[UPDATE: Is That Ultron?] Get Your First Look at Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch From the Set of ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’!
Just a week ago, we saw the concept art for the newest additions to The Avengers, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, in Marvel’s Assembling a Universe documentary. Between then and now, we got a live-action glimpse of Scarlet Witch, but that may not have been enough to quell the curiosity of some. Hopefully, these will help tide you over.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron is currently being filmed in Italy, and some bystanders were able to grab these awesome shots from the set, a few of which feature “The Twins”.
First up is a pic featuring Quicksilver, which is great, considering we haven’t even seen Aaron Taylor-Johnson in costume until now.
It’s sorta blurry, and we still don’t get to see much, but it’s clear to see that the costume looks infinitely better than X-Men: Days of Future Past‘s Quicksilver.
Next, we have a surprisingly clear clip of an action sequence, in which Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch look to be evacuating a large group of civilians. It’s probably our best live-action look at Elizabeth Olsen in the role yet, and definitely opens up the door to speculation on just what the heck is going on in Age of Ultron (is The Avenger’s nemesis just going on a global destruction spree?).
So, what do you think of the costumes, having now seen Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson actually in them? You can definitely get a good look at both Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch in the above clip, but let’s hope we get official images of both new heroes (Vision and Ultron too, for that matter) released soon.
UPDATE: Here’s a close up shot of a stunt guy in a chromed vacuum formed outfit, which can be non other than Ultron; the films titular villain. My first thought was “aren’t you a little short to be a stormtrooper?”. Obviously this is not the full costume. Ultron will be completely CG. This stand in, is just that, a stand in. A point of reference for blocking and camera set-us. Still, the helmet, chest and back pieces are a good indication of what we can expect.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to premiere on May 1st, 2015, starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader.
