A dialogue from Avengers: Age of Ultron hinted at the end scene of the Infinity War! With Avengers: Infinity War ending with deaths of many of our superheroes, the fans have been speculating a lot about Avengers 4. The fans also have gone back to watch all the old Marvel movies for any bit of information left which may have a direct impact in Avengers 4.
With the massive success of The Avengers, there was a lot of pressure for director Joss Whedon for Age of Ultron. But between that and the pressure from Marvel Studios to include sequences that don’t necessarily have a direct impact on what was happening then and there, the sequel wasn’t that good as its predecessor. Despite that, the movie has helped Kevin Feige’s goal of building a shared cinematic universe, as illustrated by this newest fan find that links Avengers 2 to Infinity War.
Reddit user Modification 102 pointed out a specific part in Age of Ultron that may have directly foretold the Vision’s death. When the android was born with the help of Thor, Captain questioned Thor as to why he helped Stark in building the android. To that Thor answered “I’ve had a vision, a whirlpool that sucks in all hope of life and at its centre, is that” – pointing to the Mind Stone on Vision’s forehead.
Three years after Odin son has this vision, his words came true. As Thanos enters Wakanda through a wormhole opened by Space Stone, his sole mission was to retrieve the Mind stone on the head of Vision, killing him in the process. By then, it was clear that the mad titan would do anything to retrieve all the stones. He didn’t even stop when it came to killing his adopted daughter Gamora.
Since Avengers: Age of Ultron and Avengers: Infinity War belong to the same shared MCU franchise, this kind of foretelling is to be expected. After all, Marvel has been good about planting unimportant bits of sequences in one film, only for that information to mean more down the line and also to keep the fans guessing. But Thor’s line was directly linked to his out of place bath/vision scene in the film – part of the film that didn’t go well with critics and audience both. It’s possible if there were any other information in previous films that foretell what’s to come in Avengers 4. Considering that the Avengers is revisiting the Battle of New York, perhaps it’s best to start looking for clues there.
