Paul Bettany's Vision, at first glance, is going to look like a deer-in-the-headlights badass. "The Vision was fun, I loved playing him. You get to see him born on screen," he said when interviewed on The One Show this week. "He's supremely powerful, and omnipotent, and yet totally naïve in experiencing the world as it comes, and wondering what his purpose is in the world and whether he's going to be a force for good or evil." He also shared a clip with the BBC show, finally giving us a better idea of what his synthezoid character will be like in action. In an interview with Yahoo UK, Bettany added that the Vision will return for future Marvel movies — though a solo film seems unlikely ... for now. »

While appearing on BBC One’s The One Show, Bettany discussed the Avengers fan frenzy at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, unveiled the scene during which his character is born in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and also confirmed that there is a connection between Jarvis and Vision: “The flip side of that bad guy, Ultron, is Vision. They’re sort of two sides of the same coin, really. There is a link between Jarvis, who I used to play and still play in this movie, and the Vision, but I’m not allowed to say what it is. »

The BBC ended up paying £250 in compensation to a parish council in Somerset to make up for the damage.
2. Gay people.
Not only did Jeremy once use the phrase "ginger beer" in a derogatory »
