Fans likely know by now that Elizabeth Olsen will play Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon's sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Some of the more popular topics of discussion for such superhero movies are the costumes for the individual characters. Olsen recently dropped some hints about her costume for the movie, and it sounds slightly different than what one might expect.
Scarlet Witch's costumes in the comics tend to be quite revealing. Just look at this one and this one. But Olsen's words paint a different picture, one that provides room for some new designs for The Avengers 2. The following comes from a recent interview with Total Film magazine (via Superhero Movie News):
"We've done some costume stuff, yeah! My favorite piece is my secrecy cloak that prevents anyone from seeing what I'm wearing. There's a hood, and a robe - it protects the image! I don't think Joss ever would have hired me, honestly, if he wanted me to wear those outfits; I am not a professional athlete and nor am I a model. Wearing those costumes wouldn't be fun for anyone who wasn't those things. He already had a different idea. It respects and involves the comic-book character but it's different, more rooted. It's for someone today. Well, if someone walked around wearing what she wore in the comics, people would stop and say, 'What the hell... she thinks she's a superhero!'"
