With [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409) only eight months away, well not only, fans are trying to get their minds on anything Civil War related. All this search however can lead to expectations. Now, expectations aren't necessarily bad because they can build hype, but when expectations are all we look forward to, then we set ourselves up for disappointment (you can literally apply this to anything in life). Avengers: Age of Ultron is a prime example of expectation v. reality, but lets not get into that. So, I have compiled some expectations I have heard people have that should NOT be expected at all in Captain America: Civil War.

1. Spider-man Has a Major Role

Nice going Peter.
Nice going Peter.

Spider-man did have a major role in the comics which was, aside from changing sides and being part of the battle, revealing his identity to the public. Since the Spider-man of the MCU is starting out, the revelation of his identity will not occur, nor will he be part of the battle since he is said to only have a cameo (which has finished already). My guess is we will be seeing him either join the one of the Avenger teams (I'll get into later) or just see him swinging around New York.

2. Black Panther Joins the Avengers

Black Panther, unlike Spider-man, will have an equal role like his fellow superheroes Cap and Ironman. We know that his role will gravitate towards a third-party candidate according to Kevin Feige:

"In the case of Civil War, we needed a third party, we needed a character who wasn’t on either Captain America or Iron Man’s side, which is why we went, 'You know what? We’re doing a Black Panther movie, but it would actually be smart to have him fill this role we need in Civil War and introduce him here first.'"

Now, in the end of Captain America: Civil War, I believe the MCU will follow the comics and split the Avengers into two teams, one led with Ironman as the S.H.I.E.L.D. Executive or something along those lines, and the other led by Buck Barnes as Captain America. I believe Black Panther will join neither of those teams and will focus on protecting his nation Wakanda. Now, Black Panther will join the Avengers at some point, probably Infinity Wars, but not in Civil War is what I am saying.


3. Multiple Deaths

Aside from the obvious death of Captain America, we shouldn't expect many deaths. Unlike the comics, THIS IS THE MCU, which has a track-record of faking deaths, and also the fact that deaths in the movies should matter more so it wouldn't makes sense for someone like Black Widow or Hawkeye to die (that's costly for Marvel Studios). Hence, I believe the imminent 'death' of Captain America should be the ONLY one we should expect to see. Now I am not saying someone like Crossbones is not going to die because he's next on my "Possible Death List", what I am saying is don't expect any other Avenger falling. If I am wrong, well, surprise!
