I’m pretty sure other things are going on in this new footage from Civil War. Perhaps even delightful things! But The Vision is wearing a goddamn sweater in one of them, and now all capacity for critical thought has escaped me.
The wonderful sight of a synthezoid superhero in smart casual clothing is actually a delightful nod to an ability Vision has in the comics for years — he can project clothing on his person at will, so he’s not walking around in the robo-nude and making people uncomfortable. (Let me tell you he could rock a turtleneck.) Vision did it briefly in Age of Ultron, when he fashioned himself a swishy cape, but now he’s upgraded to full-on clothing, to become the most fashionable android on the planet.
But mainly, the sweater reminds me of the current — and incredible — Vision comic book by Tom King, Gabriel Hernandez Walta and Jordie Bellaire, in which Vision dresses like this:
Amazing. Check The Sweater out in all its glory below, in a clip that also features Tony Stark and Steve Rogers arguing over some boring stuff that isn't related to Vision in a sweater, so who cares really?[video provider="youtube" id="HWxGzxMAGX0" size="xlarge" align="center"]
That's not all when it comes to new Civil War footage today, either. Below there's another clip of Scott Lang enthusiastically introducing himself to Captain America, and two videos worth of behind the scenes B-Roll from the film.[video provider="youtube" id="52ebc-f8t8E" size="xlarge" align="center"] [video provider="youtube" id="e2O6Q1_bxTs" size="xlarge" align="center"]
Sadly, neither of these videos feature Vision in a sweater.
Captain America: Civil War hits theatres April 28.
