Warning – possible spoilers below…
With Captain America: Civil War just a few months away, the rumour mill has started to spin about which characters going to make it to the next stage of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As you may recall, Joss Whedon filmed two death scenes for Avengers: Age of Ultron – one with Quicksilver and one with Hawkeye – as a mis-direct to avoid spoilers getting out. And if this new source is to be believed, the Russo Brothers have done the same thing.
The source (via The Hashtag Show) says that they’ve filmed death scenes for Falcon, Warhammer (formally War Machine) and Scarlet Witch. If the source is to be believed, one of these Avengers will join the already rumoured death of Captain America – and word is that will it be Scarlet Witch who perishes, prompting The Vision to head into space and setting the stage for Avengers: Infinity War.
It should be noted that the video does claim that War Machine’s name has been changed to Warhammer (which was rumoured a few months back), but the official merchandise released by Funko still names the character War Machine.
Captain America: Civil War is set for release on April 29th 2016 in the UK and May 6th 2016 in the States, with Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) directing a cast that includes Marvel Cinematic Universe veterans Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (TheVision), Don Cheadle (James Rhondes/War Machine), Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter) and Frank Grillo (Brock Rumlow/Crossbones) and William Hurt (General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross) alongside new additions Chadwick Boseman (Get on Up) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Daniel Bruhl (Rush) as Baron Zemo, Martin Freeman (Sherlock) and Tom Holland (The Impossible) as Peter Parker/Spider-Man.
