In an interview with IGN, Whedon confirmed the rumor that Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch, two popular characters from the Marvel Universe, will be appearing in the sequel.

In the comics, the two were siblings that first appeared in the “X-Men” comics in 1964 and have made appearances in “Avenger” story lines over the years.

Fans were already excited to see at the end of the first film that Thanos would be the main villain in the next pic and this should only get them more excited.
