Marvel Studios has released a new TV spot for Captain America: The Winter Soldier that offers a big spoiler many fans saw coming, which involves the death of a beloved character. The death was previously implied in the Super Bowl trailer and TV spot, but now it is confirmed! You can also check out the Japanese poster below the TV spot which features Falcon (who has yet to get his own character poster). But be warned, there is more about this big revelation after the poster, so stop reading now if you don't want to be spoiled.
The big question that remains is what does the death of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) mean for Avengers: Age of Ultron? The actor has been confirmed to appear in the sequel, although it's possible he could appear in flashbacks. If he does come back from the grave, he won't be the first Marvel character to do so. Clark Gregg's Agent Coulson was killed by Loki in Marvel's The Avengers, only to be resurrected for the ABC series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
Its possible that Nick Fury has simply gone to Tahiti, providing more motivation for Steve and Natasha to get the job done. Its not the first time he's applied such tactics. And its odd that Marvel would give this away in what is only the second TV spot.
Samuel L. Jackson signed a nine-picture deal with Marvel Studios, and he has appeared in six movies so far, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel's The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. With three more movies left under this pact, it seems unlikely that Captain America: The Winter Soldier will mark the last time we see Nick Fury on the big screen, but we'll have to wait and see.
