New FX reels showcase superpowers for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Age of Ultron

Two new videos have been released over the weekend showcasing the cool superpowers of Pietro Maximoff (aka Quicksilver) and his twin sister Wanda (aka Scarlet Witch) in Avengers: Age of Ultron -- as well as some nifty FX breakdowns for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The first video comes courtesy of FuseFX, the VFX company responsible for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s visual effects, which landed them a 2015 Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Visual Effects category for Episode 19, "The Dirty Half Dozen." In the VFX breakdown featurette, you can see how FuseFX created some stunning photo-realistic vehicles (including a 'sploding Bus) and much, much more -- with Skye’s (aka Quake, played by Chloe Bennet) badass Inhuman powers kicking things off in style. Have a look:


The second video is a new Blu-ray featurette for Avengers: Age of Ultron that found its way online. It focuses on the way director Joss Whedon and the powers-that-be designed Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch’s (Elizabeth Olsen) awesome comic-book powers for Marvel’s early summer tentpole movie.
