Captain America: Civil War boasts one of the biggest casts for any Marvel movie, with almost every major star from Avengers: Age of Ultron showing up, along with a slew of other new characters. With a cast this big, all of whom are battling among each other, it's clear that a few of these familiar heroes and/or villains may die in the movie. Comicbook.com reports that, during a Q&A session at Wizard World New Orleans, star Frank Grillo joked that he'd like to "kill Captain America," which director Joe Russo had a unique response to.
"We may or may not have filmed that scene, though. She asked about a scene you haven't done."
There have been rumors that Cap may die in Captain America: Civil War, but then again, Chris Evans is still expected to return for Avengers: Infinity War Part I in 2018 and Avengers: Infinity War - Part II in 2019. While no deaths were officially confirmed during the panel, star Anthony Mackie teased that all of the superheroes "come out," with the director adding, "Some body bags." Hayley Atwell, Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner were also present at the Q&A session.
Earlier in the panel, the director did describe the film as a "gut punch," and that fans might not be prepared for what happens in the movie, so it's completely possible that Cap may meet his untimely demise in the movie. This could also set up characters like The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) or The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) taking over as the new Cap, which they have both done in the Marvel Comics.
Set for release in the United States on May 6, 2016, Captain America: Civil War is directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (Captain America: The Winter Soldier). The film brings back Chris Evans as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America along with Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch. These heroes will be joined by a number of new characters and returning supporting characters as well.
After his debut in Marvel's Ant-Man, Paul Rudd will make his first appearance alongside the Avengers as Scott Lang/Ant-Man in Captain America: Civil War. The film also includes outstanding additional cast members, including Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel Brühl, Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, William Hurt as General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross and Martin Freeman. Marvel's Captain America: Civil War is produced by Marvel Studios' president, Kevin Feige, with Louis D'Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.
Captain America: Civil War will kick off the Marvel Phase Three slate, which is jam-packed with 10 highly-anticipated movies.
