      The Vision is permanently gone. That's bittersweet for me. Bitter because I love the character but sweet because I was never really happy with the movie version, I think mainly because he wasn't given the amount of screen time that would have been necessary to do his character justice. Of course he has to be gone, because the Mind Stone had to be returned to the past.

    ***He isn't. Him and Wanda have a Disney + series coming soon called Wanda Vision. He is an android...he can be rebuilt at any time as long as you have the minds to do it. Shuri was gone and Tony was not in the state of mind to go about doing this. He will return.

The truth may be a bit nuanced. Nobody but the creators know for sure, of course, but here's an article from three days ago that speculates a bit:

In any case, the Mind Stone was a big part of the MCU Vision. I'm not convinced he would be the same person without it.


      Sad that Pietro wasn't brought back. There doesn't seem to be a plot reason for that. I guess Marvel just doesn't want Pietro in their movies.

    ***He died YEARS before the events of this movie or the last movie came about. The Avengers are not just going to go back and bring back whoever. Thats like saying they should go back and bring back the people Wanda accidentally killed in the beginning of Civil War.

But Pietro was Wanda's brother. I would have expected that to put him in a special category. Apparently not the case, however.


      Captain Marvel was tremendous. See why I said she was Marvel's Superman? I was surprised yet moved by the scene near the end, where all the heroes who stood up to join her were women. What a girl power moment! And it cements in everyone's minds what Captain Marvel means to the MCU. She is the great central rallying point for girl power. Not to mention the fact that her movie has joined the billion dollar club.

    ***That scene was a little forced. Every single woman super hero just happened to all be gathered together on this one point in the entire battlefield? Okay. Marvel made it over the top obvious they were trying to please a certain demographic with this scene.

True. No argument there. I was still moved by it. Sometimes I can bring the meta right into the viewing experience and integrate the two in my heard seamlessly. This was one of those times.
