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.
