“Avengers: Age of Ultron” may have seen the birth of the Vision, but “Captain America: Civil War” undertook the task of making him more human. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, star Paul Bettany discussed Vision’s path to becoming human over the course of the film as well as the character’s relationship with Scarlet Witch.
“I think he has a real connection with Scarlet Witch,” he shared. “They both have these new burgeoning powers that they don’t understand, and they don’t know how powerful they are, and that must be kind of scary. And so I think he’s worried that they’re both dangerous. So he feels this real connection with her. And she’s a bit of a depressive at the moment so he’s just trying to cook for her.”
“You see him in the first movie, he’s born. He’s omnipotent, but he’s incredibly naÃ¯ve,” he continued. “And in this movie he’s kind of beginning to take a more paternal role in the superhero family, and he’s growing at an exponential rate, and by the end of the movie he has a real emotion and real human reaction and he makes first mistake that he’s ever made.”
He also delved into the Vision’s big moment during the airport battle, where he targeted Falcon, missed and accidentally hit War Machine, leading the character’s paralysis — all because he was concerned over Scarlet Witch’s welfare. “What happened there is that his judgment was clouded there by real love and affection,” Bettany explained. “And he responded in a quick and thoughtless way…. I really love that the moral compass of the movie is this synthetic person who’s trying to figure out what it means to be human. It’s a neat idea, you know?”
