While promoting his directorial debut with Collider, Paul Bettany spoke at length about reprising his role as the Vision from Avengers: Age of Ultron in the highly anticipated Captain America: Civil War. Bettany, who until Ultron only provided voice work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Iron Man’s AI, ‘JARVIS’, says the script for Civil War is “fantastic.”
The leaked promotional artwork (seen above) for Civil War showed Vision lining up with Iron Man’s team. However, it seems the character will delve into the changing dynamics of allegiances, loyalty, and the role logic plays in all of this.
Bettany then discussed the differences between working with brothers Joe & Anthony Russo, who are directing Civil War versus Avengers: Age of Ultron’s director Joss Whedon.
Bettany also talked about the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Vision, and his use in Avengers: Age of Ultron was one of the highlights of that film for me. I can’t wait to see what Civil War has in store for us regarding the Vision. What do you think of Bettany’s comments?
Directed by Joe & Anthony Russo, and featuring a massive cast starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Emily VanCamp, Daniel Brühl, Frank Grillo, William Hurt, and Martin Freeman, Captain America: Civil War is set for release on May 6th, 2016.
So, who’s side are you on?
