Paul Bettany loves getting "a big bag of cash" for starring in Marvel films.

The 43-year-old actor, who plays J.A.R.V.I.S. and Vision in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron', makes his first on-screen appearance in a Marvel film in the new movie and has revealed it was a "double-edged sword".

Speaking at a press conference at the Corinthia Hotel in London yesterday (21.04.15), Paul told BANG Showbiz: "It was lovely to finally be on set with a bunch of people that I'd been supposedly working with for ten years but never actually met.

"It's a double-edged sword. Initially, my job was turning up at the end of the movie with the superhero power of if anything was still unclear I could clarify it by just talking and they would give me a big bag of cash! I couldn't imagine that the contract would ever be better than that."

Paul said that despite 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' boasting a star-studded cast - which includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner - he found everyone to be very friendly .

He said: "It was a dream, honestly. Everyone was so welcoming, a bunch of really lovely, happy, well-paid actors."

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much…
