Paul Bettany Cast as The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron

It’s been reported that Paul Bettany has been cast as the Vision in the upcoming Avengers sequel. But wait, isn’t Bettany already voicing JARVIS, Tony’s A.I. butler? What does all this mean?

Potential spoilers and speculation for Avengers 2.

The Vision in comics canon was an android created by Ultron, who then turned against its creator and became a hero. But we already know that the origin of Ultron is going to be altered in the film—Hank Pym, otherwise known as Ant Man, will not be responsible for creating Ultron. With Paul Bettany cast as the Vision, this heavily suggests that Ultron will at least have its origins in Stark technology…

But does the Vision come before or after Ultron this time around? Will it be like JARVIS troubling kid brother? Where is all this going?

Either way, it looks like Tony Stark will have some major explaining to do.
