Since the closing scene of last years The Avengers, we all wondered who else would step forward to join Earth's mightiest heroes to stop an even greater threat! I know I did. Especially when you consider who that threat is! No need to spoil it for those who haven't seen the film yet so, I won't mention it here. However, it looks like the almighty Joss Whedon is indeed going to expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his upcoming The Avengers 2 by adding two new heroes to the bunch.At the premiere of Iron Man 3, he was coy on the subject as he spoke to Yahoo! Movies saying only, "I've got my favorite characters from the comic books - a brother-sister act - they're in the movie."That's all we get. Those familiar with Whedon's MO will know that he takes the element of surprise very seriously so as not to ruin any treats for fans. Of course we'd all like to know just which brother/sister team he is referring to, but his secrecy is great for stimulating discussion among the fanboys and girls!Many keeping up with this bit of news speculate that the team is none other than the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, children of the X-Men's arch-nemesis, Magneto as many comic fans know. They are the most-well known and so the most obvious choices, but what are your thoughts on this exciting news?
