AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Set Visit #5: Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson Chat the Maximoff Twins


By Amirose Eisenbach March 30, 2015


We sent our very own Jon Schnepp to London to visit the set of the highly anticipated sequel, "Avengers: Age of Ultron". You've checked out the other tidbits he gathered from talking to the returning superhero team and now you can see what his experience was like speaking with the addition of the Maximoff twins this round, played by Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson:

"So I'm sent to London England, a few months ago, to cover the on set filming at Shepperton Studios of "Avengers: Age of Ultron", and to do a series of interviews, alongside a dozen other extra sweaty journerdalists who are all geebed up on being inches away from Iron Man.

To be here, in person, listening to questions asked with voices cracking in mid sentence, is a dream come true for this giant sweaty nerd!!! The giddy fanboy energy is everywhere, in the nervous ticks and the relentless brow sweat, in the prop shop holding Hawkeye's new arrows, inside the Quinjet as we all get pictures taken of us that we won't get for eight more months, as we watch Captain America casually drive past us in his new full Avengers branded uniform in a golfcart.

Over the course of three amazing days, we were on set, watching Joss Whedon direct like the genius madman that he is, limping from set to set, under extreme pressure, trying to keep his only human body functioning as fast as his metal whip smart brain. We got to see some amazing scenes filmed on sets filled with oceans of green-screen, with practical bits and pieces of reality set up to lay the framework for the massive digital artists playground yet to be created.

Here is my second to last interview, this time with Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor Johnson, as they talk about their roles as Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch. Below are the transcripts, and definitely watch next week as I lay down the big news in our last video Avengers set visit interview, covering this and much much more."

 

Interview with Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Wanda Maximoff aka The Scarlet Witch

Q:   Can you talk about your Eastern European accent?

EO:   Can I talk about it?  Um, that's something we're, we're, that like a thing we know that we're from Eastern Europe.  And, okay, so yeah, it’s something that we got to create.  It's a make believe place, so its something that Aaron and I, with the dialect coach kind of create together. 

 

Q:   What's the name of the fake country?

EO:   That I can't talk about, but it's, but I get to, you've got to make it up, so, yeah.

 

Q:   How are we introduced to your character?

EO:   I think you've already been introduced.  Um, I think as the most beginning you will see is, um, is what's in the end of Cap 2, and it's almost likely...

 

Q:   Is that continued?

EO:   A little bit, yeah.  You, there is definitely a, ah, connection, that is very evident.  Yeah. 

 

Q:   In some of the originally drafts of Godzilla your character and Aaron's character were brother and sister.  When that was switched had you guys already talked about doing this together? Or was that very late in the game?

EO:   When we were talking about the brother, I think, I was, we were in a part of the brother-sister conversation for Godzilla, and he just told us that they weren't sure if they wanted them to brother and sister, but they're pretty sure they want them to be married and they're pretty sure they're gonna give them a kid.  [LAUGHING,] That was the impression we got, ah, and after we basically started it, and we didn't know about this until after we finished filming, ah, Godzilla, so it was kind of funny.

 

Q:   Working on this film, you had just come off of something else. Was that easier?

EO:   Totally, I mean, if you look at the comics, um, the two of them are always, they're always like so, so close to each other, that the proximity, their com--, their comfortability around each other is, um, so specific, and to the rest of the group.  And so it's nice to know Aaron and it's also nice to have a friend when you're joining such a big project like this with, um, potentially intimidating people and, um, and so it was, it's been really nice to have Aaron. And it, and it is nice to feel like, to feel like we have this, like, with, like they have their movies, well like we had a movie too, it's not just that one, but, you know... [LAUGHING.]  it was that kind of teammate feel.

 

Q:   What was some of your first meetings with the cast members like and did they kind of give you any insight? Who was the first person you and Aaron got to work with?

EO:   Um, the first, the first person, um, that Aaron and I got to work with is Jeremy Renner, because we were shooting in Italy as everyone has seen.  Um, and, ah, and he was, he was so, he was just, I don't know, he's sort of straight about how this is gonna go, and there, you know, is, is one of the first days of, of shooting the cast I think, and it just, you know, he always, it's seriously been the most waiting I've done on a film, so that kind of, um, that keeping an energy up is really difficult. But see, you get on set and like you just have to have like one thing that you hook into to remind yourself, to give you that energy and the drive of your character.  I don't know, just talking with him was--was interesting and fun, and I so enjoy working, I, I mean, everyone that we've met, it's just been, everyone is so nice.  I was waiting for like maybe stuff, sort of diva, anything.  There's none of that at all on this set.  All of the actors are unbelievably fun and giving and kind and it's, it's amazing.

 

Q:   Do you have a favorite Avenger?

EO:   Personally? I'm kind of digging what I get to do, and I'm really excited, well, my, my favorite, just as a fan is Iron Man, those are my favorite films and then, um, and that's how I got into like the Marvel world and becoming a fan myself.  But, um, I, I wouldn't mind continuing to do this for quite some time because I'm having so much fun working on the Scarlet Witch Wanda.  It's, ah, she's so awesome.  I think Joss is excited by her also and, and so the two of us kind of dork out a bit and... it’s pretty fun.

 

Q:   Going off of what we saw in Cap 2, what is the relationship like between Wanda and Baron von Strucker?  Is that something that continues throughout the film?

EO:   Ah, it's, ah, it's something people will be wondering later.  Um, I guess it kind of, what it is, what is there, I mean, looks like, you know, we're almost, I mean, it is what it is.

 

Q:   Do they share ideas?

EO:   I don't know.  I think there's a bit of all of it, you know.  I think it's, it's interesting, I don't know what I can tell, but like it's, ah, it's...

 

Q: In that scene at the end of Cap 2 we see the character manipulating objects and today we learn that your character can get in the minds of people. Can you talk about the power abilities of Wanda?

EO: Yeah, so I am able to go into someone's head and they'd never see.  They're almost like, I can, I can feel and see what they feel and see, so it's not just me manipulating them, but what I love about her is that in so many, um, superhero films, um, emotions are kind of negated a bit, but for her everything that someone else could feel like their weakest moments, she physically goes through that same experience with them, which is pretty cool. Um, yeah, so she can, like if they have the biggest, darkest fear, I get to see that.

 

Q:   Can you also shoot things or control things?

EO:   I, yeah, I can control energy. I can like manipulate energy away, so that's what the red stuff is that we're playing with. 

 

Q:   Can you talk about, this power set is something we haven’t seen in a Marvel movie yet, coming up with the physicality of it, how will you play those things?

EO:   It's been so fun, because you can't be like well, how does this magic witch hero move?  Like there's nothing physically that you can just reference from dance or, you know, martial arts or anything like that.  So we started off with Joss kind of having these ideas based off, you know, just images in the comics of what the hand gestures would look like or the arms look like, and then I work with a dancer, um, Jenny Wade.  She's a choreographer and dancer.

And so the two of us, um, get locked up in a room together and we move and we try and figure out what looks strong, where, you know, the, the energy comes from and, and so, but also in the film, like I'm having a journey of discovering how powerful she can be in her legs.  So, you know, we've got to start somewhere.  We've got to, we've got to figure out what all those different levels are.  Um, sure, it's funny, because everyone's doing like stunt coord--, stunt practices and choreography, and everyone's like yeah, but I mean, she and I are just like doing weird moves and like, sh--, you know, pretending like we're making things shoot out of our hands. And it's [LAUGHING] like, I can't get like injured that way and I feel not as tough as everyone, but it's super fun. 

 

Q:   Sounds playful.

EO:   It is.  It's so playful, and I keep growing up, so we get, ah, you know, it's, it's nice to be able to have some sort of creativity and movement, um, and it's, it's pretty awesome.

 

Q:   Do you have a tremendous amount of power?  How crazy is she?  Is she trying to maintain a level of sanity?

EO:   I, well, that's what I'm, I think that's what's so awesome about that trajectory of where she could go potentially.  They think in, in this film, um, it's, it's just the beginnings of everything.  It's all just starting. 

 

Q:   In the comics she does get really powerful. In this movie are you just learning to use your power?

EO:   No, we, we just, we made the decision that she's already been able, because we, we played with the idea of like how much can she do yet like at the beginning of the film and, um, at first it was like not much, but we've kind of decided to like have her home in to understand some sort of, um, strength to, um, her abilities.  And, but then the do grow, but it, it's, there's definitely a sense of confidence that she knows what she's doing from the start. 

 

Q:   You can get into the Avengers heads. Have you filmed scenes with everyone?  Can you get into all the Avengers heads?

EO:   I can get into anyone, I can do, I, I do that to everyone and, ah, yeah, I can do that to everyone. 

 

Q: To a robot?

EO: I don't think so.  I don't think that includes robots.

 

Q:   Did you film the scenes with the cast already?

EO:   We just filmed in an awesome scene where we're basically all in one room the last few days.  It's been so cool. Aaron and I were kinda like this is amazing.  I can’t believe they can get all these people in one room, and they'll all be in London, um, but, ah, yeah, we did that.  I was more of like a talking scene and it was a lot of fun. 

 

Q:   Do we get to see any interaction or a relationship building between Wanda and Vision?

EO:   Um, I think you, they're both, they're both being introduced in this film, so you just, I think if you're like a big fan and you know what happens, maybe you'll like, you know, maybe that you'll start putting in your own interpretation on the things, but other than that, it's just, everyone's kind of being, you know, created and born.  All these new people and being added in a way. 

 

Q:   Is there humor with your character? Because She seems pretty dark.

EO:   Um, I think there's humor with her brother.  I think there's a lot of humor. Jeremy Renner's character is hilarious for some reason to me, and [LAUGHING,] He’s like a big grump.  Um, and like he's really funny. He's always complaining, um, but, ah, the humor that I have would seem more like being the, because I think, I think Pietro, his energy, we're like yin and yang almost.  And I think that interaction to me is, is funny, but it's not sunny.  I'm not saying like funny start lines, but...

 

Q:   What’s it like being a Joss Whedon female hero?

EO:   It's, well, you feel like you're in good hands and the cool thing is, is that he, um, he hasn't been able to create these characters.  He's been given them from other directors or writers, from their other franchises, and he's been adopting, like taking what has already been created and serving them in Avengers.  And in this, he's able to create Wanda, and, and he is a, he's, he's such a huge fan of her and it's really awesome to get to have that, I think he is enjoying also getting to have the experience where he gets to create it, because he is such a fan of, of creating these strong, amazing women.

And it's nice to have that kind of, you know, it's, there's obviously Black Widow, but it's nice to have another strong presence, um, and, you know, usually I haven't really been around when Scarlet was working, so I kind of feel like the only female most of the time.  And it's--it's nice to have, you know, a stronger presence, um, instead of, you know, a weak one or like an office one or something.

 

Q:    Does she tangle with Widow a little bit?

EO:   A little bit, um, a little bit. We've got to work a little bit together.

 

Q:   What was your reaction when you saw what your costume would be like? Obviously we know what the character looks like in the comics which is interesting…

EO:   Well, the first thing Joss ever said to me before I even got the job, when we were first meeting, he said when you look at the images, look at the comics, know that we are doing, we're not making you look like that.  You will not have to wear a bathing suit or look like a porn star.  [LAUGHING.]  So that made me feel great. 

Um, and then Alex, who is our costume designer, is really clever in being able to take the images and the iconic, um, ideas of these characters and these comics and these, you know, cartoons and adapt them to some sort of modern day world, like how will it, how would it actually exist, but still make it feel like it's not of this world in a way.  So I have been totally loving it, and I, I love all of my costumes and I love, I love all the details. I work so much, so many little pieces that it, they're all so unique and I think it all just adds to your journey as, you know, as these twins together.

 

Q: You’re known for smaller films. Is there really any difference with your process in working on something so big this time?

EO: No, there's a huge difference, um, massive difference and it's really interesting, because you get to learn a different way of working.  You, you know, you have to, in this you get to work, um, but I like having a lot of structure.  I've always enjoyed having tons of structure because then you can be as free as you want within it.  And in this, it's like you have that structure and you have more structure and everything, everything is in Joss' head or Kevin's head, and everyone has figured out how this is gonna go.

It's almost like a cartoon before you get there, so you have to bring this humanity and life and your own personal interpretation of everything.  Um, but it's not like you can decide oh, I'm gonna go walk over and touch that thing across the room.  You can't do that.  Um, there's like 6 cameras set up.  Um, so it's, it's totally a different way of working, and you have to be so specific and you just have to do it right when they give you the opportunity to, because you don't have a lot of opportunities, because they have to keep moving with all the other set ups. Um, and then when you do something smaller, it's like you're getting to exist in a room with the one camera guy and do that kind of a dance. 

 

Q: Joss is known for altering, tweaking dialogue on the day.  Has he done anything drastic with any of your dialogue or any of your stuff? 

EO: No. No, and if there are, and then we have like, you know, script changes where we'll come on the set shooting a scene and he'll be like oh, by the way, I added a scene right before this.  And you're like, what?  And then that scene changes your full opinion of what you're about to shoot, but that's okay.  You know, you can, you can change your mind really quickly.  And so, and so that's the only thing, but not, like maybe intentions have changed so that while we've been shooting, as the script has been changing, but, um, nothing that you ever feel unprepared for.

 

Q:     Do you have any direct relations with Ultron?

EO:    I think our relationship to Ultron will not be shared.  [LAUGHING.]  Yeah.

 

Q:     Does your character also have the ability to see into their nature on whether they are good or bad?

EO:    Well, I think that what I'd like to answer that is that I think we can know so many things about someone but not know maybe what they're capable of is, in terms of being bad or good, and I think everyone has maybe good intentions, but they do bad things.  So I don't, she can't, I don't think anyone differentiate that.

 

Q:    When you were first meeting with Joss and talking about costume ideas, and he was pitching the character to you, did he pitch you like an overall plan saying here are some things on the course of this character's life in these films?

EO:    No, it's more, it was more like here's what we're going to do with this film, and then just while we've been on set, I just like making jokes like wouldn't that be awesome if that happened to you later at a different time?  Ah, that's about it.  It's been really, I have like the story that we wanted to achieve that she almost creates on her own in the comics is just so awesome and so, I'm sure it'd be so fun to play with him.  I would love to, to do more, you know. 

 

 

 

Interview with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays Pietro Maximoff, aka Quicksilver

Q:    Can you talk about your Easter European accent?

ATJ:    I can.  We're doing one.  Uh, whether they decide to re-ADR that in the end, I don't know, you know.

 

Q:    If you wouldn't mind, can you demo it?

ATJ:    I can't.  I don't think I can do that but um, you know, um, you know, has been fun.  Me and Lizzy have been, um, doing dialect coaching, uh, together and trying to get that, uh, the sound, you know, similar to, playing Twins, brother and sister, but just, uh, her being American and me British.  But um, yeah, it's fun, when I spoke to Joss about it a long time ago and he approached me for the role, um, it was one of the things I kind of wanted to -- to keep, you know.

One of them was, uh, I wanted to have white, silver kind of hair to look like the Character and the other one was that if i could kind of embrace the sort of, the roots, where he's from, you know, being Eastern European, it would be great to do some kind of accent to impart that kind of feeling so -- so I'm glad that we're doing it but like I said, you know, they might screen it and go what are they saying?  So uh, you never really know so I'd like to think that they'll keep it there and you know, the Marvel guys, um, they totally understand.  It comes to their Characters, you know, they're -- they're a Studio that really care about their Characters and uh, have real Creative input and uh, you know, and are totally for that.  But you always, at the end of it, you know, you always want what's best so we'll see, we'll see so hopefully it will continue on that route.

 

Q:    How much reading did you do of the comics to see what the character is like? Did you have to see what the Studios would like or...

ATJ:    Yeah, yeah, some of the original stuff, sort of a mixture of things.  Um, obviously the Character sort of jumps in and out of different Universes being like in their sort of, uh, mutant world and all that, which obviously we don't embrace cause of being with Fox and that extent um, as you're all aware, that's no sort of secret, you know.  So um, but yeah, I take bits of, you know, pieces that have been done in History and all sort of Comic Books to kind of get essence and the sense of, um, Pietro as a Character but rather than like Quicksilver just in the sense of Oh Yeah Superhero Powers that he runs faster than the Speed of Sound but you know but what's he really like and um, and uh, and kind of get to the depths of him and um, wonder and that sort of like, uh, Travelers and you know, they have to look out for themselves and uh, it's a -- it's a really close, intimate relationship but then they sort of, uh, um, it can be seen in many ways, you know.

And also that sort of Mother and Father, the kind of figure.  He's very sort of protective of her in a kind of physical way and her more in a psychological way so you know, and we try and embrace that and uh, yeah, there's a lot of stuff that could pick up from and one of the ones I like that's now offered is moreso was -- was the ultimate really because, uh, I think that kind of ties in more with what they've been doing recently with the Avengers, it's more keeping in tone with it.

 

Q:    So your power set is really something we haven’t seen in these movies before. We’ve seen super speed in other films. It really feels still like there’s ground to be broken. Physically how do you prep for that and work with the team to figure that out?

ATJ:    I run a lot.  Uh, and um, yeah, we, um, yeah, we've done it before.  Right now, I think they're gonna play around with, um, maybe getting into kind of Quicksilver time, which would be sort of my point of view and uh, and seeing, uh, and -- and kind of playing around with that.  Um, like I said, that's another thing that it's experimental really.  You know, you try and you know, that's the great thing with these things, with new powers and things like that, that you can really play with that sort of stuff.  Uh, we did a lot of testing with, uh...  The first time we did a running test, I was on like on this, what's essentially like a running machine but it was a huge Lorry sized rig which this, you know, something, the width of this but it was, uh, something that they sped up and it was a great big running machine, and they had me on a -- on a harness on a Green Screen.

And they put it sort of an incline and I ran on that.  But what it did, it didn't really give a sense of anything was really traveling.  Uh, but uh, it, yeah, so when you played it back, it was just like everything actually, um, uh, it -- it looked too clean and neat.  So it didn't really look real and then when we did some stuff on the road and they had, uh, when we shot onto like a 120 frames per second.  And they, um, and they're on a -- on a truck and they're driving on Sprint for a hundred meters and the more kind of crazy and kind of ducking and diving, and when they sped that up, it had a lot more of a really interesting plot to it.

So I mean, we experimented with a little bit, a lot of fun, and uh, yeah, easy turn up.  What am I doing today?  Do I -- I run in and I run out, so you know. [LAUGHTER] So it gets to be quite--

 

Q:    Elizabeth was talking a bit about the humor of the character which kind of, I mean, super speed is something to lends itself to hear. Plus Joss Whedon has an incredible ear for humor. What’s it been like working with that and the humor of the character?

ATJ:    Yeah, I mean, the thing is with, uh, like with the Marvel Universe in general is everything's not taken seriously in a -- in a sense of even when there's points of real Drama but I love that there's a lot of sarcasm and -- and humor to it and people have like the little, you know, like have their moment of humor and um, uh, so uh, yeah, I guess, you know, and it's fun.  I mean, what we didn’t want for me and Lizzie's standpoint is that our accents is to be like the humorous thing and we want to be laughing at the fact that we've got these silly accents you know, wanting to actually make the words and their -- and the feeling of the scene be kind of, have humor but um, yeah, it's, uh, yeah it's good.  Like I said, it's all kind of sort of fed through -- through Joss and bouncing off some of the other Actors and stuff and uh...

 

Q:    Is it mostly repartee with Scarlet Witch or rest of the team?

ATJ:   With the rest of the team. You know, it's always that thing, that kind of great thing where they have, uh, Characters going head to head and bicker with one another and I don't want to say who but it's nice to have like...

 

Q:    Say who.  [LAUGHTER]

ATJ:    But yeah, there's a lot of humor in it and uh, we get on.

 

Q:    With Scarlet Witch she’s getting into their heads. What sort of relationship do you have with the Avengers? Do you hate them or do you resent them? [INAUDIBLE)

ATJ:    It's not an easy answer. I can say that yeah, Mister Tom and I, when I'm sort of, cause I go at such super speed that it's literally, yeah, an elbow or an shoulder would send someone and kind of flying.  It's the force of impact of my powers. And depending on when I'm slowed down, it makes the Character very vulnerable at times but he's at super speed, no one really can kind of keep a track on it.

 

Q:    When the first Quicksilver movie came out, you guys were in production. Did some of the things you planned on doing get beaten to the punch?

ATJ:    I don't know. I haven't seen it yet so I don't really know.  I don't feel.  Just cause also, I mean, uh, when -- when the job came around, it was already, everybody, it was already out there.  I think it was already shooting, you know, so it wasn't like we were like all, you and me, it's, Oh should I really be taking on a Character that's already--  We looked at the two different Universes and you kind of, you know, where, um, I – don’t feel threatened nor do we go like we're saying that's, you know, the wrong thing.  It's just that's one thing and we're doing something different.  But yeah, I haven't watched it to kind of be like Oh, they're doing the Slow Mo Super Speed kind of Action shots. 

 

Q:    In the comics, Quicksilver has quite a very distinctive costume that he wears. Do you eventually transition to something like that that towards the end of the movie? Do you have something he wears that can hold up to that kind of speed. Moving fast, more fabric could get in the way… 

ATJ:    Cause it’s so early on, I'm just more of a civilian really like they're more sort of Eastern European kind of Travelers that are kind of just, um, you know, uh, picking out clothes as they go along, you know, um, and I can't really say too much about it but yeah, I think the way that we've designed picking out the costumes is -- is in like, uh, with that kind of thought in mind like you know, I think some of the things I wear is more of a lot more kind of sporty, um, long sleeves.  It's like a Cycle Top and you know, sort of, uh, compression T-Shirts and things like that, that, uh, kind of give that kind of physique so you can sense an idea of it.

 

Q:    Do you have a favorite Avenger other than yourself?

ATJ:    Well I wasn't gonna say myself. Um, it's a real hard one.  Yesterday, uh, we did a scene and we had the whole cast in.  Um, uh, and -- and it's a hard one cause when you really look at it and go actually, most people are kind of, so like the Hulk is one of the awesome, I think really awesome Avenger.  But essentially, when he's not the Hulk, he's just like a Scientist, he's Banner, you know, so uh, and then obviously Iron man, Tony Stark not in Iron Man’s thing he’s not a super hero, then he kinda is and then you look around the room…

And the only one that is essentially of a worldly Superhero physique You know, you see like his arms, it's like the size of my thigh [LAUGHTER] and you kind of think that, just the kind of be an Actor, try to form your Physique, Body to that kind of level and really, and essentially, he's God so he's 6 foot 4.  He's just like, you know, but he's such a great guy.  I mean everyone is charming and brilliant and a lot of fun but uh, he look at what that guy is definitely, you know, a Superhero, you know.

 

Q:    I don’t want to say hatred, but Pietro and Wanda have issues with the Captain America, the Avengers and Tony Stark in general. How much of their backstory are we going to learn? I mean we met them at the end of Captain America. Are we going to learn how that came about or is that something we don’t have time to really get into?

ATJ:    Yeah, I think so.  Yeah, that was a real take on the Origin story and Uh, that was like a small little taste and I think, um, absolutely, I think that's -- that's definitely just to get you start to think like that and then that's, you know, they'll have that.

 

Q:    So this Movie will cover some of their origins?

ATJ:    Yeah, I think we'll embrace it yeah definitely, very heavy and you'll get a sense of it.

 

Q:    Do you think you'd be able to win a foot race with the cast?

ATJ:    A foot race, what's a foot race?  Just running?  I mean, it would be pretty embarrassing if I couldn't [LAUGHTER]  It depends.  If they're in their costumes I would [LAUGHTER]  I think I would be super fast.  Hemsworth would be fast, but he's got a lot of weight there.  I'll keep with that one.  Let's keep the illusion going.

 

Q:    Kick Ass was kind of a break out role for you and to a large extent it demolishes the notion of super heroes. Was there ever a moment where you were hesitate to actually make the jump to do actual super hero films?

ATJ:    I think anyone hesitates when you get to be, you know, I'm flattered and honored to be called in to be part of The Avengers. I don't think you hesitate.  Um, I think it's, uh, you know, for me, I had to almost sort of slow down and go  before I got get over in my head and go yeah, absolutely, where do I sign, you know.  I kind of have to kind of go, you know, focus in, you know, is there a Character there?  Is there something that I can actually bring to the table, you know, whereas I don't want to be just another Superhero added on.  Well there's no, what's the kind of storyline?  What's the plot, you know?  Do I hesitate and I say no not really.  I mean, um, and I hope that also that you know, when you watch it, people don't go assuming or looking kind of go that’s Kick Ass, that doesn’t really work. Some people can get very sort of like, um, sort of just channeled into one thing.   And I mean, again it's great Kick Ass put me on and Map in many ways but I've been working before that a long time and doing Independent roles and -- and trying to put Characters in other Movies.  And uh, I don't know, Savages were very different to that.

And I think you know, and hopefully, what we've done in this by looking different and -- and change it out with accents and things like that that we can kind of give another -- another kind of tone to it that people won't assume, you know.  I hope so anyway.

 

Q:    Are you championing your own solo movie with Scarlet Witch? Do you think there is enough material for that to happen?

ATJ:    I wasn't -- I wasn't thinking, I wasn't thinking on that line.  I thought, if anything, it would be, you know, I don't know.  They'd probably sort of tag us into someone else’s, you know.  You know, there's, uh, I mean, they've got their own Comic Book so there's got to be something.  You know, it's up to the Marvel guys, they kind of wanted to go that route.  I'm not gonna-- 

 

Q:    Would you be game?

ATJ:   Absolutely, with these guys, it's a lot of fun.  It's a great Studio to be a part of and I'm not just saying that cause it's like that -- that's the kind of easiest thing to say.  It's like, you know, you work with other big sort of Studio Movies and you're just one of the Film in the mix of many others and you're just a Character and many other in their Films. Like Marvel guys only care about the Marvel Universe and the Characters they came from so therefore, they, that's all they think about creatively and care about.  And they care about the storyline and they're not, you know.  So it becomes a really creative kind of family and -- and a place that yeah, I enjoy working.  So and that's -- and the experience for me is always overall whatever the outcome is or whatever so cause this is how I work, and it's part of my life and important to have fun and work with good people, you know.
