(SPOILER) Why Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and The Vision will fight the bad fight. More details about this trio of new Marvel Cinematic Universe characters.

Isn't the headline technically a spoiler?

Never mind. I see EW used that as the headline too.

I mean, probably? EW and other media sites regularly post spoiler-ish article titles/images to get more views. It's pretty much impossible to keep anything a secret on the internet these days (heck, we already know the entire opening scene of The Avengers: Age of Ultron now thanks to leaks).
Re: Headline - I think if the studio is happy with it as a bit of PR puff then it's not really a spoiler. Descriptions of scenes from the movie obviously would be.
Oh, ducky as all heck. Instead of the very interesting hex power, Scarlet Witch is just another standard psychic menace from central casting ala DarkPhoenix/Saturn Queen/Michael Rennie in _The Power_/Gerry Thompson in _More Than Human_ walking, talking cliché.

Plus Quicksilver as a garden variety platinum blond guy instead of prematurely white-haired. Glad I never started these now.
