Paul Bettany to play the Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron

See also

Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron seems to be growing at an exponential rate. Marvel Comics and Disney have just announced (via Variety and numerous other news outlets) that the fan-favorite role of the Vision will be played by actor Paul (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, A Beautiful Mind) Bettany. This should come as no surprise to fans of the billion-dollar franchise, seeing as Bettany has provided the voice for Tony Stark's artificial intelligence butler/friend hybrid since 2008's Iron Man, the first film of the series.

It is only a logical step to give the actor his due and provide him with a larger role for a sequel that boasts a villain (also with origins tied to artificial intelligence) and a cast larger and more exciting than 2012's blockbuster hit, The Avengers.

The film is set for a May 1, 2015 release. Bettany joins Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders, Don Cheadle, James Spader, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Thomas Kretschmann, and Samuel L. Jackson.
