Joss Whedon's AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON is going to be a huge movie. How big, you ask (like this is The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson)? In a conversation with Radio Times, star Paul Bettany (Vision) said it is the biggest project yet from Marvel Studios.

I’ve never been on a bigger set in my entire life than in The Avengers [Age of Ultron]...One [part] seemed to be the corner of a town, with helicopter cameras, and drone cameras flying about. I just haven’t seen anything that big, so it was like being a kid on a film set again...This is the biggest thing Marvel have ever done.

Bettany goes on to say he and the rest of the AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON cast were astounded by the excitement for the film when they were at last year's Comic-Con.

I remember, we were at Comic-con, and they showed a portion of the footage, and I was just gobsmacked. And I looked down the row and every one of the Avengers was the same. Including Samuel Jackson – and his whole modus operandi is ‘I’ve seen everything before, I’m the most chilled out, relaxed man and I’ve seen everything…’and he was as knocked out as anyone. It’s huge.

The actor also says he really enjoyed working on a big movie like AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.

It’s really nice to have a balance in all this. To go from a movie I was making where we couldn’t afford two cameras, to a movie where there’s helicopters with cameras in. It was a lot of fun.

In a different recent interview with Collider, Paul Bettany said he had to keep his Vision role in AGE OF ULTRON a secret for three years, when asked for details about the character.

I can tell you that I’ve kept it a secret for about three years. I’ve known that this was going to happen and I’m not about to give the game away right now because we’ve managed to keep it really under wraps. There are only a few images out there but it’s…it’s pretty grand.

Paul Bettany's Vision is just one of the reasons I (like most of you) can't wait to see THE AVENGERS sequel. I know Marvel is trying to hide his character, but hopefully we'll get at least a glimpse of him in action in an upcoming trailer.

Paul Bettany's MORTDECAI hits theaters today, and AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON will be released on May 1, 2015.

What I found most interesting is that they told him 3 years ago. They've been planning Bettany being Vision in the second Avengers before the 1st Avengers even released. Marvel deserves a lot of credit for putting in proper thought and planning for their properties and not rushing things. DC should take note as what they are doing seems slapped together and like they're just winging lol. On the Marvel front it does make me wonder, even though we've seen their slate up upcoming films, what

With all the different characters in this and what looks like multiple plot threads I'm thinking that this is going to be a 9 hour movie....certainly feels like one.

I really hope we don't see any footage of him in any of the trailers. Would be great to finally see what he looks like when watching the actual film for the first time.

You know I want to see him so bad, but at the same time I agree with you. I mean the fact they have kept images of him under wraps in this day and age for this long, other than the one promo art one while back, is astounding.

I really want to see an actual photo of Paul Bettany as The Vision. Let's hope his actual costume looks like the photo above.
