As the time of release comes near for both X-Men: Days of Future Past and Avengers 2: Ultron, more concept work and other details about the movie unfolds, or leaks.
Quicksilver in X-Men – Left. Quicksilver in Avengers – Right
Here we will be taking a look at the characters featured in both movies, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Let the versus begin!
Avengers Vs. X-Men
Many arguments now about the characters start with, “which do they belong to?” Well even though their father is Magneto, and are classified as mutants, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch have had more play and show time in the Avengers comic books. Even though their heritage is more mutant based, they play equally well into both comics. Tie.
Joss Whedon Vs. Bryan Singer
Well, I don’t know anyone who will actually argue against this. Joss Whedon has done not only impressive work for comic book movies, but created a box office legend with Avengers. He even wrote comics such as Buffy and Astonishing X-Men. Ouch. Bryan Singer has been critically bashed as well as X-Fans claiming he does not justify the characters and story. Win. Joss Whedon.
Actors Vs. Actors
This one is more opinionated. But Bryan Singer’s casting of X-Men seem to follow a pattern. Younger, more clean cut, modern looking heroes is his thing. Most of the casting looks more like pretty faces for the screen than actual characters. I am not a fan of the Quicksilver for Days of Future past, but Scarlet Witch looks okay in both.
As for story and character concept, it seems Joss Whedon and his Avengers will have it. Would you agree?
