Elizabeth Olsen has hinted that she will be sporting a very different Avengers costume to what her character wears in the comics.

The Martha Marcy May Marlene actress told Total Film that she wouldn't feel comfortable in anything too revealing, but was keeping her Scarlet Witch outfit tightly under wraps for the time being.

Revealing the cast had already had some costume fittings for Avengers: Age Of Ultron, she said: "My favourite piece is my secrecy cloak that prevents anyone from seeing what I'm wearing. There's a hood and a robe. It protects the image."

Elizabeth admitted she would have turned down any costume that was too racy, but added: "I don't think Joss (Whedon, director) ever would have hired me, honestly, if he wanted me to wear those outfits.

"I am not a professional athlete and nor am I a model. Wearing those costumes wouldn't be fun for anyone who wasn't those things.

"He already had a different idea. It respects and involves the comic book character, but it's different, more rooted. It's for someone today."

Elizabeth elaborated: "Well, if someone walked around wearing what she wore in the comics, people would stop and say, 'What the hell... she thinks she's a superhero!'."

Avengers: Age Of Ultron is due to be released in cinemas on May 1, 2015.
