Avengers: Infinity War Concept Art Reveals Alternate Wanda-Vision Farewell Scene

Marvel’s first-ever Disney+ series, WandaVision, concluded its run. The show had a total of nine episodes. WandaVision finally introduced Wanda as the Scarlet Witch after six years of her debut in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. The show is not like any other sitcom. It focuses on a log of VFX, and a storyline that dates back to years. A lot of elements were to be included while focusing on character development. The show is no stranger to last-minute changes. WandaVision heavily focused on Wanda’s powers of reality-warping. The series premiered first in January 2021.

Avengers: Infinity War, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the 2018 Marvel Studios blockbuster began the culmination of the Infinity Saga. The film also properly introduced Thanos and ended with him successfully gathering the Infinity Stones and snapping half of life in the universe. Aside from the people who were dusted off from the decimation, there were also several characters who were inadvertently killed for the sake of the Mad Titan’s mission. That includes Vision, who died not once but twice. First at the hands of Wanda who was forced to destroy the Mind Stone on his forehead as a last-ditch effort to stop Thanos from collecting all six Infinity Stone and executing his nefarious plan. While this initial plan worked, Thanos was able to rewind time using the Time Stone, resurrecting Vision, and reconstructing the Mind Stone only for him to get it himself.

While talking on his official Instagram account, John Staub shared a concept art he made for Infinity War for the said scene. In it, Wanda is getting ready to destroy the Mind Stone while Thanos, with his minions on his back, approaches them. Check out the image below:

That includes Vision, who died not once but twice. First at the hands of Wanda who was forced to destroy the Mind Stone on his forehead as a last-ditch effort to stop Thanos from collecting all six Infinity Stone and executing his nefarious plan. While this initial plan worked, Thanos was able to rewind time using the Time Stone, resurrecting Vision, and reconstructing the Mind Stone only for him to get it himself. On the heels of WandaVision, however, these moments have been recently revisited, prompting a Marvel Studios artist to reveal an alternate way on how the MCU lovers’ Infinity War goodbye could’ve played out.

Taking it to his official Instagram account, John Staub shared a concept art he made for Infinity War for the said scene. In it, Wanda is getting ready to destroy the Mind Stone while Thanos, with his minions on his back, approaches them. Check out the image below:

Comparing this to what played out on the big screen, there are a couple of differences. Firstly, the whole sequence was set in a relatively isolated place in Wakanda; all the heroes who were on the ground tried their chances against the Mad Titan in an effort to protect Vision and the Mind Stone, but the villain proved to be far too powerful for all of them. Additionally, the destruction of the Mind Stone began when Thanos was quite near them, resulting in Wanda having to slow him down on the one side, while she simultaneously destroyed the Infinity Stone. Overall, however, the whole feel of the sequence was maintained in Infinity War. After Avengers: Infinity War, Wanda, and Vision once again had to bid each other farewell after the hex came down in WandaVision.

Both of them knew it was coming and were simply thankful for being able to live some sort of normal life in Westview. That said, it doesn’t make it any less heartbreaking especially since Wanda also had to separate from her kids, Billy and Tommy. There’s a promise, however, that eventually, they will reunite again in the MCU in the near future.
