A few weeks ago The Hashtag Show revealed that Captain America: Civil War will begin and end with a funeral scene. After watching the first trailer, a death during the all-out battle between heroes shouldn’t be all that surprising. Now, The Hashtag Show has provided some viable clues that more than one Avenger could meet their maker in Civil War.
We already know Civil War will be introducing new heroes like Spider-Man and Black Panther to the Avengers fold. As they join the group, however, rumors indicate that there are at up to four characters in danger of dying and/or defecting.
SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT.
The Hashtag Show has already revealed that Captain America: Civil War will begin and end with a funeral. According to the show’s sources, those funerals are for Peggy Carter and Captain America himself. Those are deaths anyone could see coming, but War Machine, Scarlet Witch, and The Falcon may also end up being part of the body count at the end of Civil War. While this isn’t confirmed, the rumors indicate that Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) will be killed while the Avengers battle Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl) towards the end of the film. The Vision (Paul Bettany), who allegedly has a romantic relationship with Scarlet Witch in the film, is rumored to leave Earth at the conclusion of Civil War, which falls in line with the aforementioned death.
Civil War rumors also indicate that of the three potential Avenger deaths, one character will only sustain severe injuries. This character will more than likely be James “Rhody” Rhodes a.k.a. War Machine (Don Cheadle). While it looks like he’s clinging to life in the trailer, his injuries could be what adds more fuel to the fire and causes Iron Man to go no-holds-barred against Captain America and company.
Another Avenger that could end up six feet under is Sam Wilson a.k.a. The Falcon (Anthony Mackie). This outcome doesn’t seem likely, however, since the film is said to include a scene after Captain America’s death where three characters hold his vibranium shield – one of them being The Falcon.
Captain America: Civil War kicks off Marvel’s Phase Three and picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo have gone on record describing the events of Civil War as something that they don’t think audiences are prepared for. Whatever the film has in store, there’s little doubt that it’s going to rock the Marvel cinematic universe when it lands in theaters May 6.[Geek Tyrant]
