An unidentified insider confirms rumors that the brother and sister duo will appear in the sequel, although Kevin Feige reveals the script may change.

The Avengers 2 Qucksilver and The Scarlet Witch rumors heat up
The Avengers 2 director Joss Whedon set off a fanboy frenzy last week, when he cryptically teased that Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch may be featured in The Avengers 2. Adding more fuel to that fire is an unidentified source who has "confirmed" that the brother and sister superheroes will be a part of that story. However, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige would not say one way or another.

"I'm not confirming or denying. The draft could change six months from now."

The characters first appeared in Marvel's X-Men comic books, as villains under the nefarious Magneto, before later being recruited into The Avengers. The Scarlet Witch, a.k.a. Wanda Maximoff, has the ability to control and manipulate probabilities. Her brother Quicksilver, a.k.a. Pietro Maximoff, has the gift of super-human speed.

The only thing that has been confirmed regarding The Avengers 2 is that Joss Whedon is directing from his own screenplay, which he just recently completed.

Avengers: Age of Ultron comes to theaters May 1st, 2015 and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Elizabeth Olsen, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.

    @undeadslayer4 Yes, but I was referring to Mark Ruffalo's version of the Hulk. Maybe we'll see scarlet witch and quicksilver in The Avengers 2.

    I think we will not see them in Avengers 2, better off sticking with who's already established. I rather see Ant-Man and Wasp!

    @immortalfury...No, cuz Marvel Studios is actually allowed to use Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch even though FOX owns them as well, so long as they are not mentioned to be mutants or have any relation to Magneto...Sorry buddy, no Avengers/X-Men crossover, not atleast while FOX still owns the X-Universe

    wouldn't that require the the inclusion of the xmen and mutant universe into the avengers and possibly lead to a wolverine appearance in a later avengers? because once you include scarlet witch and quicksilver there is no way to avoid magneto or the xmen for that matter and lets face it, Wolverine is the most prominent name when it comes to mutants, well besides, professor x, jean grey and magneto and namor.

    I'm taking a "we'll see" approach on all Avengers 2 stories. Between this and the Thanos stuff out there right now, it seems to me like Whedon is just playing mind games at the moment.
