MCM London welcomes a Marvel-lous new guest in the shape of Hollywood star Paul Bettany, best known for playing J.A.R.V.I.S and Vision in the hugely popular Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

London-born Bettany voiced Tony Stark’s advanced AI J.A.R.V.I.S in seminal superhero movie Iron Man and its two sequels, as well as Joss Whedon blockbuster The Avengers and its 2015 follow-up, Age of Ultron.

Avengers: Age of Ultron also saw Bettany make his debut as synthetic superhero Vision, a role he has since reprised in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War and this year’s smash hit Avengers: Infinity War.

The British actor also recently appeared in another iconic franchise, playing central antagonist Dryden Vos in Star Wars: Solo – the ruthless, luxury-loving crime lord who serves as the public face of the Crimson Dawn syndicate.

Last year he was seen in the gripping series for Discovery and is currently available on Netflix Manhunt: Unabomber where he played Ted Kaczynski in a complete transformation. He was also seen in the British Film Journey’s End opposite Sam Claflin.

Since his breakout roles as Geoffrey Chaucer in A Knight’s Tale and the titular gangster of Brit crime drama Gangster No 1, Bettany has appeared in a host of big screen productions, with credits including Master and Commander, A Beautiful Mind and The Da Vinci Code.
