‘Age of Ultron’ is ‘Biggest Thing Marvel Have Ever Done,’ Paul Bettany Says

For an emotionless android, The Vision sure is excited about Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Speaking with Radio Times, actor Paul Bettany — who will play the character in the Marvel sequel — gushed about the sheer scale of the film.

“I’ve never been on a bigger set on my entire life than in The Avengers [Age of Ultron],” said the actor, who’s also provided the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S. in four Marvel films to date . “One [part] seemed to be the corner of a town, with helicopter cameras, and drone cameras flying about. I just haven’t seen anything that big, so it was like being a kid on a film set again.”

Bettany added that the size of the sets was reflected in the footage shown in July at Comic-Con International, much to the delight of the assembled cast members.

“This is the biggest thing Marvel have ever done,” he said. “It was enormous. I remember, we were at Comic-Con, and they showed a portion of the footage, and I was just gobsmacked. And I looked down the row and every one of the Avengers was the same. Including Samuel Jackson – and his whole modus operandi is ‘I’ve seen everything before, I’m the most chilled out, relaxed man and I’ve seen everything … ’and he was as knocked out as anyone. It’s huge.”

Directed by Joss Whedon, Avengers: Age of Ultron also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgård, James Spader and Samuel L. Jackson. It opens May 1.
