Avengers: Age Of Ultron promo art offers first look at Vision

paul bettany hints potential role vision captain america civil war avengers
We got our first good look at the robotic villain of Avengers: Age Of Ultron back in July, but the team’s android ally The Vision has remained a bit of a mystery so far. Some new promotional art making the rounds online, however, may shed some light on how actor Paul Bettany will look as the character.

The image originally appeared on Instagram and was subsequently deleted, but not before various sites picked it up. The photo features an unidentified person standing in front of an Age Of Ultron banner with Vision prominently displayed facing the camera. (There’s also an enlarged version of the image focusing on Vision over at Ain’t It Cool News.)

A few months ago, Bettany offered some hints about his character’s origin, indicating that it’s not a coincidence that he plays both the voice of Tony Stark’s computerized assistant J.A.R.V.I.S. and The Vision. From the promo image that appeared online, it seems as if much of the character’s signature look has made the transition from page to screen, with only a few small elements (most notably, the high collar on his comics counterpart’s cape) being dropped for the film version of Vision.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron is directed by Joss Whedon and hits theaters May 1, 2015.

The PRedator alien roars against a gray fog in the background.

Director Dan Trachtenberg's Prey not only revived the Predator franchise with its story of a Comanche hunter battling a terrifying alien hunter, but it also earned the best reviews of the entire film series.

Released on Hulu in August, Prey is set in 1719 and features one of the Predator franchise's titular extraterrestrials testing its mettle against a variety of wild animals -- including a wolf and bear -- before challenging the human inhabitants of the region. Overall visual effects supervisor Ryan Cook led a team of visual effects studios tasked with bringing the Predator's hunt to life, and relied on primary studio MPC and its VFX supervisor, Chris Uyede, for more than 600 shots in the film.

What is MPEG-H? The burgeoning 3D audio standard explained

When putting together your audio or home theater setup — or eyeing upgrades for your current system — it’s always good to be on the lookout for new and cool technologies that can enhance your music, movies, and TV shows. When it comes to audio, we've all been wowed by the now-commonplace sound standards that are Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, which offer immersive three-dimensional surround sound experiences. And while these standards remain at the top of the heap, there's a new player making its way to the fore that offers a level of flexibility and personalized audio control we've never seen before: MPEG-H.

While not exactly new and yet to be widely adopted, MPEG-H support is showing up in more and more TVs, set-top boxes, soundbars, AV receivers, and more, allowing users to do some pretty cool sound fine-tuning -- from simple adjustments like enhancing and increasing movie dialog to more advanced personalizations like tweaking the audio mix to turn down the fans of the opposing sports team, all using your remote or an app. It's a neat level of control we've not seen before.
