OK, so I wasn’t sure if I was going to post this because it’s not officially confirmed, and it was first reported by the Daily Mail (aka, the Daily Fail), but enough people are taking it seriously that it looks like it might be legit (though assume for now it’s still rumor). According to reports, Paul Bettany will be playing a character other than Tony Stark’s A.I. JARVIS in the upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron. This was actually a rumor that was floated around before, but there seems to be more concrete evidence supporting the idea now.

Bettany reportedly will be playing the Vision, an intelligent android created by Ultron. His loyalties change over the course of the comics, eventually joining the Avengers and marrying the Scarlet Witch. Since Ultron and Scarlet Witch will be introduced in Avengers 2, the addition of Vision sounds like it fits. But this has not been officially confirmed yet, so hold off on your theories until we get more concrete info.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be released in theaters May 1, 2015. Do you hope Vision will be in it? Sound off in the comments!
