First things first: that cute little girl you see above sitting on Quicksilver's lap in a scene from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is not Scarlet Witch. When that image was first revealed, fans immediately began speculating that the little girl was a version of Wanda Maximoff, but director Bryan Singer has confirmed that's not her, while adding that Scarlet Witch almost was in the movie.

Paul Bettany is the latest Marvel star to fear the wrath of the studio, because when Jimmy Kimmel asked him about his role in 'The Avengers 2,' the star visibly looked around and shared his fears before opening up (just a bit) about his work as The Vision.

As its title implies, 'Captain America 2' is largely inspired by Ed Brubaker and artist Steve Epting's celebrated, Eisner-award winning comic book storyline "The Winter Soldier." Although ultimately very different from what transpires in the big screen version, the broad strokes remain the same: Steve Rogers finds himself hunting, and being hunted by, a ruthless assassin who may or may not be his supposedly dead best friend, Bucky Barnes.
The movie uses Brubaker's Captain America run to fuel the first half of the film and provide an antagonist who can serve as an emotionally hard-hitting threat to the star-spangled Avenger. However, while it's the most obvious, it's not the only Marvel comic run heavily quoted in the film. There's another acclaimed comic series that not only informs the biggest twists of 'Captain America 2,' but suggests what crazy new direction the Marvel cinematic universe is heading toward on both the big and small screens.

After watching the 'Captain America 2' post-credits scenes, one of which introduced Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as "the twins" (aka Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver), one viewer exclaimed, "Am I supposed to know who they are?" Dedicated Marvel fans across the globe are no doubt rolling their eyes over what, to them, seems obvious, but it still happened.
It's easy to forget how even though Marvel's comic book universe has gone mainstream, thanks to the 'Avengers' movies, there's still a percentage of casual viewers who are only just grasping the surface of the MCU (for newbs, that stands for "Marvel Cinematic Universe") and are blissfully unaware of its implications. While we've provided primers for the uninitiated for such figures as Ultron and the Guardians of the Galaxy, we now turn our attention to the two new superheroes joining 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron.'

There are two reasons why superheroes tend to change their costumes every time a sequel rolls around: (A) it gives the filmmakers a chance to put their own unique stamp on them, and (B) it means they can release a new action figure. Thanks to video from the set of 'The Avengers 2,' we've already seen what Hawkeye's new outfit looks like and received our first look at the costumes for the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, but today brings a look at Captain America's new getup.
