Rumor: Which Iron Man actor may be the voice of Ultron?

Even though this is a rumor at this point, we figured it was best to throw some spoiler warnings up first in case people want to be potentially surprised. You might have guessed that this was the road that Joss Whedon would go down for AVENGERS: THE AGE OF ULTRON especially if you saw a particular storyboard idea that got scrapped from the first film. Though this is a rumor I think that this point it's perfectly logical that this could happen. So now that I've piqued your curiosity it's time to decide whether you want to proceed or not.

Spoilers below the photo of Ultron.

According to the site, Unleash the Fanboy, they have a Disney source who claims that Paul Bettany will voice Ultron. Wait…but he voices J.A.R.V.I.S.? Yeah. The animatic I mentioned below only adds to that possibility.

We see a darker side of J.A.R.V.I.S., and if Tony Stark has a hand in creating Ultron then it would make sense that he uses the same voice. In the teaser seen at Comic Con this year, fans got to see an animatic teaser that showed what seemed like a smashed up suit but was actually revealed as the construction of Ultron's head.

When the site asked if Bettany would be back as more than a voice over and actually get into the physical aspect this is what was said:

"He’s returning, but I’m not sure if they’re doing motion capture with him, or if they’ll use someone else. Since he’s only done voiceovers, the contract is new."

Fair enough. I think that even though this is a rumor it's definitely plausible. Would this work for you? Or did you have something else in mind?
