Actor Chris Evans just revealed a major spoiler in the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War” movie – someone is going to die.
In an interview with Extra on the set of his upcoming movie, Evans was asked what scene they filmed that day. “A little bit of stunt stuff. Some walk out, some don’t,” the actor said.

Inquisitr recalled that in a “Captain America: Civil War” sneak peak, which was released at the D23 expo last August, it hinted a funeral in the sequel.
There have been speculations that it could be James Rhodes (Don Cheadle). The first trailer released for the movie hinted at this possibility as it showed Rhodes heavily injured in the war.
In an interview with NY Daily News, Cheadle discussed his character and said: “It does look bad for Rhodey.” But the actor would not confirm if Team Iron Man member is really dead.
Cheadle, however, said he appreciates that fans are worried about his character’s fate. “I’m on Twitter, so I’ve gotten a few people going, ‘Rhodey better not be dead, son. I’m going to be so mad.’ Or ‘I’m done with this thing if Rhodey’s dead’…But that’s cool, I like that people get so upset about it,” he told Daily News. “I like that in a Marvel movie people are able to evoke such emotion,” he added.
The death that Evans was teasing could also his character. Captain America/Steve Rogers would die later in the Marvel Comics because of the events of the Civil War, Movie Pilot noted.
Evans even joked about this possibility in the interview. “I’m being replaced! Chris Pine is the new Cap,” he said.
It was also earlier reported that a frame from the latest trailer of the Marvel movie seems to show Winter Soldier’s arm detached from his body. According to Cinema Blend, the frame seemed to show “a possibly dead Bucky Barnes on the floor” behind Captain America and Iron Man.
Meanwhile, Inquisitr added that since directors Joe and Anthony Russo had warned of a controversial ending, a major character death could provide the conclusion that they had planned.
In an interview with Empire, the Russos said: “In Civil War, we’re going to change the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Psychology, and it’s an extreme shift. Winter Soldier was a political thriller; this is a psychological thriller. [There’s a] very dramatic ending that will be controversial for a lot of people,” the directors said.
“Captain America: Civil War” is hit theaters on May 6, 2016.
