Paul Bettany is going from voicing Jarvis to playing the Vision in The Avengers 2, and now says it’s the “biggest thing that Marvel have ever done.”
While speaking with the Radio Times, Bettany offered his take on being involved in the movie.
“I’ve never been on a bigger set on my entire life than [Age of Ultron],” Bettany said. “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.”
Paul Bettany recounts being a part of the big Hall H announcement for Avengers 2 at this past Summer’s Comic-Con, and even offers that Samuel L. Jackson was impressed.
“This is the biggest thing Marvel have ever done,” Bettany continued. “It was enormous. 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.”
