Joss Whedon Can't Wait To "Knock" Quicksilver And Scarlet Witch Against THE AVENGERS

Joss Whedon recently appeared on the Tavis Smiley show and spoke about Quicksilver & the Scarlet Witch, reinterpreting Marvel heroes for a new generation and more.

In addition to discussing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch (sounds like maybe they'll be fighting The Avengers at least initially), Joss describes the feeling of directing characters he grew up reading and the responsibility he shoulders to reinterpret these characters for children just coming of age and discovering these superheroes for the first time.

Marvel talk runs through the 10:00 - 19:30 min mark

"We are introducing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch who are mainstays of The Avengers universe, they're foes, they've been allies and they're very interesting to me because I grew up reading The Avengers. They have powers that are visually exciting, different from the characters we've seen before so I'm excited to knock them against The Avengers and see what shakes loose."
