Joss Whedon Talks About Scarlet Witch’s Costume for Avengers 2

Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver’s appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron is pretty much a done deal, so Joss Whedon can talk about the topic freely. What’s been churning in the director’s mind right now, though, is the issue of Scarlet Witch’s costume. Anyone familiar with the character’s iconic comic book costume, as well as The Avengers movie’s approach to costumes, will understand why Whedon is concerned: it’s not practical for a live action film, and might look silly within the context.

Fortunately for fans, Whedon is confident that the conceptual artists for Marvel are up to the task, and can provide a great balance between looking good and practical, while still retaining core concepts that are associated with the character:

“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!”
