Paul Bettany is The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron

Following the reveal that Ultron would be the villain in the second Avengers film, many have wondered if and when the villainous machine's heroic creation, the Vision, would come to the big screen. Although speculation has gone so far as assuming that Agent Coulson would become the AI Avenger, it was confirmed today that Paul Bettany, who voiced J.A.R.V.I.S. in all three Iron Man films, will play the role in Avengers 2: Age of Ultron.

While it is certainly exciting to see the Vision joining the lineup, I think the bigger story here is the level of storytelling Marvel Studios is now capable of. While DC is still struggling to start a franchise, Marvel's cinematic universe has reached the point where it can begin developing heroes within franchises and moving them around. The sense of consequence that comes with these films is increased exponentially now that the actions of a minor character in one film can snowball into something bigger in another film. While several ideas floated around for both J.A.R.V.I.S. and the Vision, I think this one is absolutely the best move on Marvel's part and certainly sets the Marvel brand apart from other franchises.

Avengers 2: Age of Ultron is slated to hit theatres May 1, 2015, but is still adding characters to its roster. What do you think of the addition of Bettany as the Vision? Would you have preferred someone else? Let us know in the comments section below and stay tuned to for more Marvel movie news.
