Suspicions that Tony Stark/Iron Man will be behind the creation of Ultron instead of scientist Dr. Henry Pym have been hinted at since the announcement of Ultron as the villain in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Now a source inside Marvel/Disney has leaked a crucial plot point, which could make this suspected rumor…
a fact. JARVIS, the A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) and liaison to Tony Stark and the Avengers, becomes self-aware and apparently sees humans as inferior and burdensome. When asked if JARVIS would become Ultron, the inside source had this to say:
“That’s the plan so far from what I’ve heard. Obvious, isn’t it?”
Check out the storyboards that were leaked online last week. This will give you some insight into the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” film.
The inside source was also asked if actor Paul Bettany will make an appearance or only provide the voiceover for JARVIS/Ultron, since he has loaned his vocal talents as JARVIS in the latest series of Marvel Studios’ films to date.
“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.”
Speculation is that Bettany could physically portray The Vision, an android created by Ultron, who eventually becomes a member of the Avengers and marries the Scarlet Witch. Writer/director Joss Whedon has indicated that the Scarlet Witch’s role in the film will figure heavily into the plot. So, it only makes sense that The Vision be included.
