Paul Bettany has had a pretty sweet ride as the voice of AI system Jarvis in the Marvel films: show up in sweatpants, ask for a latte, say some science-y stuff, go home. Now there’s word that he’ll have to put in more than an hour of work as his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron has been upgraded. He’ll now have to act with his face as Joss Whedon has cast him as the Vision, an android who, in the comics, was created by the film’s central villainous android Ultron.
It’s unclear now if Vision will be a creation of Ultron or the result of a lazy Tony Stark’s attempt to make a really super weird looking robot butler. (Deadline)
