As explained by Kevin Feige, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are a unique, special case in which both Marvel and Fox have rights to Wanda and Pietro, with stipulations: Marvel cannot refer to their mutant origins/relationship to Magneto, and Fox cannot refer to their association to the Avengers.

So in theory, SW and QS could show up in both an X-film and in the MCU, and possibly even be played by the same actors (though they'd have to have separate and non-conflicting contracts with each studio).

I think the Skrulls are the only other characters with a similar (but different) situation, where Fox specifically owns the rights to the original Super-Skrull and can probably use the Skrull Empire, while Marvel can only use generic Skrulls and the Skrull Empire as well. I don't know about the Super-Skrull that possesses the Avengers' powers.

Edit: Sam, I guess I took too long in looking for the original interview, haha.
