Joss Whedon discusses Scarlet Witch costume

She won't be wearing a leotard…

With Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver set to join the fun for Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Joss Whedon has been talking about how the new additions will be adapted into his movie universe, starting with the pressing issue of the former's costume.

Traditionally, Scarlet Witch sported a fetching leotard and cape combo, although Whedon suggests she'll have to undergo a bit of a makeover to fit in with the rest of his team…

"She might wear a headband or something that might echo [the original costume]," says Whedon. "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."

"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… you have to do it in a way that will work. It can’t be too old school… she can’t wear a leotard!"

Spoilsport. Avengers: Age Of Ultron will open in the UK on 1 May 2015.

      I was thinking they would use her newly designed Marvel NOW costume as inspiration, it's more like a long red coat (think Neo from Matrix but in red)

      Well, it all depends on who they put IN the costume, doesn't it? But of course she can't wear the original.

      Thanks Marvelboy, I was struggling to imagine what a long red coat would look like.
