In another world, in another universe, in another life, in another dimension, we all know what Vision’s package looks like outside of that fan art you thought you deleted but keeps being re-blogged and is now deep-fried beyond all recognition on Imgur. According to WandaVision star Paul Bettany, Vision’s penis almost made it into Avengers: Age of Ultron after orders for its creation came straight from director Joss Whedon in the midst of making Marvel’s second blockbuster team-up film.
Bettany revealed the story of Vision’s nixed tallywacker in an interview with Lights, Camera, Pod, recalling that Whedon was very keen for the Avengers to witness the birth of Vision in a much more natural state during his 2015 introduction into the MCU.
“I know Joss Whedon apparently really, really wanted the rendition of him, when Vision first is born, before he was clothed, he was like ‘He’s gotta have a penis,’ And everyone — Kevin [Feige], Louis [D’Esposito], I mean everybody was like, ‘I don’t know, Joss…I mean…I’m not sure,'” Bettany explained, adding Whedon argued that “He has to have a penis. I want to see some drawings of penises.”
Bettany, who has been doing the rounds promoting Marvel’s new Disney+ series where he reprises the role of Vision alongside Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, thinks evidence of the synthezoid’s schlong process might still be out there, despite Whedon ultimately rejecting his own call for the bare necessities.
