Hey everyone, so I have another question for this site. I was wondering the other day, that we don't know how old the Maximoff are. So if anyone know, when there birthday is, or how old they are, I would like to hear it.
The approximate ages are 18-25. (According to reddit)
Definitely not 18. They look waaayyyy too old to be 18.
Both actors are in their late 20’s now, so I would say they are around 25 in Age of Ultron.
This is on the 1990s page. The only evidence we have is the actors' ages.
Let me quickly explain the weighted maths we use. Essentially, when using actors' ages to calculate a character's approximate date of birth, the younger the actor is in the scene, the more weight that part of the calculation becomes. This is because as you get older, there is more leniency to how old you might be. If a 2-year-old actor played a character in a film, then the character is not going to be more than a few months older or younger than that actor's age. But, if, say, a 40-year-old actor played a character in a film, then there's more leniency. That character could be as young as in their early 30s or as old as in their late 40s.
If an actor who was exactly 2 years 0 days old played a character in scenes set in May 2018, then that would mean the character was probably born around May 2016. Then what if you had a different actor, who is 40 years 0 days old, playing the character in scenes set in May 2060? That on its own would mean the character was probably born around May 2020. To find the character's actual date of birth, you wouldn't just take an average of May 2016 and May 2020 and get May 2018, that would make the character 0 in the 2018 scene. You'd weight them accordingly, and you'd get about June 2016. The character's a month younger than the 2-year-old actor in those scenes, and about 13 months older than the 40-year-old actor in those scenes.
The weighting we use is 1 divided by age (in years). 1/age.
So, the important information:
-The Captain America: The Winter Soldier mid-credits scene was filmed during post-production, around December 2013-January 2014, so approximately December 31.5, 2013/January 0.5, 2014.
--The scene is set on January 15, 2014.
-Avengers: Age of Ultron was filmed February 11, 2014-August 6, 2014, the middle of which was May 10, 2014.
--The middle of the film is set on May 4, 2015.
-Captain America: Civil War was filmed April 27, 2015-August 22, 2015, the middle of which was June 24.5, 2015.
--The middle of the film is set on June 23, 2016.
-Avengers: Infinity War was filmed January 23, 2017-July 14, 2017, the middle of which was April 19, 2017.
--The middle of the film is set on January 11, 2018.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson was born on June 13, 1990. Therefore:
-He was approximately 8602.5 days old (23.55236) at the time of filming the CA:TWS mid-credits scene.
--This would place Pietro's date of birth at approximately January 15, 2014 - 8602.5 days = June 27.5, 1990.
-He was approximately 8732 days old (23.90691) at the middle of filming A:AoU.
--This would place Pietro's date of birth at approximately May 4, 2015 - 8732 days = June 7, 1991.
---Overall, Pietro's date of birth, on his own, comes out as approximately ([June 27.5, 1990]*(1/23.55236)+[June 7, 1991]*(1/23.90691))/((1/23.55236)+(1/23.90691)) = December 15.46318, 1990.
Elizabeth Olsen was born on February 16, 1989. Therefore:
-She was approximately 9084.5 days old (24.87201) at the time of filming the CA:TWS mid-credits scene.
--This would place Wanda's date of birth at approximately January 15, 2014 - 9084.5 days = March 2.5, 1989.
-She was approximately 9214 days old (25.22656) at the middle of filming A:AoU.
--This would place Wanda's date of birth at approximately May 4, 2015 - 9214 days = February 10, 1990.
-She was approximately 9624.5 days old (26.35044) at the middle of filming CA:CW.
--This would place Wanda's date of birth at approximately June 23, 2016 - 9624.5 days = February 15.5, 1990.
-She was approximately 10,289 days old (28.16975) at the middle of filming A:IW.
--This would place Wanda's date of birth at approximately January 11, 2018 - 10,289 days = November 10, 1989.
---Overall, Wanda's date of birth, on her own, comes out as approximately ([March 2.5, 1989]*(1/24.87201)+[February 10, 1990]*(1/25.22656)+[February 15.5, 1990]*(1/26.35044)+[November 10, 1989]*(1/28.16975))/((1/24.87201)+(1/25.22656)+(1/26.35044)+(1/28.16975)) = October 22.70270, 1989.
-Pietro's average age was (23.55236*(1/23.55236)+23.90691*(1/23.90691))/((1/23.55236)+(1/23.90691)), or simply 2/((1/23.55236)+(1/23.90691)) = 23.72831.
-Wanda's average age was 4/((1/24.87201)+(1/25.22656)+(1/26.35044)+(1/28.16975)) = 26.09336.
--([December 15.46318, 1990]*(1/23.72831)+[October 22.70270, 1989]*(1/26.09336))/((1/23.72831)+(1/26.09336)) = May 30.02228, 1990.
Conclusion: As things stand currently, the actors' ages would place the Maximoff twins' date of birth at approximately May 30, 1990.
Which would make them:
-23 (23.6) in Captain America: The Winter Soldier
-24 (24.9) in Avengers: Age of Ultron
-26 (26.1) in Captain America: Civil War
-27 (27.6) in Avengers: Infinity War
I am just going to keep it simple.
Aaron Taylor Johnson: June 13, 1990.
(now 27 years, 11/12 months)
Elizabeth Olsen: February 16, 1989.
(now 29 years, 3/12 months)
They are twins in the MCU, so same age abviously.
Steve Rogers (who said it was 75 years between WW2 and Age of Ultron which was incorrect) said Wanda is a teenager in Civil War, in which he must have just exaggerated it. He probably doesn't know the difference between Young Adult and a Teenager or that word just slipped out of his mouth as he was argueing with Tony. MCU is also not stupid to cast actors/actresses at their late 20's for a teenager role (ignoring other Holywood movies).
So for the MCU i am going for ages closer to their respective actors/actresses age. Like for Tom Holland in where they deducted about 5 years from his real age for Spiderman role, i am going to subtract 5 years from Elizabeth's age (as she is older than Aaron) as well for the Maximoff twin's role.
So Wanda and Pietro are about 24 years of age.
I'm not sure where this misconception comes from about Steve saying she was a teenager, he never says that. He says, "She's just a kid," as in, "She's young and still learning." Teenager is never used.
@BEJT....was it? I am not sure why I used teenager. Apologies.
I think that Steve called her a kid, only because he is like what, 96 years old. So to him a 25-30 year old person is a kid.
What do you think?
