This Deleted Scene from 'Infinity War' Shows Just How Powerful Vision Was
Vision (Paul Bettany) was one of the few characters who remained dead at the end of Marvel’s Infinity Saga; he was killed before the Snap, so wasn’t brought back with everybody else in Endgame. He will, however, be returning to the MCU soon, with a little help from the reality-warping powers of his lover Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).
The pair will star in their own spinoff TV show, WandaVision, on the Disney+ streaming service; the plot is expected to revolve around Wanda’s quest to bring Vision back to life, and its 1950s setting suggests she will attempt to do so by venturing into alternate timelines (which makes sense given WandaVision will tie directly into the Phase Four movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness).
In a deleted scene from Avengers: Infinity War, Vision demonstrates just how powerful he is, not to mention badass. The scene takes place in what looks like Doctor Strange’s Sanctum in New York City, and involves a showdown between Vision and Corvus Glaive, a member of Thanos’ Black Order who is tasked with removing the Mind Stone from his head.
The Sanctum backdrop implies that this fight scene would have taken place during the first act of the movie, which doesn’t make a ton of sense given that Glaive isn’t dispatched until the end. However, in the comic lore, he can be resurrected as long as his weapon remains intact.
While Vision eventually killed Glaive in Infinity War by hoisting him with his own petard (or scythe-spear-thingie if you’re getting technical), this alternate scene shows Vision dealing out an even grislier fate to the villain, as he uses his phasing abilities to put his hands directly into Glaive’s chest, and tear out his heart. It’s a pretty cool moment for a character who was largely underserved in the sprawling plot of the last few Avengers movies. That looks set to change with the upcoming WandaVision, although ripping out vital organs might clash a little with the show’s sitcom-esque sensibility.
