A new piece of casting has added a significant piece of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We all know Tony Stark’s artificial intelligence system is called J.A.R.V.I.S., voiced by Paul Bettany. And by now you may now, J.A.R.V.I.S. is the basis for Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Last week ABC gave the green light to the Captain America spin-off series Agent Carter, starring Hayley Atwell. The series will effectively jump off from the Agent Carter One-Shot short film included on the Iron Man 3 blu-ray, using that short as a pilot to launch the series. ABC also renewed Agents of SHIELD, and given the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we figured the two series would be related. Now, with the release of some official art (above) and info, we know they will be tightly woven together. Read More »
