Avengers: Age of Ultron is currently filming in Aosta, Italy which has to be tough because one bowl of pasta and it’s going to show in your spandex, but luckily, as these photos show, some of the costumes have pasta-concealing features. Elizabeth Olson said she wasn’t going to go around in a scarlet swimsuit as The Scarlet Witch and she is sure not wearing a swimsuit. Sensible shoes and everything!
These photos are supposedly leaks, although Disney/Marvel usually has things locked down tighter than Modok’s helmet. Jeremy Renner is back as Hawkeye but this is the first look at Olson’s Scarlet Witch and the Disney-verse Quicksilver with Aaron Taylor-Johnson. ATJ gets points for having white hair, and a lightning bolt as opposed to the Evan Peters version from X-Men: Days of Future Past. When that was revealed, I asked “would a spandex suit with a lightning bolt on it look any better?” and I guess the answer is yes. Taylor-Johnson has previous superheroic experience as Kick-Ass, and I have to say, he seems very comfortable in spandex.
