What many have suspected for a while has finally come to pass: Paul Bettany — perhaps best known as the voice od J.A.R.V.I.S. in the Iron Man movies or as Mr. Jennifer Connelly — will play the Vision in next year’s Avengers: The Age of Ultron, according to Variety.
Obviously Bettany’s voice will be easily recognizable to viewers, so writer/director Joss Whedon will have to come up with some way to link J.A.R.V.I.S. and Vision. In the comics, Vision was a synthetic being created by Ultron to destroy the Avengers, but he ended up turning on his creator and joining up with the good guys. Eventually he married the Scarlet Witch — who will appear in A:AoU, played by Elizabeth Olsen.
