Also in superhero news, Joss Whedon recently gave an interview promoting his new film, Much Ado About Nothing, in which he touches upon the upcoming Avengers 2. Whedon mentioned that Loki, the first film’s antagonist played by Tom Hiddleston, will not be back in the highly anticipated sequel, at least not in any major capacity at this time. Marvel’s The Avengers 2 will be released on May 1st, 2015.

Whedon Confirms Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in Avengers 2

AvengersSpeaking to IGN at ABC’s Upfront this week, Joss Whedon confirmed that the mutant siblings, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, are indeed in Avengers.

“You know, they had a rough beginning. They’re interesting to me because they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier. I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier.”

Not sure what that “rough beginnings” statement means, but could be alluding to the brother sister duo’s origins being tied up with Magneto which is the part of the Marvel verse owned by Fox.  If that’s the case, then it appears something was worked out to everyone’s satisfaction.

That may not be the case with all of the Avengers.  Ign further reports that several of the original cast may be replaced due to contract differences.

Call me intrigued.  This trailer has caught my interest quite a bit, and I’ll be giving it a watch.  I’m just a little put off by the young, rebellious, mouthy narrator — because she seems a tad bit the obligatory character — but I’ll keep my options open.

And Coulson’s alive.  Worth the watch just for that.
