So the image above has been around for a while and shows Evan Peters as Quicksilver in the upcoming Days of Future Past and the little girl, dressed in red and pink is Wanda Maximoff AKA Scarlet Witch. Simples, right?
Uh-uh says director Bryan Singer.
Speaking with Empire, the director talked about the little girl and how fans jumped to the wrong conclusion: “Is that the Scarlet Witch? No, that’s his little sister. I even had a line which I cut, where Quicksilver’s mother says to the little girl, ‘Go up and bug your sister,’ and the little girl says, ‘She bugs me!’ You never see the older sister, but it was to imply that there is an older sister for comic bool fans. I ended up cutting it.”
So, the little girl isn’t who we all assumed she was… weird, huh? But Scarlett Witch does exist in the movie, just off screen somewhere, even if she’s not named in the final cut.
