New characters revealed for The Avengers 2
That brother-sister team that Joss Whedon mentioned for The Avengers 2? Seems we know who they are...
The release of Iron Man 3 has brought with it a swathe of questions regarding The Avengers 2, not least because Marvel people are on the publicity trail, and available to answer them.
Entertainment Weekly, then, has been able to confirm - citing "a source" - the identity of the brother-sister team that Joss Whedon had said would be joining The Avengers 2. The brother-sister combo in question? That'd be Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. We don't know who'll be playing them, but they're now understood to be in Joss Whedon's current draft of The Avengers 2.
EW did put the question to Marvel Studios' head honcho Kevin Feige, although he was inevitably playing things closer to his chest. "I'm not confirming or denying", he said. "The draft could change six months from now".
Furthermore, while Robert Downey Jr's contract to play Iron Man is reportedly up, he is, EW reports, still expected to be a part of The Avengers 2.
