Marvel’s Paul Bettany Terrorizes House Guests With Hidden Vision Bust On Toilets And In Beds
During an appearance on Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, Avengers: Endgame Star Paul Bettany has revealed that one of the things he kept from his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a cast of his face, painted red and used during the production of some of his scenes as The Vision. What’s more interesting than the fact that he took the cast is why: he apparently uses it to prank guests who come to spend the night at his house. Colbert presented a photo to Bettany, who appeared to promote A very British scandal alongside his co-star, Claire Foy, and the actor seemed surprised to see him.
The initial photo showed the bust sitting on top of a toilet tank. A second photo later showed him on a guest bed with his head on the pillow and a blanket pulled up until the cast was finished.
“They made a bust of me so they could light scenes when I wasn’t there,” Bettany told the host. “I don’t know why they didn’t just use it in the real scenes, because we have a similar quality of wood. And I stole it so I could take it to my country house and hide it… when people come to stay, hide it in their toilets.”

Sure, the “red” Vision might be gone, but Colbert asked if the actor’s “White Vision” variant might appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness…well, he had nothing of value to say in terms of an answer. If so, good news: maybe he’ll have another equally scary bust for any other guest rooms he might have.
Here’s the official synopsis for that film, which is set to hit theaters on May 6.
Now that Iron Man and Captain America are gone after a fierce battle in Avengers: Endgame, former genius surgeon and the most powerful of magicians, Doctor Strange, should take an active role as the central character of the Avengers. However, using his magic to manipulate time and space at will with a forbidden spell considered the most dangerous has opened the door to a mysterious madness called “the Multiverse”.
To restore a world where everything is changing, Strange enlists the help of his ally Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme, and the Avengers’ most powerful Scarlet Witch, Wanda. But a terrible threat hangs over humanity and the entire universe that can no longer be done by their power alone. Even more surprisingly, the universe’s greatest threat looks exactly like Doctor Strange.
