PanARMENIAN.Net - "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is now filming in Italy. Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen were spotted on set, giving an early sneak peek at Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in the movie. A pre-CGI look at the main baddie, Ultron, was also shown as a man wearing a metallic armor and helmet joined them during the filming, AceShowbiz said.
Johnson sported grey hair and form-fitting suit, while a smoky-eyed Olsen rocked a red jacket on top of her black dress, ripped socks, and a pair of doc martins. They shot chaotic battle scenes amidst the crumbling buildings, cracks on the ground, people running scared, and cars getting turned over and lit on fire.
Jeremy Renner who plays Hawkeye and Joss Whedon who serves as a director were seen on location as well. Some men wearing motion-capture suits were also involved in the filming which took place at a parking lot under the sunny sun against the backdrops of Italian hills.
