Marvel Reveals Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch From Avengers: Age of Ultron

19 Mar

So it seems like last night was a pretty big night for comic news on the Marvel side of town as viewers of Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe got to see some images relating to Marvel’s upcoming Phase Two & Three films. But the main bit of visual info I want to talk about is the concept art of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, two key players that will be showing up in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

So here the images are:

If you were to ask me about my opinion on the look of these characters I would say I like them, a lot actually and they are a lot better than I could have imagined. What I like about them is that they are familiar and yet grounded in our reality and that’s what Marvel have been doing with a lot of the more bizarre/complex superhero/villain costumes. And while I can hear many fanboys in the corners of the internet whining about the new looks of these characters, especially Scarlet Witch, for me I think the designers could have done a lot worse.

So let’s talk about the character uniforms starting with Scarlet Witch. While she is definitely a far cry from her original costume, I feel for the MCU she has a modern look that while not necessarily comic book-esque, still has a unique style to it. And then there’s Quicksilver who in all honesty looks pretty cool, he has pretty cool hair, his costume looks sleek and fast and I can see aspects of the comic character in there. And my god that this look like a better improvement over the version from X-Men: Days of Future Past, no doubt in my mind about that.

Obviously there were more concept images uploaded online related to Avengers 2, Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man, but I just wanted to focus on these and give my quick thoughts on them here on my blog. If you wish to see more have a look at the gallery on superherohype yo.

    I liked the look of both of them and yes Quicksilver looks much better than in Days of Future Past.

      You surprise me Lauren, but hey I’m not gonna judge, as long as long as we agree that the Avengers 2 Quicksilver looks better 🙂
