/avengers-age-of-ultron-paul-bettany-is-vision/Back in February, it was announced that the voice of Tony Stark's personal A.I. system J.A.R.V.I.S. in the Iron Man movies and Marvel's The Avengers, Paul Bettany, would be taking on the role of Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The actor recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he talked a bit about the challenges of accepting the role. While he couldn't delve too deep into Vision's story or powers, he did hint that it is quite a change going from a voice actor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to someone who is needed on set.
"Oh I can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me...It's very exciting for me, but everything is a double edged sword, right? Because I was playing J.A.R.V.I.S. for years and my job was i would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, and then they would give me huge bag of cash and then I'd go home. Now it turns out they've found me out and they want me to actually do something!"
Vision emerged in the Marvel comics back in the 1960s, an android created by Ultron to be used as a weapon against the Avengers. Vision ultimately turns the table against his creator, and becomes a member of the Avengers, marrying Scarlet Witch, who is being played by Elizabeth Olsen in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Vision's powers include the ability to fire radiation beams and he can use a hologram force that makes him invisible.
How these super powers will be brought to the screen has yet to be seen. You can watch the interview in the following embed.
