Elizabeth Olsen & Aaron Taylor-Johnson Discuss Their Characters In AVENGERS: AOU

Elizabeth Olsen & Aaron Taylor-Johnson Discuss Their Characters In AVENGERS: AOU

In the following video interview with Total Film, Olsen and Johnson reveal their favorite character traits of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. Johnson also comments on how the duo will have a different dynamic than they did playing husband and wife in Godzilla. Well, I certainly hope so!

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" will bring the Marvel Universe's biggest heroes together again to face one of their biggest villains, with "Marvel's The Avengers" director Joss Whedon returning to write and direct the sequel. "Marvel's The Avengers" was released in 2012 and went on to earn $1.5 billion worldwide, making it the third-largest grossing movie of all time.

The sequel arrives in theaters May 1, 2015 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Colbie Smulders, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, James Spader and Thomas Kretschmann.

MCU news! We're saved!
MrCBM56 - 5/10/2014, 6:45 AM
Surprisingly, the amount if incest jokes have been kept to a minimum.
Abary - 5/10/2014, 6:46 AM
I really love these casting choices. I just stare at them and I see Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Evan Peters is a decent choice to, and it has come to the point where I don't mind the costume very much, but I really like Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 6:47 AM
Than maybe we should start them up and be heroes!
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 6:48 AM
I just hope we get a better look for these two if they stay Avengers.
Kurne - 5/10/2014, 6:52 AM
Lol thought Olsen was gonna stop

"Oh yeah and um I like Quicksilver because he's like quick and stuff"
LEEE777 - 5/10/2014, 6:52 AM
Must've got on REALLY well on the set of GODZILLA :PP

MightyZeus - 5/10/2014, 6:56 AM
I'm really looking forward to the twins in AOU. I actually love the casting choices which is something i love about Marvel Studios.
DrVenkman - 5/10/2014, 6:57 AM
Funny that in her biggest movie, Elizabeth Olsen is still only known for being a sister
Googs - 5/10/2014, 6:58 AM
@LEE777, pretty sure Aaron Taylor is married to a 47 yr old director.
Battabing - 5/10/2014, 6:59 AM
Uuuh, are there any other characters in this movie?

This is like the 100th post of these two telling us the same thing over and over.

A: "I love Whedon. I love my character."

B: "Whedon is so smart. I love my character."

C: "I'm afraid to say anything."

D: "Marvel snipers are everywhere."

Wash, rinse, repeat.
Highflyer - 5/10/2014, 7:03 AM
I always find it funny how marvel wants their actors to shut up.
MrCBM56 - 5/10/2014, 7:07 AM
While I do believe the "Marvel Snipers" has been taken out of context, that Don Cheadle video was really funny.
GliderMan - 5/10/2014, 7:08 AM
Duck Dynasty cameo or GTFO
McNyagano - 5/10/2014, 7:09 AM
I'm so ready for this film. It's a year away though:/
MrBlackJack - 5/10/2014, 7:09 AM
The whole "Marvel snipers" thing kinda seems like a run-on now. It was hilarious in the Cheadle video, but not since then. I think it's time to retire that bit.
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 7:11 AM
We should get our first trailer before the year is over. That's a good thng right?
AstonishingArachnid - 5/10/2014, 7:14 AM
@MrBlackJack The thing is it's not a joke. I mean the sniper part yeah its a joke but Marvel Studios do actually make their actors keep a lid on things. They are very secretive and hate it when secrets are spilled.
Pedrito - 5/10/2014, 7:16 AM
It's because these two are doing their media/publicity run for Godzilla.
The rest of the cast must be filming behind close doors right now.
It's been a while since any leaked footage.
ThrotTheUnclean - 5/10/2014, 7:17 AM
Why does Elizibeth Olsen look hotter her than she has in any of the footage or pictures I have seen for Avengers:AOU?
MrBlackJack - 5/10/2014, 7:18 AM
It's just about impossible for me to find an avatar I like.
MrBlackJack - 5/10/2014, 7:19 AM
@AstonishingArachnid I know, that's the way it is with everyone/thing.
Floke - 5/10/2014, 7:26 AM
@ThroatTheUncle: Yeah, she looks so hot it took a while before I even noticed what the heck she was wearing..
Hulksta - 5/10/2014, 7:28 AM
I just want to see Elizabeth Olsens tits again. That raised Oldboy for me by far.
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 7:29 AM
I'd die.

Don't hate me...
But I think I prefer DOFP Quicksilver over Avengers Quicksilver.
IDK, Avengers Quicksilver hasn't impressed me yet.
MrBlackJack - 5/10/2014, 7:38 AM
Damn, that's a shit ton of characters in AOU...and I can dig it.
sKeemAn - 5/10/2014, 7:39 AM
Yeah same recycled answers.
MrBlackJack - 5/10/2014, 7:39 AM
From what we've seen, I prefer DOFP Quicksilver too. DOFP Quicksilver seems like he's going to be one of the best parts of the film.
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 7:42 AM
I'll reserve judgement until we see Avengers: Age of Ultron Quicksilver in action. As far as looks go it's no contest for me. That being said, neither look as good as their comic book counterpart.
Scarilian - 5/10/2014, 7:43 AM
"DOFP Quicksilver seems like he's going to be one of the best parts of the film"

Considering all the reviews are saying that the Quicksilver aspect is the best part - its beginning to make me wonder if its a terrible film and that just happens to be the only scene that doesn't suck...
jmartinez986 - 5/10/2014, 7:43 AM

has black panther been confirmed for AOU?
marvel72 - 5/10/2014, 7:51 AM
x-men days of future past quicksilver looks terrible,yeah the action scenes may look okay but that costume is f*ckin shit.

quicksilver looked pretty decent at the end of captain america the winter soldier.

@ AlexanderLykins

captain america porn parody has the most comic book accurate quicksilver costume.
MrBlackJack - 5/10/2014, 7:52 AM
@Scarilian I find that scenario unlikely but whatever.
CinemaHero - 5/10/2014, 7:54 AM

I respect your opinion dude, (and DoFP Quicksilver's powers look cool) but we really haven't had a chance to see Avengers Quicksilver in action yet besides a short 10 second clip.
Just give him a chance man!
...Just give him a chance...
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 7:57 AM
Holy crap you're right!
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 7:59 AM
Comic book porn may be my new thing. Comic accurate costumes and porn, can't go wrong!
Scarilian - 5/10/2014, 8:08 AM
"has black panther been confirmed for AOU?"

Not yet, though Wakanda is confirmed so chances are high for a Black Panther cameo as I believe he was scheduled for a film in either Phase 3 or Phase 4.
CoulsonLives - 5/10/2014, 8:08 AM
I like the fact when DOFP Quicksilver is in super speed mode...
He gives this guy an atomic wedgie. That's gold.
