MCU made its grand debut on the small screen with WandaVision at the beginning of 2021, and it did so with a bang. The show immediately had fans on their toes with its mysterious and head-scratching plot. We finally got to explore Wanda layer by layer and understand her in-depth. WandaVision has brought a new dawn in the MCU with the introduction of magic and the Scarlet Witch.
From comedy to recalling classic shows, creating suspense, devastating emotions, and symphonies of different eras, fans have savoured each element of it. It’s been over 5 months since the series ended on Disney+ and we are still obsessing over it. So, it’s no surprise that one of the protagonists is also reminiscing about his days from the set. The beloved actor, Paul Bettany, widely known as Vision has recently shared a picture from behind the scenes. It is not just a random #TBT picture, but a funny selfie that also signifies how much Bettany genuinely misses his character. It had a simple caption “Good Evening”, and featured Bettany giving an awkward smile in Vision’s classic Marvel comic book costume. Even earlier this year, Bettany said that he’d love to continue playing Vision. While some actors understand when it’s time to retire from a role, Paul Bettany knows that he has more to explore about Vision.

Vision’s Journey So Far
As an audience, we have interacted with Vision in bits and pieces in every movie. He was introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron and continued with the heroes in Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. It feels like there’s still a lot more to learn about the android who tried to blend in with humans. After Vision died in Infinity War, Bettany revived his role in WandaVision.
He got to play two versions of Vision, one created by Wanda’s Chaos Magic and the other, White Vision, the real soulless one without the Mind Stone. In the end, we saw good Vision kissing goodbye to Scarlet Witch and disappearing into the unknown. We are yet to find out what plans MCU has for Vision in future projects. However, sweet Paul has always enjoyed playing Vision and would love to continue his journey.
When asked about it during an interview, Paul Bettany said,
“I love Vision. Yes, I’m in,”
“I mean, that’s the thing, right? I’ve never had a loved one to lose… I don’t know what grief is because I’ve never had a loved one to lose,” he added. “There is so much to get into with him because it’s been ten minutes here, ten minutes there, in the movies,
“Now we’re sort of just starting to sort of peel back some stuff.”
What do you think of Vision’s return? WandaVision is streaming on Disney+.
