Confirmed: Avengers 2 Script Does Feature Quicksilver And Scarlet Witch

quicksilver and scarlet witchThis week’s Entertainment Weekly is leading with an Iron Man 3 cover story. They’ve managed to pull in some interviews to support this, including one with Kevin Feige that will apparently provide an overview of the remainder of Phase 2, and they’ve also gone out to secret sources for information.

What they’ve come back with there is confirmation that Joss Whedon has indeed written Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch into his Avengers 2 screenplay.

The magazine put this to Feige for an on-the-record comment and he played it cool, saying:

I’m not confirming or denying. The draft could change six months from now.

And indeed it could, but it’s likely, and it would have to be really rather fixed not long beyond that. Production on the next Avengers is set to start early next year and pre-production on movies of this scale can take a very, very long time – indeed, some elements of prep are already be underway. There will come a point where the character list is locked, though – and personally, I’d expect we’re past that point.

So Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch it is, then. Let the casting rumours commence…
