Paul Bettany has upgraded his superhero movie presence from the voice of operating system JARVIS in Iron Man 1, 2 and 3 to some kind of benevolent synthesized android gentleman named The Vision in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. It is truly the role Paul Bettany was born to play! Actually, the homicidal albino Opus Dei monk from The Da Vinci Code was the role he was born to play, but this part sounds right up his alley too.
