Bryan Singer: Scarlet Witch is NOT in Days Of Future Past. What?

April 28th, 2014 by Marc Comments

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.

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….
