Scarlet Witch will be getting a redesign for The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Jul. 25, 2013by: Alex Maidy

It should not come as a surprise that Joss Whedon plans to change things up in THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. We already know that Hank Pym may not be the creator of Ultron in the movie and now comes word that we should expect something different from the costume design for Scarlet Witch.

Speaking with Nerdist, Whedon put the kibosh on Wanda Maximoff's traditional headgear:

No. She might wear a headband or something that might echo it. 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, and when they paint something you can not only tell how its gonna work on a person, you can even tell what fabric itll be. They are very specific, very talented. So Im excited to see the designs. Obviously we want to echo the look that people know, but theres the classic look and the Ultimates look, but you have to do it in a way that will work. But it cant be too old school she cant wear a leotard.

Redesigns can go many ways. Some disliked the modernized Captain America costume and almost everyone despised the Hawkeye outfit Jeremy Renner wore in the first AVENGERS movie. Thor, Iron Man, and Hulk all wear their standard gear but updated for the silver screen. I have a feeling that the decision to change Scarlet Witch's outfit has less to do with modernizing her character but rather separating any potential references or reminders to Magneto's helmet.

I have high hopes for THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON since all of the pesky origin of the team is out of the way and now Whedon can just play. I am fine with changing Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. I just demand that they keep Ultron looking like Ultron.

THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON opens on May 1, 2015.

I was never really sure what the head dress/half helmet thing was anyway. Is it a head band? I kinda see it as one of those things that wouldn't translate well in motion like Wolverine's cowl.

I kind of wish they would keep the costume and just embrace th comic book. I didn't mind Hawkeye's outfit, but I would have loved to have seen some purple in the outfit and that mask.

I know I'm in the minority, but I enjoyed Captain America's suit in the Avengers.

No change will be as drastic as Pym not creating Ultron so go nuts, guys. Have her wear leg warmers & Crocs for all I care...

So far, the designs in the Marvel movie universe have been pretty cool. There's been nothing egregiously jarring or different and the conceptual artists have, on the whole, done nice work translating those looks to the screen. Still want some red in Falcon's outfit though.

That's too bad...

I've been sending Avi Arad pictures of myself in my homemade Scarlet Witch costume but still no word other than those cease and desist letters. Fingers crossed I get the part!

That's industry speak for "she won't be sexy". Her costume will be sexy in the same way Elektra's was, uh, sexy.

I get the feeling that the outfit with be less sexual more combat style. While I admit I like seeing the jugs out in full display it might cause some issues with some of the scenes though it might be interesting to see Starks reaction to some of her more revealing attire she has worn in the past.

As long as they keep the sex appeal and a bit of scarlet, I'm good.

i hope Tony Stark's automated Mark 47 in IM 3 becomes the basis for Ultron. if not, then there would have been no reason for Tony to have built that, and don the suit again for the Avengers 2. i would think he'd just use remote/automated suits and keep himself out of harm's way.

Yea, I agree. Big deal about redesigns for the costume. I can honestly get where filmmakers are coming from with adapting comic characters onto the screen. As much as people want to see the classic costumes from the comics, sometimes the outfits can look silly when fully realized. Take X-Men for instance, as much as I would love to see the comic version of the costumes, I get it where Singer/Vaughn are coming from with creating something that's a little more realistic than the comics.

As long as they make Scarlet Witch and Quiksilver look cool, I'm all for it. Frankly the Earth 616 costume I've always thought looks stupid for both SW and QS - so any redesigns for the movie would be welcomed.

seems like a dumb change. her headpeice doesnt stand out as looking out of place or anything. if they need a reason for her to wear it just say its a device that helps focus her powers

Just as long as it's not as horrid as Captain's or Hawkeye's costumes, I won't have a problem.
