There’s going to be quite a few new characters in the upcoming Avengers sequel. Chief amongst them, speedster Quicksilver and his reality warping sister The Scarlet Witch. As heroes, their personalities and powers help define them in that movie, but more importantly, so do their costumes.
And Olsen had something to say about the garb that she’d be donning for the sequel.
There’s a lot of love for the character, for various, skintight reasons such as this:
But that ain’t Olsen. Speaking to Total Film, Olsen discussed her Scarlet Witch costume:
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…Well, 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!’
Don’t expect to see that costume leaked anytime soon, as Olsen revealed that she wore a cloak between shoots to disguise her costume. There’s a ton of variety that can be done with the Scarlet Witch costume, and it shouldn’t be too hard to see that idea translated onto the big screen. Filming in Joburg wraps up today, with the cast and crew jetting off next to London to film some more scenes.
Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives on May 1, 2015.
