After taking part in Marvel Studios’ seemingly top-secret photo shoot yesterday to celebrate the movie studio’s tenth anniversary, actor Paul Bettany took to Instagram earlier today to share a behind the scenes shot of him getting ready in a makeup trailer getting ready as his Marvel Cinematic Universe counterpart — Vision.
Since filming has wrapped on Avengers: Infinity War, this behind the scenes snapshot would hint that Vision lives through the movie’s events and makes it onto Avengers 4, the untitled Infinity War sequel that’s currently under production.
This goes against a popular fan theory that says the creation of Ultron is one of the Avengers to die at the hands of Thanos and his Black Order, beings that he has an Infinity Stone — the Mind Stone, to be exact — embedded in his head. And, of course, the Infinity Gauntlet wouldn’t be made complete without it.
Then again, this photo could be a flashback when the actor was in the midst of getting ready for Infinity War and just got around to posting it this weekend, only time will tell.
Avengers 4 currently has a 4.06 out of 5 ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating, making it the sixth most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com users. Let us know how excited you are for Avengers 4 by giving the film your own personal ComicBook.com User Rating below.
