Ever since Agent Coulson’s murder and resurrection the Avengers and Agents of SHIELD, many have wondered if Clark Gregg would play the Vision in an upcoming Marvel movie. Not only is he NOT playing the Vision, but another actor from the Marvel movie universe is!
According to Variety, Paul Bettany will play the Vision in Marvel’s Avengers: The Age of Ultron movie. If Bettany’s name sounds familiar, it should – he plays the voice of Jarvis. This gives more credence to the theory that Tony Stark will be the person who ends up creating Ultron (through a corrupt Jarvis A.I.).
Production starts next month, with director Joss Whedon and cast members like Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans. 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.
Very interesting casting news, and it wouldn’t surprise me if we hear of at least one more big casting announcement before Monday rolls around.
