This post contains mild Avengers: Infinity War spoilers. Readers, ye be warned!
Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen have been shooting Avengers: Infinity War in Edinburgh, Scotland for a while now, but the two haven't been spotted in front of the camera together. That is, until now. The latest set photos offer glimpses of a scene they’re doing together, and it's a fairly romantic one.
E! News leaked the photos, along with a rundown of the scene that’s based on an eyewitness account. The scene, which was filmed "eight or nine times", begins with Vision using his powers to open a window curtain. Scarlet Witch subsequently appears by his side, they get very close, and they finally share a kiss.
Of course, the two kissing in Avengers: Infinity War doesn't come as a big surprise, considering their comic book history and the way their relationship progressed through Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War. But there's a more interesting detail that needs to be mentioned: Bettany isn’t wearing his Vision makeup in the scene! Check out the set photos below.
This could mean one of two things. Either Vision has somehow gained a new shape-shifting ability that allows him to transform into purely human form, or such a transformation has taken place after the loss of the Infinity Stone on his forehead.
A brief video from the Avengers: Infinity War set surfaced online last month. It shows Bettany's character under attack by a couple of unidentified characters. Many are speculating that they’re members of the Black Order, a band of ruthless aliens who serve Thanos. They might have removed the gem from Vision's forehead prior to his tender moment with Scarlet Witch. If that’s the case, he’s still able to manipulate the window curtain, so he clearly hasn't lost his powers.
