New Age of Ultron Footage – Quicksilver and Scarlet WitchMarch 27, 2015
A new mini featurette called “Super Siblings” was released by Marvel today, showing us all new footage of the Maximoff twins Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in the upcoming film Avengers: Age of Ultron. The short video features interviews from Joss Whedon and the cast, who gives us some more info on the twins’ importance to the film, their sibling relationship and, of course, their awesome powers. Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Pietro Maximoff) and Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff) also gives us some details about their character’s personalities. Sadly though, still no clip of Scarlet Witch’s Eastern European accent – I guess we’ll have to wait until May for that one.
Personally, I’m ridiculously excited to see these two in Age of Ultron. It’s always great when we get new characters straight from the comics, and seeing their powers come to life on screen is always a huge draw for me. While we did get one version of Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past, it’s safe to say this Pietro will be much different (including the fact that his name isn’t just “Peter” this time). And although we don’t get the Magneto connection in this film, we will finally get to see – or rather hear – that they are of Eastern European descent like their original comic book counterparts, something that has yet to be done in any film or television portrayal of these characters. I also can’t wait to see their dynamic with the existing team, since it seems they’ll be on both sides of the conflict throughout the film.
