Default Re: Emily Blunt = Scarlet Witch?

With the way the deal seems to be phrased part of me wonders if Disney and Fox are working together to add X-Men into the Marvel universe. Scarlet Witch and Quick Silver can be used in the X-Men and they can be used in the Avengers, they just can't mention certain things. That's easy enough. But, can they be played by the same actress and actor?

Just the way that deal was phrased seems really odd and fishy to me for some reason. It's like they both have plans to use them. And if that's the case, why would Fox let go of the rights -- unless they've decided on some joint-studio thing? Or are there really going to be two Scarlet Witches and two Quicksilvers within the next five years (which doesn't seem likely)? Basically it's just phrased severely awkwardly.

"We both have them," Feige told Superhero Hype last summer. "There's a specific arrangement with those two characters that would allow us to use them with 'Avengers,' but not discuss or reference their mutant or Magneto-related lineage. They can use them as mutants and as Magneto's relatives, but cannot have anything to do with 'The Avengers'."

It seems like Fox has plans to use them, and if so why let go of the characters and why have duplicates? This wouldn't be the first time major studios have worked together.
