‘Avengers 2′: Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver Will ‘Mess With’ The Avengers

The duo of Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen may soon be seen in Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, but it’s their upcoming roles in The Avengers: Age of Ultron that has comic book fans on the edges of their seats. As Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver prepare to change Marvel’s flagship franchise forever, the actors promise that they’re doing their homework, and plan on complicating the fight for the rest of the Avengers.

Adding two new heroes to any super-team seems like the kind of move that would be planned out years in advance, but the first hints that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver would be brought to life came rather unceremoniously, with writer/director Joss Whedon simply stating he had a “brother-sister act” he wanted to introduce. That kind of offhand desire might seem out of place amidst the turbulent world of Marvel movie rumors, but in an interview with iAmRogue, Taylor-Johnson confirmed that the offer was just as informal:

“Just before I started Godzilla I met Joss… He said to me, ‘Do you want to be in Avengers 2? There is a super hero I’m thinking of for you.’”

While the actor didn’t have any reservations or concerns about playing a superhero in a blockbuster film (having some experience as the titular star of Kick-Ass), he explained that the months of speculation surrounding his role in Age of Ultron wasn’t a sign of secrecy or negotiation; he genuinely wasn’t certain the film needed him:

“The thing for me was for [Whedon], ‘Why add any more super heroes to this thing?’ He said, ‘No, there are these two characters that I want to bring in to like f*** with the Avengers and not be just an add on.’ He told me a little bit about the writing and I said that the only reason I would want to do it is if it is a character that can still stand out.

“You know, you’ve got five of the most awesome super heroes, ten I suppose, there are about ten Avengers now, and they are all movie stars… You’ve got such a huge cast, what the hell difference is it going to make if I come on the scene? So it was the character and that took about a year of going back and forth about it. It took a while but I’m super happy to be in that one.”

Those comments seem to confirm that while the pair’s appearance in Captain America 2‘s post-credits teaser was brief, the pair will play an integral role in Age of Ultron (to start with, anyways). The soon-to-be super-speedster recently hinted that appearances in future sequels are possible, but just how different the Avengers  team will be after the upcoming film remains to be seen.

It’s still unknown just what lasting impacts a villain like Ultron (James Spader) will have on the current roster – roster now operating without S.H.I.E.L.D.’s support. Whedon previously expressed a desire to “twist the knife” into his established cast with the sequel, going so far as discussing killing off a major character. While it might seem unwise for Marvel to kill off a major earner, the cast has referred to Age of Ultron as “ambitious” and “crazy,” with Whedon warning long ago that I know what’s going to happen and it’s going to be awful.”

Fans will be kept in the dark right up until the film’s release (if Marvel has its way), but there’s no question that something will leave fans stunned once the credits roll… or finish rolling. If we were to wager, it seems that the super-powered twins will be right at the heart of it – or even taking the place of those who fall.

Superpowers and skyscraper-sized monsters aside, it’s not often that two up-and-coming young actors shift from playing romantic leads (in Godzilla) to twin siblings. While the situation might seem somewhat awkward, Olsen explains that chance to play Wanda and Pietro Maximoff doesn’t just offer the pair a chance to portray a different relationship for audiences, but one which will benefit from their previous work:

“We have a much more closer connection in Avengers actually… Because we play these twin brother and sister that never leave each other’s side. In Godzilla, the whole point is that we are apart. So it’s totally different, but nice to have known him and his family, and him as a person as well as an actor before doing that.”

Although Taylor-Johnson can’t quite predict how the Comic-Con experience will change now that he’s appearing as a fully-fledged superhero, Olsen seems to be jumping into the world of comic book blockbusters with enthusiasm. The actress previously revealed that she has been reading comic books endlessly in preparation, and the first signs of superhero stardom are already beginning to appear:

“It’s awesome to try and create a role that has not been portrayed in live action yet… It’s been cartoons, comics, and video games. It’s fun to take what we are doing, the comics, the cartoon, and the fans, and try to figure it out where you are going to play.

“I didn’t really read any of the feedback. I just have one friend that works at Bad Robot, so she is on all these blogs all the time, and she’ll send me her favorites ones. She only sends me the good stuff but I like that people were stoked about our characters, and everyone was like, ‘What are they? Who are they? What’s their excuse going to be because they can’t talk about X-Men?’”

Every fan is likely just as curious to know how Marvel will handle the issue of the Maximoffs’ lineage – omitting their father (Magneto), or simply re-writing comic fiction? – but the acting credits of both are sure to keep fans more optimistic than usual. And lest we forget, the addition of super-speed and reality-bending ‘magic’ may be overshadowed by the “genuinely disturbed robot” after whom the film is named. Fans have been promised more conflict in Age of Ultron, so even if the pair end up fighting for good (as set photos suggest) they may not start out that way.

How do you feel about the established Avengers being shaken up by the arrival of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver? Do you have your doubts, or did their post-credits cameo confirm that the film is better off with them included? Sound off in the comments.

  1. I see, new characters are going to be introduced into the group dynamic. At first, not everyone will get along and the heroes are going to butt heads. We’ll probably even see the good guys fighting each other. Finally, a major threat will emerge forcing the Avengers to put aside their egos and join forces to take down their true enemy.

    In other words, it will be a beat for beat remake of the first one.

    • I wouldn’t say beat for beat. I actually think that the original Avengers are going to jump to be ready to work together, especially if SHIELD is still more or less out of the picture. I have a feeling that Struker will send the twins out to test the Avengers and see how well his “miracles” work against them. Tony probably creates Ultron to battle them but Ultron turns against the Avengers or something like that. Then the world will blame them for all the chaos and the movie will probably end on a rather somber note. Also, Ultron probably kills Hawkeye. Just gonna call that one right now. I’m gonna go with plasma beam to the face.

      • I’m thinking that the sexual tension between Cap and Natasha that was going on in Winter Soldier will continue here culminating in a scene where she can only save Steve or Clint.

        She chooses Steve and it is in that moment that Clint realises he has lost, excruciating emotional pain in his last few seconds of life.

        • Poor Clint lol

        • Hmmm do I save a super soldier or a normal human being?? Hmmm who would benefit more from my help?? Hmmmm

          • OR who’s survival would benefit the world more?

        • I think she’s still a double agent and working for Hydra but maybe only to find out information from them

          • Triple agent!!!!

      • I can totally see that happening: Hawkeye dies for real on this one. They have already killed/revive Coulson, Loki, Bucky, Fury,… it is time deaths actually mean something.

        With SHIELD gone and Stark running the show (Hill joined him for a reason) it is just normal that he creates Vision and an army of mini Ultrons (the ones we can see Quicksilver beating in the pic) to help out in seeking and destroying HYDRA (they killed his parents after all). He probably thinks that men cannot be trusted, with HYDRA lurking and all, but machines can… silly Stark.

        The twins are initially on the wrong side but once Ultron reveals himself they will jump on the hero wagon to save the day.

        In that set up there is room to shine for everybody, the new additions (Ultron, Vision, the twins) and the old roster.

        It is gonna be EPIC!!!!

    • or what has been a battle tested Marevl formula for 40 years

  2. I can’t wait, I’m So EXCITED for Avengers:Age of Ultron!!!!!

    I have ALL THE FAITH IN THE WORLD in Joss and his “Vision” (Lol, see what I did there?)

    Make Mine Marvel!!!!

  3. i think ive over looked these characters role in the movie… i thought they were gonna just be villains in the start to bring the avengers together since shield are gone but after more info has come out about them i think they are gonna be full fledged avengers by the end of the movie… i dont think they are just a one trick pony and are gonna be in the universe for the long run. they will be in avengers 3 against thanos.

    the last movie i was this excited for was the avengers lol… but i aint scared at all, marvel are gonna make it bigger and better than the first.

    • I dunno. I don’t think they’ll be full fledged, but I think you’re right about A3. Thanos will be a threat to the entire planet, not just the Avengers, so I think it’s safe to say that people they may have had fought in the past may actually help them out when he shows up.
      I think the twins are going to be the Baron’s attempt to attack the Avengers, but I don’t think they’ll like being controlled. They may rebel and not really be on anybody’s side.

      • i like your idea of them being sort of anti heroes.

        • Just call ‘em what they are…

          ‘Just paininthebutt kids’.

      • Thanos will be a threat to existence itself. Hello Uatu?

  4. So there will be a major death.

    Let’s see:
    Hawkeye? No
    Hulk? No
    Thor? No
    Captain America? Unlikely, unless Cap 3 is set in the past again.
    Iron Man? Then why would he be signed on for A3?

    Black Widow, Fury, or Maria Hill? I think these 3 need to stay in the series, especially with RDJ & Evans looking to leave.

    • No way, Hawkeye is totally dead. He’s the only one who doesn’t have solo films or have one in the works. Maria Hill is too small a character to make a big enough impact, Fury has to stay, the main 5 are too important, and they can’t pull the Coulson thing twice. It’s Hawkeye.

      • coulsen was a well loved character… really what is the point of killing someone that doesnt mean anything??? it just doesnt make sense and its not whedons style. if anyone is dying whedon will make sure its someone that is loved and that will leave an impact. like coulsen did. right now hawkeye is the least loved/known avengers. but i think they are making him a bigger character and not a pawn which im happy about since his current comic run is critically loved and is getting the awards.

        i still think the leading contender to be killed is iron man or captain america. iron man could give his knowledge and suits to a successor

        • I think the reason they’re giving him a bigger role in ths movie is because a) he whined about not having a bigger role in the last one and b) to create more love for him right before they kill him. It’s definitely not going to be Iron Man. He’s signed for Avengers 3 so he’s gonna make it at least that far. Evans is also signed for a few more movies so he’s not getting killed.

          I like this War Machine idea Uzmonkey. Is it official he’ll be in AoU?

          • renners complaints were totally justified. we didnt get hawkeye till the end because the character was just a pawn for loki. hawkeye is a very good character in the comics.

            • Yeah, but Jeremy Renner is a very unlikable actor.

          • The actor playing bucky is signed for more movies then evans. Im willing to bet cap gets capped, and bucky takes over like in the comics. Sebastian Stan is signed for 9, has appeared twice. evans had 6 major and has been in 3, aou being 4. other 2 could be flash backs or minor rolls. Either that or rhodey getting “killed” just to be brought back half cybernetic in another movie, but I really hope we dont lose warmachine yet.

            • I highly doubt he’s signed for flashbacks or minor roles. 1 is Cap 3 and the other is Avengers 3. Bucky will take over after that.

          • http://m.hitfix.com/motion-captured/confirmed-don-cheadle-will-suit-up-again-as-war-machine-for-avengers-age-of-ultron#ZQmD8iu0KDxei3TZ.99
            This is the nearest I can find to official confirmation right now. Seems everyone is being described as having a ‘key role’ lol.

        • Joss killed Coulson cause there was nothing else the character could do for the movies except die. Then the fan rage happened and oh look Agents of Shield resurrects him. it’s all ok now.

      • Far more likely to kill off War Machine. Notice how no-one is talking about him getting a spin-off anymore? And Whedon did say they were giving him some leeway this time with killing off a potential franchise. We’ve seen enough of War Machine and his relationship with Iron Man (especially in Iron Man 3) that it’ll be a blow to see him killed and it would certainly serve as a motivator for Stark. Mark my words, Iron Patriot is for the chop.

    • They could kill of Steve Rogers and bring Bucky/Winter Soldier in to play Captain America in Cap 3. But that would completely remove any chance of Marvel ever doing a Civil War in the movies.

      I think that the real true end “Villian” is going to be the Hulk. That way they can do the spin off they have planned for a new solo Hulk movie. With Strucker releasing the twins and Ultron being the main baddie throwing Hulk out there to do the killing would be a complete suprise to fans but somewhat expected.

      Captain America 3 should be titled “Return of the Red Skull” but thats just my opinion. They have to bring him back at some point… he never died just got ported elsewhere, also bring in Zemo.

    • Agree COMPLETELY!

      • Agree completely with rtXC, NOT you. I totally DISAGREE with you actually. But I don’t feel like wasting time writing my explanation for disagreeing, because its on nearly every hulk related page!

  5. Not sure why anyone would be surprised at mixing characters like Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver into the team roster. The Avengers roster has always been constantly changing. It was well known that they planned to mix other characters into the team throughout these films. Besides, the actors playing the current characters aren’t going to play these same characters forever. Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver have been part of The Avengers roster a lot over the years. “Every fan is likely just as curious to know how Marvel will handle the issue of the Maximoffs’ lineage – omitting their father (Magneto), or simply re-writing comic fiction?” Who cares? They aren’t going to mention Magneto and they won’t be mutants. We already know that because legally they can’t go that route. Comic fiction gets re-written all the time (both within the comics themselves and when doing movie or TV versions) but, in this case, these two characters had been around for almost 20 years before Magneto was announced as their father. The characters weren’t written to be his kids….that’s just some twist they came up with 20 years later to create new stories. So even making them his kids was “re-writing comic fiction”.

    • I thought they were “Unhumans” and had that whole alt universe story line of hidden people.

      • I guess it was “inhumans” and the connection according to Marvel continuity now, contrary to how I remember it from back in the day, is that Quicksilver married a “inhuman” royal. “inhumans” are an ancient race that had Krees splicing DNA from the Eternals (like Cannonball later story line dropped) into human DNA creating extraordinary powers to get super soldiers in their war against the Skrulls.

  6. I thought Quicksilver was already in X-men: DFP? How are FOX and Disney both using him? Did I miss something or am I mistaken?

    • apparently there is a loop hole because they were avengers before they were mutants.

      • Not sure I understand your post, Corey.
        Pietro and Wanda were always mutants, introduced in X-Men #4, long before they joined the Avengers in issue 16.

        • google it then

          • You google it! They are mutants from birth and join the Avengers later, no one said they joined the Avengers before, Kevin Feige just said that these 2 characters are in a grey area where both companies can use them because they are both murants and key Avengers.

    • lol you have been out of the loop for a while Yeti

      • ..no one explained it to me…now I’ll never know…

    • The answer to your question could actually be a clue about which character dies in the avengers. one of the quicksilvers will die, maybe the Avengers version. this eliminates the awkwardness of both characters in forthcoming films. Quciksilver could replace Banner as the token ‘character resentful of his gift’ hero

      • I think you’re correct, and I go for Quicksilver. Lets not forget he will be a Brit. We all know Brits play the nasty who gets killed, or the plucky side kick ( who gets killed). Either way it’s the Brit who gets it.

        • groovy character arcs abound if his lifespan is accelerated too. Joss deals with death well

  7. black widow dies, hawkeye dies and hulk dies. Mark my words. thor goes to hel to plead for banners release, in thor 3.

    • Thor and Hulk movie??


  8. Who dies? Hawkeye is my top pick. Cap seems safe. Tony could be on the block as well, he is in for a rough ride. Black Widow may opt out of being an Avenger, especially if Barton dies.

    Who will be left at the core to fight Thanos? Thor, Cap(Steve Rodgers), Scarlett Witch, Quicksilver, Iron Man(Rhodey), Vision, perhaps with Captain Marvel(Carol Danvers) in A3. Not a bad line-up of Avengers, not bad at all.

    • Forgot Hulk. He won’t be dead, but he may be a problem.

      My hope is that a Defender movie happens. If Ruffalo stays on as Hulk for a few more films it might. That would be incredible. Hulk, Dr. Strange, Valkyrie, Hawkeye if he survives A2 & A3, Daredevil as a cross-platform hero. 2 movies a year till 2028. Hell yes!

      • Hulkbuster armor is confirmed.

  9. Hulk is getting shot to outerspace…

    Cap will fight Stark and go “underground”

  10. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  11. First let me say I hope none of the heroes die. having said that, who would I keep, if i had to sacrifice some of the others? Well, I would keep Cap, Iron man, and Thor for sure, plus Coulson, and Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch as well. The ones I would reluctantly sacrifice (not in order) would be Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow, War Machine/Iron Patriot, Nick Fury, Maria Hill, Falcon, and Winter Soldier. I would also add to the keep and save column Goliath (Hank Pym) and Wasp (Janet Van Dyne). Sure, we have not seen them yet,but I keep hoping. Also on the sacrifice pile at this point would be Vision. I realize this is a little premature, but I am just speculating based on where I want the Avengers to go. Killing their big three (Cap, Iron man, Thor) would be like butchering their cash cow, as I think these three are the most popular. I was not sure I would like Thor (although I am a big fan of Cap and IM), but it turns out I don’t mind him at all, fits in good with the group.
    Lastly, I am very glad Quicksilver and SW are coming to Avengers-Land: two of the characters (along with Goliath and Wasp) who I most wanted to see on the team.

    • Two things to consider: contracts and # of movies. IM has 3. Cap and Thor are on their way to 3, Cap first. Rhodey replacing Stark is canon, it wasn’t permanent. But, it was early. War Machine came much later.Bucky will be Cap at some point, even if it is for a story where Cap has a comic book death. Civil War? Thor goes home, basic plot device with Thor, always works. Whedon is taking it to A3. RDJ will stay active until then, but it doesn’t mean he will necessarily be IM at all times. After A3 he could become director of SHIELD. Heck, might even be at the end of A2.

      Another is power level. Hawkeye is dead or maimed. Love Hawkeye, but dude is going down.

  12. I see this as a way for marvel to launch a West coast avengers franchise. We will have Hawkeye, quicksilver and scarlet witch , maybe even vision that is the start, spin them off into their own movie franchise it will be awesome. Plus that will get Jeremy Renner more screen time like he wants as he leads the new team. Just need to add mockingbird and wonder man and the team is rounded out.

  13. So in Godzilla, Aaron & Elizabeth are lovers. in Avengers 2 they’re siblings.
    It must be weird for them on set

    • Well, ironically, this would be perfect if it were the Ultimate Universe. Lol

  14. Nothing we dont know already…zzz…

  15. Could the twins be of Asgard, somehow? But born on Earth, half human?

  16. I can see them killing off supporting characters too. It could happen relatively early in the movie to establish that everybody is free game.

  17. Why is it so weird that the actors went from playing lovers to siblings, in the Ultimates comics Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver had a incestuous relationship, so why not show that in the movie? Seriously, if homosexual relationships are okay, incestuous relationships should be too! It’s just common sense!

  18. So, Whedon comes up to you and asks you to be in Avengers 2…and you have to think about it for a year?!?!?!

  19. Perhaps Ultron “kills” Thor like he did in the “The Avengers:Earths mightiest heroes” cartoon series. It sets up the enchantress who breaks him out of nesphilheim. For a then ungrateful Thor who struggles to catch up on all he has missed with the realms in danger from Surter. Surter starts to eke his way out with Odin away in Loki’s prison and Thor assumed dead it’s the perfect time for him to strike. And is also the most unlikely avenger to die. His apparent death would build anticipation for Thor 3, all the fans wanting to know “how he gets out of this one” kind of deal. Who knows. Just a thought.

    • Ryan, that was what I was thinking too…it would certainly fit with Whedon to “pull a fast one” so to speak, with his comic knowledge he knows that really noone stays dead in that type of world (99% of the time anyway). So that might be a way to “kill” a major character for impact…but not permanently.

  20. Ok so this is how I see everything. Regarding contracts and story lines, the four major characters will not die in AoU. Here’s why? Iron Man is contracted up to A3, Hulk is reported lately to have a solo movie after A2 so he’s not being booted off. Thor’s last movie ended with a big ??? so he’ll need a follow up solo to give some closure as to what happened to Odin. Hmm now Captain America is the tricky one but given that Chris Evans is scheduled to be in Cap 3 I don’t think he’ll die just yet. They’re probably saving that story for Cap 3 in order for Bucky to take over so he can be in A3. Black Widow is getting a solo movie (I think)plus it wouldn’t be cool to kill off the main female. Hawkeye is being upgraded to a major role so I don’t think the director is building him up to tear him down. Plus I don’t think he will eliminate new comers (that wouldn’t make much sense either). So my guess is he wont kill anyone this trip but if he should it might be Cap or Thor. I like Ryan’s theory about killing him (purportedly) to set up Thor 3. Sounds interesting, plus that would leave fans in shock, awe, confusion and anticipation to see the next Thor movie. It all makes sense, plus they could introduce characters like Sutur, Enchantress, Beta Ray Bill.

  21. I think it’s interesting that, in the first Avengers movie, Hawkeye started off as a bad guy, and then joined the team after being sponsored by Black Widow (who, herself had red on her ledger). And now in the second Avengers movie, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will likely start off as bad guys, and then (from what I can tell from the photos) Hawkeye will probably sponsor them in to the team.

    Good writers always construct interesting parallels.

  22. Am I the only one who thinks the 2 producing studios should just do a “merger” on the avengers-xmen deal? I would love to see the 2 super hero worlds collide in some way… or even if they worked in a West Coast Avengers somehow! this world of comic book movies are limitless and i feel like they are only touching a tip of the ice berg on the whole marvel world!

  23. Excelsior!! I can’t wait for this movie. As for killing off characters……hello!! this is marvel. How many times has any hero been killed and brought back. Heck Agents of Shield’s T.A.H.I.T.I was a program to bring back any avenger. Only Fox has screwed that up with X-men. Honestly, Petro and Wanda’s background is hardly needed even less so Magneto’s lineage. For all we know, they don’t know yet, no has seen Wundagore in any movie. I would love to see cameo’s of other avengers, Beast, Spiderman, Hercules, Wonderman, Moondragon, Ms.Marvel, Namor, even the Thing.

    Make Mine Marvel!!

  24. It would be awesome to see all the movie franchises to work together and make an xmen, spider man, fantastic four, avengers, guardians movie. But I realize that its different studios. Aside from that, the quicksilver character will be in age of altron and later this month in days of futures past, different actors obviously. What im getting at is, can Disney, if they wanted to, add their own versions of magneto, spider man, or the x-men into their avengers movie if they wanted to? I really wouldn’t mind that if they could. Again, Id love to see the current actors in their respective roles, but I wouldn’t be against having different actors playing the same characters in different movies. Anyways, itd be pretty damn cool.

  25. please don’t kill those both character, i love them both, and big fans of quicksilver, this is why i can’t for so long to wait this movie,
    i know it would be awesome, i begging you whedon!!

  26. Ummm.. yeah i wont be surprised or upset if they kill iron man to be honest Im tired of seeing him so much even though everyone loves him..he takes all of the heros spotlights..have him die. Hes been through too much..realistically he wont live long or kill black widow shes alright but has been around and doesnt do anything amazing…give Hawkeye a break!!!! Hes legit. As for the 4 million super heroes beeing added to the film..too overcrowded..now marvel is pushing there luck!! If anything add more villains..how do you figure tht one hera can fight alot of villains (Thor, ironman, captain america 2, etc.) and one villain can fight alot of heroes (Avengers)..how does this make sense??…u cant make a good superhero movie without villain(s)..

  27. The thing with the twins is they are still magnetos children and they need to be introduced. Firstly the avengers has so many different heroes all ranging in age and species. Secondly Wanda Maximoff is a huge part of the Marvel universe. Without her there is no House of M or Civil War or any of that. She needed to be added and truthfully I can’t wait for AOU.

  28. Two words people. SECRET WARS. Let’s get it done.

  29. The only problem I have is that they are from the X-Men series so what are they doing the Marvel’s Avengers series. So confused. Sorry.
