  1. Rumor: Quicksilver in Avengers 2 and Days of Future Past Doesn’t Mean Crossover

    Insidery

    When Bryan Singer announced not just the presence of Quicksilver, but the casting of his character yesterday, it shocked people. Well, it shocked people who heard about it. And who also know that Joss Whedon has confirmed that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are going to be in The Avengers 2. And who also know that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are mutants. And who also know that mutant characters were thought to all have been licensed to Fox. So it shocked, well, some, who wondered whether this was the first salvo in a legal battle over who has the licensing rights to a couple of characters who are equally mutants and Avengers, or even whether this was the first unlooked for sign of a possible crossover between the X-Men movie continuity and the Marvel Cinematic universe.

  2. Quicksilver Cast in X-Men Movie, Internet Grapples With Intellectual Property Rights

    The only logical way to settle this is for Joss Whedon and Bryan Singer to wrestle for him.

    Today Bryan Singer announced on his Twitter that actor Evan Peters will be joining the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past...as Quicksilver. Curious, considering that about a week ago Joss Whedon confirmed that Quicksilver is in the script for the upcoming Avengers 2, along with Scarlet Witch. So how exactly is this going to work?

  3. Joss Whedon Straight Up Confirms Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver for Avengers 2, Because Joss Whedon

    Hollywood and the film industry at large are notoriously wary of spilling the beans about, well, anything. They'd rather not confirm anything. Teasing up until the very last minute is more their style, as everyone that follows entertainment news is well aware. The further away from release, the more likely this kind of winking is to happen. These guidelines apparently do not apply to Joss Whedon.

  4. Forget Secrecy: Joss Whedon Casually, 100% Confirms Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver for The Avengers 2

    Excelsior!

    Unlike some filmmakers we could mention *cough*nolanandabrams*cough*, Joss Whedon is willing to just drop something pretty big and interesting about a project that isn't due to hit theaters for two years yet. I'm not saying there isn't room for more than one way to talk about your movie while it's in production, I'm just saying... I'm just saying it's exciting to hear that we're getting at least two female superheroes in The Avengers 2.

  5. More Hints at Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in The Avengers 2

    Mutatis Mutandis

    With Joss Whedon's mention, on the red carpet of Iron Man 3's Los Angeles premiere, that he'd managed to "lock" in his favorite brother/sister characters into the script for The Avengers 2, comics fans were very surprised, for a semi-complicated reason. It seemed very much like Whedon was hinting at the roles of Wanda and Pietro Maximoff, alias Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, reformed members of a terrorist group who were a major part of the second incarnation of the Avengers, lead by Captain America. What's surprising about this is that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are mutants, and were long thought to probably be characters that Marvel Entertainment couldn't touch due to licensing agreements that left the X-Men and their supporting characters with Fox Studios. But was Whedon really hinting at Magneto's wayward twins, or at a different sibling pair? According to Entertainment Weekly's sources, it's mutants all the way down.

  6. Crossoverlicious: Marvel Does Tron Variant Covers

    When the Marvel/Disney merger was made official, a lot of people immediately plundered the wide ranging crossover potential, from Spider-Man in Kingdom Hearts to a Beast buddy movie. Today we see the first shamelessly tied in fruit of that union, in the form of a series of variant covers for Marvel's November titles, where ten of Marvel's biggest characters get reinterpreted Tron-style.
