With all the Marvel news coming out over the last few weeks, Joss Whedon has left us wanting even more when he revealed that new characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch mightn’t exactly be on the Avengers side, in the eagerly awaited Avengers: Age of Ultron, along with The Vision.
Whedon told Entertainment Weekly, “They’re on Team Ultron, which makes things really hard for the Avengers because all of sudden they’re dealing with powers that they’re not used to.”
He also explained, “With the [first] Avengers, everybody pretty much had the power of being able to punch somebody. And now we have a woman who can get inside your head and move objects, and a boy that can move faster than anything, and a robot [Ultron] who can self-replicate and is out of his mind. So all of sudden, it’s a darker, weirder, tougher world that they’re living in.”
Aaron Taylor-Johnston got to talk about his character Quicksilver and his temper, “There’s a lot of clashing. He’s quick tempered. He gets agitated. He’s impatient. But he’s super protective.” He also spoke about Quicksilver’s relationship with his sister, “They’re very yin-and-yang in that twin sense. In his power he’s physical and she’s psychological. My character is very much on the frontline, but he can be quite emotional. You see this beautiful tenderness between them.”
Speaking of Quicksliver’s twin sister Scarlet Witch, actress Elizabeth Olsen revealed more about her character,”The reason she’s so special is because she has such a vast amount of knowledge that she’s unable to learn how to control it.” Adding about the relationship between Scarlet and her brother, “In the comics, every time you see an image of them, they’re always holding each other’s hand and looking over each other’s shoulder. They’re always so close, it’s almost uncomfortable. Aaron and I have been playing a little bit with those kinds of images just for ourselves.”
The third character that Whedon spoke about in his interview was The Vision, another new character for Age of Ultron and will be portrayed by Paul Bettany who is also the voice of Tony Stark’s J.A.R.V.I.S., but is this a coincidence or is there something going on?? Whedon said, “It’s not coincidence…. And I’m not going to tell you any more about The Vision.”
I guess we’ll just have to wait for May 1 2015 to come around to find out!
