A source has confirmed to Entertainment Weekly, that Joss Whedon has indeed written twin characters Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch into his Avengers 2 screenplay.

Confirmed: Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver in Avengers 2
Avengers Origins: The Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver

Whedon had teased the inclusion of  a brother-sister act – in the comics, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are the children of mutant supervillain Magneto – when he spoke to Yahoo! at the red carpet of the Iron Man 3 premiere in LA on April 25.

EW put this to Marvel Studios head, Kevin Feige for an on-the-record comment and he played it cool, saying:

“I’m not confirming or denying. The draft could change six months from now.”

Marvels Avengers 2 will hit cinemas in May 2015.
