SDCC 14: AGENT CARTER to debut live action Jarvis
Everyone who has seen Iron Man or any Avengers film featuring Tony Stark is familiar with Jarvis, the robotic AI that he uses to control his house and armor. He’s been known to have a dry sense of humor, which has been brilliantly played (voice only) by Paul Bettany. Bettany will also be featured in the upcoming AVENGERS 2: AGE OF ULTRON as The Vision, Jarvis turned robot.
However, we may be meeting the real Edwin Jarvis this fall in Marvel’s TV series, AGENT CARTER. Collider managed to catch up with Agent Carter producers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con to quiz them about how much the series will tie into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. “What’s great is that we have the same bonus with Cap one, that we could do anything we want because we don’t have to tie into anything because we come before everything,” McFeely revealed. “Then we forced them to tie into us.” Markus would would reveal one very interesting detail; we’re finally going to get to see Edwin Jarvis, the man who serves as The Avengers’ faithful butler in the comic books but has been replaced by an A.I. (who is set to become The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “We’ll certainly have Easter eggs and even more than that. I think I can say, one of the characters will be Edwin Jarvis, who is Howard Stark’s manservant, who goes on to be a tutor to Tony, and therefore is the inspiration for the AI voice and all that. So it’s that kind of interconnectedness that should make peoples ears go … that’s the kind of reaction I want. That’s right.”
