‘Avengers 2′ Star Paul Bettany Talks (Kinda) to Jimmy Kimmel About Playing Vision
Paul Bettany is the latest Marvel star to fear the wrath of the studio, because when Jimmy Kimmel asked him about his role in ‘The Avengers 2,’ the star visibly looked around and shared his fears before opening up (just a bit) about his work as The Vision.
Bettany, who previously voiced J.A.R.V.I.S., Iron Man’s helpful A.I., is getting an upgrade in ‘The Avengers 2′ and will be taking more of a human form in portraying the superhero robot Vision.
At this point, the wording is entirely too familiar — when the stars of new Marvel properties are asked to share a bit about their various roles, nearly all of them appear to glance around for a familiar face, shrink inside themselves, and rebuff the question. They are afraid a Marvel rep is nearby — watching! always watching! — and will tackle them if they let anything slip. Really, it must be true, because it just happens so frequently.
