Paul Bettany Finally Confirms Voicing J.A.R.V.I.S. Once More For THE AVENGERS

Nothing too surprising, but considering the British actor, Paul Bettany, wasn't too sure he'd reprise his Iron Man voice-role in The Avengers, he now is. Check it out!

The last we heard from British actor Paul Bettany, regarding once again lending his 'J.A.R.V.I.S.' voice from the Iron Man movies to the armored hero's next appearance in The Avengers, back in May, he was fairly unsure. But now, with the highly-anticipated film in post-production, Bettany confirmed with Ifpress that he's been asked to return; even though he hasn't already done so.

"This is pretty much the way it always goes," says Bettany, who played J.A.R.V.I.S. in both Iron Man movies and has been told he has a part in The Avengers.

"I never get the call until literally about a month or two before the movie comes out, and then they bring me in once everything else is done. I'm literally the last person hired. It's exactly like voicing animation, except I don't even have to sync to anything. It's the easiest gig in the world."


Again, I'm not too surprised by this news, so I don't expect you to be either. But it's really comforting knowing that we'll hear that calm voice that became quickly familiar with in Iron Man's 2008 debut, in one of next summer's most highly-anticipated films. It's also no surprise Bettany hasn't recorded any lines yet, considering we have 6 months at-most remaining til the release. Bettany is expected to return for Iron Man 3, hitting May 3, 2013.


Marvel's The Avengers is the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner with Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Hiddleston, directed by Joss Whedon, Marvel's The Avengers will be released May 4, 2012.

Hey VirVespertilio, shut up you sad sack.
MaddMonkk - 11/19/2011, 11:20 PM
I would like a live action Jarvis, but this will do. Maybe Alfred will be a robot in the Batman reboot.

@virvespertilio

Well we can now tell that you are a fanboy of DC. Why not hope for success so that DC can do a Justice League movie? I usually don't feed trolls but your comment was so lacking, I felt compelled to do so. You should keep your words light and fluffy because you never know when you will have to eat them. True comic book movie fans want good stories and root for the movies (regardless of the company) because the better the movies do, the more likely we are to have more diverse forms of them. Good luck living with those blinders. You're going to miss a lot!

@VerVespertilio really why do you come on a page that concerns the avengers if all you want to do is trash it oh wait I know why cause a little kid is probably more mature then you
vinnievincentchente - 11/19/2011, 11:25 PM
Bettany is so underrated. I enjoyed Priest. Haven't read the manga (Or comic) but i really liked it.
MrLoki - 11/19/2011, 11:28 PM
Didn't we already know he would be back?
Anyway, it's great news :D

Oh man !! your comment made me laugh so hard...

I only see one problem with avengers. After what is going to be such an epic outing for these guys, how do you bring them back to solo movies? It won't be anything near as grand as avengers. It's not like comics where it's a monthly series. I think avengers will be the climax of the CBM. Anything afterwards is just anticlimactic.
Kayo - 11/19/2011, 11:42 PM
@loki: right you are sir
EditNinja - 11/19/2011, 11:43 PM
If anyone needs sleeping tablets, download and watch Margin Call.
pro346 - 11/20/2011, 12:03 AM
@editninja agreed snooze fest pro movie critics loved it usually means everybody else hates it ,same goes for conan critics hated it I loved it!
AK47 - 11/20/2011, 12:21 AM
This guy needs 2 play Ultron!
NeoBaggins - 11/20/2011, 12:33 AM
^^^BEAT ME TO IT!!!!^^^^^
NeoBaggins - 11/20/2011, 12:37 AM
Certain things get retweaked in the live-action movies anyway. It would be sick if Jarvis evolved into Ultron. I think Pym would HAVE TO be somewhere in there though.

Maybe this Alien invasion does something to Iron Man's armor in turn soemthing to Jarvis. Maybe Ultron could be one of Starks suits or something lol I dunno. It would be dope to have Bettany's demeanor and tone change. A sleeper villain waiting to break out all this time.
Ace101 - 11/20/2011, 1:07 AM
@Loki668 very well said
@AK47 and @NeoBaggins that is such an awesome idea i would love for that to play out. i could see him pulling out silas/ Micheal voice to it.

nimso - 11/20/2011, 1:29 AM
@VirVespertilio how are you slating marvel and the avenager when u have Deadpool (the coolest of the lot) as ya thumb nail.
SuperSomething616 - 11/20/2011, 2:29 AM
@ MalcomReynolds: The batwing against the whole avengers team?

Come on....really?
superpooper - 11/20/2011, 3:08 AM
I've always really enjoyed Paul Bettanys' work as an actor. Too bad Legion and Priest were such crap films. I'd love to see him get better roles.
heisei24 - 11/20/2011, 3:39 AM
@Illwill if it sucks,who cares?
genesis609 - 11/20/2011, 4:23 AM
i bet ur pepper potts will have a cameo too, as well as jane foster
VirVespertilio - 11/20/2011, 4:30 AM
sorry sorry i don't want to be like Intruder but honestly do you people really think this movie will have a good story? Its going to be the same old stuff, im sorry but the truth is The Dark Knight Rises will be better. Can't run from that.
@loki668 omg biggest rich tdkr will destroy the avengers storyline. Cannot believe you would even bring that up. The team behind tdkr will stay true to the batman comics while at the same time bring a sophisticated script, the avengers script will be for the kids. And ur a comicbook nerd, biggest rich saying that shizza bout the blinders we all know your some lame 40 year old virgin living with his mother, who just sits at his computer, hypocritical ickhole. I live in Australia so won't respond for ages.
Keep it real my friends
Tkiller - 11/20/2011, 4:39 AM
I think this movie's gonna be as epic as TDKR. They both have a lot of potential. 2012 will be one of the best years for CMBs!! It's foolish to state that something is gonna suck only because ti is DC's or Marvel's. I will enjoy them both.
VirVespertilio - 11/20/2011, 4:39 AM
also i admit i was trolling before just want to show you how annoying it is with ickheads like Intruder trolling tdkr pages watevr man no beef
Tkiller - 11/20/2011, 4:40 AM
> Now, if you ask me about TASM...I'm not that sure, but still going.
jazzman - 11/20/2011, 4:44 AM
@heisei24

i will care this movie needs to be good to open doors for other lesser known characters to be on the big screen
heisei24 - 11/20/2011, 5:06 AM
can't we just love both movies? And yeah,I really hope Avengers will success so that a JL movie is in work
Jolt17 - 11/20/2011, 5:10 AM
Not that surprising indeed, but I find myself feeling glad for this - Bettany's A.I. voice just sounds great. :)
Kayo - 11/20/2011, 5:59 AM
Whedon can write a good script, and if this movie turn out to be a big hit next year, then Inhumans and Guardians of the Galaxy would be on the top list to be made by Marvel Studios.
marvel72 - 11/20/2011, 6:56 AM
great news,after the avengers we'll hear him again in iron man 3. :)
sarahsatire - 11/20/2011, 7:58 AM
They should have made the role of Jarvis a real person. He could kick some butt with a vacuum.
DioFoRio - 11/20/2011, 8:24 AM
I'm sorry but BluePallando couldn't have said it better
sheebz - 11/20/2011, 9:07 AM
@ sarah lmao that would be hilarious
BooYah - 11/20/2011, 9:13 AM
@Dinoysios- lol but yet you still start your comment with "Im sorry"
DioFoRio - 11/20/2011, 10:53 AM
I'm sorry BooYah but you're mistaken
