Elizabeth Olsen talks her Scarlet Witch costume for Avengers: Age of Ultron

February 12th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

With production already underway in Johannesburg, South Africa for Avengers: Age of Ultron, new addition to the cast star Elizabeth Olsen spoke with Total Film about her Scarlet Witch costume. It will not be the tradition garb that fans are used to:

“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!’”

Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, James Spader as Ultron, Thomas Kretschmann as Baron Strucker, and Paul Bettany as The Vision.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for release on May 1, 2015
