Behold The Vision!
Marvel’s cinematic universe continues to expand by adding new heroes or villains all of the time. Most recently, the Guardians of the Galaxy were added to Marvel’s space universe. The film itself was the biggest domestic hit of 2014 until American Sniper over took it last weekend at the box office. The first Avengers film was so successful that audiences have been flocking to Marvel movies and trying to find teases what will come into Avengers 2. Joss Whedon, the director of Avengers 2: Age of Ultron, announced that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be part of the cast. Last summer, it was announced Paul Bettany, the voice of Jarvis, will play Vision.
Who is Vision?
Vision is an artificial intelligent robot created either Tony Stark or Bruce Banner or Ultron depending on what comic book or television series you watch. It’s rumored that Ultron, the big evil robot from the Avengers 2 trailer, will create Vision. Vision is very unique character. He is part of the West Coast Avengers, ( include heroes such as Wasp, Ant-Man, or a few other), Defenders (Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and a few other members), and more importantly is a big hero of the Avengers. Vision in all likelihood help connect Ant-man and Daredevil with the current Avengers roster. The character help form a connection between movies and the Netflix’s, TV series called the Defenders. Fan really want to see Daredevil help defeat Thanos along with Iron Man, Spider-man, Captain America, and the newest Avengers from the upcoming movies. Vision might the be key to everything.
What Can Vision do?
Vision has multiple abilities.
- Density control ranging from invulnerability to intangibility
- Mass control ranging from extraordinarily heavy to weightlessness
- Utilizes phasing into beings/objects then solidifying as a means of molecular disruption, causing pain/damage or death/destruction
- Solar energy projection (via eyes or solar jewel on forehead)
- Computer/IT network interfacing
- Superhuman strength, intelligence, reflexes and senses as an artificial being
- Capable of self repair and regeneration
Vision is also like Data from Star Trek: Next Generation. He strives to be more human. He has a long relationship with Scarlett Witch. They actually get hitched in the comic book but it might happen in Marvel movies someday. Scarlett Witch will be played Elizabeth Olson in Avengers 2. The android is nearly indestructible and really is a complex hero for a machine.
The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron comes out on May 1st, 2015. The movie is already expected to break the billion dollar mark again at worldwide box office. Vision, Scarlett Witch, and Quicksilver will be introduced as key potential members of the future Avengers teams. Vision needed to be written about because many people are already familiar with Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver. He is also getting less attention from major movie media because people don’t realize how important the character is. More importantly, Vision could be that hero who shows up and helps out Daredevil along Spider-man to bring the man without fear into the cinematic universe.
side note: Netflix released a new trailer for Daredevil and below is that trailer.
