The Vision is being kept top secret, and any attempts at revealing his look in Avengers: Age of Ultron have been removed. (There’s one you can look here.) With photos being taken down, we have the next best thing, new info about Vision’s origin.

Slash Film was able to visit the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron and interview director Joss Whedon. He talks about how the film will be bigger compared to The Avengers.

“The cast is bigger. The scope is bigger. We have more to work with,” says Whedon. “Not that we’re trying to spend more. In fact, we’re trying to avoid bloat wherever possible. But with this, we’re on a broader canvas. We’re in more countries. We have a bigger world to work with, and a bigger world for them just to be in. Once they exist as a team, we have to deal with what everybody thinks about that, and what that means to the world. So it’s not as simple as it was.”

And now for Vision’s origin. Yes, he will be created by Ultron. That should make Marvel Comics fans happy.

“Before I took the first job, I said, well, I don’t know if I’m right for this or if I want it or you want me, but in the second one, the villain has to be Ultron, and he has to create the Vision, and then, that has to be Bettany,” Whedon said. “It took me three years before I could tell Paul that I’d had that conversation, but after that, I stopped. I was like, that would be cool if you have Ultron, and you have Vision and Paul played him.”

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015.
