First Peek at Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver (and Ultron?!) on 'Avengers 2' Set
Look, it's the new recruits of Earth's Mightiest Heroes!
Yes, we are pumped for the return of the superhero ensemble in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," but it's the addition of the brother-sister duo, Scarlet Witch (above) and Quicksilver (below), that's inspiring even more geek-outs.
Sibling rivalry — and sibling bickering — is right up writer-director Joss Whedon's alley, and all the better that it will be embodied by such fan-approved thespians as Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

Elizabeth Olsen is dressed decidedly more conservatively than her four-color alter ego, Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch. In these new images her pose is ripped straight from the comics, down on one knee and working one of the Witch's many hexes with her hands — probably right in a bad guy's face.

Plus that's Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye next to Scarlet Witch as they do battle with the forces of the villainous sentient robot Ultron (James Spader). As you can see, Ultron's nefarious plans include leaving a perfectly good television set on the ground and spreading newspaper pages and other debris all to and fro.
