Last week Joss Whedon said his first draft of The Avengers 2 includes a "brother-sister act" who were two of his favorite characters from The Avengers comics. We speculated he meant Scarlet Witch And Quicksilver, AKA Wanda and Pietro Maximoff, the fraternal twin children of Magneto (Fox’s X-Men franchise) who later joined The Avengers (Marvel’s franchise). Both Fox and Marvel have the rights to the characters. Now we have an update and a cosplay gallery.
EW reports Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are the siblings in that first draft according to an anonymous source. When they contacted Kevin Feige (President of Production at Marvel Studios) for a comment, he said, "I'm not confirming or denying. The draft could change six months from now."
To celebrate the news, we've collected some of our favorite Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver cosplay photos. Admittedly, most of these are Scarlet Witch, because Quicksilver isn't a common character. One thing is certain, if Quicksilver makes it to the final draft of The Avengers 2, we'll be seeing a lot more cosplay of him in the future. And we'll probably have another gallery of these siblings later, since we didn't realize just how many Scarlet Witch cosplayers are out there. Not that we're complaining.
