Potential details on Vision's costume in The Avengers: Age of Ultron
Yesterday we learned that Paul Bettany would be transitioning to the larger role of Vision in THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, a decision the majority of you liked. Whether this means that Tony Stark will create Vision to combat Ultron and transplant J.A.R.V.I.S. into the robot remains to be seen (but seems logical, doesn't it?). For now, we are given more questions that need answers regarding Joss Whedon's anticipated sequel.
Comic Book Therapy claims to have some inside knowledge of what Vision will look like when THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON hits. Their source claims that Paul Bettany has been traveling between filming MORTDECAI alongside Johnny Depp, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn, and Gwyneth Paltrow, to Shepperton Studios in England. The source dropped this info about the costume.
It has a helmet akin to the Iron Man armor, but it’s designed more like a face than a smooth Stark helmet. The iconic yellow and green are present in the design, but it’s more metallic shades than bright ‘comic book colors.’ They said it reminds them somewhat of the T-1000 from Terminator 2 but it’s not as shiny. The yellow metal “liquid” bits seem to light up. This may or may not happen since there are two designs for that section. One lights up the other doesn’t. That’s the only difference. The cape is present, but they say it appears to only “pop out” when in flight mode. The cap sports some similar shades of yellow as the body. The “neck pieces” are the same yellow but they seem to shift positions from “standing” (for lack of a better word) to “flight mode.”
That sounds pretty damn cool to me. The fact that they are going for something similar to the comic book but also distinct makes me excited to also learn how Ultron will be designed for the film. I always liked the way Silver Surfer looked in the FANTASTIC FOUR sequel, so if this looks like that but improved, I am sold.
The source also claims that Whedon has been spotted there working with the actors as they film some scenes for the movie, including Jeremy Renner. We have long been unsure if Hawkeye was going to figure into the sequel but there is more confirmation.
THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON opens on May 1, 2015.
