Whedon hints at 2 more characters we're gonna see in Avengers 2

Marvel has already done a good job of expanding the comic universe on the big screen, and now Avengers director Joss Whedon is teasing two more characters he wants to include in the sequel.

While strolling the red carpet for the premiere of Iron Man 3, Whedon opened up about what he’s working on for part two of the epic team-up, which will bookend Phase 2 of Marvel’s master plan in a few years.

The latest addition? A sibling duo, which many fans believe to be Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch, two characters that have bounced between The Avengers and X-Men in the comic continuity. It's hard to say who might have the film rights to those characters (as they might be lumped in with the X-Men deal), but if they're free, it sounds like Whedon could make good use of them.

Check out Whedon’s comment below:

"I have finished a draft and I'm redoing it now. I think it's in really good shape. We're in a very good place ... I've got these two characters, two of my favorite characters from the comic book, a brother-sister act. They're in the movie."

It definitely sounds like he could be teasing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, though this being Whedon, he could just totally be screwing with us. It’s hard to tell. Regardless, it’s nice to know he’s elbow-deep in Avengers stuff trying to get it all figured out.

Who do you think Whedon is referencing? Or is he just trying to plant some misdirection?
