It was rumored a few weeks ago about their appearance, but as of recently it seems that both Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will appear in Avengers 2.
In an interview, Whedon spoke about their involvement in the film.
“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.”
Whedon also spoke about how the ending to Iron Man 3 had showed a potentially changed Tony, but he’s still tied to The Avengers.
“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!’”
SuperheroHype learned exclusively that Irish actress Saoirse Ronan is the “prototype” for their version of the Scarlet Witch, but no casting has taken place.
There’s still more to come as casting is still coming together with many rumors flying around about potential actors being replaced for Avengers when it hits theaters May 1, 2015.
And stay tuned!
