One of the riskiest and biggest additions to Avengers: Age of Ultron was Paul Bettany’s debut as The Vision, but it turns out he could’ve had a very different look.
Concept artist Ryan Meinerding has revealed some new artwork from the development phase of the blockbuster sequel, and it turns out the comic-inspired look we saw in the final film (which you can see above) wasn’t the first one considered. They apparently played around with some different color combinations, and at one point, a design that almost feels more polygonal. There's also one where the cape looks more like vapor than an actual cape.
These are interesting, to be sure, but we really dug the final version that made it into the film. Fantastical, but still believable.
Check out the concept art below and let us know what you think:
