First up, I’ll try to keep my
rage jealousy that Avengers: Age of Ultron has already premiered across the pond in check, but um, NO FAIR! That out of my system, can we talk about how adorable Paul Bettany’s reserve is? Appearing on The One Show, the actor called the premiere “bonkers” (nutty bonkers!), and seemed genuinely shocked by crowds camping out two nights before. He also described appearing with his fellow Avengers at last year’s Comic Con thusly: “We were like red meat in front of howling wolves…” But the best part is when he talks about accidentally falling in love with an American — his wife, Jennifer Connelly. Check it:
The poor guy’s homesickness is palpable, especially when he talks about watching football.
Now let’s get down to the nitty gritty — the reason we’re all here — this (finally!) clip of Bettany’s smooth, sleek Vision having a little run-in with our man, Thor:
I’m digging that hard stop; the way he moves reminds me of a hummingbird…but I’m guessing Vision’s not as nice.
Hurry up, May 1st!
