Whedon Expects Stark To Return Plus Confirms Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver For ‘Avengers 2′


The geek god himself, Joss Whedon, previously hinted that the sibling double-act of Wanda and Pietro Maximoff (aka Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver) may feature in the first draft of his script for THE AVENGERS 2. He’s now stated the brother and sister tag-team, best known as the spawn of X-MEN villain Magneto, will likely have their origins tweaked for their debut in the anticipated sequel set for cinemas summer 2015.

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.

He also went on to say that despite the ending of IRON MAN 3 and whether Robert Downey Jr. will return for another solo outing, he expects Tony Stark to feature in his follow-up.

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!

We recently brought you news that Soairse Ronan was being eyed for the role of Scarlet Witch in the conclusion of Marvel’s Phase II.

Craig is leading the charge as our north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.

    I just hope you’re wrong about Saoirse Ronan. She doesn’t have the look of Wanda. She looks more like a pre-pubescent child than a full figured woman.
