Now that production has officially launched on the monolithically-anticipated The Avengers: Age of Ultron, the sequel to the insanely-successful The Avengers, in Johannesburg, we can soon expect a flurry of production pics to begin leaking. And while we’ve already seen what characters like the Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Iron Man look like via other films, we still have yet to see the look for characters like Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Ultron.
And because this is the internet, and because we cannot wait until official images are released, let’s obsess over Elizabeth Olsen’s comments about Scarlet Witch’s look in the film, because, again, internet:
“I don’t think Joss ever would have hired me, honestly, if he wanted me to wear those outfits…I am not a professional athlete and nor am I a model. Wearing those costumes wouldn’t be fun for anyone who wasn’t those things. He already had a different idea. It respects and involves the comic book character, but it’s different. More rooted. It’s for someone today… If someone walked around wearing what she wore in the comics, people would stop and say, ‘What the hell… she thinks she’s a superhero!’”
So we can likely expect that Olsen will not be sporting the ridiculous bathing suit/ helmet/ gloves combo that we know from the comics.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for a May 1, 2015 release date.
