Northstar and Aurora? Awesome.

I'm going to guess Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver.

Colossus and Magik!

Yeah but no it's probably Wanda and Pietro.

Methinks you would be correct.  Both the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver have been on the team over the history of the comics, and they are siblings. 

The interesting note from Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige is that given the backstory of the characters, both Marvel Studios AND Fox would have rights to use the characters in certain contexts.  Marvel Studios can use them in an Avengers project as members of the team.  But Fox also retains rights to the mutant siblings in a possible X-Men project given the characters' relation to their father, Magneto.  Case in point:  they're not terribly visible, but both the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are shown on the Wanted poster that's prominently featured in the cover art for Uncanny X-Men #141, the classic "Days of Future Past" storyline that's supposed to be the basis for the next X-Men film project.

JediJman:
This will be interesting to see.  Both of their power sets are pretty tricky to show live.  Quicksilver's superspeed has been done before, but not very well IMO.  Making him race while everyone else is moving at normal speed could look silly.  And Wanda's hex powers of probability are hard enough to explain to people, let alone show on the big screen.  I'd be concerned that the average Joe who doesnt know her wont really get her powers.
