Quicksilver in "Avengers 2" and "Days Of Future Past"?

In recent weeks it was confirmed that Quicksilver would be featuring in "Avengers 2", an now it has been confirmed the character will feature in "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" played by Evan Peters who is more than likely known by most for his roles in "America Horror Story".

"Though it seemed like the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past was all filled up, director Bryan Singer just revealed one last addition. Through Twitter, Singer announced that “American Horror Story” regular and Kick-Ass co-star Evan Peters is playing Quicksilver, a character with superhuman speed who happens to be the son of Magneto and the twin brother of Scarlet Witch." via FirstShowing

A lot of people questioned how he was going to work in two different films that are being made by two different studios. Luckily for them the great guys over at Superhero Hype asked Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige that exact question, read what he had to say;

"There’s a specific arrangement with those two characters that would allow us to use them with Avengers, but not discuss or reference their mutant or Magneto-related lineage. [Fox] can use them as mutants and as Magneto’s relatives, but cannot have anything to do with The Avengers.” So while Fox and Marvel can use the characters, they’re limited as to what parts of the comic book mythology they can use. This has the potential to create some confusion for fans, but there will likely be plenty of explanation online if necessary."

So he will exist within the two universes, and have relationships with The X-Men and The Avengers but each universe will not mention the relationship he has with the other group of superheros, right got it? Have I? It's upsetting that the studios can't come to some sort of agreement for these type of events like Spider-Man and possible Avengers connection. The plots for both studios would be exponentially better if they mixed up their characters more. Like if Quicksilvers origins were linked back to him being the son of Magneto and having The Avengers come in an help fight Magneto an his army of whatever. Just could be so much better if the studios didn't own certain characters.
