Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch hint at incest in Avengers: Age of Ultron?

Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are sibling mutants who care a lot about each other. In the Ultimates version, their caring goes to a whole other level, with incest being heavily implied. Now it looks like we may have some form of that in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron movie from director Joss Whedon.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Elizabeth Olsen mentions how connected Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are.

“In the comics, every time you see an image of them, they’re always holding each other’s hand and looking over each other’s shoulder,” Olsen says. “They’re always so close, it’s almost uncomfortable. Aaron and I have been playing a little bit with those kinds of images just for ourselves.”

Does that mean we’ll be seeing something subtle on screen? Since Age of Ultron is going to be a big blockbuster movie, I doubt Disney would want something taboo like that…or do they?


Another piece of information is that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be on Team Ultron. Ultron is the antagonist who wants to help humanity…by wiping them out. Director Joss Whedon fills us in on how Ultron and the siblings will pose a threat to the Avengers:

“They’re on Team Ultron, which makes things really hard for the Avengers because all of sudden they’re dealing with powers that they’re not used to. With the [first] Avengers, everybody pretty much had the power of being able to punch somebody, and now we have a woman who can get inside your head and move objects, and a boy that can move faster than anything, and a robot [Ultron] who can self-replicate and is out of his mind. So all of sudden, it’s a darker, weirder, tougher world that they’re living in.”

Do you think we’ll see something more with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron? What do you think of the Avengers going up against Ultron, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch?
