Paul Bettany shared some insights about his character in the fight between superheroes in “Captain America: Civil War,” in a recent interview. The actor travelled to the Philippines to attend the AsiaPOP Comic Convention, where he was asked questions about his new movie.
In an interview with PeP, Bettany (The Vision) described his character in the forthcoming movie as someone who is “dangerous.” The actor also explained that some of the conversations around his character are related to the question of whether he is a “force of good or force of evil.”
Bettany pointed out that it is not always clear whether the character is “going to go one way or another.” The actor also said that The Vision is both “omnipotent and yet totally naive” in the new movie.
The producers apparently gave Bettany comics to read, in order to help him prepare for the role. The actor said that he had fun playing the role and now has the added security of knowing that he will be reprising the role in at least a “couple” more movies after “Captain America: Civil War.”
Talking about what it was like to film the movie, Bettany said that the atmosphere on the set was “really loose” and all the cast members had fun. The actor said that there were some “improvised jokes” between him and his fellow cast members Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark) and Chris Evans (Steve Rogers).
Another major character featured in the forthcoming movie is Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). The character was introduced in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” along with The Vision. In a previous interview with Refinery29, the actress said that her character will continue to be a “wild card” in the forthcoming movie and described this to be a “great position” for such movies.
Olsen teased that Scarlet Witch will be mentally in a “place where she has nothing” in “Captain America: Civil War.” The actress added that the character will now be “conflicted” about what she should be doing. She may have been referring to her character’s role in the conflict between the two superhero factions in the movie.
