Paul Bettany has confirmed his role in the 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'.

The 42-year-old star was rumoured to star as the Vision in the sequel to 2012's hit film 'The Avengers' after he was spotted meeting with director Joss Whedon at Shepperton Studios, near London in February and although he remained coy about the film's plot he insisted his character can do ''all sorts of things''.

Talking on US chat show 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', he said: ''He can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do, because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me.''

Bettany - who was catapulted to the spotlight in 2000's 'Gangster No. 1' - is thought to have had a number of costume, hair and make-up tests in a bid to emulate the Vision's extremely pale complexion.

He joins an all-star cast which includes Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth's (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk) and Chris Evans (Captain America).

He previously voiced J.A.R.V.I.S. which is Tony Stark's artificially intelligent computer in 'The Avengers', and also voiced him in the three 'Iron Man' films.

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' is tipped for a May 2015 release.
