Joss Whedon confirms that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will join the Avengers

— Posted by Ryan


The rumors are true, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will be in The Avengers 2. Joss Whedon recently confirmed that they are indeed in the film but they have not yet begun to cast the roles. Check out his response below.


“You know, they had a rough beginning. They’re interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier. I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier.”

I was pretty sure that the rumors were true but my questions are how they are incorporated into the film being related to the X-Men and how big will their part be in the film? Are we going to start seeing them as “Easter eggs” in upcoming Marvel films? Will this make their roles about as significant as Hawkeye’s role in the first film? Either way this is some exciting news, there are going to be mutants on the team.

First and foremost, Ryan Brown is a fan. He has been an avid fan of both the theater and cinema since an early age and his passion for both has been continually growing ever since. When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.

"Kneel before me. I said? KNEEL! Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state? It?s the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power. For identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel."
