First Image Of Ultron Leaked From Set Of Avengers Sequel?
New, less crappy images have been released including an even better look at what surely must be Ultron himself (above). But, as exciting as this new Ultron image is, can we also just take a moment to recognize how freakin good Elizabeth Olsen looks as Scarlet Witch?
As you may know, Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron is currently filming out in Italy at the moment, and Italian news site Aostasera.ithave just released a bevvy of images and videos from the set. Most of the footage and imagery shows a scene that clearly features Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch and Aaron Taylor Johnson as her brother Quicksilver, but tucked away in all of that may be our first proper look at the titular bad guy, Ultron.
The image above clearly shows some sort of metallic being having a bit of a rough time, but who or what is it? Aostasera certainly seem to think it is Ultron and who can blame them. Given what we know about the movie and its lead antagonist, it's hard to draw any other conclusion. Kevin Feige had previously revealed that James Spader will be carrying out motion capture work as well as voicing Ultron, but that's not to say there wouldn't be some physical 'on-set' work needed for the role, especially for work in which a stunt actor is needed.
Even if this isn't Ultron that we're looking at, this latest dump of coverage is a blow your load moment for Marvel fans everywhere. The videos aren't the most revealing, but this one gives us our first moving glimpse of Olsen in her Scarlet Witch get-up and this blurry job gives us a little look at some of the physical effects work being carried out on the set.
So take this while you can, because the chances are that this is going to be the best look you get at Age of Ultron until Comic Con comes thundering into San Diego this July.
