Ever since Agent Phil Coulson, played Clark Gregg, seemingly met his demise at the hands of Loki in The Avengers movie, fans have been theorizing that Clark Gregg will appear as The Vision in The Avengers 2.
There is the fact that we never saw Coulson's dead body, as last we saw, the EMT's were working on the agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Then, there is the fact that apparently Clark Gregg has signed on to do six Marvel Studios movies, but has only played in four.
Joss Whedon also didn't exactly deny a Vision appearance in The Avengers 2 when questioned, either.
And now this is where things get good — at least we like to think so.
The Avengers Blu-Ray DVD hits the United States on September 25th, but it's already out in the UK and various other international countries.
Check out the two following images. The first is from the original showing of The Avengers movie, with the second from the UK Blu-Ray.
While Bleeding Cool is less skeptical about a "retcon" than we are, we here at Cosmic Book News are hoping for the best and wish to see Agent Phil Coulson as the Vision in The Avengers 2.
The obvious question regarding the change is: Was the scene edited for UK censorship reasons — or something else?
However, reportedly, the U.S. version is still intact which includes the bloody "death."
But was there a mistake during production of the DVD leaving it in on U.S. editions by accident, as to "retcon" Coulson's "death" for an appearance in The Avengers 2?
We'll find out eventually.
The Avengers 2 assembles May 1, 2015 with Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, and the Guardians of the Galaxy movie on August 1, 2014.
