Paul Bettany has joined the cast of THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON alongside Robert Downey Jr., James Spader, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson to name a few. He was believed to reprise his role as Jarvis, a role he’s voiced since “Iron Man.” This is true but apparently his role is finally getting more of a jolt as he’ll be playing The Vision, a cybernetic member of the team in the comics. Who knows how it’ll turn out in the cinematic universe. I’m guessing/hoping it’ll turn out awesome.
Joss Whedon will direct from his own script. Kevin Feige will produce.
Bettany was last heard in “Iron Man 3” and will next appear in “Transcendence.”
He is repped by UTA.
