Don't expect the same kind of guarded secrecy surrounding Captain America: Civil War as we saw on Disney's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The movie is based on source material that has been readily available since 2006. And while we've heard that this big screen version doesn't adhere too closely to what was on the printed page, The Hashtag Show has revealed that one of the bigger shockers remains intact. We suggest you stop reading right now if you want to avoid any and all Spoilers.
The entire third act of the movie has seemingly been revealed, though Marvel and Disney have in no way confirmed what you are about to read. And why would they? In Captain America: Civil War, we'll be held witness to two major deaths. The movie opens on the funeral of Agent Peggy Carter. This was revealed earlier in the year by several set photos that leaked during production. This sequence will enable Steve Rogers and Sharon Carter to catch up, hinting at a possible future romance. The second funeral that will be shown during the last act of the movie is the big new reveal that most people probably don't want to know. You still have time to turn back! Read on at your own peril.
if this latest rumor from The Hashtag Show is right on the money, Steve Rogers is going to be killed off at the end of Captain America: Civil War. Towards the end of the movie, Steve will sign a deal with the One World Government in order to spare the lives of his allies who followed him into battle, fighting against the Sokovia Accords. Once he surrenders, the government has him killed. This, as true believers know, follows the same exact storyline seen in the Civil War comic books written by Ed Brubaker.
In 'The Death of Captain America" storyline that played out in the Marvel comics, Rogers was assassinated by Crossbones. We know Crossbones is in the movie, but earlier rumors suggested that he is part of the big action sequence that opens the movie and not Cap's death. In this storyline, Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stan, becomes Captain America for a short period of time. Apparently, three different Captain America: Civil War endings have been shot, each featuring a different actor taking on Steve Roger's superhero mantle. Those actors are said to be Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie (Falcon) and Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter). In the comics, both The Winter Soldier and Falcon have become Captain America. But this will be a first if Sharon Carter assumes the name.
Falcon and The Winter Soldier are both expected to carry on the title in future movies. But it's speculated that Marvel wants to throw a huge curve ball by introducing a Female Captain instead. And it's being called a smart way to generate some buzz. It's also possible that Marvel and Disney insiders floated this information into the public to gauge their response, and see who fans truly want to see carry on in Steve Rogers' shoes. If Marvel goes with Sharon Carter, this will be the first major live-action gender-swapped superhero in movie history.
One of the big moments in the Civil War comic book comes when Bucky Barnes blames Tony Stark for Steve's death. In the trailer released last month, many believe that Barnes is mouthing 'Steve's Dead' when he grabs Iron Man's face during their big title bout. That has never been confirmed, and you'll have to rewatch the trailer again for yourself to see if that holds any weight. Chris Evans still has two more movies on his Marvel contract, so we're not sure how that will be handled if this is indeed the case wit the storyline.
After another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps, one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. So, who will pick up the mantle of Captain America in Civil War? We may have to wait a few more months before the big reveal is dropped. So, does this mean Chris Evans isn't in Avengers: Infinity War Part I?
