While the veil of secrecy has been thick surrounding the specifics of his turn as the synthezoid known as the Vision, the actor recently went on record to indicate that Marvel may have plans for his character once the dust from the sure-to-be-a-blockbuster sequel settles.
"That's the really great thing about the Marvel gig for me," Bettany told News Australia in a recent interview. "I have never known if I have had a job six months out ever in my life. And now I know that they have plans and I can be even more judicious about the stuff that I do outside of that work. I can wait for the right thing and feel really attached to it."
Bettany has been a part of the MCU from the earliest days, providing the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S., Tony Stark's A.I., though he hadn't actually watched any of the movies until landing the role of the Vision. "My research was watching all of the films," he recalled. "I realised they are so interlinked and I wanted to understand the universe I was in. So I did and it was a really amazing, fun experience."
"Avengers: Age of Ultron" arrives in theaters May 1, 2015.
