Paul Bettany Dishes The Vision & Seeking to “Understand the Universe”

by at . Comments

Although he has yet to be seen in the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, we know that Paul Bettany is The Vision. Bettany is talking about the superhero character and how he dove into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a true neophyte. Yup, he hadn’t seen many of the films and found them a true joy.

“I did a lot of research and my research was watching all of the films. I realized they are so interlinked and I wanted to understand the universe I was in. So I did and it was a really amazing, fun experience,” Bettany told News Australia.

Bettany is JARVIS in the Iron Man movies, but all of his work on those Tony Stark-centered films involved him being isolated in a recording booth. So, you can imagine his joy at being able to be on a set with Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“Everybody made me feel really at home. They are really funny people and really creative. I have never seen sets that big in my whole career. I have never seen set pieces like it. We were in a set that felt like a town!”

So, The Vision is in The Avengers sequel, but could we see him in Captain America: Civil War and beyond? Odds are yes, but Bettany himself has his own theories.

Well, having a long-term contract certainly makes one think that they have a secured gig for years to come!

“That’s the really great thing about the Marvel gig for me. I have never known if I have had a job six months out ever in my life. And now I know that they have plans and I can be even more judicious about the stuff that I do outside of that work,” he said.

“I can wait for the right thing and feel really attached to it.”
