Who Should Die in Avengers 2?

    Joss Whedon mentioned how one of the characters might die in Avengers 2 in 2015.  However, lets not forget that he did allow Agent Coulson to die, but that turned out to be false because the character is set to star in Marvel's Agents of Shield this fall on ABC.  And, the show takes place AFTER the events of the avengers, so yeah....I guess that means death doesn't officially mean a character has to be literally dead in the marvel movie universe, but whatever.

    Having said that though, this raises an interesting point.  Who's going to die in the new avengers movie?  Will it be Iron Man?  I doubt it. He's their top moneymaker.  Plus, Robert Downey Jr. has already signed a two movie extension contract, so I think it's safe to assume he'll be alive to be in Avengers 3 possibly.

    Will it be thor?  I doubt it, but then again, Chris Hemsworth's contract is up after "Thor:  The Dark World", so it's possible they may just kill him off if he's unwilling to sign on for more films.  Of course, they can always just recast the part, or make up some bull s*** excuse about how Thor is busy handling Asgardian s*** or whatever, so he won't be on earth for a very long time.

    Could it be captain america?  Again, that's probable, but unlikely because Chris Evans is signed on for 4  more films, but that might change if cap 2 bombs. 

    Could it be hulk?  Ehh...unlikely because the character did get a lot of positive reception from the last avengers film, but then again, his last two solo movies sucked, so it's possible. 

    Will it be black widow?  Um..I'd say it's probable, but again unlikely due to the fact that she's one of the only few girls on the team, so they're not going to want to get rid of her.   Will it be hawkeye?  I think it's definitely a possibility.  Jeremy Renner, the guy that played hawkeye in the last one, did complain about his character's lack of screen time , and development of his character in the last film.

    Plus, Renner is becoming more of a rising star these days, and with another bourne movie coming out, there's a strong possibility they may just kill off his character considering that hawkeye is kind of the most expendable member of the group if you ask me.

    Will they kill off the two new characters Joss plans to introduce like Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver?  It's probable, but I doubt it.  I mean there has to be a reason those characters are introduced into the movie, and it would seem kind of like a waste to just introduce them for the sake of killing one of  them.  However, I could be dead wrong, and he might just kill one of them anyway for dramatic effect.  Who knows?

    Could it be a shield agent not named Nick Fury or Black Widow?  This is definitely the most probable if you ask me.  Out of all the avengers, it's kind of hard to believe marvel studios would kill off a character that has franchise potential attached to them, so killing off a member of shield might be a likely solution.  You can still build up a shield agent to seem important throughout the film, and still kill them for dramatic effect without eliminating a franchise main character.  However, I guess we'll wait and see.

    What are your thoughts on this?  Who should die in the next avengers movie if it were up to you?

    It wont be any of the characters that appear on merchandizing and certainly not the lady in the skin tight costume.

      Guess you are not familar with Joss Whedon's past work! He is not afraid to kill off beloved characters.

        Yeah but joss whedon doesn't have full creative control over the avengers movies, as he's only allowed as much control as kevin feige allows him to have.  take the first avengers movie for example, he wanted to have the wasp in the first one, but kevin feige told him no and forced him to use black widow instead.  therefore, i doubt he'll kill off any marketable character because kevin won't allow it, and i doubt black widow will die seeing how she's one of the few girls on the team right now in the mcu.

        therefore, i think it'll probably be hawkeye if im honest. he's a minor character anyway, so i doubt it'll hurt their future plans to kill him off.

          I was more referring to his trademark of killing off characters and then resurrecting them, See Buffy, Firefly, Dollhouse, Avengers with Agent Coulsen.

          I agree, It probably will be Hawkeye as Jeremy Renner has been vocal in his displeasure with how Marvel has treated him.

            yeah that's true, but i honestly hope whoever they kill off never comes back to life because that'll just cheapen the concept of death to where the stories will start to seem uber lame over time because whenever a character gets allegedly killed, people will start to catch on saying, "Eh whatever. we all know that person is coming back in another movie...pfft."

            It's one of the main reasons comic books aren't as popular these days because neither marvel or dc has the figurative balls to kill off anyone permanently, to where you can never take their stories as seriously as you used to. 

            It's the same reason why I think Dragonball Z started to die once it hit the Majin Bu saga, as they kept changing the rules about death so many damn times that it just felt like the writers were saying "F**k it! we're going to give our fans a big fat f**k it!"  lol.  Although I'm sure most people in this forum won't know what im talking about as you have to be a huge dbz fan to get what i'm saying in this paragraph..

    I honestly think it will be Iron Man that dies. I have a huge theory about why he dies. I will explain later tonight as I do not have the time to right now lol.

      hi nick, hows it going?  so why exactly do you think iron man is going to be the one that dies though out of curiosity?

        It has been going well. Been really busy. The new webseries is just about started. First few episodes are written, seasons are planned out. We have a bigger cast now too. Close to 20 people.

        I think that Iron Man dies because I think he will essentially be morally obligated to in a way. One of the biggest draws of Ultron in the comics was how he affected Ant-Man. Knowing that he created a being so powerful and so hateful took a toll on him. It is known that Iron Man is the one that will create Ultron probably out of the chunks of armor he blew up at Iron Man 3. Thus I will not be surprised that when Ultron turns on his master and his race that Tony will be faced with a situation towards the end of the film when all hope is lost and Ultron has taken control of his Iron Man suit's that he had rebuilt. I will not be surprised if in this situation that he decides to blow up his suits...with himself inside. However, I see them doing it in a way that it leaves it open as to whether or not he died or not. As if they do not find his body. Then imagine this, when Avengers 3 comes around and again, all hope is lost in the fight against Thanos. Captain America is the lone Avenger standing looking upon a destroyed city and his fallen comrades and right before Thanos delivers the final killing blow to Cap, we hear in the distance AC/DC playing. In comes Tony Stark as Iron Man with reinforcements in the form of the Guardians of the Galaxy. This would bring the films full circle for one.

        I apologize for how horribly this was all written but i just woke up lol.

    As a huge comic book ner...... I mean fan, I have to say that my feeling is that EVERYONE should die by the end of movie, waiting a good 5 years or so and restarting and reinventing the whole franchise into a series of films that no longer insults the fans and our intelligence, which is exactly what the current Marvel Universe has turned in to.

      Although if that doesn't happen, I hope the idea of killing off Iron Man or the Hulk comes to fruition. I don't know if we are as "invested" in many of the others as we are in them when it comes to the bulk of fans...... not just because of the phase one movies, but because..... well, who doesn't love the big green dude?!!?! ............. If these deaths happened and served purpose, as much as I criticize Marvel and their handlings of their own personal little gauntlet of movies, it could be the greatest thing to happen to the movies and could help them tone down the campiness that I feel plagues their films. It would almost make me want to go see the next FEW Marvel movies.............. ALMOST.(and that's still saying something).
