleeding Cool compiled a number of sources that lean towards these characters being included in the current script. If you watch the video below, you will hear Joss Whedon confirm that he is excited to include a brother and sister on the team. Kevin Feige was asked about this and of course abstained from answering, but everyone knows a “no comment” means it’s a yes.
If this is true, which it is seeming to be, this is going to cause a major nexus that will require some sort of collaboration between the studios. The nexus I am referring to is the fact that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are mutants and on top of that they are the children of Magneto. This falls into the X-Men realm which of course leads to Fox studios. If these characters are included are they going to elaborate on their true origins or are their origins going to become the elephant in the room? On top of that, it will be interesting to see how they use Scarlet Witch’s powers in the film. Are they going to scale her down a bit or are they going to give her the ability to alter reality? Time will tell but this is exciting news for the next film! Let’s hear what you have to say everyone…DISCUSS, DISCUSS, DISCUSS!
