Earlier this year, we got our first glimpse at Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch while Joss Whedon and company were in Italy shooting ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ A few photos from the set unveiled the actress’ Marvel Cinematic Universe makeover, as well as the first photos of Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver and the big baddie Ultron (or at least part of him). Now, a video from that location has surfaced showing off what the sorceress has in store for her big screen debut.
Italian site Cinefilos has shared a video from the set of the upcoming sequel to ‘The Avengers’ that shows over fifteen minutes of behind the scenes footage. For the most part, there’s a lot of set preparation from the 5:00-minute mark onward, but you can see some interesting scenes involving Wanda Maximoff in the beginning. Additionally, you can see a number of Eastern European extras at about 13:30 running from guys in motion-capture suits. Presumably, they’re fleeing from Ultron and his robot minions, but we’ll find out next year when the Phase Two finale hits theaters. Until then, you can check out the full video below:
What do you think about the first footage of Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch in action? Are you holding judgment until you see a completed scene with all the special effects in place? Let us know in the comments.
