Trust the Mumbai Police for its witty takes on everyday police-related matters through its official Twitter handle. Many are of the opinion that the Mumbai Police has aced the game of sending across important message on road safety and security on social media through smartly conceptualised posters or memes.
It didn’t come as a surprise, therefore, when the Mumbai Police came up with yet another message in which it claimed that the force was ever-alert in the security of the Maximum City. And they did that with a meme that had a major character from the ‘Avengers: Infinity Wars’ in it.
The film, which will release in theatres in India on Friday, 27 April, is one of the most anticipated movies around the world with pre-booking tearing through the roof even in India.
But in its quest to remain at the pinnacle of social media game, the Mumbai Police may have made an ‘egregious’ error. They gave away a spoiler! At least that’s what Twitter users are claiming.
In its tweet, the Mumbai Police juxtaposed an image of Vision with that of members of the police force. It is the text on the image and the tweet which has raised some eyebrows.
“A vision that will live forever! #InfinitySafety for Mumbai,” reads the tweet.
The meme carries the text “Some Visions May or May Not Die! But Our Vision Of Your Safety Shall live till infinity”.

In the movie and the comic books, Vision – a secondary character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – joins the heroes (Iron Man, Captain America, Black Panther, Black Widow and the like) in the battle against Thanos.
Vision also carries one of the Infinity Stones – the Mind Stone, to be precise. In a trailer of ‘Avengers: Infinity Wars’, Vision is shown writhing in pain as Thanos tries to tear off the Mind Stone from his head.
Many film observers have said that Vision is one of the characters who have a high chance of getting killed off in the Infinity Wars.
So did the Mumbai Police actually have a ‘vision’ about Vision? Or did they merely latch on to the popular wave and numerous speculations surrounding the movie? One has to see the film now to know it.
