    Whedon has already hinted that SW/QS will star out as antagonists who don't agree with the Avengers or their methods. That would seem to indicate that they probably won't be SHIELD Agents.

    I'm just waiting to see how all the subplots will fit together. More than likely Wanda will be the one that's more prone to want to give them a chance while Quicksilver doesn't want anything to do with them.

    Or maybe Johnson won't want to play Pietro as a prick and *****e but as an extremely affable, amiable and well-mannered young man who keeps normal coloured hair because anything else (like platinum) is too edgy for his genteel tastes. :oldrazz:

    Platinum hair in a superhero movie is not the least bit edgy. Dirty blonde will do.

    *Cyrus.

    I could live with dirty blonde but it didn't quite suit aaron in Anna karenina. I would rather platinum

    Has magic been confirmed for Scarlet Witch? Or is it going to be more or less, mutant abilities like telekinesis, etc?

    Cap trained wanda on hand to hand so I'm sure she'll get a few punches in.

    I watched Marcy May last night. It wasn't the best film but she was pretty good in it. I can see why Whedon and marvel would choose her as she's obviously good at playing psychologically damaged people who have been taking advantage of

    I'm really hoping to hear great MCU news/cast confirmations this weekend. Especially for A:AoU, AoS and Ant-man as well.

    Won't be hearing anything about Ant-Man and I'd be surprised to hear anything about Age of Ultron. NYCC is more comic oriented, like SDCC was back in the day...as it should be.

    In the words of Danny Huston in Magic City "adapt or die." SDCC wouldn't be nearly as huge as it's become if they just focused on Comics.

    It should be renamed "The San Diego Entertainment Convention" because it ceased to be about comic books long ago. There have been many suggestions for improving the con for people there and expanding access to the panels for those not in attendance but the organizers have rejected all solutions. They believe that making people camp out for days to get seats in Hall H is preferable to issuing tickets and providing CCTV viewing in overflow rooms.

    I'm really excited for this movie. I'm glad I've lived long enough to see a multiple comic movies and TV shows becoming more and more mainstream and it's own legitimate genre. I know there are already a zillion heroes that have to be juggled for this flick as is, but is really would have loved for Wasp and a version of Pym to have made an appearance in this.

    Ah well, I'm still looking forward to this.:word:

    But then they'd have to have the acronym as SDEC, which doesn't have the same established look as SDCC.

    Maybe they can think of a different "C" to replace "comics."

    Cinematic?

    Creativity?

    Kevin Feige interview quote:

    What can you say about Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age of Ultron?
    "They’re going to be incredibly exciting and live adventures! No, I can’t say much about it. Joss of course has revealed that they will play a huge part in the movie, they will play a huge part in the movie. But, we can’t say much more than that."

    Are they good guys or bad guys in the movie?
    "Well, we take all of our inspiration from the comics, so... Clues exist !"


    I think that means that they will start off as opponents and end up as Avengers.

    Could be right. Maybe Wanda and Pietro will be impoverished and homeless after being abandoned by their parents, so they use their powers to steal in order to survive. That would bring them into conflict with the Avengers and SHIELD initially, but then they would be given a chance to redeem themselves when our heroes learn that they were only stealing for survival. Just a thought.

    I think they'll introduce the origin/source of their powers through Marvel Agents of Shield.

    It would seem a little odd that shield would send the avengers after two people stealing a loaf of bread though.

    I reckon at the end of captain America 2 Steve and widow will find themselves incarcerated for a crime they didn't commit. There they meet the twins who offer to help break them out but only if they liberate the twins too.

    I reckon the twins will be in the prison for low level super villainy that will be explained further as the movie goes on

    I definitely think they'll be the product of some kind of super soldier program, possibly run by AIM.

    Business might be slow. SHIELD might have nothing better to do. It could be the silly season, but at the end of the day the agents still need to put bread on the table.
