We Now Know How Vision Will Look in \’Age of Ultron\’


The Vision

For a long time comic book movies saw themselves above the source material. Everyone remembers the “yellow spandex” joke in the original X-Men that was used to explain why the characters we wearing black leather. But ever since the first Iron Man, which maintained the familiar red and gold colors from the comic, people have become more accepting that these are comic book movies based on, gasp, comic books.

Following the Captain America movies and The Avengers, which featured pretty accurate-to-the-comics colors for the characters, it’d be shocking if Marvel changed things up with Vision in the second movie. Then again, he is a multi-colored metal android.

In the same JoBlo report that contained today’s Star Wars news, there’s a lot about the Avengers sequel including confirmation that we’ll be seeing an accurate version of Vision in the movie:

The Vision will be 100 percent Paul Bettany with his face and body all in metallic form, very shiny with gold, red, and green (as well as the yellow cape).

As for Ultron himself:

Ultron will be more than just a helmet, with his full face being articulated, including the mouth. All movements from James Spader’s face are used to bring more personality to the villain. The suit mock-up is reminiscent of the weapon that Agent Coulson used to shoot Loki in THE AVENGERS, which was made from the parts of the defeated Destroyer in THOR. The suit is said to have a “red firelight underneath, giving him a kind of ‘Balrog’ effect from LOTR.”

As San Diego Comic Con is taking place in about a month, it’s likely we’ll get our first look at both there. It’s expected that Marvel will bring the first footage from the movie to their Hall H panel.
