New promotional artwork for Avengers: Age Of Ultron surfaced on December 5, 2014. Among other things, the artwork revealed the first look at the android character the Vision, who will be portrayed in the film by Paul Bettany. An image popped up on Instagram and briefly circulated before being deleted. However, full images were later posted online, seemingly officially.
In Age Of Ultron, to be released May 1, 2015, the Vision will be a synthetic humanoid created by android Ultron (James Spader) to prove that he can also create life after being created in turn by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr). In the comics, the Vision rebelled against Ultron and eventually joined the Avengers, falling in love with fellow team member Scarlet Witch (to be played by Elizabeth Olsen onscreen). Age Of Ultron, like its predecessor, will be directed by Joss Whedon.
