One of the closest guarded secrets in Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron is the role of Vision. We know Paul Bettany is playing the character, that his playing the character is a link back to Tony Stark’s personal assistant J.A.R.V.I.S. and that Vision’s creation is somehow linked to Ultron, the artificially intelligent villain of the film. Traditionally the character has some pretty impressive powers but the extent we’ll see those play out in the film, his allegiances, origins and more, are nothing more than educated guesses at the moment.
Now, a new piece of information regarding Vision has been revealed. Bettany hinted in a new interview that he and the character are already planning to return for another Marvel movie. Read the Paul Bettany Vision quotes below. Read More »

Marvel has yet to reveal, or barely even acknowledge, the fact Paul Bettany plays Vision in Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Unfortunately for them, as they try and hold back a big, official reveal, they can’t help that the character is all over promotion, marketing and licensing tools for the film. So we’ve already seen a lot of what Bettany’s character will look like in the movie. Now, we’ve got even more images. Check out the latest Vision Avengers 2 images below, along with a new look at the Hulkbuster, Ultron and Black Widow. Beware – a few minor spoilers here. Read More »

If you’re starting to wonder if Johnny Depp is picking all of his movies based on how ridiculous they let him look, Mortdecai won’t do much to dispel that notion. Depp leads the comedy caper as “debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai,” who’s tasked with tracking down a painting something something Nazi gold. It doesn’t really matter, because the whole movie is really just Depp’s excuse to sport a fake mustache/accent combo that rivals the one in Tusk. Watch the latest Mortdecai trailer after the jump.

Very few people have seen footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron, but there has, of course, been rampant speculation about what the film entails. Even a trailer won’t give away the full picture, so we’ll wait until May of next year for all the details. A new official Age of Ultron synopsis, however, now sums up the story nicely without giving too much away. There are, however, hints about the origin of Ultron, and what seems like a confirmation that Paul Bettany‘s character, Vision, is in fact an evolved version of his previous character Jarvis. (Which we’ve all known, but hasn’t been stated officially by Marvel or Bettany.) Read More »

Below is your first real look at Vision, played by Paul Bettany, in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Like our first small look at the character, this is an artist’s depiction rather than a photo of the actor in costume. But it shows much of the detail you want to see. Red skin, green costume, yellow/white cape — all there. More to the point, the character hasn’t been made to look normal. This incarnation of Vision is immediately recognizable as the character from comic books. The only thing missing, in this art at least, is the giant collar. We can deal with that. Check out the new look at Vision in Age of Ultron after the jump.
Update: A new piece of art gives a much better look at the costume.
Update 2: That second piece of art has been pulled.

To put it mildly, Johnny Depp is not exactly at a high point in his career. He hasn’t had a solid hit since the last Pirates of the Caribbean movie, and his last three starring roles were outright flops. But on the bright side, he’ll have plenty of opportunities to redeem himself in the near future.
One of those chances arrives next February in the form of a goofy comedy. Depp plays the title character in Mortdecai, a roguish art dealer racing to recover a stolen painting that could lead to Nazi gold. The first Mortdecai trailer has just been released, and you can watch it after the jump.

Paul Bettany took the stage with the rest of the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast today during Marvel’s panel in Hall H. But we didn’t see any significant shots of the character in the footage preview, and Bettany had little to say during the panel that lets us know what to expect from Vision. So all we’ve got on the character is that concept art shot above, and that ain’t much.
Today I took part in a small roundtable interview with Bettany, and there he dropped more than a few hints about how the character behaves in the film, and what we can expect from him in the context of action scenes. The best note? One of the character’s best powers is intact. Read More »
Minor spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron below.
Tuesday, it was finally confirmed what we’d assumed for months. In Marvel Comics, Ultron is created by Hank Pym. In Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron, however, he’ll be created by Tony Stark. His original purpose? To lead an army called the Iron Legion against the bad guys, in order to give the Avengers a rest. It does not go well. As for Vision, another character forever linked to these characters and played by Paul Bettany, his origin will be more traditional. Like in the comics, in the film Vision will be created by Ultron “to show he has the power to create life, too.” Read More »
