Last month, we excitedly told you that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch might be appearing in The Avengers 2. Well, Bryan Singer has tweeted that the character of Quicksilver will actually be in X-Men: Days of Future Past, and he will be played by Evan Peters (Kick-Ass). See Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch were Magneto’s children before they went on to join the Avengers, so they are free to be used in both the Fox-owned X-Men and the Disney-owned Avengers movies. Was adding Quicksilver and intentional "fuck you" to Joss Whedon or just some nerd-director gamesmanship? We guess we won’t know for sure until the two battle to the death at Comic-Con 2014.
