Are Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver going to be Inhumans in the AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON?

Are Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver going to be Inhumans in the AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON?

Nothing official here, this is just my own little theory, but hear me out! It all has to do with Marvel's recently released teaser images for the new Inhumans comics series. Click on for my thoughts..

How do we know they're Inhumans? Well, there are a couple of puzzle pieces to figuring this out, but it is not a stretch of the imagination, in fact, I'd bet on it.

Marvel has released it's teaser images for the new Inhuman comics series:









And apparently the comic storyline is about mad people being exposed to whatever it is that creates Inhumans (I'm not an Inhuman expert). So it looks like Inhumans are the new mutants in the Marvel comic world.

So why use Inhumans instead of Mutants? Why have readers familiarize themselves with Inhumans instead of Mutants when judging by these posters, the premise looks pretty similar?

1) We know that Inhumans is a movie franchise that Marvel wants to work on.

2) So far in the MCU, anyone with powers is a god (Thor) or is connected to the Super Solider Serum (Cap, Hulk, Red Skull). Marvel knows they can't keep milking that cow.

3) They are NOT allowed to reference mutants in the MCU

So how can they explain where these people with powers keep coming from? Including SW and QS?

The answer is that SW and QS, and many future Marvel movies characters, will be Inhuman. This will also disconnect SW & QS from Magneto as their father which must be done. On top of that, this will lead into an Inhumans movie and set up an Inhumans universe quite nicely, as well as many other franchises (The Wasp in Ant-Man, etc.)

Thanks for reading! Feel free to talk shit about me in the usual place.

@nibs It's called "Terrigan Mists". Interesting theory, but it's pure speculation at this point, not "All but confirmed". Wouldn't be the worst way to get around the rights issue, though.
MrCBM56 - 9/6/2013, 12:00 PM
I think that's the most logical way to go, but hmmm, we'll see.
Dumegg - 9/6/2013, 12:01 PM
Ive been saying that for a while now. I think it makes
The most sense. They dont have to be mutants.
Inhumans works just as well.

conjecture [kuhn-jek-cher] noun
1.
the formation or expression of an opinion or theory without sufficient evidence for proof.
2.
an opinion or theory so formed or expressed; guess; speculation.
3.
Obsolete . the interpretation of signs or omens.
I would rather that Marvel Studios leaves QS & SW origin vague.
Tymminator - 9/6/2013, 12:08 PM
I think it will be made vague.
superotherside - 9/6/2013, 12:08 PM
Since they most have been in Inhuman and Avengers stories, I could easily see this happening.

Although I hope they just don't bring up their father and keep Magneto as their father. Who knows they could have a Inhuman mother or something right?
I think it would be good to have a bit of mystery surrounding the twins.
superotherside - 9/6/2013, 12:11 PM
Who says Magda Eisenhardt might have been Inhuman? So who knows... perhaps they took more after their Mother than their Father.

Find a way to have them join the team but have mystery. That way if they ever have the ability to use mutants then they can explain it... They should just make a deal to have the universes together. Just because they are in the same universe doesn't mean they have to fight together every time.
Dumegg - 9/6/2013, 1:14 PM
You cant put two characters in a movie and leave
Them a mystery. They need to be explained. Marvel
Isnt allowed to use the word mutant so them being
Inhumans is the best way.
NoAssemblyReqd - 9/6/2013, 1:29 PM
I bet the origin will be vague in AVENGERS 2, and then Marvel will introduce the Inhumans somewhere down the line, and the GA will just put two and two together.
Inhuman - 9/6/2013, 1:30 PM
Anybody who knows my posts, I've been saying Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be Inhumans since Whedon teased us with his "brother-sister act" comment. Quicksilver has an Inhuman wife and child, he used the Terrigen Mist to repower himself, and its a cool new origin story. Im telling you Whedon will go this route
RorMachine - 9/6/2013, 1:31 PM
It's possible...definitely possible.
Inhuman - 9/6/2013, 1:31 PM
Im one of the originators who created this speculation. @MarvelKnight knows this lol
NoAssemblyReqd - 9/6/2013, 1:36 PM
Marvel also de-powered 99% of all mutants not too long ago, so that the only ones left seem to be "our gang" of known X-Men and various others they've found around the world.

Was this Marvel's sneaky way of reducing the scope of a comic franchise whose movie rights they don't own, in favor of promoting another, similar group of powered heroes they *can* exploit?
thejackwagon94 - 9/6/2013, 1:40 PM
Nice theory, even if it doesn't come true. Top marks for thinking cap usage. Better than whatever bs they're going to concoct to explain away their powers.
dougieisrollingthejays - 9/6/2013, 1:42 PM
I don't know it just doesn't seem right to make them inhumans. Not because It can't work, but then what happens if they ever get the X-men back? Oh yeah sorry you guys aren't magnetos kids... Idk I wish they would just strike a deal of some kind to use them as mutants but just say these are the only ones we can find. Then let the X-men be in their universe and the avengers in their own.
CharlesLord - 9/6/2013, 1:44 PM
Seems like the logical way to go. Although I still say just hint at their origins being "complicated" as a nod to the fans with wats going on wit the rights
DukeAcureds - 9/6/2013, 1:45 PM
OR they could just introduce them via Agents of Shield and only reference mutants, Magneto and maybe even the X-Men on that show, which they are allowed to do.
Would that be so hard?
wookiefit76 - 9/6/2013, 1:46 PM
I'm gonna have to agree and here's a bunch to help your theory.

Quicksilver's wife and kid (Crystal and Luna) are Inhumans also.



Also, in Giant Sized Avengers #1 the Scarlet Witch talks with the Whizzer, who mentions that in his travels, he wound up at the High Evolutionary's Wundergore mountain, where he and his wife Miss America had more kids. Miss America was a member of the Invaders with Captain America and The Human Torch.



Human Torch was in Capt America at thye Stark Expo



The Scarlet Witch concludes that those two children must have been herself and Quicksilver. The logical and literary reasons for making this revelations seem remarkably weak, based on the fact that the Whizzer and Quicksilver have the same powers and that Miss Marvel and the Scarlet Witch sort of look alike.

The Inhuman Phaeder, father of Maelstrom handed college student Herbert Edgar Wyndham papers containing a blueprint for breaking the genetic code.

Oops! Forgot a pick:

IrfonW - 9/6/2013, 1:48 PM
Here's the thing. they don't need to give them introduction at all. What they are will most likelly not be important, but who they are
wookiefit76 - 9/6/2013, 1:49 PM
Also, Adam Warlock who might show up in GotG found the High Evolutionary hoping to get help against Ultron.

ElBicho - 9/6/2013, 1:53 PM
Shit. It makes sense. Valid points.
Bodwulf - 9/6/2013, 1:54 PM
No.
BezierCurve - 9/6/2013, 1:56 PM
THIS.
Monkeyfuntimepartykids - 9/6/2013, 2:01 PM
Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch both will be Eternals in Avengers 2. Why go so far and make their origins so complicated as Inhumans while you already have the Eternals established. Thanos is an Eternal, so we already have a race of mutants for them to use in Avengers 2.
PsyGuy - 9/6/2013, 2:04 PM
@nibs

Woah good points! I hope you're right and they don't make up some BS variation of mutants.

Although I wish they'd just say nothing because WE know who QS and SW are, the general audience might want some kind of explanation.
Wallymelon - 9/6/2013, 2:06 PM
great idea dude
dougieisrollingthejays - 9/6/2013, 2:10 PM
There's an Idea. Since they seem to be hero hunting in the Agents of Shield show. why not hunt down the two, explain the origins in 2 minutes. ask them to join SHIELD. Then in teh avengers two just say agents Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. Then after that join the Avengers with little explination needed! WAM!!!!
wookiefit76 - 9/6/2013, 2:20 PM
Forgot to add this point: Herbert Edgar Wyndham becomes the High Evolutionary. So it makes sense that in the maybe the High Evolutionary breaks the genetic code to create advance humans, The Red Skull or the Russians use this to create super soldiers and that's how we get Wanda and Quicksilver.

Maybe the connect comes from Both IronMan3 where the Russian charater's(sorry I forgot his name), grandfather worked on the Winter Soldier Project. The Winter Soldier will be in Capt America 2, and thaqt leads into Avengers 3.

Maybe the Avengers will have a battle on 2 fronts. A terrorist group and Ultron. Ultron is built to help fight terrorist group. Then Wanda and Quicksilver join the Avengers to help defeat Ultron earning a place on the team.

[frick]in love this article
Pheezmatic - 9/6/2013, 2:23 PM
hope ur right dude...[frick] fox
avengingson - 9/6/2013, 2:48 PM
Yeah, I think this is a great idea. Let's hope it happens!
marvel72 - 9/6/2013, 2:58 PM
if this leads to an inhumans movie,i'm all for it.
GliderMan - 9/6/2013, 3:04 PM
I love every single X-Men movie.

Boom.
crashrendar - 9/6/2013, 3:10 PM
neat.so there will be two different quicksilvers in the movies? ya. why not? wasn't there controversy with the inhumans about how quicksilver wasn't one of them and shouldn't be allowed to marry crystal?
teinen - 9/6/2013, 3:13 PM
Something, something Man of Steel... Something, something Iron Man 3...

Sorry, wrong thread. They're all starting to blend in!
