According to England's Daily Mail and Screen Rant, Paul Bettany who has been the voice of Tony Stark's Artificially Intelligent butler J.A.R.V.I.S will become the intelligent android The Vision in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron"
There has already been talk that Tony Stark will be the creator of Ultron instead of Hank Pym alias Ant-Man as in the Marvel Comics. Now there is speculation that Iron Man will not only create the Avengers nemesis but their newest ally as well. Or will that be Ultron as in the comics? Who better though to replace Iron Man in The Avengers, if he is killed off as rumored, than his own creation?
The Daily Mail has reported that Bettany was spotted at the film's production offices to meet with make up artists so they could test "various powders and potions on Bettany's pale skin to bring about the Vision's chalk-white complexion" So I'm guessing Joss Whedon won't have him with his green and red outfit. I'm glad that JARVIS won't evolve into Ultron. I do wonder if they are going to be like an A.I. split personality or good and evil twins both spawned from the same Stark experiment gone awry. It would make more sense if they followed the original story line a little and have Ultron take J.A.R.V.I.S. over. I am looking forward to James Spader's take on Ultron. He's always a better bad guy than good and what better way to show that evil genius!
I'm also curious if they will they have Elizabeth Olsen's "messed up" Scarlet Witch as The Vision's love interest. What are your theories?
