With Thanos approaching to destroy Earth, it seems likely that a few of our beloved MCU superheroes may be kicking the bucket before the end of Avengers 4. And with a bunch of the actors' contracts up after the next two Avengers movies, there are quite a few heroes that seem likely to die over the next few films. One character who seems extremely likely to die at the hands of Thanos is Paul Bettany's Vision. Thanos is on a quest for Infinity Stones, and Vision was brought to life by the one on his forehead, so I can't imagine he evades the villain for long. But now it looks like he likely won't die in Infinity War, as Bettany recently claimed he's working on the fourth Avengers movie, saying:
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 fucking crazy!
This statement comes to us from Paul Bettany's recent conversation with Collider about his Discovery series Manhunt: Unabomber. But all roads lead to Marvel, and he ended up dishing a bit about what the experience of working on Avengers: Infinity War was like. After gushing about the star-studded cast and massive scope of the film, he may have let slip that he would be returning for Avengers 4.
Of course, Paul Bettany has been media trained, and may actually be attempting to throw fans off of the trail. Vision seems like one of the easiest targets for Thanos once he finally arrives, as the living android is one of the few remaining members of the proper Avengers. As such, he Tony, and War Machine would likely be the first line of defense for the planet, since no one knows where Cap's team of fugitives are. And there's no way Thanos will come face to face with the Mind Stone and not take it for himself.
Then again, the contents of Infinity War have been thoroughly kept under wraps, so it seems like just about anything is possible. If the Guardians of the Galaxy can meet up with the Avengers before their battle with Thanos, then perhaps they'll be able to hide Vision and Doctor Strange's Time Stone in hiding in the Sanctum Sanctorum. Although pissing Thanos off by hiding the Infinity Stones may spell disaster for the superheroes who attempt to battle the giant purple villain. The footage from Infinity War showed Thanos' immense power, and it's going to be hard for our heroes to do battle with him at all.
Avengers: Infinity War will arrive in theaters on May 4, 2018. In the meantime, check out our 2017 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
