While on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Collider was able to speak with Elizabeth Olsen & Aaron Taylor-Johnson about coming into the Marvel world, their relationship in the film, their accents, and more.
Question: Could you talk about your Eastern European accent?
ELIZABETH OLSEN: Can I talk about it? It’s something we got to create because it’s a make believe place. So it’s something that Aaron [Taylor-Johnson] and I with the dialect coach got to create together.
AARON TAYLOR-JOHNSON: I can, yeah. We’re doing one. Well, they decided to re-ADR that in the end. I don’t know yet.
How are we introduced to your character?
OLSEN: I think you’ve already been introduced. The most beginning you will see is what’s in the end of Cap 2. There’s definitely a connection that is very evident, yeah.
Is that pretty much the costume you have for the whole movie?
OLSEN: Well, no. For the film, that world is very specific so it’s almost like hospitalish, and the way that we designed costume and character is based off of these two kids being on their own and using whatever they can to their best ability. Like if they see a street vendor, they just grab something off the street vendor, so it hints to Eastern Europe but it’s also kind of this gypsy, vagabond feel as well.
In the comics, Quicksilver has a very distinctive costume that he wears. Do you eventually transition into something like that towards the end of the movie? Does he have something that he wears that can hold up to that kind of speed? Because he’s moving fast, more fabric could disintegrate.
TAYLOR-JOHNSON: Because it’s so early on, I’m just more of a civilian really. Like I said, they’re more like Eastern European like travelers and you know, picking up clothes as they go along, you know. And I can’t really say too much about it, but yeah I think the way that we’ve designed picking out the costumes is with that kind of thought in mind. You know, like I think some of the things I wear is a lot more kind of sporty, you know long-sleeve, a cycle top, sort of compression T-shirts and things like that, that get that kind of physique and sense and idea of it.
For those worried about the costumes the twins have been wearing in everything we’ve seen so far, these interviews should help to ease your worries. While Olsen does state that we won’t see her in the usual Scarlet Witch get-up, her answer (as well as Taylor-Johnson’s answer), seem to pretty much indicate that their outfits will continue to change throughout the film.
