Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch have issues with Tony Stark in Avengers: Age of Ultron…

February 2nd, 2015 by Marc Comments


Past and present are apparently set to collide in Age of Ultron.

We recently reported the mindsets of Tony Stark and Quicksilver in the upcoming movie. Now though, we found out that the twins and Iron Man will NOT get along in the early going.

It’s being reported that Pietro and Wanda’s parents (*insert Magento joke here*) were killed by a bomb of Tony Stark’s when he was a weapons maker. This is what leads them to fight the Avengers and join Ultron.

“Our characters have a lot of anger, especially towards Tony Stark, and we want revenge,” said Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Scarlet Witch in the film, during an interview. “We meet Ultron, and he’s someone who preaches peace and… believes what we believe, which is that the Avengers create destruction and that Tony Stark’s bomb is responsible for killing our parents.”

But…that might not last very long, and Olsen reveals that “my character ends up really having to deal with her ignorance. A lot of problems that happen towards the end of the film are her responsibility.”

Avengers: Age of Ultron is in theaters on May 1.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
