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...
