In Avengers: Age of Ultron whilst Scarlet Witch was still on team Hydra she gave Tony stark a vision of the future, it showed the original Avengers all dead on a heap as Thanos’ armies flew over the top of them. Tony was already suffering from PTSD after the events of Avengers and it certainly affected him badly to see the possibility of his friends all dying, so much so that Tony ended up creating Ultron with the help of Bruce Banner. The scene was really an insight into Tony’s motivations which helped propel the plot of that movie.
Scarlet Witch actress Elizabeth Olsen, while appearing at ACE Comic-Con in Chicago this weekend alongside Loki star Tom Hiddleston, was asked by the crowd whether this vision was, in fact, a glimpse of the future for Tony in Avengers 4, here is what the actress told the crowd as reported by ComicBook.com.
“I don’t know. I don’t know if that’s what could have happened if Ultron took over. I’m not sure. I think it’s up to interpretation. It wasn’t something that I remember someone was saying that we’re going to go full circle to Infinity War — there wasn’t an Infinity War at that time [laughs]. But I think I always thought of it being what would happen if Ultron won. But I think it’s more interesting the way you’re thinking about it.”
Hiddleston then interjected saying.
“Well, maybe Tony has got the long view?”
After the tragic ending of Infinity War I am not sure that Avengers 4 will feature Tony stark alone after all the original Avengers have been killed, but then what do I know? We still know so little about what is going to go down in that movie, that anything is still possible at this point. On what will come next for our heroes, especially given the fact Scarlett Witch is currently officially dead in the MCU, Olsen would only say one thing.
“It’s only going to get worse.”
So who knows, perhaps Tony does have to carry on after the deaths of his team at some point, but I wouldn’t bet on it just yet?
What do you think of Olsen’s comments, did you see this as a vision of further down the line, or instead of what may happen had the Avengers lost to Ultron back in Sokovia? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
