Marvel decided to give fans the final trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron today, after initially announcing that it would debut during the series premiere of American Crime tomorrow night. Included in this slew of new footage was our first official look at Vision, played by Paul Bettany. Granted, it was just a brief glimpse of the character, but at least we finally get to see him.
Vision has been teased several times over the past few months with promo artwork and other materials, but we still don't know exactly how he fits into the Avengers: Age of Ultron story. There is speculation that he was created by Ultron (James Spader), like he was in the comics, but it's also possible that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) created him, since they are the ones who brought Ultron himself to life. Hopefully we'll learn more about Vision as we get closer to the May 1 release date.
