In DOFP, the character will be called Quicksilver, will only be used for one action scene, will have a completely different actor, will be American, and given how small his role is the general audience might not even remember the character much at all after the film.
However, in Avengers 2, the character will be known as Pietro, he will have an integral and large role in the film, he will be british, and the source of his powers will be completely different and fleshed out.
The only discernable similarity between the two characters for the general audience will be their powers. Otherwise they will be completely different as actual concepts. I don't see think this will confuse anyone and I doubt a lot of people will be able to make any connection between the two films.
Agreed.. The only thing I'm unsure of is the whole naming issue. Feige only said Marvel can't call the siblings mutants or reference their genetic link to Magneto. Fox on the other hand can't reference the Avengers. He never said they can't use the name Quicksilver (or Scarlet Witch). This seems like a pretty big oversight, unless it's not true. Until I hear it from Fox or Marvel I'll take it with a grain of salt. Spideyboy made a good point in the DoFP forums about toy and merchandise sales. I think you'd sell a lot more goodies if the characters were named Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch rather then just Pietro and Wanda.
