There was a previous rumored report that Paul Bettany was seen in London for The Avengers 2 taking part in some sort of scene set in the 1940s featuring Chris Evans as Steve Rogers and Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter.
The scene featuring Paul Bettany has never been confirmed, but the actor was recently spotted with a cane walking around NYC this past Tuesday.
Just Jared has the pic of Bettany in NYC, but doesn't state why he is using the cane.
It's unknown if this is a result of filming for The Avengers 2 or something else (possibly exercise related?). The injury looks to have happened some time in the past couple of weeks as Bettany was seen at the Transcendence premiere on April 10th without the cane as well as on Jimmy Kimmel on April 11th.
We'll update when more news becomes known.
Paul Bettany is set to play the Vision in The Avengers 2.
