Possible Description Of Paul Bettany's 'Vision' Costume For AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Possible Description Of Paul Bettany's 'Vision' Costume For AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

It's only been a few hour since we heard Bettany would suit up as the colorful android in Joss Whedon's Avengers sequel, but the CBT boys have put their London scooper to work and claim to have come up with a description of how he'll look in the movie. Click on to see what you think.

Last night the Daily Mail were the first to break the news that the man who's provided the voice of Tony Stark's A.I. Jarvis in 4 previous Marvel Studios movies would next be seen in front of the camera as The Vision in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. In their report they also mention that Bettany was undergoing make up tests to get the "chalk white" look of the character. Well, the CBT team have a source close to the production at Shepperton Studios outside of London, and their description of the costume that's apparently hanging in the studio right now seems to stick a lot closer to The Vision's more widely known look from the comics.

"It has a helmet akin to the Iron Man armor, but it’s designed more like a face than a smooth Stark helmet. The iconic yellow and green are present in the design, but it’s more metallic shades than bright ‘comic book colors.’ They said it reminds them somewhat of the T-100 from Terminator 2 but it’s not as shiny. The yellow metal “liquid” bits seem to light up. This may or may not happen since there are two designs for that section. One lights up the other doesn’t. That’s the only difference. The cape is present, but they say it appears to only “pop out” when in flight mode. The cape sports some similar shades of yellow as the body. The “neck pieces” are the same yellow but they seem to shift positions from “standing” (for lack of a better word) to “flight mode.”

You'll notice there's no mention of the face, and that could be for two reasons: As mentioned above, they'll either be applying makeup to Bettany to give him that metallic android appearance or, as CBT report, they're toying with the idea of using an actual helmet/mask - though word is they're afraid audiences might think of the Vision as a "colorful copy of Iron Man". Obviously until we see a pic for ourselves we can't be sure any of this is accurate, but CBT are reliable lads so I'll be taking their word for it. What do you guys think?

"reminds them somewhat of the T-1000 from Terminator 2"

Crap. I thought only Bryan Singer would be stupid enough to make a Marvel character look like that with his future sentinal.
themidnightking - 2/7/2014, 9:07 AM
Didn't @McNyango say that he is going to a pre screening of The Winter Soldier today?
DefcoN - 2/7/2014, 9:08 AM
Wow, at this pace we'll probably get a full picture from Vision before we see the new Batman.
McNyagano - 2/7/2014, 9:10 AM
Mmmm I wanna see a picture. Not liking the Iron Man armour bit. We'll see.
charlie2094 - 2/7/2014, 9:10 AM
Awesome! Can't wait to see it!

Just hope we've pretty much got all the characters that will be in the film...with the original six Avengers, plus 3 more, Von Strucker, SHIELD and Ultron, got more than enough for one film
ezio619 - 2/7/2014, 9:11 AM
i hope this year is more positive,i hope this year, the 4superhero films have a more positive response then last year,IM3 was mixed/divisive. MOS was a mixed/divisive and while the wolverine and thor 2 were more positive, they had their share of detractors,i just wish this year, that the movies are good so we can go" oh man, that moment was so good" or his story arc was great etc.
McNyagano - 2/7/2014, 9:13 AM

Shhhh ;)
LordMushu - 2/7/2014, 9:13 AM
Interesting take if true
SpiderParker - 2/7/2014, 9:13 AM
Do write a review about Cap2. :D
ezio619 - 2/7/2014, 9:14 AM
charlie2094-i hope so too!!
themidnightking - 2/7/2014, 9:16 AM
You lucky son of a gun! I have to wait another two months! lol
Cles - 2/7/2014, 9:17 AM
I'm going to reserve my judgment on this one. I was very excited about the confirmation of Vision, but I'm not too sure that I'm feeling the design. With that said, a lot can be lost in the written word. Maybe he looks better than the description lets on. Additionally, why would Bettany be in makeup tests if Vision is going to look like a T1000? Maybe this is what he looks like before an exterior skin is applied?
Malcopunch - 2/7/2014, 9:17 AM
Personally i would of done it similar to the Persona 3 Androids but this is stil good
Darthzilla - 2/7/2014, 9:18 AM
Is the face red?
ezio619 - 2/7/2014, 9:19 AM
spiderparker-they might embargo him from writing a review till closer to release
dellamorte1872 - 2/7/2014, 9:20 AM
Glad he at least has his iconic look, made me a lil worried that he would be all white like he used to be. I like the casting, he def was cast well look wise. I can see BETTANY as this character more so than any other MARVEL character. Just need them to admit PYM created the A.I that STARK has been using and that THAT helped in ULTRONs creation. This way like other mediums they can both get the credit for ULTRON
dellamorte1872 - 2/7/2014, 9:21 AM
They did that in the 'toon
themidnightking - 2/7/2014, 9:22 AM
@SpiderParker @ezio619
I got embargoed when I attended a pre screening of 47 Ronin

McNyagano - 2/7/2014, 9:24 AM
Guys I'm on my way now. Jeez relax LOL. I'm signing a NDA so I won't be allowed to say anything about the movie until March probably. Sorry.
jimoakley666 - 2/7/2014, 9:25 AM
I think the cape would be a big mistake.
SpiderParker - 2/7/2014, 9:25 AM
@Ezio I suppose you are right. But maybe someone might leak something.
Nomis - 2/7/2014, 9:29 AM
Got to see it first before i judge it.

But at least from this description they are making it look more like the traditional Vision look from the comics albeit tweaked somewhat, than the "white" version, which is a good thing!

Oh...and adding a Cape FTW!
ekrolo2 - 2/7/2014, 9:29 AM
I hope to God they don't use the comics Vision costume, that thing would look awful in live action.
Pasto - 2/7/2014, 9:29 AM
Only 9 people in chat, lets step it up. CBM is a place to make friends and lovers.

The vision's body shouldn't be metallic.. If they're going for the white look, then he should look like this:

[frick] him looking like a yellow, green and red Iron Man
YeezusWept - 2/7/2014, 9:31 AM
So he'll have a metallic "human" face like T-1000? Awesome! As long as they don't do the same for Ultron, I'll be satisfied.
MrCBM56 - 2/7/2014, 9:32 AM
Sounds pretty awesome.
Cles - 2/7/2014, 9:32 AM
@dellamorte I think it would be cool, but I don't think it is happening. This guy called it a while back POSSIBLE SPOILERS http://archive.foolz.us/co/thread/53544727/ . If you scroll down the thread a bit he says that Pym is not part of the Ultron equation. That could have changed, but I'm not holding my breath.

neonkid-whedon has said that ultron is a character that evolves so we will see different forms
