Paul Bettany Is The Vision!

By Dr. Know on February 6th, 2014

Paul Bettany’s voiceover role as JARVIS – Tony Stark’s super computer from the Iron Man movies – is expanding substantially: the sequel will see Stark’s A.I. computer evolve into the full-fledged Android known as The Vision!

The Vision was an android created by the robotic villain Ultron, who was meant to be one of Ultron’s henchmen but who instead turns against him and becomes a hero.

All of the principal cast members from the first movie are returning, while James Spader, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen are in the new roles of Ultron, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch respectively. Thomas Kretschman is also on board as Baron Strucker.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron will bring the Marvel Universe’s biggest heroes together again to face one of their biggest villains, with Marvel’s The Avengers director Joss Whedon returning to write and direct the sequel. Marvel’s The Avengers was released in 2012 and went on to earn $1.5 billion worldwide, making it the third-largest grossing movie of all time.

Production gets underway next month.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron is scheduled for May 1, 2015.
