Entertainment Weekly has just posted their Iron Man 3 cover featuring Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow, but that’s not the big news. They go on to tease:
Some online rumors turn out to be true, however. A source confirms to EW that the twin characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be joining The Avengers 2, which Whedon hinted at recently when he said he was writing a brother-sister duo into the movie. Feige maintains a poker face on that scoop, saying only: “I’m not confirming or denying. The draft could change six months from now.”
That sounds like a hit to me. Feige had previously said about the potential rights conflicts with Fox:
“It’s a little complicated; If [Fox] wants to use them in an X-Men movie they could, if we want to use them in an Avengers movie we could.”
I guess Marvel beat them to the punch!
