It will be difficult to explain where they got their powers from without refering to mutants, which they will not be allowed to do I assume. Esp considering the big coincidence that both brother and sister have gained superpowers.
I seriously doubt there's any plans for SW & QS in Avengers 2, also, but #3 might be a possibility. Neither Marvel nor Fox have shown any inclination to fast-track those characters for either Avengers or X-Men, but a coupla three years from now, who knows?
As for the whole mutant thing, there's nothing to say that Marvel Studios (or Sony, for that matter) isn't allowed to have mutation as a source of superpowers. Technically, Hulk and Spider-Man are mutants; and Typhoid Mary, who appeared in Elektra,
is actually *classified* as an X-gene mutant in the comics. There's probably a lot of leeway there; but even if there isn't, it would be easy enough for Wanda and Pietro's powers to derive from a different source in Avengers. Genetic manipulation, alien breeding, true magic and witchcraft, nuclear accidents, any of the usual suspects.
