Elizabeth Olsen on Her Scarlet Witch Costume in AGE OF ULTRON


During a recent interview with Total Film, Elizabeth Olsen talked about her role as Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron. When asked if she would wear the sultry costume that her character dons in the comics, she said,

“We’ve done some costume stuff, yeah! My favourite piece is my secrecy cloak that prevents anyone from seeing what I’m wearing. There’s a hood, and a robe – it protects the image!

"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!’”

Whedon has always been great with costumes, so I'm excited to see what he's done with the looks of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, who is being played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
