Joss Whedon has confirmed that The Avengers 2 will feature Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
Doubts had been raised recently over the characters’ inclusion in the superhero sequel when Bryan Singer announced that Quicksilver would appear in X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, ComingSoon are reporting that during a Q&A for the Film Society of Lincoln Center, the director confirmed that the brother and sister combo are in.
“And so continues the Q and not-A… That’s not something I can really talk about, but Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are going to be in the movie and they’re going to be AWESOME.”
Whedon was also asked if there was any Marvel character he would like to do something with, and his answer brought applause from those in attendance.
“If I could get my hands on absolutely anybody it would be Batman. He’s a Marvel character in the DC universe.”
Any chance Whedon can be available when Warner Bros. decide to bring Batman back the big screen?
