New Avengers: Endgame Theory Teases A Key Role For Vision


Just over a month ago, Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo seemingly put a popular line of speculation to rest when he claimed that contrary to the various forum theories, Vision did indeed die at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. But since Joe and his brother Anthony Russo are known to tell the odd fib for the sake of keeping spoilers under wraps, perhaps it’s only right that fans aren’t giving up just yet on the notion that Paul Bettany’s character somehow survived his encounter with Thanos.

This new theory from Reddit user Wheresthetrigger123, for instance, draws on evidence from Vision’s two death scenes to suggest that the hero will play a crucial role in the Infinity War sequel. First off, it’s observed that when the character dies by Scarlet Witch’s hand, the Mind Stone in his head explodes before the rest of his body shatters into little red pieces. But when Thanos reverses time to kill Vision again, the Mad Titan rips the stone out of the android’s head before the character’s body goes gray.

So, what does this mean? Well, according to Wheresthetrigger123, while Vision was well and truly dead in the sequence where the Mind Stone was destroyed, the android may have been able to transfer his consciousness into the stone during the second ‘death,’ hence the graying effect as he leaves his former body. From here, the case is made that Vision may have been able to use his presence in the Mind Stone to somehow alter the infamous finger-snap, causing half the universe’s population to transfer to some other plane of existence instead of outright killing them.

While the evidence remains very thin for the theory, it’s still an interesting enough idea, and seeing how it’s already confirmed that Vision has a future in the franchise as part of an upcoming TV series, this would certainly be one way of keeping the character in the saga. In any case, we’ll find out how Vision’s story can continue when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th, 2019.
