We Have Vision! Paul Bettany Confirms Avengers 2 Role


Earlier this year, I told you there were rumors circulating about Paul Bettany playing the Vision in the upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Well, looks like those aren’t rumors anymore.

Paul BettanyBettany confirmed that he will be playing the character during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live. His thoughts:

Everything’s a double-edged sword, because I was playing Jarvis for years. 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’d go home.

Now, it turns out they’ve found me out and they want me to actually, you know, do something!

…He can do all sorts of things, 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.

So there you have it. Bettany will be playing the Vision, probably in addition to his usual role as JARVIS. But this begs the question of how Vision and Ultron are created. Will Tony Stark be the creator of Ultron, who in turn creates Vision? Will Stark be the creator of both? We’ll find out when The Avengers: Age of Ultron opens on May 1, 2015, but until then, tell us what you think in the comments!
