Yet another Avengers news item.

Okay first of all, Joss Whedon has confirmed that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are going to be in Avengers 2.

But NOW, Brian Singer has tweeted that Quicksilver is also going to be in "X-Men: Days Of Future Past". are Fox and Marvel going to juggle that???
This will be interesting....

It's funny, not exactly "ha-ha" funny, that "X-men: Days Of Future Past" has been in production for months now---is filming, with leaked set photos of Hugh Jackman and Ellen Page and others in costume and everything---and that this is the first word of any kind that Quicksilver will be on the roster for that film.

Only now, *after* Marvel has confirmed the intent to use the (presumably somehow non-mutant) Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in "Avengers 2", does Bryan Singer happen to mention that, whoops, they're also using the character.

Not as a key plot element or anything, as, presumably, Joss Whedon was (and perhaps still is) likely intending; word on the streets is it's just for a single action sequence.

A plot-integral one? Or something Fox, oh, maybe had tacked on, on the fly, just to be dicks?

Gentlemen of Fox Studios, there is a word for this kind of behavior:
