'Avengers 2's' Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson discuss their roles

According to Comic Book Movie on Saturday, in an film clip Elizabeth Olsen talks about her role as Scarlet Witch and Aaron Taylor-Johnson discusses his character Quicksilver in Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age of Ultron". Olsen mentioned that her character has a bit of a relationship with all things and objects around her as if she has some kind of 360 degree awareness of sorts.

Taylor-Johnson couldn't say much about what he does at this point, but Olsen did mention that Quicksilver, given his lightening fast abilities, has a funny sense of humor. So it stands to reason that Quicksilver is not only physically fast but "quick-witted" as well. Prior to starting on the "Godzilla" project, where she co-stars along with Bryan Cranston and again, Taylor-Johnson, she was approached by Joss Whedon about taking her own in the "Avengers 2" project. Her logic entailed even most fan's perceptions of "Why add any more super heroes to this thing?"

Whedon apparently had his own slant as to why bring on additional characters with super human abilities. He didn't really consider Scarlet Witch or Quicksilver as additions to the Avengers team, but more so to harass the superhero ensemble.

"No, there are these two characters that I want to bring in to like f**k with the Avengers and not be just an add on.' He told me a little bit about the writing and I said that the only reason I would want to do it is if it is a character that can still stand out".

Oslen explains how the two actors who had worked on two film projects, "Godzilla" and "Avengers: Age of Ultron" that differ as far as the amount of time their characters spend together. In the Whedon film, they are brother and sister pretty much attached at the hip, in "Godzilla", they play husband and wife that are pretty much separated from each other in a time of crisis.

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" opens in theaters May 1, 2015.
