Earlier today images and video from the Avengers: Age of Ultron shoot in Italy were released. We didn’t publish them because of the poor quality. Now though a collection of higher quality photos of the same scene have been released that give you a clearer look at Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, James Spader (or his stunt double) in what we presume is Ultron, plus a bonus shot of director Joss Whedon. This photo leak could pressure Marvel to release official images soon, especially in the case of Ultron, who likely has some CG in his character design.
What do you think of the photos? I am shocked at how awful Quicksilver looks. Hopefully this is just an on-set suit and they will add something to it in post. Right now it looks like Pietro’s super speed has been replaced with the power to make his foes die of laughter while looking at him. I can forgive the “Ultron” costume because that is most definitely only a small part of the costume that will feature heavy CG characteristics.
Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, and Mark Ruffalo also star. Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1, 2015.
