Infinity Warfare virtually had a WandaVision scene after the mortgage with imaginative and prescient in a physique bag
Infinity War almost had a post-credits scene WandaVision. Back in 2018, Marvel Studio began developing their Disney + shows, including bringing Marvel Cinematic Universe characters back from the big to the small screen. One of the first shows to be talked about was one that would bring Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff back. Jac Schaeffer was brought on board in January 2019 to start writing the series. So the seeds had been planted long before their premiere in 2021.
In a new interview with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, the two MCU actors were able to ask each other questions. Olsen started by asking Bettany if he could ever think of returning to the MCU after Vision was killed in Avengers: Infinity War. He admitted that he only had a “10-15%” chance that Vision would return, which seemed to take Olsen by surprise. He told her about a post-credits scene in Infinity War that didn’t make the cut. Bettany explains.
“At some point I would be in a label where you opened some kind of body bag drawer and there was the vision … Kevin kind of talked to me and said, ‘I have to be in charge.’ I said, “Ugh!” Because I really wanted this profit-sharing (laughs). ”
Paul Bettany started his MCU career as JARVIS in Iron Man 2008, which started it all. Bettany was involved with the MCU from the start and felt that his time was over. The actor told Elizabeth Olsen that he thought he would be fired when Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige invited him to a meeting through WandaVision. After the events of Infinity War, Bettany was certain his time at the MCU was over.
To keep everyone comfortable, Paul Bettany decided to go to his meeting with Kevin Feige and others to tell them that he had enjoyed his time with them. The actor thought it would relieve tension. “So I went in and didn’t want anything to get awkward between us all because it was a great time. So I went in and said, ‘Kevin and Louis [D’Esposito, Marvel Studios co-president], I love you. I totally understand. It was a great run and no hard feelings, “recalls Bettany. He continues.” And Kevin said, “Wait, are you stopping?” And I said, “No, won’t you fire me?” And he said, ‘No, we wanted to show you a TV show.’ “
Infinity War ended up pretty bleak and it would have been especially dark to see Vision, who technically died twice in the film, in a body bag. Now MCU fans are looking at WandaVision for answers on how the character seems to come back to life. Most theories revolve around a dream that Wanda has, but that has yet to be confirmed.
