Hey guys, Chris “the Scoop” Salce here. I just finished doing a very interesting phone interview with Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s prosthetic supervisor, Nik Williams. I would like to share with you guys a little part of the interview. I asked Williams about why the traditional colors of The Vision were changed for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and here’s what Williams had to say:
“Basically if you look through the magazines, the Vision changes color all over the place. In some of them he’s yellow. I don’t know if the color was ever that set. He was that sort of red color but actually getting that correct hue or the final color, we didn’t want him to look too red. If he’s too red, he starts looking a bit comical. Trying to get the color that makes it look as action as hard as it can without looking silly.”
I actually don’t mind the color change. I thought the Vision looked great and he was my favorite part of the film.
Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks for our coverage on the digital and blu-ray releases for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.We will have the full interview with Nik Williams where he gives us even more insight into creating the Vision including concept and first looks. Also stay tuned for an interview with legendary stunt coordinator Greg Powell, who talks everything from Avengers to Mission Impossible.
