Default Re: Avengers 2 and X-Men DoFP are both using Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch

Does it make sense to continue avoiding the addition of Ant-Man and Wasp? Founding members of the team?

Falcon is *probably* joining the team for TA2, and War Machine is *possibly*, so there's some racial diversity right there. If Scarlet Witch joins in TA2, she will be only the second woman to join the sausagefest, so there's some gender diversity right there. Quicksilver doesn't add any diversity to the mix, granted, but he's sort of a package deal with Wanda.
