Watch Paul Bettany Transform Into the Vision in New Avengers: Age of Ultron Blu-ray Featurette
The Avengers: Age of Ultron Blu-ray comes out this fall, and although it sadly won't have a director's cut, it will have over 45 minutes of bonus footage, including deleted scenes, a gag reel, an audio commentary, and making-of featurettes. 



Now, we have a few of those featurettes ahead of the official release, with the most recent showing us Paul Bettany's transformation into fan favorite android Vision:



In the video, we get to see Bettany in his motion capture suit briefly, but it mostly shows us the nitty gritty of his makeup and costume. It was an arduous process, with the application of the makeup and prosthetics taking an hour and a half, basically giving him an entirely new head. He then puts on his "robot muscle suit," so hot, he had to wear a cooling suit underneath that runs ice water through a system of piping. It sounds incredibly uncomfortable, especially since he could barely see or hear while in the costume, but he good-naturedly describes it as "like being inside a gin and tonic."

We're glad Bettany took it in stride, as Vision was one of the best parts of the film; the scene between him and Ultron was a personal favorite, and demonstrated what the movie could have been if it hadn't been so overstuffed with characters and Easter eggs. But Vision will clearly continue to have a large role in future MCU films, so hopefully Infinity War will get the character right.

Here are two more featurettes from the Age of Ultron Blu-ray:
