It’s official. There’s nothing left to reveal about Avengers: Age of Ultron until you sit yourself down in a theater and watch the movie for yourself (gladly!). Finally, the last character poster for what is sure to be this summer’s biggest hit has finally hit the web; Vision, played by Paul Bettany.
Vision is neither a human nor alien. He’s an android that has been introduced to Marvel’s comic book universe, not once but twice. The first version was in 1940 with the second version coming much later in 1968. The second being the version that most people identify with as the look that Joss Whedon’s Avengers sequel is calling back to and the version Stan Lee co-created. I’m just glad they decided to keep that sweet V-neck collar because a superhero has to have style every now and again. One of the more interesting parts of Vision’s background is Ultron actually created Vision, then calling him Synthezoid, so he could kill the one who created Ultron, Dr. Henry Pym (aka Ant-Man). That Marvel universe is one wacky beast.
Entertainment Weekly also put out a snazzy cover showing off Vision as well. They always get the best images. Check out that one below.
I’d like to see Thor and Vision create some sort of separate alliance only because they’re the two with capes, feeling like the outcasts they are. Regardless, if you haven’t realized yet, this movie should be a lot of fun.
