When it comes to relationships in Avengers: Infinity War, it’s hard to find one that isn’t at some kind of turning point. Friends are on uneven ground, relationships are being tested, and love – in all of its forms – must be stronger than ever.
Vision and Scarlet Witch will face the most emotional turning point in their relationship. With Vision being in immediate, and grave, danger and the thought of being human – there’s a lot for them to sort out.
Paul Bettany had this to say to Cinemablend.
‘I think that Vision’s been on this quest to understand what being human is and I think Scarlet Witch has in a large degree helped him figure that out and what love is. “I wanna know what love is?” It’s in the movie, that’s the scene the paparazzi shot. “I wanna know what love is?” Yeah, so they’re trying to figure that out.’
Elizabeth Olsen said this is 100% the most emotional arc she’s experienced during her time with the MCU. What happens to Vision directly affects Wanda, and not just now, but in the future.
‘This is definitely the most emotional arc I’ve done in an Avengers film, that’s for sure. Because when we’re talking about Vision becoming human, we’re talking about their relationship, and it’s a pretty grounded arc.’
Bettany chimed in again and says he agrees. It’s the most emotional for him as well, and honestly, for everyone involved. They’re ill-prepared to handle the villain that is Thanos. It’s going to wear on all of them.
‘Yeah, I think it is the most emotional. Also, the cost and the danger that we’re all facing becomes more important than certain beef that people had in the past, because it’s so desperate. The point of the Avengers, and by extension mankind, it’s fraught with danger. So I think old grudges from Civil War are buried and put off until next time.’
We’re holding out hope that Vision not only survives but thrives on his own and in his relationship with Wanda after the battle against Thanos ends. However that happens…whenever that happens.
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on April 27th.
