With the news of Paul Bettany being announced as The Vision, the hype for Avengers: Age of Ultron has hit a new high. Now reports of his costume design have surfaced as well. Again Marvel knows how to keep us on the hook for the sequel.
Comicbooktherapy.com is reporting the following, from their source at the Daily Mail. It seems as if Bettany was spotted with future co-star Jeremy Renner at Shepperton Studios in London: “It has a helmet akin to the Iron Man armor, but it’s designed more like a face than a smooth Stark helmet. The iconic yellow and green are present in the design, but it’s more metallic shades than bright ‘comic book colors.’ They said it reminds them somewhat of the T-1000 fromTerminator 2 but it’s not as shiny. The yellow metal “liquid” bits seem to light up. This may or may not happen since there are two designs for that section. One lights up the other doesn’t. That’s the only difference. The cape is present, but they say it appears to only “pop out” when in flight mode. The cape sports some similar shades of yellow as the body. The “neck pieces” are the same yellow but they seem to shift positions from ‘standing’ (for lack of a better word) to ‘flight mode’.”
No description of the helmet/ headpiece yet. This of course is not official, until Marvel or Disney releases a press statement or image. What do you think Maniacs?
