The newly released Marvel photos featured a first look at the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and her twin brother Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), in the highly anticipated Avengers sequel, as well as popular characters the Hulk and Black Widow. Fans were also treated to images of a tiny-looking Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) from Guardians of the Galaxy.
Meet the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver
Scarlet Witch is able to manipulate energy and specializes in harnessing magic and chaos, according to Entertainment Weekly, while her brother Quicksilver is able to move at supersonic speeds. You can clearly see this in the amazing, brand new photos!
The images, created by artist Jack Kirby and writer Stan Lee are all vivid and stunning, but there’s no doubt that the shot of Quicksilver in motion is the best one of the bunch!
Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters May 1, 2015, while Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Michael Pena and Patrick Wilson, premieres on July 17, 2015.
