There are many mysteries surrounding the upcoming Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. We know that it will be the Avengers' second film and that the blockbuster will feature one of the team's most notorious villains. However, there are many factors left unanswered and they could be left that way until the film's release.
One of these questions is the involvement of the character Vision. Earlier this year, it was reported that the android would debut in this film and that Paul Bettany (who voices Tony Stark's A.I. Jarvis) would be playing the character. These details have led to much speculation about Vision such as does this incarnation of Vision spawn from Jarvis. While details remain to be seen there is some information on the character's film origins.
In a interview with Slash Film, director Joss Whedon revealed information about Vision, and this development will no doubt please fans. According to Whedon, Vision will be created by Ultron. As fans know, Vision was built by Ultron in the comics. The android was originally an enemy to the Avengers until Vision had a change of heart and turned on his master. Whedon discussed Vision's origins and how he wanted the character's story to play out like it does in the comics.
Before I took the first job, I said, well, I don’t know if I’m right for this or if I want it or you want me, but in the second one, the villain has to be Ultron, and he has to create the Vision, and then, that has to be Bettany. It took me three years before I could tell Paul that I’d had that conversation, but after that, I stopped. I was like, that would be cool if you have Ultron, and you have Vision and Paul played him.
Though Vision will be created by Ultron, there will likely be some differences between this incarnation of the character and his comicbook origins. Seeing that Tony Stark is the instigator in creating Ultron as opposed to Hank Pym (who is Ultron's true creator) there already changes to be had in this film; so it only makes sense that details in Vision's story will be different.
Changes in character's origins is nothing new for comicbook movies as it happens all the time. As long as the film keeps true to the root of the story, or in this case character, the changes should not be a problem; and according to these details, it seems like Vision's development will hold true to that of the comics.
While there still much we do not know about Vision's involvement in this film, we can confirm that his origins will stay true to his comicbook appearance. However, whether or not Vision will work for the film remains to be seen. We will just have to wait to find out if Vision works for The Avengers 2 when this anticipated sequel hits theaters. Needless to say, I am excited to see the robotic Avenger in action.
See Vision in [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035); arriving in theaters on May 1, 2015.
