Fox has been a bit late in bringing in Magneto's kids. One good way of getting round the fact they've never been mentioned is to have them as his children in an alternate reality where things turned out differently.

See my main consern is which franchise would properly develop the characters and give them appropriate screen time to justify their inclusion. That would be Avengers. Singer already has a whole lot of characters to juggle and he hasn't had the best track record of giving the supporting characters and particularly the villains much development outside of Magneto. His use of the characters is suspect at best. Whedon on the other hand has already demonstrated a keen sense of balance when approaching an ensemble cast and has expressed interest in featuring them (not simple background characters) in the next Avengers. I would prefer to see the characters get the proper treatment and appropriate screen time and that's something I think Whedon will deliver on more than Singer.

You can already tell the difference in the roles the characters would have with the casting. Singer just hires Evan Peters, who isn't a scrub or anything, but he's no up and coming young actors like Aaron Johnson and Saoirse Ronan.

Uh, I would most definitely say Evan Peter's is a young, up and coming actor. He's been consistently getting critical acclaim for his performance in both seasons of American Horror Story, and was one of the first to sign on to the third season.

The kid is definitely on the map right now.

Like I said, he's not a scrub but he isn't an Aaron Johnson or Saoirse Ronan. Those two are on a different level right now, especially Ronan.

I'd give you Ronan - but Johnson isn't even on the same level as Ronan.

That's why I said especially Ronan. By the same token thought Peters isn't on the level with Johnson.

Your bias is showing.

Ronan wasn't even that well-liked until this rumour of her being Scarlet Witch came out.

Ronan wasn't well liked? What world were you living in? This has nothing to do with bias, there's a clear difference in the level between Evan Peters and Aaron Johnson and Saoirse Ronan. You can't argue this, it's fact.

I saw Kick-Ass, but like Evan Peters, I had no idea about Aaron Johnson until this news came out. And for Saoirse Ronan, I know she was in the movies that weren't really good like the Lovely Bones and The Host. Even if she was nominated for Golden Globes/Oscars, I definitely don't hear her name a lot. You made it sound like these two are already superstars, no they aren't.

And if you really wanna compare the cast of DOFP and Avengers 2, flash news. The cast of DOFP is more talented and they won more prestigious awards.

I never said or even implied they were superstars. Nor did I ever compare the casts between the two movie, I'm talking specifically about the casting of the Maximoffs. Don't twist words.

Its the same thing, you are comparing cast members from both series.

No one even brought the name of Ronan/Aaron here until you mentioned it.

That's not even half true. Ronan has been getting acclaim from critics and moviegoers alike after "The Lovely Bones", "Hanna", and even that crappy movie "The Host."

Not to mention she has tons of movies lined up from here on out. She's definitely a girl making a name for herself and looks to have a bright future ahead of her.

She's still not that popular.
