Fans of Marvel comic books will already know about Scarlet Witch and the Vision’s romance. Yet, so far in the MCU the two characters have taken their time showing their true feelings. Although we saw a glimmer of something in Captain America: Civil War, it didn’t go any further. However, now a couple of leaked photos from the set of Infinity War may have confirmed this romance. As reported over on We Got This Covered, Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen the images show Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen in very intimate scenes.
Now, up until recently the Vision has looked very much like a robot. However, in the leaked images we can see a human Paul Bettany interacting with Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch. To back this rumour up, Elizabeth Olsen opened up in an interview with We Got This Covered:
“In any other world I would say, “I don’t know,” but because there are paparazzi photos that kind of spoil things for fans – I think it’s safe to say that we now get to explore that part of the comic book. We get to introduce and really explore their relationship. It creates a really exciting arc for me and I’m so lucky I get to work with (Paul) Bettany all the time now. [laughs]”
It’s not clear how this romance will develop. There’s already so much going on in Infinity War and much of the focus will be on Thanos. Could this romantic plot mean that we will see Scarlet Witch and the Vision take up larger roles in Infinity War? We have less than a year to wait for the big Marvel set-piece. So, we won’t have long to find out just how these two fit in with the rest of the story.
Avengers: Infinity War hits cinemas on May 4th 2018.
