Paul Bettany Loved How Vision’s Infinity War Story Ended

WARNING: This article contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War and Solo: A Star Wars Story, in theaters now.

Vision actor Paul Bettany has appeared on the big screen in two massive franchises over the last month and a half, with the releases of both Avengers: Infinity War and Solo: A Star Wars Story. However, it was the ending of his character arc in Infinity War that he loved the most.

In an interview with GQ, Bettany was asked which of the three deaths he experiences in these films was his favorite, to which he responded his death at the hands of Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch. "Ooooh, I don't know," Bettany answered. "I think that being murdered by the love of your life [Scarlet Witch] because you're asking them to is pretty moving stuff that they wrote for us."

Vision's story arc ended twice in Infinity War, once at the hands of Scarlet Witch and then again by Thanos. In the film, Vision realizes that the only way to stop the Mad Titan from wiping out half of the universe's population is to destroy the Mind Stone -- something that only Wanda is capable of, but she refuses to do. However, when Thanos finally comes to Earth with the remaining five Infinity Stones already in tow, Vision once again asks Wanda to destroy the Mind Stone, which she reluctantly does, killing him in the process. Unfortunately for Wanda, Vision is resurrected by Thanos through the use of the Time Stone, only to die again when Thanos takes the Mind Stone for himself, while she is powerless to stop it.

In theaters now, Avengers: Infinity War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston and Josh Brolin, among others.
