After voicing Tony Stark’s Jarvis, Paul Bettany seems to find his place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as newborn synthezoid Vision. And as he carries the memories of Wanda’s passed away love, Bettany recently revealed the future of Vision on the MCU. So from what we found out, Marvel intends to keep Vision for much longer. But we have to warn you that there are spoilers on the way.
WandaVision‘s cast and crew answered questions about the series’ highly anticipated final last week. Paul Bettany said he loves Vision so he’d be up for playing him forever as he was asked if he’d be up or not. And now that WandaVision made its final, he had more to say and reveal, it turns up.
In WandaVision‘s final episode, Wanda has rebuilt White Vision from Vision’s old body. As we know, Vision was normally able to restore his memories, but the lack of Mind Stone along with added Chaos Magic and tragic memories makes things much harder it seems. So, the existence of Paul Bettany‘s Vision seemed unknown especially when Wanda had brought down the Hex so both Visions disappeared.
So how will be the future of WandaVision then?
We possibly won’t be seeing another WandaVision season, so Vision’s future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe became one of the biggest questions especially after the final of the series. So, Paul Bettany had struggled a little and thought before he talked about where his character might go next as well.
“Well, fuck. How do I do this without spoilers? I guess we’ve seen what happens to Wanda when love is taken away from her. And I wonder what that would look like with Vision.
I mean, that’s the thing, right? I’ve never had a loved one to lose… I don’t know what grief is because I’ve never had a loved one to lose. There is so much to get into with him because it’s been ten minutes here, ten minutes there, in the movies. Now we’re sort of just starting to sort of peel back some stuff.”
Playing a double version role
So apparently playing a double version of Vision comes a little complicated to Paul Bettany than it seems first. Although the talented actor manages both of them very well, he also would be pleased more likely to focus his attention on one of them in the future, we understand. Bettany explains this situation of the double Vision scenario with a joke.
“I was super intimidated by myself. I would come in one day and I would be Vision or The Vision. Then Adam, my stunt guy, would play Vision. And he learned all of the dialogue and for both parts. He was brilliant. We would play the scene like that. And then the next day, he would come in. And he would get The Vision. Then I would get Vision. And then we would play the scene like that and the same to the fights so that they could always have my bella faccia on camera, at some point. It was more confusing than I had sort of allotted. It used up all of my brain.”
So WandaVision might be over, but The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is still ahead of us to land on March 19, 2021. And also much more is currently happening on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, for sure. You might also want to take a look at Marvel’s previous announcement for another upcoming series, Assembled which will be airing on Disney+.
So stay tuned as we gather more news for what’s waiting for all of us on the MCU.
