First Look At Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver In Avengers Age of Ultron

Well, I don't know about you, but I've been a bit concerned about how the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver were going to look in the new Avengers Age of Ultron. As you can remember, I wasn't all that excited by the casting of Elizabeth Olsen for one of the most popular female Avengers in comics.

On the set photos were just leaked and taken by Getty Images just mere minutes ago showing a first look at Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlett Witch and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver. Here's a few pics to check out and see how the famous brother/sister mutant duo will look on screen.


Not exactly the type of costume I was thinking of, but that shouldn't be a surprise since Olsen has come out and said a month ago in an interview with Total Film, "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.”

However, is that even a costume? It looks like just any ole teenager from the suburbs who is dabbling with a quasi-gothic look and wearing a red jacket. I'm calling ubber lame already on this, but that's not even close to Aaron Taylor-Johson's duds as the Quicksilver.

I am really hoping that this is just their civilian clothing and they suit up later in the film with different costumes, because the looks aren't convincing me...at all! First thought that popped in my head when I saw these pics is Zoolander!

But, then again, maybe Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen will capture the essence of the characters and knock it out of the ball park with stellar performances. After all, the Falcon's costume in Captain America The Winter Soldier is quite different than the one portrayed in the comics, but Anthony Mackie's Falcon costume does look cool. I can't say the same for the costumes presented in this first look.

  1. Jeez...I didn't know that the singer from Evanescence was going to join the Avengers. And what's with the lame Quicksilver...looks like a Hanes underwear commercial...please tell me this won't be the finished product. (they must be doing digital imaging, as his sneakers don't even match his outfit)
    And didn't Quicksilver have SILVER Hair? I sure hope Marvel hasn't dropped the ball on this one. It's bad enough Guardians of the Galaxy looks like a spoof on Super Heroes...we NEED at least one serious flick.

    1. I'm truly hoping this isn't their actual look they suit up for, but the look for Quicksilver in X-Men Days of Futures Past is absolutely appalling. Quicksilver's look in Avengers is just lame, the look they gave the character in Days of Future Past should be a felony.

  2. He does look like Zoolander!

    You're in for a surprise at the end of Cpt. America: The Winter Soldier. There's a teaser for Avengers 2 and I was impressed/excited by Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver. Their appearance is much darker and mysterious than these pictures suggest.

    The X-Men version is just baaaad!

    1. Ok, cool, I'm even more excited to see the new Captain America movie. I hope seeing the teaser will get me more excited in seeing them on screen than these pics.
