Is this Avengers: Endgame green line a hint, a glitch ... or just wishful thinking? It might be a combination of things, but the existence of a splash of color toward the bottom of Vision's "Avenge the Fallen" character poster has some fans hopeful he survived Thanos' snap. The posters featuring characters who survived the Avengers: Infinity War Decimation are all in color, with those confirmed to have been in the less lucky 50% shown in black-and-white. (Side note: It's like the Big Brother memory wall.) So that's why the green line in Vision's poster raised eyebrows:
You can see a green line across Vision's neck, in the poster BossLogic tweeted with this note:
My boy vision has one line of color on his poster, this could be the best sign of life error on a poster ????
It's possible Vision's green line was a technical glitch Paul Bettany passed along. But this is Marvel, and fans have been trained to read into every little detail -- or at least fans have decided to go ahead and read into every little detail. There are any number of things that bit of color could mean, if it wasn't a mistake.
Some fans think this might be a hint to Vision returning as a ghost of himself, as he did in Marvel Comics. As CBR noted, when Thanos killed Vision the second time in Infinity War -- after turning back time from when Scarlet Witch finally destroyed the Mind Stone -- a close-up of Vision's face showed his eyes turn completely white. That was read as a possible hint to the "West Coast Avengers" storyline where Vision had been disassembled, and was essentially dead, but Hank Pym was able to put him back together as this ghost version. The new Vision wasn't just white, though, he also lacked the emotion of the previous Vision. That was particularly hard on Scarlet Witch, who was then his wife.
It's possible Paul Bettany's poster just had a technical error. But maybe... Fans don't have long to wait for answers on who might return in Avengers: Endgame. The task at hand for the survivors is to somehow fix what happened -- bring back the 50% who were snapped. Whatever it takes.
Don't forget that Disney+ is also planning some kind of Vision and Scarlet Witch series for the new streamer. Disney+ is meant to premiere later this year, and we're on standby for more details on these standalone series. Avengers: Endgame has to come out first, ending Phase 3, to give us a big hint on the direction of the MCU from here.
