"Oh, [he] can do all sorts of things," said Paul Bettany on Jimmy Kimmel Live! of the Vision's powers in Avengers: Age of Ultron. "But I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me." After commenting that Marvel "pick and choose" powers and abilities from the comics, Bettany went on to discuss going from to just lending his voice to J.A.R.V.I.S. to now physically playing a character. "It's very exciting for me, but everything's a double-edged sword because I was playing JARVIS for years," he said. "My job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, they would give me a huge bag of cash, and then I would go home. Now, it turns out they've found me out and they want me to actually, ya know, do something. It's not right," joked the actor. What do you think? 



The Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015.

Finally, confirmation :)

As much as I love J.A.R.V.I.S. in the Iron Man movies, they should have went with an Alfred-style inspirational character for Tony Stark and used Edwin Jarvis.

So will it be a physical appearance with make up and etc or will everything be motion capture? He's going to have to shave his head too. lol

Here's a wacky theory. What if they took the name literally, and "Vision" actually allowed others to get glimpse into their pasts. Might explain why he would be in a WWII setting along with Cap at all.

Other question is will his voice be digitized when he's Vision or will he still walk around sounding like Jarvis? lol

the vision is coming,i can't wait to see him.
TheAbaryMan369 - 4/13/2014, 4:08 PM
Perhaps that is what Vision will be like in the MCU.

@JordanKing First thing that came to my mind when I was putting that article together. Don't know how faithful or unfaithful that would be to the comics though.

JARVIS becoming Vision is fine... But that'd mean he'd no longer serve Tony.

@TheBlackNerd

It will probably be a mix of CG and make-up

@JordanKing

I'm really happy he's playing Vision.
Visually he has the right look and his voice is so damn sexy.

He's hit or miss, but this role he should nail.

@ALegendaryPanda and @MrBlackJack

Ohhh ok, yeah that would make total sense. It doesn't really take all of that Motion Cap for Hulk for Vision when he's walking around. I think they said he'll appear in his original white form too? Should be great seeing him walk through walls and etc. They nailed the character in A:EMH.

This is his best performance, so far.
