Warning: This Article Contains Potential Spoilers for Captain America: Civil War and Potential Future Marvel Films
Captain America: Civil War is going to explode on the scene this May and could potentially change the MCU for years to come. Marvel has released photos that reveal which side each Avenger chooses and it honestly isn't fair at all.
So for Team Cap we have, Ant-Man, Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, Captain Falcon, Winter Soldier, and of course, Captain America himself. A very strong lineup but this team is more based around hand-to-hand combat and honestly doesn't stand a chance against Iron Man's stacked team.
Team Iron Man
For Team Iron Man we have War Machine, Black Widow, Black Panther, The Vision, and Iron Man himself. This team is stacked with firepower while Team Cap is comprised of mainly stealthy heroes. Since this lineup is so stacked many theorists believe that someone may be switching sides to join Cap's team. Many believe that Black Widow will be switching sides due to her friendship with Hawkeye, but that is too obvious. So, if it isn't Black Widow, then who is it?
Will Vision join Team Cap?
So this potential spoiler is coming straight from The Hashtag Show (who were completely accurate in their Vision spoilers for Age of Ultron) and it suggests that Vision may be switching sides at some point during Civil War. This seems very plausible for a few reasons, one being that at the end of Age of Ultron, The Vision carries Scarlet Witch away during the battle against Ultron which sets up a possible Vision and Scarlet Witch relationship, something that is explored in the comics. Scarlet Witch is on Team Cap so Vision's potential love for her may be the driving force for his change of heart. Secondly, The Vision joining Team Cap definitely evens the playing field because as of now, Team Iron Man has the upper hand. I think this rumor seems very plausible and The Hashtag Show were spot on with their Age of Ultron rumors.
The Vision will go to space after Civil War?
The source that The Hashtag Show is getting this information from went on to say that after the events in Civil War, The Vision will venture off into space. This is very interesting because we know that The Vision is brought to life by The Mind Gem. Thanos, the Mad Titan, is on a quest to complete the Infinity Gauntlet and collect all of the Infinity Gems. The Vision will have to meet his demise in order for this to happen, so he venturing into space could lead to his untimely death.
Could Vision appear in Thor: Ragnarok?
We already know that Bruce Banner is going to be in Thor: Ragnarok, but The Vision may be joining them as well. This would be pretty awesome to see Thor, The Hulk, and Vision fighting alongside each other in space! Could he be a appearing in another space-themed Marvel film?
Vision coming to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2?
Guardians of the Galaxy came onto the scene and became one of, if not the best, Marvel films around. This is when we got introduced to Thanos and I think this is where he may get the last piece to his Infinity Gauntlet. Vision again will HAVE to meet his demise if Thanos is going to complete this Gauntlet. Thanos is originally a Guardians of the Galaxy character so I think this is very possible.
Does this all make sense?
Contrary to the GIF above, I do think that all of this makes a lot of sense. Everything seems to fall in line and nothing seems too farfetched. It is very likely that Vision and Scarlett Witch will be romantically involved so that is Vision's incentive to switch sides. Vision being on Team Cap would at least make it a semi-fair fight, even though Vision could singlehandedly destroy them all. This would be very cool to see but at the moment it is just a rumor, what do you think? Is this "Vision" for the film accurate?
