In an interview with SFX Magazine (Via CBM) Joss Whedon dished out some details on The Vision saying;
“Once again, he’s someone who’s completely different than anybody else in terms of his powers, his look, but also his perspective…He’s artificial life and he’s not caught up in the in-house bickering and the pain and self-doubt. He shows up and he’s very certain. But we’re not certain what he’s certain of! And Paul’s great, because she’s so gentle, so compelling, but at the same time you’re like ‘He’s nice but…what if murdered me?’”
“-he’s very certain. But we’re not certain what he’s certain of!” I’m kind of confused by this point, which is a good thing. I want to be a little confused and then see the movie and have it all made clear, gives it a little more mystery.
Whedon goes on in the interview to talk a bit about Ultron;
“You know, he’s really been a mainstay of The Avengers, but for me it’s a robot who’s angry. And that was a gateway for me to a robot who’s completely irrational. I wanted to write a robot that we really haven’t seen in this kind of movie, who can basically talk all the logical robot things, but then has hissy fits! He also has a real perspective on who the Avengers are, and a real beef with them. He’s not a straw man. The thing that worked about Loki was that he was able to get inside everybody’s head a little bit, and Ultron, he’s got the same thing. He knows pretty much everything there is to know about these guys. The only way you can attack Earth’s mightiest heroes is from within.”
The interesting point he brings up is that last sentence. “The only way you can attack Earth’s mightiest heroes is from within.” I’m thinking that he is not only talking about Ultron knowing how to manipulate The Avengers or Scarlett Witch physically forcing the team to turn on one another, but also possible teasing The Vision’s involvement. Since Ultron creates The Vision to attack The Avengers only to take their side to attack him, which was all part of his plan, or something. It’s all a bit complicated. Rob from Comics Explained tells the story pretty well. (below)
