(Warning - the following contain major SPOILERS for a whole bunch of previously released Marvel movies, along with some SPOILER-ish speculation about a handful of soon-to-be-released films. Proceed with caution, and all that...)

Now, there are a fair few trends, tropes and tendencies that can be found in pretty much every superhero movie around. Someone is, for instance, likely to get punched. Similarly, odds are there'll be some sort of slightly ridiculous costume, some kind of love interest in peril, and - with a few, non-adapted exceptions - some kind of neat referencing of the original comic-book on which the movie is based.

One of the most notable recurring trends - at least in the Marvel-themed end of the superhero spectrum - is a whole lot darker than that, though. As GeekxGirls' Wandering Dana has pointed out (in visual form), though:

There's a Dark Secret Hiding Behind Pretty Much Every Marvel Movie...

Specifically, this one:

Or, in other words?

NOBODY EVER, EVER STAYS DEAD IN COMIC-BOOKS, OR COMIC-BOOK MOVIES...

Or, in other words...

Expect Avengers: Age of Ultron's Quicksilver to be back in a year or two...

...The Amazing Spider-Man's Gwen Stacy to be rebooted within the next decade...

...Yellowjacket to return in time to join the Masters of Evil...

...Frigga to turn out to be alive after Thor: Ragnarok...

...Captain America to die in Civil War, and then come right back to life again in time for Infinity War, Pt 2...

...Wolverine to 'die' at the end of X-Men: Apocalypse, only to turn up again in the post-credits sequence...

And, of course, for Spider-Man's uncle Ben to turn out to be very much alive (and surprisingly young and sexy)

OK, maybe not so much that last one - but even so...

Marvel Superheroes REALLY Don't Like Staying Dead

Which is why they drive us nuts...but not really.

What do you reckon, though?
