made it clear that he wants to introduce Quicksilver and his twin sister Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron. The drawback is that the movie can't mention that they're mutants or the children of 's Magneto, because 20th Century Fox owns the rights to those aspects of the characters.

No surprise then, that although showing up in two movies within about eighteen months of one another, Marvel Studios President seems pretty confident that fans won't be confusing the X-Men: Days Of Future Past version of Quicksilver () with the one appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron () anytime soon. According to ComicBookMovie, Feige just revealed that:

There are only a handful of characters that occupy that middle ground... Iron Man is not going to show up over there and Magneto is not going to show up over here. But there are a few gray points even after many years of negotiations … and that only happens with a character like Quicksilver, who has been a part of the X-Men, the son of Magneto in those comics, but also a primary Avenger. The characters are going to be very different. Other than their powers, general audiences might not even know - unless they read your article - that the two are related.

I'm cool with both Fox and Marvel using Quicksilver, but I'm anxious to see how both turn out. On the one hand, Whedon's in charge of Taylor-Johnson's version, but on the other hand, Fox's Quicksilver will be more true to the source material...

What do you guys think? Which Quicksilver are you most looking forward to seeing? Let me know in the comment section below!
