Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver confirmed for Avengers 2 script?

Kevin Feige says it’s only the first draft...

Last week Joss Whedon dropped his tastiest Avengers 2 morsel to date by revealing that there would be a brother-sister duo amongst the film’s new roster of characters.

That swiftly set tongues wagging online, with the general consensus being that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch were the only two characters to whom Whedon could be referring.

The question was put to Kevin Feige by Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview, and while the Marvel head honcho attempted to play with a straight bat, his comments were interesting to say the least.

“I’m not confirming or denying,” said Feige, before seeming to show too much of his hand by continuing, “The draft could change six months from now.”

Does that mean that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch have been written into the first draft? When taken in tandem with Whedon’s earlier comments, it certainly sounds that way...

Directed by Whedon and co-starring Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans et al, The Avengers 2 will open in the UK on 1 May 2015.

      Personal preference - don't introduce more superhero characters, just expand on the ones we had in the first film, as some of them could have used a little extra screen time / fleshing out. I'm starting to think that Phase One will be as good as it gets, and it's all downhill from here...

      Adding characters that have such a strong link to the Xmen world in with the Avengers just doesn't seem right. I also agree with @mattburgess, expand the current members of the Avengers team and add in the more natural characters like Ant Man, etc.

      I just hope Thanos kicks a*s in The Avengers II and he's not just some English actor pretending to be him.......

      Is this what its going to be like for the next TWO YEARS? Whedon dangling a hook and everyone swarming toward the bait?

      What are the chances Marvel are trying to get Quicksilver onscreen to just steal a march on any plans DC may have to use 'The Flash' in a Justice League movei?
