In just a few short months, Marvel will kick off both Phase Three and the summer movie season with Captain America: Civil War, which will kick things off with a big bang. Last week, directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo teased that this blockbuster-to-be may feature the death of Captain America (Chris Evans) himself, which falls in line with rumors we've heard for the past few months. Today we have a new report from The Hashtag Show, which claims that the filmmakers have actually shot three more death scenes to throw fans off, but only one of them may be used in the actual film. Take a look at their report below.
"A few weeks ago, we reported that Captain America will be dying at the end of Civil War, but our source tells us he won't be the only one. The Russos shot three death scenes in Civil War besides Cap's in Civil War, and they are the following: War Machine (Don Cheadle), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and The Falcon (Anthony Mackie). But this doesn't mean that all three will be used. If you remember during the production of Avengers: Age of Ultron, two death scenes were shot for misdirection, Hawkeye and Quicksilver, with the latter actually dying. Our source also told us that, while one of the three will actually die, another will be severely wounded during the middle of the film, when the teams are still opposed. Our guess is that Rhoadey will be the one who is severely wounded, as seen in the trailer. This could provoke Stark's further dispute with Captain America. During the last act of the film, an Avenger will die when the team sort of comes together to fight Baron Zemo. Our guess here is that it's going to be Scarlet Witch and this is going to be the reason why Vision leaves Earth and goes into space. We're speculating that The Falcon's death scene is a red herring, and Sam Wilson will be safe at the end of the film to play a larger role in Infinity War."
Of course, this report hasn't been confirmed by Marvel, and we don't expect it to be until Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6. Still, their deductive logic does make a lot of sense, since there have been rumors that The Falcon and/or The Winter Soldier could take over the Captain America mantle after Steve Rogers passes away. It has long been rumored that this adventure will set the stage for Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Avengers: Infinity War - Part II, and if Cap does in fact die in this movie, it would certainly make sense to keep The Falcon around.
In related news, one of the several new characters Captain America: Civil War will introduce is the new Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland. The character will first debut in this movie before going on to star in a stand alone reboot, produced by both Marvel and Sony Pictures. Unfortunately, we haven't gotten our first look at the new Spidey yet, and the Russos revealed during a Q&A with Collider that one reason for the secrecy is that they didn't want to upset the delicate nature of the studios' Spidey deal, which was still being hammered out.
"Part of the reason of what was so secretive was that the deals were always lagging slightly behind how we were using the character. We were always in danger of upsetting the deal-there were still sensitive issues going on between the two studios that they needed to agree on. When we were casting Tom Holland, when we were screen-testing him for the movie there was a whole very involved kind of process that was under the radar and secretive, because of the fact that it was still a sensitive business issue. The reason why I preface that is we're still kind of in 'deal zone' to be honest with you. The reason why we still won't talk about [the costume] is that Marvel and Sony still have to work out what uses they have for the character, on a promotional level, on a commercial level. There's still complications as far as that goes that involves business deals."
Take a look at the Russos' full hour-long Q&A session where they delve into several different aspects of Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War Part I, Avengers: Infinity War - Part II and much more. Who do you think will actually die when Captain America: Civil War hits the big screen on May 6? Chime in with your thoughts and stay tuned for more details.
