He might be best known as the charming chap who voices Tony Stark’s unsettlingly sentient AI Jarvis, but it looks as though Paul Bettany may end up double dipping come AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON if the reports of his playing The Vision pan out.
Though there is no official confirmation just yet, The Daily Mail reported (stick with us here) that Bettany had been spotted around Shepperton Studios this week for a meeting with director and pop culture chieftain Joss Whedon.
In the soul-destroyingly dense and convoluted Marvel universe, The Vision is an android created by soon-to-be cinematic big-bad Ultron to destroy all of hero-kind… except (minor spoiler) he has a change of consciousness or whatever it is Androids can actually have and turns to the sunny life of good. Time will tell how/if this plays out in the film and whether The Vision’s fabulous colour scheme will stay put (second spoiler: it won’t).
Bettany can next be seen starring in cinematographer-turned-director Wally Pfister’s directorial debut TRANSCENDENCE.
