An eagle-eyed Instagram user (israel06) managed to capture some still shots from an international Disney event that give us our best look at Paul Bettany’s The Vision to date. The promo images, which you can check out in the gallery below, made their way online earlier today and showcase the line-up of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes — not counting the Maximoff twins and The Hulk, of course — who will go toe-to-toe with James Spader’s power-hungry AI in next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Getting back to Paul Bettany’s humanoid, though, and it’s made abundantly clear that Marvel has retooled his appearance ever so slightly in his jump from the comic book pages to the silver screen. Gone are the green and yellow guise along with the mammoth collar, with the studio opting for a slightly more mechanized interpretation.
Age of Ultron is fast approaching its May release date. But before the group assemble for another bout of world-saving action, Joss Whedon’s sequel will undergo two weeks of reshoots in January, with reports suggesting that the extra scenes will include more of Asgard’s characters — namely Heimdall and Tom Hiddleston’s Loki.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will blast into theaters on May 1, 2015. Until then, be sure to check out the close-ups of The Vision in the gallery below.
