Back in April, Marvel’s The Avengers director Joss Whedon teased that mutant siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch would be making an appearance in the sequel, The Avengers 2. Now, he has confirmed that with IGN.
Here is what he had to say about their inclusion.
“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.”
If you have not seen Iron Man 3, you might want to stop reading as this next bit of news from Joss is a MAJOR SPOILER!
At the end of Iron Man 3, Tony Stark destroys all of his suits of armor. The director talked about the challenges of bringing the character back for The Avengers 2 as he has seemingly quit his job as a superhero.
“Well, I feel like in Iron Man 3
, even though he said, ‘I’ve changed’ — he blew up his remote suits, but I don’t think anybody thinks he doesn’t have one anymore. The question is, if The Avengers are called, does he show up? And the answer is, ‘Yes!’”
Now comes the important question: Who should play Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch? Let us know what you think.
