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.
