Avengers Sequel Update

Brother and Sister join the Cast

With the LA premiere of Iron Man 3 last night at the El Capitan in Hollywood (Disney’s official theater) news of another Marvel sequel arrived. Avengers director, Joss Whedon, was on hand and was very forthcoming about his sequel in the wake of Shane Black’s Iron Man 3. Whedon spoke with Yahoo Movies (via Collider.com) about where he is in the writing process and what new characters we will see. 

Joss Whedon on Avengers 2:

“I have actually finished a draft and I’m redoing it now. I think it’s in really good shape. We’re in a very good place… It’s going really well, eventually someone will explain to me that it’s not and pull me out of my bubble. I’ve been writing and meeting with actors and we’re starting to storyboard, all the preliminary processes. This is the part where it’s all still fun.”

Will there be any new characters?

“I’ve got these two characters, two of my favorite characters from the comic book, a brother-sister act. They’re in the movie.”

Gee I wonder who that is going to be? Hello Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver!

Whedon also spoke of topping his original Avengers film and now Iron Man 3.

“I try not to think of it as topping it. I try to think of this as its own movie. Sometime yeah, I feel pressure and by the way, Shane [Black] not helping, Iron Man 3 not helping, because I saw this and man he really got it right. But when you’re in the story and you’re dealing with these characters that you love, that everybody loves, when you’ve got the new characters sliding in next to them it’s very exciting. Then I don’t feel pressure, it’s like I’m reading my favorite comic.”

Let’s get right down to it. Who would you cast as the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver?

 Alex Pettyfer and Olga Kurylenko.

Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch with no Magneto. LAME. Another reason why Fox should have never had the X-Men. If they did not they could even have Wolverine in the Avengers, which in the comics kicks ass.

It is a cool idea though and I am sure Whedon will handle it well. But the disconnect between the father and children will be hard to gloss over.

I thought Alex Pettyfer would have been a great Havoc. Or if they would ever do A Batman Beyond movie I can see him being Terry Mcguiness and Clint Eastwood as an aged Batman/Bruce Wayne

Whatt if it's Broother and Sister voodoo

 Will it be awkward to explain who they are? Perhaps. Will Whedon carry it off? Yes.

 I was hoping Bro and Sister duo - Minister Blood.

What would that be?

Any chance he isn't talking about Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver?  Of course, that is immediately who I thought of, but wasn't sure if there were any other brother/sister combos out there.  I know it is a 99% probability that is who he is talking about, though.

So Pietro is going to see the (Quick)silver screen before the Flash.  Sigh...  Good for Marvel.  DC, get your act together!  :)

 Northstar and Aurora? Power Pack? I can't think of any others that the pair could be. Any other ideas?
