Fans have been clamoring for Gregg to play The Vision seemingly since “The Avengers” hit theaters, one even going as far as to create a life-like sculpture to prove he’s a perfect fit for the character. Movies.com recently caught up with the actor and asked him if he’d be interested in taking the role, and he didn’t immediately shoot the idea down.
“You know the Vision is synthetic with a soul, sort of, and he’s an amazing character who I loved when I used to read those comics. I love the idea of Coulson as that guy, but I don’t know if that’s in the cards,” he said.
Gregg seemed a little more optimistic about returning as Agent Coulson in some other form, though.
“I don’t know if we’ll see Agent Coulson again, but I certainly do his voice in their animated series, ’The Ultimate Spider-Man,’ and you never know, there may be a flashback or something sometime,” Gregg said. “I really hit it off with those guys [at Marvel], and I’ve talked to them lately about some ways I can continue to work with them, perhaps as a writer or director.”
“Vision is cool,” he told us in June. “But I would hate to be any AI life form. If I got to come back, I would need to still be somebody who could wisecrack, because my favorite part of the job was that if anybody was going to tease anybody about their diva superhero outfit or whatever, it would be me.”
