  5. "Framtiden vil vise hva vi ka…

"Framtiden vil vise hva vi kan gjøre."

Translation:The future will show what we can do.

This is the first and only time I've seen "vil" meaning "will" rather than "wants to". In what contexts does this happen?

Also, "Framtiden skal vise hva vi kan gjøre" works as well, right?


If you use "skal vise" in your example it would be understood, but it doesn't really work.

Somebody more into grammar will have to answer about the use of "vil".
