I was already excited for “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” as it’s easily my second most anticipated movie of 2015 (behind “Star Wars: Episode VII” naturally) but with these first on set shots I’m even more psyched to see it as we get a look at new recruits Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).
Quicksilver is sporting a fairly comic book accurate costume right down to the white hair(!) while Scarlett Witch has a bit more of a departure from her comic look. It works, but her stockings could probably be red to have the scarlet effect outweigh the black.
And the one outfit I was crossing my fingers would get a sequel makeover was Hawkeye, but it looks like Jeremy Renner will still be wearing his same utility suit from “Marvel’s The Avengers,” the only disappointing costume choice in the entire lineup.
Now hopefully Joss Whedon returns Iron Man to one of his more classic red and yellow armors instead of the mustard version featured in “Iron Man 3.” Whedon didn’t even care for the triangle centerpiece created in “Iron Man 2” and switched back to a circular center for “Avengers” so don’t be too surprised. I’m hoping we get some shots of Thor and Captain America soon as well as I’m very interested in their costumes for the sequel.
