With only a week to go until Avengers: Age of Ultron releases in theaters stateside, promotion and news for the movie is starting to get a little more revealing. Another character from Avengers 2 has confirmed they will appear in Captain America: Civil War, and Robert Downey Jr. recently sat down with a UK reporter to talk about Iron Man’s character flaws in the new sequel.
But there’s still one person we haven’t heard much about, and that’s Vision. The purple android played by Paul Bettany was officially revealed two weeks ago in magazine covers and a poster, but details about his creation have been a little sketchy. Now as Bettany makes his rounds to promote Avengers 2, a new clip above from BBC’s The One Show finally reveals just how the superhero is born.
Vision is reportedly created by Ultron in the movie to fight The Avengers, even though old promotional art from a few months ago said he was programmed by Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. Though both facts may be true since Bettany disclosed in the TV interview that there is indeed a connection between JARVIS and Vision:
“The flipside of that bad guy, Ultron, is Vision. They’re sort of two sides of the same coin, really. There is a link between JARVIS, who I used to play and still play in this movie, and the Vision, but I’m not allowed to say what it is.”
We don’t get to see too much of Vision’s powers in the new clip, aside from his flying ability and obvious strength and grace. Nor do we get to see just how Vision comes to be or how Thor gets caught in the android’s crossfire. One thing is clear, though, neither Vision nor the rest of the Avengers know what to make of this new development. And Thor’s reaction to no longer being the most powerful person around is priceless. Hopefully, we’ll get to see more of Vision in Marvel movies to come.
