Paul Bettany is Playing the Vision!

It looks like Paul Bettany might very well have an expanded presence in Joss Whedon’s upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. England’s The Daily Mail first reported and then Variety quickly confirmed that the actor will play android team member The Vision in the May 1, 2015 release.

Bettany is no stranger to Marvel Studios films. He has provided the voice of Tony Stark’s computer system, J.A.R.V.I.S. in all three Iron Man films as well as the original Marvel’s The Avengers. It seems likely that, as has long been speculated by fans, the sequel will see Stark’s program evolve into a fully-fledged A.I. android. Bettany was reportedly spotted at Shepperton Studios for a costume test.

The Vision has been a major part of the team since his debut in “The Avengers” #57 all the way back in 1968. In the comics, the character falls in love with and marries Scarlet Witch, who will be played in the sequel by Elizabeth Olsen.

In addition to quite a few returning Avengers, Age of Ultron will also feature James Spader as the title villain, Thomas Kretschmann as Baron Strucker and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Scarlet Witch’s brother, Quicksilver.
