Paul Bettany Teases Future Plans For 'The Vision' After AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

It's no biggie to know that actors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have multi-picture deals, but Paul Bettany has implied he knows exactly what's next for his newfound Age of Ultron role as the Vision.

During a recent interview for his role in Mortdecai, Paul Bettany talked a bit about playing the Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and implied that he knows what's next for the android character. "That's the really great thing about the Marvel gig for me," said the English actor of signing the studio's mandatory multi-picture contract. "I have never known if I have had a job six months out ever in my life. And now I know that they have plans and I can be even more judicious about the stuff that I do outside of that work. I can wait for the right thing and feel really attached to it." Bettany then revealed that he hadn't seen any of the past Marvel Cinematic Universe movies prior to knowing he'd be playing the Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron. "I did a lot of research — and my research was watching all of the films," he said, laughing. "I realised they are so interlinked and I wanted to understand the universe I was in. So I did and it was a really amazing, fun experience — especially going from my tiny, 20-day movie with no money and no trailers to this behemoth film was just great." He continued, "Everybody made me feel really at home and I have no bad stories — they are really funny people and really creative. I have never seen sets that big in my whole career. I have never seen set pieces like it — we were in a set that felt like a town."

Though we've yet to get an official look at Paul Bettany as the Vision, who is created by Ultron in The Avengers sequel, toys and merchandise have been marketing the android as a new Avenger. Therefore, it's not at all surprising to know that Marvel Studios has more in store for him. It's also very likely that Bettany is referring to the two-part Avengers: Infinity War movies as his next gig(s). However, could he maybe appear in Captain America: Civil War beforehand? What do you think?

Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure. Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision. Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” published in 1963. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Avengers: Age of Ultron May 1, 2015.

JoeMomma29 - 1/28/2015, 6:37 AM
No worries Vision..... you will get more screen time and become an official member of The Avengers before War Machine and Falcon!

MonsterSquad35 - 1/28/2015, 6:38 AM
Bettany/Vision is gonna kick ass. Glad this character is happening.

That would actually make a cool avatar.
LubedUp - 1/28/2015, 6:40 AM
Have a feeling he will "die" at the end of AoU and be rebuilt in time for Infinity War
LEVITIKUZ - 1/28/2015, 6:40 AM
Hey @Tainted87 I see your member of the day and I've been meaning to ask you something.

Where did you get that Kirby/DC gif as your avatar?
DannyRand1225 - 1/28/2015, 6:41 AM
I kinda hope we don't see The Vision till the movie..he could be THE breakout character of the film
MightyZeus - 1/28/2015, 6:41 AM
I know what they can finally do with The Vision.

Have The Young Avengers and then The Runaways.
Hulksta - 1/28/2015, 6:41 AM
MCU actor has signed a multi-picture deal. What a shocker!

slickrickdesigns - 1/28/2015, 6:42 AM

since Whedon has said that Ultron Creates Vision in order to sow that he too can create life.the scenes between James Spader as Ultron and Paul Bettany as Vision are gonna be SCHWEETT!

I thought the Jets were gonna
show the Penguins how much
they've improved, man?!?!
So...umm...what happened there?
LEVITIKUZ - 1/28/2015, 6:55 AM
On topic, I hope that Vision steals the show.

Mostly because I want to see Martian Manhunter in the Justice League film and both are similar in some ways.

Can go through walls
Wears capes
Aren't human looking members of the team
Both are badasses

I mean, yea there are major differences like one being a robot and one being a Martian.

But hell most people find Brainiac and Ultron similar even though Brainiac is an alien who collects cities of worlds and destroys those worlds and Ultron is a robot who just wants to kill all humans.
MercwithMouth - 1/28/2015, 6:56 AM

The refs won the game...and Pavelec was not good.
DefcoN - 1/28/2015, 6:57 AM
I love that he got an even bigger role. He's been in the MCU since the beginning. Totally deserved.
MightyZeus - 1/28/2015, 6:58 AM
I hope Vision has a bad ass long flowing cape.
LEVITIKUZ - 1/28/2015, 7:03 AM

Seems like he will

The MCU is already so big with so many heroes and characters and facets, and with Age of Ultron it is going to explode to an incredible degree, and even more in the months and years to follow. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has become the coolest thing ever done in the history of the mediums.
blackandyellow - 1/28/2015, 7:14 AM
I'm so confused. How could the hapless Pens win against the mighty Jets without Sid and Geno?!?!

slickrickdesigns - 1/28/2015, 7:15 AM

Thats why everyone whose a big Marvel Studios fan trashed the Foxt4stic teaser… Because Marvel knows how to bring the hype… Fox should've just put the things balls and shaft in the trailer, oh wait they did… lol…

But yes, the trailer doesn't give away too much but gets me so hype for the movie…

LEVITIKUZ - 1/28/2015, 7:16 AM
All this Hockey talk...

How about the Cleveland Cavs on a 7 game win streak.

MercwithMouth - 1/28/2015, 7:17 AM

Did you watch the game?
blackandyellow - 1/28/2015, 7:17 AM
The NBA sucks balls.
MercwithMouth - 1/28/2015, 7:18 AM

Who the hell are those goofs?
IronDean2099 - 1/28/2015, 7:21 AM
He better be in the Civil War. Him as Starks right hand man and Scarlet Witch on Caps team. That could create interesting tension if he then becomes conflicted because of his feelings for her.
Ghostyy - 1/28/2015, 7:22 AM
@slickrickdesigns As a huge MCU fan i liked the F4 trailer.Great cinematography and music and the visuals looked great.
