Fresh off yesterday's big news that Paul Bettany is portraying Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron, we have possible new details on the character's costume. Our report from yesterday revealed that the actor was spotted at London's Shepperton Studios, where he met with director Joss Whedon and conducted tests with the makeup department, who were using a number of different powders to try and replicate Vison's chalky-white skin. Today's report from Comic Book Therapy reveals that Marvel may implement a mask similar to Tony Stark's Iron Man helmet, although they have not decided whether or not they want to rework the mask, or incorporate the actor's own face.
Here's what the site's unidentified source had to say, who has seen both the costume and concept art at Shepperton Studios, revealing that the costume will feature the iconic green and yellow colors from the comic book.
"It has a helmet akin to the Iron Man armor, but it's designed more like a face than a smooth Stark helmet. The iconic yellow and green are present in the design, but it's more metallic shades than bright 'comic book colors.' They said it reminds them somewhat of the T-100 from Terminator 2: Judgment Day but it's not as shiny. The yellow metal "liquid" bits seem to light up. This may or may not happen since there are two designs for that section. One lights up the other doesn't. That's the only difference. The cape is present, but they say it appears to only 'pop out' when in flight mode. The cap sports some similar shades of yellow as the body. The 'neck pieces' are the same yellow but they seem to shift positions from 'standing' (for lack of a better word) to 'flight mode.'"
Marvel executives and director Joss Whedon were mulling over the costume possibilities earlier this week, and it is believed that they don't want Vision to come off looking like a colorful version of Iron Man.
Of course, nothing has been confirmed at this time, but with production starting in London soon, hopefully we'll hear more about Vision's look.
