Avengers 2

Joss Whedon Talks Quicksilver, the Scarlet Witch and Iron Man's Roles in Avengers 2

Joss Whedon is certainly keeping busy with Marvel. Having written and directed the mega-blockbuster, The Avengers, he is now launching Marvel’s first live-action TV show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., while also preparing Marvel's The Avengers 2.


I spoke to Whedon this week at ABC’s Upfront, where S.H.I.E.L.D. was being announced and asked him a couple of questions about Avengers 2 and some of the characters in it.

Whedon had previously alluded to a brother/sister duo being in the film, which EW later said was indeed Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. When I brought up Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch to Whedon, he confirmed they were the characters in question, explaining, “You know, they had a rough beginning. They’re interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier. I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier.”

We also know Tony Stark/Iron Man plays another large role in the sequel, but the end of Iron Man 3 saw Tony destroying all the Iron Man suits we knew about, while seemingly stepping back from his time in the armor.

When I asked Whedon if that made it a challenge putting Iron Man in Avengers 2, he remarked, “Well, I feel like in Iron Man 3, even though he said, ‘I’ve changed' -- he blew up his remote suits, but I don’t think anybody thinks he doesn’t have one anymore. The question is, if The Avengers are called, does he show up? And the answer is, ‘Yes!’”

Did Nick Fury Recruit Elizabeth Olsen for 'Avengers 2'?

He may be a high-ranking officer of S.H.I.E.L.D., but Samuel L. Jackson isn't very good at keeping insider secrets.

The man known to Marvel fans as Nick Fury unilaterally gave Wall Street Journal readers a top-secret security clearance (probably much to Marvel's dismay) when he let slip that Elizabeth Olsen has joined the cast of one of the most anticipated sequels of all time, "Marvel's The Avengers: The Age of Ultron."

Jackson, who made a cameo appearance as Fury in this week's episode of NBC's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," mentioned Olsen's involvement when asked about the status of Joss Whedon's highly guarded comic book epic.

[Related: The 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Cast on What's Next: 'Wait Till You See Episode 2']

"I know we're shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. [Elizabeth] Olsen, but I don’t know what she's doing, if she's on the inside or the outside," said Jackson. "I haven’t seen a script."

Olsen, the younger sister of legendary child stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, burst onto the scene with her harrowing performance in 2011's "Martha Marcy May Marlene." The fanboy rumor mill has been churning in recent months with talk that the younger Olsen had been slated for a role in the "Avengers" sequel. Many have speculated that she'll be playing the Scarlet Witch, one half of the "brother-sister act" that Whedon first mentioned at the premiere of "Iron Man 3."

Twin siblings Pietro Maximoff, aka Quicksilver, and Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch, made their comic book debut in "X-Men" No. 4 in 1964. As the offspring of Magneto, they were portrayed as bad guys for a few issues before switching sides and joining up with the Avengers in 1965. Scarlet Witch is gifted with the power to manipulate probability and reality via her "hexes," which usually manifest as cool-looking "hex bolts" or "hex spheres," while Quicksilver is able to move and think at super-sonic speeds.

This isn't the first time that Samuel L. Jackson has let a Marvel-related scoop out of the bag. During the press conference for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" at this summer's San Diego Comic-Con, Jackson mentioned that the upcoming political thriller will feature an interesting new character arc for Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson).

[Related: Mutant Twins Mania! Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch Confirmed For 'Marvel's The Avengers 2']

"She might have something of a 'whistleblower' in her future," said Jackson, to which the Captain himself, Chris Evans, responded with a playfully incredulous "SAM!" and told him to shush.

Before we supposedly see them together in "Avengers 2," Jackson and Olsen will appear together in Spike Lee's "Oldboy," which opens on November 27. "Age of Ultron" will begin production next spring with a likely release date of May 1, 2015.

Also, Brian Tyler will score Avengers 2.

He scored Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World, which I thought were both better than Alan Silvestri's score for the first Avengers, and I loved his work on Children of Dune.

It'll be interesting to see how they portray Scarlet Witch's powers. I'm not huge on the comics but I remember that chick being incredibly powerful in certain incarnations. She could whisper a sentence and change reality and shit..

Yeah, they can't use 'no more mutants', but she's one of those characters whose powers are not only ambiguous, but they change wildly in power level, depending on who is writing. Sometimes her little hex blobs can just cause a water main to break or something, other times she has vast magical powers and can rewrite physical laws or empower magical artifacts. Usually there's some demon or another mixed up in things.

So who knows. They have a lot of leeway with her.

That's what I was thinking. It'll be interesting to see.

It also sucks they can't involve Magneto somehow.

I thought I'd read somewhere that the same actor was going to play Quicksilver in both Avengers 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past, but according to IMDB, they're different actors.

That's a bummer. They could've subtlety tied the two franchises together there.

Yeah different actors different looks. I'm more a fan of the Avengers one from the concept art I've seen.

It's pissing me off.

I think the new X-Men movie will be good enough to keep Marvel's hands off the rights for 5 or 6 years.

The FF movie will flop and they can get those in 3 or 4. It's pushing the Infinity Gauntlet story we all know they want to make years off...

What would it cost Marvel to just buy the rights to the X-Men back? At this point it might be worth the cost to see a Secret Wars/Infinity Gauntlet movie-series.

I think it would be better to just say to FOX, "look, you let us use the intellectual property, you get X%. We're better than you and everybody knows it. Take the money without the expense or risk and hitch your wagon to the golden goose."

If I'm FOX I have a hard time turning that down, as long as the money is decent.
