‘Avengers Age of Ultron’ costume updates, Elizabeth Olsen on ‘darkness’ of film

With every Marvel film there are always minor changes, new costumes and tweaks to keep things interesting and offer up new action figure designs.

“Stark wears the Mark 43, a suit with less gold on it than IRON MAN 3, but still more than in THE AVENGERS. The chest core reactor will be back to the circular shape favored by director Joss Whedon. The Mark 44 is the Hulkbuster and will be his other suit in the film.”

Black Widow will be getting some minor changes as well: “Black Widow’s costume update will feature not only the previously reported batons, but her suit is said to be more “TRON-style” in nature with blue lights and electricity around the suit. Her enemies will now receive electric shocks or a “widow’s sting” when she hits them, giving her more of a “superhero” edge amongst her super-powered counterparts.”

The last bit summarized by Jo Blo is Paul Bettany as the Vision: “The Vision will be 100 percent Paul Bettany with his face and body all in metallic form, very shiny with gold, red, and green (as well as the yellow cape).”

“Ultron will be more than just a helmet, with his full face being articulated, including the mouth. All movements from James Spader’s face are used to bring more personality to the villain. The suit mock-up is reminiscent of the weapon that Agent Coulson used to shoot Loki in THE AVENGERS, which was made from the parts of the defeated Destroyer in THOR. The suit is said to have a “red firelight underneath, giving him a kind of ‘Balrog’ effect from LOTR.”

Ultron will be using an army of drones to battle Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Director Joss Whedon has been vocal about the superhero genre, speaking directly to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight.

“Now, I watched ‘The Dark Knight’ and I thought of that as riffing on the genre. That was a superhero movie as ‘The Godfather.’ And I was like, ‘But I just still want to see a superhero movie!’ We had just gotten the technology to make it awesome, and I wasn’t ready to be post-modern about it yet.”

“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 Elizabeth Olsen of the new film, as reported by The Belfast Telegraph.

The Godzilla star 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.”

Little Laura’s Film Blog noted that BJ Britt, Agent Triplett from Agennts of SHIELD, was filming a scene inside the Avenger’s mansion. More on Triplett filming, Cap’s motorcycle on set and much more HERE
