Bryan Singer casts Quicksilver in Days of Future Past

In confusing as f!@k comic book news first Bryan Singer cast Evan Peters in his 2014 film X-Men Days of Future Past, ok that's one Joss Whedon has confirmed to have added Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch into the draft script for Avengers 2:

Before he was an #Avenger, he was just a REALLY fast kid. Thrilled to say#EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver.

Since it's usually Scarlet Witch AND Quicksilver as a pair we'll be most likely seeing her in Days of future past as well but here are the confusing points. Who can or can not use the characters for the films? Marvel and Fox are both using the duo and this could play out in one of several ways.

  • Fox owns X-men characters if Marvel gets the ok to use them they wouldnt be able to mention their mutants and that they are the children of Magneto. Knowing Marvel they can turn this negative into a gag of sorts always mentioning they are mutants before getting cut off and talking about the daddy issues between the siblings.
  • Different versions of the characters would be used and or different actors  creating more work for the origins of these great characters.
Hopefully this can go the right way and the characters will be the experiment and the first of many characters to be included in Marvel movies from different movies and characters.
