‘Avengers 2′ First Look: Set Photos Reveal Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver
Earlier today, we got our first look at the set of 'The Avengers 2' on location in Aosta, Italy, where Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Jeremy Renner are filming some major action sequences for the highly anticipated 2015 film. Now, how would you like to get up close with Hawkeye and "The Twins" in these revealing new photos from the set?
We've already seen what newcomer 'Avengers 2' characters Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will look like, thanks to recently released concept art from Marvel's 'Assembling a Universe' special on ABC, but the latest photos to leak from the 'Avengers 2' Italy set reveal Olsen and Johnson suited up as the super-powered siblings.
Early details from the set reveal that the trio are filming a sequence in which they're attempting to flee the villainous sentient robot Ultron (voiced by James Spader), but are swarmed by many of his minions, which we also briefly glimpsed through the Quicksilver concept art and set videos. While some Marvelites may seek to critique Johnson's Quicksilver getup, much as they did with Evan Peters' 'X-Men' look, the new duo are having no problem getting into character as they dodge explosions and Olsen's Scarlet Witch wields some magic of her own.
'The Avengers 2,' officially titled 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron,' will also see the returning Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), as well as Paul Bettany voicing Vision and Thomas Kretschmann playing villain Baron Von Strucker. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015, but you can be sure to see plenty more from where these photos came from in the months ahead.
