Joss Whedon Talks Scarlet Witch’s Costume in Avengers: Age of Ultron

We’ve known for some time that Joss Whedon was adding the Scarlet Witch to the roster for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, but one thing we’ve wondered is how they make her costume work in a modern action movie. Luckily the people at Nerdist spoke with Whedon and asked him about her costume and whether she would done her signature helmet.

“She might wear a headband or something that might echo it. The guys at Marvel, the conceptual artists, are phenomenal, and they are so good at taking the essence of what works and interpreting it for the actual human body, and when they paint something you can not only tell how it’s gonna work on a person, you can even tell what fabric it’ll be. They are very specific, very talented. So I’m excited to see the designs. Obviously we want to echo the look that people know, but there’s the classic look and the Ultimates look, but you have to do it in a way that will work. But it can’t be too old school… she can’t wear a leotard.

Sounds like this version of Scarlet Witch could take influence from the “Ultimate Comics” version of the character (two versions pictured below), which previously influenced The Avengers greatly. We should also point out that in the Ultimate Comics, Scarlet Witch and Ultron have a very strange….”relationship.”

Featuring favorites from the first “Avengers” film and new Marvel characters never before seen on the big screen, Avengers: Age of Ultron will open in theaters on May 1, 2015.
