According to That Hashtag Show as quoted by Screen Rant, the Russo Brothers, Anthony and Joe Russo, who are directing “Captain America: Civil War,” have shot death scenes for three more characters apart from Captain America’s.
That Hashtag Show had claimed through the Screen Rant article that “Captain America: Civil War” will both open and close with funeral scenes, the latter which will be of Steve Rogers/Captain America.
A video posted by That Hashtag Show now claims that apart from Steve Rogers, death scenes for War Machine (Don Cheadle), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) have also been shot by the directing duo. However, only one of those three characters’ deaths will appear in the theatrical release, while James Rhodes/War Machine, will be left severely injured.
Steve Rogers’ death may not come as a huge shock to Marvel fans because Captain America did die in the Marvel comics “Civil War” on which the third “Captain America” movie is based. However, seeing as James Rhodes might be safe for the while, either the Falcon or the Scarlet Witch will die in the movie.
The contracts for most of the original cast of The Avengers were supposed to end at the conclusion of the two-part “Avengers: Infinity War” according to Screen Rant. It thus makes perfect sense to give proper send-offs to the original Marvel superheroes like Captain America.
That Hashtag Show also states that during the last act of “Civil War,” an Avenger will die when everybody comes together to fight the villain Baron Zemo. The show guesses it will be the Scarlet Witch.
Iron Man will, at some point, have to die too, passing the baton to newer characters. In fact unless major characters die, the villains will never become a legitimate threat. For instance, in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” the death of Han Solo at the hands of his own son Kylo Ren made the latter a bigger villain for having killed one of the most beloved characters in the “Star Wars” franchise.
Another Screen Rant article quotes Joe Russo in saying that stakes will be high in “Civil War” and will be raised even higher in the “Infinity War” movies. Russo was quoted by the website as follows:
“There will be a price to pay in Civil War. There will be characters who suffer in that movie and will come out and never be the same again and in “Avengers: Infinity War,” the stakes will be raised to a whole new level and people should expect to be shocked when they see the movies.”
Such questions will be answered when “Captain America: Civil War” hits cinemas beginning April 27 this year.
