Captain America: Civil War looks to be the most dramatic Marvel film up to date. With drama, there of course is going to be death! The brand new Civil War trailer may have shed some light as to who may meet their maker! (oh and there was Spider-Man). If you haven't seen the trailer, stop fooling around and take a look!
That was absolutely terrific, this was the perfect trailer for Civil War in my opinion and with great timing, BvS was on a role but now everyone is back to talking about Marvel! This trailer gave us some insight and made me think, just who is going to die in Civil War? There are so many characters that could die, I'll be going through each character and rating their likeliness of dying! Let's get to it!
I will not include Avengers who are set to have solo films release in the future*
Captain America, the darling of Marvel, has been rumored to meet his untimely death at the end of Civil War. From the image from the 2nd trailer above, that theory seems a lot more likely. A lot of Marvel pundits believe that Cap will die, and the shield will be passed down to either Bucky or Falcon, until he is brought back to life in Infinity War. If he were to die however I don't think it would be the end of Chris Evan's run, I fully expect him to return during Infinity War!
Likeliness of Dying: 7/10
In every trailer that we have seen so far, Tony Stark looks beat to hell! Donning a black eye, what seems to be a broken arm, and a scene where Cap is just giving him a pounding! Tony Stark is one of the biggest draws of the Marvel films, mainly due in part to Robert Downey Jr's acclaimed performance! This is a character that I personally am not ready to see die off, but then again I wouldn't be surprised if he does.
Likeliness of Dying: 6/10
Ever since the first trailer released, we all have thought that War Machine is going to die, but I don't think this is the case. I definitely think Marvel is pulling the old one-two on us and distracting from a much bigger death at hand. It wouldn't make much sense to show the death of War Machine, or maybe, thats what they want us to think....
Likeliness of Dying: 3/10
This is interesting because a huge majority of Civil War will be about the bounty put on the Winter Soldier for his actions in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Crossbones will be on the hunt for Bucky and his life will be in serious danger. I think Bucky is one of the main characters that should be considered on death row so to speak. He is the character that I think is most likely to die, it would be devastating to Cap as well.
Likeliness of Dying: 9/10
Falcon is slowly becoming one of the best characters in the Marvel universe, mainly due in part to how awesome Anthony Mackie is at portraying him. His new suit looks pretty sick and I can't wait to see him in action. Falcon, being one of Cap's best friends, is someone that I don't believe has a high likelihood of dying. He is just starting to hit his stride and I think killing him off now would be a huge mistake! Hopefully my speculation is right, because I surely am not ready for him to fly away!
Likeliness of Dying: 1/10
Black Widow has been viewed by any as horribly underused, and with good reason. It definitely would be awesome to see some backstory on Natasha and I don't think killing he would be a smart move to expand on that history. She is vital to the team in that she is an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D (former) and she has great experience in the field. The relationship between her and Bruce Banner also needs to be expanded on more so I don't see her dying in this one.
Likeliness of Dying: 0/10
On the subject of Black Widow, her fellow S.H.I.E.L.D agent Hawkeye is someone that I just can't see dying. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, we got a lot of backstory on the character of Hawkeye, revealing that he has a wife and kids, and they really expanded on his role. He became one of the best characters in the Avengers and I don't think they would kill him this early. Jeremy Renner does a fantastic job and I think he will stick around for a while longer.
Likeliness of Dying: 1/10
Scarlett Witch burst onto the scene with her brother Quicksilver (RIP) during Avengers: Age of Ultron and was really awesome! She is a really destructive force that is a huge advantage to anyone who has her on their side. With her just recently joining the team, I don't think the idea of her death is one that is very likely. I love Elizabeth Olsen, and I would be crushed if she dies in Civil War, even though it isn't likely.
Likeliness of Dying: 2/10
Vision is yet another character that was just introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron, He is one however that I think is a bit more likely to die. The way Vision was created, he is powered by the mind stone, one of the 6 Infinity Gems. We all know that Infinity War will bring us Thanos trying to collect all of those gemes, which will likely lead to Vision's death, at least temporarily. I could see a scenario where Vision its somehow defeated and thew extract the stone from him, setting up the completion of the Infinity Gauntlet!
Likeliness of Dying: 5/10
