While at the premiere of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Side-Butt: The Movie last night, Joss Whedon basically came right out and told Yahoo! Movies that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will be in The Avengers 2. Which seemed pretty random because everyone just assumed Fox had the rights to them and WHY?
“I’ve got these two characters, two of my favorite characters from the comic book, a brother-sister act, they’re in the movie. That’s exciting! You lock certain things in, there’s a fluidity.”
Turns out the characters are up for grabs to whoever ever uses them first. However, if Fox uses them they can’t mention them being Avengers, and if Disney uses them, they can’t be Magneto’s kids. Pending, of course, the rumor that Mark Millar brokered a deal where Disney and Fox can “borrow” characters that was probably started by Mark Millar. What we do know is that Joss Whedon definitely wants to bang his sister. And trust me, non-nerds, that was a hilarious joke if you know anything about Wanda and Pietro here. Several twelve-sided dies were just erroneously cast in fits of snorts. I bet my commemorative plates on it.
