Paul Bettany Says Working On THE AVENGERS Is The Best Job He's Ever Had

The wide-ranging thespian loves his role as J.A.R.V.I.S. just don't ask him to reveal any details on The Avengers doesn't know any.


While discussing his new film Margin Call, Bettany of course fielded the inevitable Avengers questions. Only problem is, he doesn't know anything...

QUESTION: How’s The Avengers going?
Bettany: I have no input with that other than spending half an hour sitting in a studio doing the voice-over. It’s the best job I’ve ever had. I say the lines and they pay me money. I forgot I was in Iron Man. Someone said: ‘I loved you in Iron Man’. I said: ‘You’ve got me mixed up with someone else.’ I forgot I did the voice because it was only 30min in a recording studio laughing my arse off. I’ve got no idea what’s happening with The Avengers. They work out what bits need explaining with a voice-over and then give it to me.

QUESTION: Were you into superheroes as a child?
Bettany: No. It was Dan Dare and The Eagle, which felt Victorian. It wasn’t my thing. I liked the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films. I was dyslexic so wasn’t reading as a child and fell through every educational crack there is to fall through. Books happened later for me. I was your average bullied kid sitting in his room plotting revenge.
