With the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Marvel cinematic universe introduced two of Marvel comic book universe’s most iconic characters: Ultron, a genocidal android who just won’t die; and The Vision, a benevolent android who possesses more humanity than the humans he protects. The characters first appeared in the pages of The Avengers during a now legendary run by writer Roy Thomas and artist John Buscema in 1968. With his Silver Age characters now appearing on the silver screen almost 50 years later, Thomas talked about his creations in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. (more…)
You’ve seen him in a few movie posters. He was even teased in one of the films latest trailers. Now a new clip from Marvel’s Age of Ultron gives us The Vision is all his glory.
Actor Paul Bettany (A Beautiful Mind) was on BBC’s The One Show discussing his role in Avengers: Age Of Ultron and he brought with him the first clip featuring the enigmatic humanoid.
If you want to go into the film having the Visions reveal be a surprise, then you may want to avoid watching this. But, just like a drug addict who fell off the wagon (metaphorically) you know you just can’t help yourself. (more…)
Of all the reveals concerning the main cast of the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron (just three more weeks!), the reveal of Vision is the most recent. The android character has been a part of the Avengers in comic book form for decades, so to nerds of a certain persuasion this is going to be a pretty big addition to the repertoire of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now you may recall that last month a character poster was released for everyone in the movie, up to and including Ultron, but Vision was suspiciously absent. But now that he’s been shown in full courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, Vision can take center stage in his own piece of promo. (more…)
It is no secret that Vin Diesel likes teasing his fans with potential future film roles via social media. Thusly, ever since Guardians of the Galaxy went into pre-production, Diesel was constantly dropping hints that he was having meetings with Marvel. This led to numerous websites, blogs, and fans speculating as to which character he could possibly be in discussions to play within the Marvel Universe – and in particular, Guardians of the Galaxy, with the role eventually turning out to be Rocket Racoon’s partner in crime Groot.

Promo art for Avengers: Age of Ultron has debuted online featuring a good clear look at The Vision. The promo art surfaced after initially appearing at an International Disney event, and an instagram user (via CBM) managed to snap up a picture of the art work. One thing that can be said about The Age of Ultron is that there are plenty of new characters being introduced in the second installment of the franchise. We now have Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as the focus of today – The Vision (played by Paul Bettany). So who exactly is The Vision? What are his abilities? Has he been altered in anyway during the transition from comic book to the movie? (more…)
With all of the buzz around the Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Ultron appearing in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, it might be easy to forget that the Vision, a fan favorite character from the Avengers comic books with deep ties to the film’s maniacal robot adversary, is also making his silver screen debut in director Joss Whedon’s sequel. That’s a shame because, as all of the concept art suggests, the Vision’s big-screen appearance looks to be stunning. However, if you watched Marvel: 75 Years, From Pulp to Pop! last night on ABC, eagle-eyed viewers caught a fleeting glimpse of the Avengers’ favorite synthezoid. (more…)
The shippers for Vin Diesel playing the Vision in Marvel‘s future blockbuster Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron can now relax because Paul Bettany has been cast in the role. Formerly the voice of Iron Man’s automated sidiekick J.A.R.V.I.S., Bettany will get a chance to flex his muscles (or lack thereof) in green and yellow spandex. The true details of Tony Stark’s ace becoming too self-aware are sparse, but in the comics, the Vision was created by the psychotic Ultron. But with no Hank Pym around to invent the crazy robot, we’re all blaming Stark, which leads to Ultron creating Vision anyway. This really sounds confusing. Good thing our friends at Super Hero Hype sat down with Mr. Bettany to make some sense of all this! (more…)
We got the news yesterday night that Paul Bettany, the voice of Iron Man’s AI J.A.R.V.I.S., would be getting a much bigger role in The Avengers‘ sequel as The Vision. While we don’t know just how The Vision fits into all of the Age of Ultron madness, we do have a description of what his costume could possibly look like when he does show up. (more…)
An interesting new fan theory seems to think it’s possible.
Buckle up, friends–this one’s gonna be a doozy!
(Remember–this is JUST a theory. It’s a fascinating notion, but not the words of anyone connected to Marvel or the Avengers films) (more…)
