Paul Bettany Teases Future Plans For 'The Vision' After AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
It's no biggie to know that actors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have multi-picture deals, but Paul Bettany has implied he knows exactly what's next for his newfound Age of Ultron role as the Vision.
During a recent interview for his role in Mortdecai, Paul Bettany talked a bit about playing the Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and implied that he knows what's next for the android character. "That's the really great thing about the Marvel gig for me," said the English actor of signing the studio's mandatory multi-picture contract. "I have never known if I have had a job six months out ever in my life. And now I know that they have plans and I can be even more judicious about the stuff that I do outside of that work. I can wait for the right thing and feel really attached to it." Bettany then revealed that he hadn't seen any of the past Marvel Cinematic Universe movies prior to knowing he'd be playing the Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron. "I did a lot of research — and my research was watching all of the films," he said, laughing. "I realised they are so interlinked and I wanted to understand the universe I was in. So I did and it was a really amazing, fun experience — especially going from my tiny, 20-day movie with no money and no trailers to this behemoth film was just great." He continued, "Everybody made me feel really at home and I have no bad stories — they are really funny people and really creative. I have never seen sets that big in my whole career. I have never seen set pieces like it — we were in a set that felt like a town."
Though we've yet to get an official look at Paul Bettany as the Vision, who is created by Ultron in The Avengers sequel, toys and merchandise have been marketing the android as a new Avenger. Therefore, it's not at all surprising to know that Marvel Studios has more in store for him. It's also very likely that Bettany is referring to the two-part Avengers: Infinity War movies as his next gig(s). However, could he maybe appear in Captain America: Civil War beforehand? What do you think?
