"My character is incredible and absolutely out of her mind," said Elizabeth Olsen of her Avengers: Age of Ultron role as Wanda Maximoff aka the Scarlet Witch, during a Cover Media interview. "[She's] incredibly passionate and thinks she’s in control more than she actually is. She’s stubborn and an epic woman who has not been created by a human yet. So it’s really fun to be a part of that and try and honour fans." When asked if she had to workout and wear an "unforgiving" outfit for Joss Whedon's 2015 sequel, Olsen responded: "I always like working out. I guess I grew up being an athlete. I am not obsessive with anything really, but I am a witch, so I get to use energy fields. But that’s it. (laughs)" In a seperate interview with Moviefone, Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson commented that they're not quite used to the fast pace that comes with production on Avengers: Age of Ultron ("It's like, 'Wait, we shot the whole scene?' Because they put four cameras on us at once and it's quick, quick, quick... It's like, 'I thought I maybe had a few other ways of doing that.' And they're like, 'Nope, done,'" said Johnson) . However, Olsen admits it's been quite fun shooting the Marvel sequel. "I'm laughing all the time," she said. "The crazy thing is that it's like, 'I'm throwing ***** with my hands, that's cuckoo!' But it's also like, 'We're saving lives. And it's very serious.' There's always that reminder that it's very serious." Further during the interview, the Godzilla stars were asked would they be in full costume by the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, like in most superhero movies. "Well, we're not part of the team, so it's not the same thing..." teased Elizabeth Olsen. Both actors kept mum when asked if they would eventually become Avengers, but we can guess the answer to that.

Wow! Those are awesome! The live action pic reminds me of something youd see in the comics. Hawkeye, SW and QS together in the middle of destruction.

Also have you heard James Marsters as Spike? You lie if you say that Americans can't do a good English accent.
Ha, so true. A few years after Buffy last aired, and I found out that Marsters was actually American, not only was I shocked, I was also a bit disappointed.

What's funnier is that when marsters used his natural American accent people would complain it sounded fake.

That's like Alexis Denisof who also sounds fake when he uses his natural American accent.

She may have not made it into the Days of Futures Past movie, but Scarlet Witch has made it into the game:

Elizabeth Olsen, the actress who will play Wanda in Avengers: Age of Ultron, revealed that the sequel will be much darker compared to the first one.

"I'm a huge fan of the first and hopefully it can provide the same excitement, but add a little bit more darkness. It is a little harder than the first one," says Olsen, as reported by The Belfast Telegraph. Olsen further revealed that she is having lots of fun on the set.

"It's so much fun. I'm like smiling every day, going to bed. It's such a great time," added the actress.

Really it's all those Buffy actors, Giles is American IRL too, right?
I really thought all 3 of them were British
Joss is thorough with his accents, apparently

and to whomever said Brits do good American accents, I also have to call bollocks on that one as well, ask a southerner what they think of Rick's accent on Walking Dead. I hear dodgy American all the time on tv.

The only two accents we have in America that you really need to be a passable actor is the east coast NY/Jersey one and a southern one. Two extremes that Hollywood love.

it's true, but it's also how I imagine other countries feel when we don't take dialect into account.
There's like at least a dozen different Southern accents, then midwestern, upper midwestern(almost canadian), southern and northern New Englander, Californian, and I could go on.
So when I see a middle stater portrayed by a Brit with a New Yawwkk accent, it's definitely pretty grating, and hilarious

but anyways, eastern european?? screw it, nobody will care if it's a little off
and I'm sure Olsen and ATJ will pull it off fine

That actor that Played Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) actually is british.

As a New Yorker it can be grating and hilarious to hear most so called Noo Yaaawk accents in media. NY is definitely not NJ and NYC isn't the same as Upstate NY or even Long Island. Within the city not only does each borough have it's own accent but neighborhood accents differ. And a big difference among all is usually education and and yes class. This is true of most neighborhoods, states, areas or countries. Then there are those people who gasp move between states, countries and classes who have melded accents.

Even the generic Newscaster accent can tilt more toward East or West coast than the old Midwest standard.

It's usual and understanable for people to be more attuned to the differences in accents and dialects of their own area and far less perceptive of the differences for those no their own.

I think actors tend to have an ear and tongue for accents or they don't. Some are naturals and others never get it completely right no matter how hard they practice. And it's not dependent on how good they are at actually acting which in the end is more important than being a good mimic.

totally
I remember seeing some panel interview with Hiddleston after TDW came out, and Zack Levy was the host, when someone brought up the accents, he mentioned that Levy didn't need any coaching to sound completely accurate.
Then I went back and watched an episode of Chuck where he puts on the cockney and was like, "damn, he really is good at accents"

As for Ms. Olsen, I've become obsessed (not literally) with her since I found out about her. She's very beautiful, to say the least. Outside of Godzilla I haven't seen her in much but I suspect she'll do good here.

Who can we get to voice-coach Olsen and ATJ to do a proper Eastern European accent? Can Sean Connery possibly be available? The gold standard for accents has been and remains Connery's Russian general in The Hunt For Red October.

Loved the Scarlet Witch since I was a kid. Can't wait for this movie! I also dig Quicksilver but not sure how Whedon can top the DOFP Quicksilver. He was awesome. Expecting greatness!

The more I think about this particular casting choice the more I get excited for the simple fact that it'll give us all more of a chance to see what Lizzie is capable of. I'd like for her to make a lasting impression that sticks out considerably.
