Bryan Singer Reveals Scarlet Witch's Role In X-MEN: DOFP; Says She's Been Cut From The Movie

That little girl we've all assumed is the Scarlet Witch? Well, it's not her says X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer! Instead, a scene in which an older Wanda Maximoff is referenced has been cut from the movie. There are also plans for Quicksilver in X-Men: Apocalypse...

We won't be hearing anything from Bryan Singer during the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past press tour due to some damning sexual abuse allegations, but when Empire Magazine caught up with the director not too long ago, he shed some light on the role of Scarlet Witch in the movie. For a start, those of us who assumed that it was the little girl we saw talk for the first time in this TV spot were wrong. "Is that the Scarlet Witch? No, that's his little sister," Singer revealed. "I even had a line which I cut, where Quicksilver's mother says to the little girl, 'Go up and bug your sister,' and the little girl says, 'She bugs me!' You never see the older sister, but it was to imply that there is an older sister for comic bool fans. I ended up cutting it." Thanks Bryan. Anyway, many were under the impression that the little girl would be brought back as a teen in X-Men: Apocalypse, and while plans for Scarlet Witch in the X-Men franchise are still unknown, it does sound as if Evan Peters will return. "Even though our Quicksilver is not a main character like in The Avengers, it's a character there's a lot of thought and concern about and it's a character I'd like to explore further in the sequel." For now, it seems like we'll just have to rely on Avengers: Age of Ultron when it comes to seeing "The Twins" fighting side-by-side...

I wonder who they had to play her?
DrDoom - 4/27/2014, 2:07 PM
I remember the last time Singer said that a female character had been 'cut' from DOFP . . . .
DEVLIN712 - 4/27/2014, 2:08 PM
Alexandra Daddario would make a pretty good SW... then again, she'd make a pretty good anything...
Venture - 4/27/2014, 2:11 PM
So that would make the little girl Polaris.
AsgardianHobo - 4/27/2014, 2:12 PM
One might wonder if the character would have been cut if it was a young boy? hmmmmm

DrunkenNukem - 4/27/2014, 2:12 PM
oh boy....
LehnsienJaw - 4/27/2014, 2:12 PM

Guess I'm ok with this. Enough new characters in this movie anyway.
dannybosa - 4/27/2014, 2:12 PM
I thought Bryan was going to have nothing to do with this movie or something like that.

"Even though our Quicksilver is not a main character like in The Avengers, it's a character there's a lot of thought and concern about and it's a character I'd like to explore further in the sequel."

Then what he is doing in this movie? o_O Yeah next time just give him a good costume that doesn't try too hard to emphasize the fact that he's called 'Quicksilver'.Whatever...

i heard QS has only a small amount of screentime such as them recruiting him and then breaking out magneto is the screentime he has,is that true? while i may not dig his look, he seems to be a collector plus it is the 70s so him having a silver jacket makes sense and im digging his personality
TheRationalNerd - 4/27/2014, 2:14 PM
He's probably being introduced in this film so that you won't have to take out that much time to drag/set up his character in apocalypse.
soforizo - 4/27/2014, 2:15 PM
So all the bitchin in the other DOFP thread was for nothing. *sigh* LOL!
MrCBM56 - 4/27/2014, 2:16 PM
You can moan all you want about his OUTFIT (Not Costume), but he looked wicked in action. Someone post a gif of it.
McNyagano - 4/27/2014, 2:17 PM
The real Wanda and Pietro..


WAYNE - 4/27/2014, 2:17 PM
I don't even think they'll be related to magneto. Saw a clip of his recruitment and he was mentioned as a guy wolverine knows from the future.

Personally I hate what Singer has done to the xmen. They're the characters that got me into comics and the singer films are a total bastardization of that and the comics cannon
soforizo - 4/27/2014, 2:17 PM
Hopefully they can get her powers right, since I'm not expecting (nor care for) costumes from this franchise.
fanDomX - 4/27/2014, 2:18 PM
I wonder if Joss would have NOT publicly Stated Very early on, while starting the script, That he planed on using the twins if Singer/Fox would have even bothered with them?
Prime - 4/27/2014, 2:18 PM
Are they even Magnetos kids?
Melkaticox - 4/27/2014, 2:19 PM
@DEVLIN712 Didn't you read the article? There was never an actress/scarlet witch, it was just IMPLIED there was one.
In other words, they got none.
XK1D - 4/27/2014, 2:19 PM
I knew it! damn people and they're conclusions...
MrCBM56 - 4/27/2014, 2:19 PM
Whedons QS & SW still differ from the comics greatly too. And that's only from set photos.
Reasonnnn - 4/27/2014, 2:19 PM
Singer, I don't think you'll even be involved in the sequel if your charges hold up + That documentary on hollywood's dark secret filled with sexual abuse
Scorpion8125 - 4/27/2014, 2:20 PM

Once again, creepy hack Singer can't figure out how to use a female properly in a movie.

MrCBM56 - 4/27/2014, 2:20 PM
@Prime Yes. It's been all but confirmed.
MercSoul - 4/27/2014, 2:21 PM
"...comic bool fans..."

COMIC BOOL


fix it bro :)

BritishMonkey - 4/27/2014, 2:21 PM
So Quicksilver really is just in it for the sake of being in it in competition with Age of Ultron.
McNyagano - 4/27/2014, 2:23 PM
I wouldn't mind seeing Singer's Pietro in the next spy kids film. He'd fit right in;)
pointman - 4/27/2014, 2:23 PM
This whole movie sounds like it is in danger. It may be the next heavens gate.
MrCBM56 - 4/27/2014, 2:23 PM
@MrBlackJack He did that because of the assumptions that the little girl was Wanda.
ATrueHero1987 - 4/27/2014, 2:23 PM
Oh really?
sikwon - 4/27/2014, 2:24 PM
@wayne..I'm 100% in agreement with you. They have raped the xmen. Sony and Marvel have has well but it's done so much better, especially marvel, that it doesn't nearly take as much away from the characters. It's an understanding that Fox lax.
AlexanderLykins - 4/27/2014, 2:24 PM
@BritishMonkey
Competition? Hardly.
Melkaticox - 4/27/2014, 2:24 PM


^ Scarlet Witch getting cut.
TheRationalNerd - 4/27/2014, 2:25 PM
@ezio619

Singer stated in the Empire Magazine release earlier this year or late last year that his character would only be in one beat within the film of course the scene that you mentioned.
ezio619 - 4/27/2014, 2:25 PM
also apparently, QS was a replacement character in that originally his part in the storyline was suppose to be a young Juggernaut
BIGBMH - 4/27/2014, 2:25 PM
My biggest concern with DoFP is that it scenes like there are a bunch of characters thrown in just to have them there.
ezio619 - 4/27/2014, 2:26 PM
MRBLACKJACK-in terms of look,i take they both are equally ok, but lets see in terms of personality...

blacknerd-oh ok thanks
McNyagano - 4/27/2014, 2:26 PM
"I find it ironic Singer has been cutting out a lot of female characters."

I shouldn't be laughing but that's funny. xD
Azazel1 - 4/27/2014, 2:27 PM
@Sikwon-Rape like the rape of the Mandarin in Ironman 3????
