The big buzz in nerd world is that director Bryan Singer tweeted that he plans to include Quicksilver in the X-men sequel. Since Quicksilver and his sister the Scarlett Witch are shared characters between Fox and Marvel and since Joss Whedon has already revealed that he planned to include them in the Avengers 2, this has led to a lot of fan chatter about whether or not this means that Evan Peters (recently cast in X-men: Days of Future Past as Quicksilver) will cross over into the Marvel U in Avengers 2 as the speedster. And if this means that Fox and Disney are hammering out licensing agreements that might end with maybe seeing some X-men in future Avengers movies.
Either way, it’s still a good time to be a nerd.
Speaking of the Avengers and the Scarlett Witch, actress Saoirse Ronan has heard of the rumors that they wrote the character thinking of her and would like to try out for the role herself
I have heard about it and yes, I would. Yeah, of course I would. I love Joss and I love those films, and I love his handle on them and how he portrayed these kinds of superheroes. I think it’s very different from what anyone else has done. So yeah, I’d love to be in it.
Henry Cavill, soon to be seen as the titular character in Man of Steel, would like to do a World’s Finest movie, teaming up with Batman.
Do you want to see a life size reproduction of an X-wing starfighter made out of Legos?
Of course you do, fellow nerd.
