Paul Bettany is saying that Marvel are so confident that everyone will love The Vision that they have him booked for another Marvel movie already…
Chatting with New Australia, that actor has been getting rather chatty about the job security and the future of the character: “That’s the really great thing about the Marvel gig for mem” says the actor, “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.”
It would be safe to assume that The Vision will appear in Captain America: Civil War in some capacity and the time line of “six months” would certainly imply that.
However, it’s easy to forget that Bettany is almost as much a mainstay in the MCU as Downey Jnr, having started off as Tony Stark’s A.I. Servant, JARVIS, a role which he said he took for some easy VO money. However, he had to step up to the plate when it came to playing The Vision: “I did a lot of research — and my research was watching all of the films.
“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. 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.”
Avengers: Age of Ultron opens 1 May 2014.
