Avengers: Age of Ultron - Paul Bettany confirms role

6 hours ago

Paul Bettany has confirmed his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The Transcendence actor will play the Vision in Joss Whedon's upcoming Marvel Studios sequel.

Bettany revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that the rumours that he would graduate from Iron Man's AI butler Jarvis to the iconic Avenger were correct.

"He can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do, because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me," he said.

Bettany has lent his voice to the three Iron Man films and The Avengers.

"Everything's a double-edged sword, because I was playing Jarvis for years," he continued. "My job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, they would give me a huge bag of cash and then I'd go home. »

Artax, Silver, Mister Ed, Joey, more: 11 Greatest fictional horses

7 hours ago

We were saddened by the news that Gandalf's faithful grey horse Shadowfax - real name Blanco - had died after suffering from an illness last week.

So we thought we'd take the opportunity to stop mourning and instead celebrate Shadowfax and ten other great fictional horses on TV and the silver screen below:

1. Silver

"Hi-Yo Silver! Away!" were the trademark commands of the Lone Ranger to Silver, the magnificent fictional white stallion from the iconic Us radio show and TV series.

A chestnut mare called Dusty was Silver's original predecessor, which is revealed in the 1938 episode The Legend of Silver. When the Lone Ranger saves Silver's life from a savage buffalo, Silver gives up living in the wild, wild west to instead carry the masked former Texas Ranger as his loyal equestrian companion.

2. Seabiscuit

"Let's go, Pops!" Seabiscuit was a real racehorse during the Great Depression in the Us who »
