'WandaVision': Will Paul Bettany's Vision return to Marvel? Here's why he may have a cameo in 'Doctor Strange 2'
Paul Bettany's Vision died in the most heartbreaking manner in 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Thanos (Josh Brolin) ripped the mind stone from his head, just a few seconds after Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) had destroyed it. Vision was dead, and there was no hope for his return in 'Avengers: Endgame'. However, this wasn't the end of the love story: the two got their own spinoff series 'WandaVision', which will air on Disney Plus in January 2021.
We have sparing hints on what is going to take place on the show, from what we see, Wanda and Vision are living in an idyllic 1950s suburban life....but it's not exactly what it seems. Is Vision dead, and is all this a figment of Wanda's imagination? Several elements from the comics will be present in the show's storyline, but we don't know exactly what.
Paul Bettany gave tantalizing hints about his Marvel future to SFX Magazine: "I’m going to not speak on that one. I love playing the Vision. I would absolutely love to continue in some way, shape or form, in the universe,” Bettany said.
“I love this character, and I think that, as you will see when you get to watch this, anything is possible. We can break all kinds of rules. It’s very rich storytelling, and it’s full of many opportunities to tell all sorts of different stories. I love being involved, and it’s been a ride of a lifetime,” he added.
For those who have read the comics, they would know that the pair's love story was anything but smooth, as it involved reincarnation, Vision dying several times, demons and phantom kids. The series has drawn on the comics for inspiration, as Olsen had once said. "Kevin [Fiege] told me he wanted to merge two different comic series as inspiration."
"He explained the series would show how Wanda is originally from an Eastern European country and grew up on American black-market products like television. I was a little bit nervous about Marvel doing something on television, because what does that mean and how could it possibly intertwine?" Olsen said about Feige's plans to have the film and television sides of the franchise intersect like never before. "But I got so excited when I heard that nugget of the idea."
And we also know that Wanda will be in the second installment of 'Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness'. So does that mean Vision can return, and if he does, will it be in a parallel universe? There are a lot of questions regarding the film as well as the series, and fans are eagerly waiting to get their answers."
'WandaVision' will air on January 15, 2021, on Disney Plus.
