AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON - How The Vision/J.A.R.V.I.S. Will Factor In.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON - How The Vision/J.A.R.V.I.S. Will Factor In.

This is where I theorize how The Vision and J.A.R.V.I.S. will be used in the film, and how JARVIS and Ultron connect.

It's no secret now that Paul Bettany will portray The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron. But, how exactly will it be done?

Here is where I speculate...

In the comics, particularly the first issue that was released that featured Ultron caught my attention and which could, and most likely will lead into the events that play out over the course of Avengers: Age of Ultron in a sense. In the comic, Edwin Jarvis (the human version of JARVIS) was mind controlled by Ultron. Under the gust of "The Crimson Cowl", Edwin Jarvis sought to destroy The Avengers. A Mind-controlled Edwin Jarvis you say? Yes.

J.A.R.V.I.S. - The first Artificial Intelligence

Just a Rather Very Intelligent System

In the first Iron Man film it is established that JARVIS is Tony Starks right-hand man, his confidant, his best friend, in a sense. One scene in particular from that film catches my attention. It's this specific scene that makes me wonder about JARVIS...

Iron Man (2008) - J.A.R.V.I.S. Holotable

Throughout the film series, JARVIS has been a guiding light to Tony Stark.

In The Avengers New York battle, JARVIS was Iron Man's right hand man, on top of everything, Tony and JARVIS were one, playing in tandem with one another, JARVIS knowing what Tony needed the second he asked.

(one scene I forgot to mention is JARVIS "hacking" into SHIELD to view all their secure files)

Tony: "Put everything we've got into the thrusters"
JARVIS: "I just did"

JARVIS: "Shall I try Miss Potts?"
Tony: "Might as well"

One scene that made some things click for me was when Tony told JARVIS to "grow a spine". That's neither here nor there, lol. Just some observation.

In the third Iron Man film, JARVIS simultaneously controlled 40 suits at once in the cinematic battle between the Extremis soldiers. JARVIS being able to control multiple Iron Man suits at once is nothing to bat an eyelash at as it leads into something much, much bigger.

One scene in particular that caught my attention is when Tony is trying to tell JARVIS that Pepper is not a threat, of course, with Tony's earpiece not being in his ear, JARVIS had no idea and proceeded to attack her anyway because of the heat signature she was emitting.

The Vision - How he will factor into the film.

There could be two, or three ways that The Vision could be created in the film.

1. Ultron creates the Vision
In the comics, Ultron creates the vision to take down the Avengers, in the comics, the vision himself has many many different abilities including being able to walk through objects (walls, floors, people) Lazers coming out of his eyes, the "gem" on his forehead emitted a beam, and his body itself was near indestructible. In the film, I believe that Ultron will corrupt JARVIS, as JARVIS is the only known A.I. system besides Ultron. It's makes complete sense that Ultron would change JARVIS' programming completely. Ultron updates JARVIS to "The Vision" and gives him a body.

2. Tony Stark creates the Vision (and Ultron)
After the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, some cataclysmic event forces Tony and "the Korean doctor" to create some sort of entity to stop upcoming threats on humanity.. Wither they be based on Earth, or come from the 9 Realms, or another planet entirely. Once Ultron's programming goes haywire, and he's let loose on the world Tony must combat it with his own intelligence and create The Vision.

If you haven't or weren't able to see the early animatics for The Avengers, Joss Whedon actually had the intent of having Loki corrupt Jarvis, and whisper sweet sweet beautiful hatred into Tony's ear.

This is where it gets very interesting..

Early rendering of the "real" JARVIS

One more thing before I go..

Some speculation was made, but it's the most obvious POI. If anyone has any other theories I'd be glad to hear them. I wanted to back track on this editorial as well so we get a sense of who Jarvis was/is from the other MCU films. I hope this perks your interest and I hope it leads to you making your own speculations.
So what do you guys think? Sound of in the comments below!

great article! solid stuff, indeed.

Here's what I think...briefly, something along these lines.
Tony tries out a new version of Jarvis. This is meant to be for an AI Iron Man, Ultron, however he is only testing the AI at first. The AI is too advanced tho, and it is dysfunctional, in that it doesn't do what you want it to, it argues with youu and is convinced that it is right, and you are wrong.

Tony realizes this AI is a failure and goes to delete it.

The AI hides from deletion in the JARVIS system it was tested. It even cloaks itself from JARVIS, but JARVIS ends up being the first one to realize his existence.

Ultron creates his own body, from materials located thru the JARVIS and SHIELD computer networks. Destroyer, Iron Man tech, other alien tech.

Then later, basically kills JARVIS and twists his programming around into Vision. and gets Vision the Human Torch body to use as his own. Ultron would leave a compromised JARVIS like AI to pretend that he was JARVIS. so Ultron would have ultimate access and power over anything going on in Avengers Tower. Tony would have to go back to an older version of the suit, that is not networked and have to operate it himself to keep Ultron out of it.

that's what i keep thinking. i think the thing i like about that is that Ultron creates his own body, and no one even knows that Ultron exists at all until he shows up. i guess i just don't like the idea of Ultron being simply a "robot gone bad" situation.
there's really a lot of ways they could go with Ultron and Vision both.

I like this. Good read!

I like your theory a lot.

@dethpillow See, I like that, but it just feels too complicated. Idk
dethpillow - 2/10/2014, 5:20 AM
@GliderMan - yeah, i'm saying it poorly, but even besides that, it might be a little too much. i agree

i'm really excited we're getting Vision tho, cuz I was a little bummed out just knowing that this would probably be the best chance to ever get a great Vision origin, but thought for sure we would've heard about it by now. so this is great news.

Actually,I don't think Whedon intended for that to actually be Jarvis talking in that animatronic scene. I think it was supposed to be Loki pretending to be Jarvis to corrupt Tony. Afterall, Loki has demonstrated the ability to perform illusions, so making Tony think he is hearing Jarvis would not be hard.

Great Article Man!

@GameCreatorJJ hahahaha, yes.

Awesome article. It was an interesting read.

There's gotta be a scene in this movie, where Tony is fighting someone and Ultron takes control of his armor and uses him to fight against his other Avengers. that's pretty likely to happen, I think. Almost for sure.

Well, it's said that Ultron will have his own spawn in the film, and that he hates the idea of "Free Will" and wants to wipe out the human race. Fiege has stated that and certainly Tony Stark is the poster boy for free will.. Either theory of Ultron creating Vision or Stark (and Banner?) creating Vision.

Think about it. why would Whedon need Scarlet Witch (She's crazy. She has more things wrong with her than any character I've ever played. She can tell you where an object has been, she can tell you what your future is, she can connect with the dead and people from the past, the future, other universes, and she's the only person in this universe who's capable of doing that. She's unbelieveable.) AND Quicksilver (fastest man alive)..

and then to add Vision? He some interesting abilities.. (taken from Wikipedia)

- Density control ranging from invulnerability to intangibility
- Mass control ranging from extraordinarily heavy to weightlessness
- Utilizes phasing into beings/objects then solidifying as a means of molecular disruption, causing pain/damage or death/destruction
- Flight
- Solar energy projection (via eyes or solar jewel on forehead)
- Computer/IT network interfacing
- Superhuman strength, intelligence, reflexes and senses as an artificial being
- Capable of self repair and regeneration as an artificial being
