For several months we've known that the follow-up to 2012's 'The Avengers' would introduce 2 new characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Wanda and Pietro Maximoff, better known as Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver respectively, are set to join the superhero team when 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' hits theaters in the summer of 2015.
What we weren't completely sure about until yesterday (11-25-13) was who would play the brother and sister combo. It was widely speculated that Aaron Taylor-Johnson was signed on to play Quicksilver, while another rising star, Elizabeth Olsen, would be Scarlet Witch. However, nothing is sure until the studio officially announces it, and that's what we got yesterday. Check out the post below from +Marvel Entertainment that welcomed the actors into the MCU.
