Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

What about Justin Hammer? He's been co-opting Stark tech, we saw that in IM2 after all.
Sam Rockwell returns for a small role perhaps? IM3's opening monologue was about past demons that he didn't know he'd created.
Hammer is a self created demon who hates Stark. What if Hammer creates Ultron and Hammer uses his brainwaves as the initial template for Ultron?

Needs some refining but the thought just came to me.

I think Stark is the best option dramatically, but if it were to be somebody else, the military also has one of Stark's suits in their possession.

Having Hammer create something that backfires on him is kind of the plot to Iron Man 2. Plus, you don't really have the same fear of Ultron trying to kill its master. That's why I think Stark or, if not Stark, then the SHIELD organization. Wanting to kill Director Fury isn't quite the same thing, but it's better than Hammer.

Paul Bettany is The Vision!

The Vision was an android created by the robotic villain Ultron, who was meant to be one of Ultron’s henchmen but who instead turns against him and becomes a hero.

They'll probably go with the pale mid-nineties version.

ETA: Oh yeah, this is great casting. Does it point toward Jarvis becoming the Vision?

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

So will this be a tale of Tony Stark's two AI progeny?

The thought occurs to me that Paul Bettany could play both the Vision and Ultron, or at least provide the voice for Ultron, if they're essentially good and evil twins derived from the Jarvis AI program... -- edit -- but of course not, as Praetorian Guard reminds me of below.

They've already announced James Spader as being Ultron.

I wonder, since we now know we are getting an older Pym in Ant-Man, perhaps Ultron will end up being his creation after all (complete with Michael Douglas cameo)? Perhaps a prototype AI he built and shelved that escapes and corrupts Jarvis into helping him. Jarvis (with Stark's aid) ends up freeing himself from Ultron's control and assumes the role of The Vision.

Holy crap. This movie is going to be so jammed packed full of characters.

Iron Man. Cap. Thor. Hulk. Hawkeye. Black Widow. Nick Fury. Maria Hill. War Machine.
Ultron. Vision. Strucker. Scarlet Witch. Quicksilver.

That's 14 primary characters!!!

I thought Bettany made it known that he was content with just voicing JARVIS for the paycheck? This a pretty big upgraded role for him.

Yep. This is gonna take some juggling. It won't be impossible, but there's going to be some serious lifting to be done by everyone involved.

Latino Review's El Maybe is claiming that Ms. Marvel is the "last piece of major casting left in the movie."

There's no way they can cram Ms Marvel into it as well
