Avengers: Infinity War looks to be a bloodbath. At least, that’s the speculation, based on the source material of Infinity Gauntlet, which saw the death of nearly every Avenger under the sun. Plus, for over a dozen films, we’ve seen many of these characters evolve and grow, and in order to make room for the next generation of heroes, it’s not unreasonable to assume that a couple heroes may die.
But who? Well, there’s been one hero specifically that fans have seen on the chopping block, and that’s Vision. Vision’s life derives from the Infinity Stone that was once in Loki’s staff. In order for Thanos to bring his Infinity Gauntlet to full power, he’ll need to pull the stone from Vision’s head, presumably killing him. That much seems logical, but in a recent interview with Collider, actor Paul Bettany seemed to inadvertently indicate that he’ll be back for the next film.
Here’s what he had to say when asked if Avengers: Infinity War felt like a big movie when making it:
“Yes, it really did. It felt like the biggest movie that I’ve ever made and will ever make, and we’ve still got to make the [next] one. It’s f**king crazy! “
His use of the word “we” is a suspicious one indeed. Of course, he could been using the royal we as in the filmmakers and actors as a unit. That being said, he would’ve had to refer to them as “they” if it didn’t include him in the equation, and based on how casual he sounded, it seemed like he just wasn’t thinking things through enough to make that distinction. But let’s assume he’s didn’t misspeak. What does this mean?
Like any comic book movie, it’s always possible that he can die in one film and come back to life in the next once the gauntlet is disassembled (assuming that even happens — it doesn’t in the book). So it’s still very possible to die in Infinity War and come back in Avengers 4. That being said, it certainly seems to indicate that if there is any death in Infinity War, it won’t be permanent.
