‘Avengers 2 Age Of Ultron’ Iron Man, Captain America, Hawkeye Or Nick Fury-Which Character Will Die?

By Staff Writer | October 17, 2013 12:24 PM EDT

 

'Avengers' head honcho Joss Whedon knows that in this day and age, your statements remain forever in the internet. Besides, the Avengers need someone to 'avenge.'

Thus, when he said that "Avengers: Age of Ultron" will see a death of a major character, the citizens of social media will mull over it no end. The prediction game is always fun, with or without Vegas odds.

An in-depth analysis was conducted in What Culture, and the reasoning is fairly sound. Exploring the comics world in tandem with harsh realities (read: contracts and salary negotiations), the question must be asked: Which character will die?

Nick Fury - Comic/Movie World: Nick Fury has been replaced by Maria Hill as SHIELD director due to a mysterious and extended disappearance. Will Whedon use this arc..or will he kill him off? The effects won't be as significant, as the Avengers have already assembled..and Coulson is 'alive' again. Contracts:  Samuel L. Jackson has the longest contract (nine films allegedly) but that doesn't exempt him. He can make prequels, or resurrect a la Coulson.

Hawkeye - Comic/Movie World: The most underdeveloped character and most maligned (bow and arrows vs aliens, really?) Jeremy Renner knows it and he has gone public (even to SNL). He has already died in the comics before. Whedon declared an increased role. It figures, as the 'sacrificial lamb' is an upgrade over 'sixth wheel.' Contracts: Renner was not part of the publicized salary standoff, and he has already headlined other films. No reason to stay on for long.

Captain America - Comic/Movie World: Marvel made "The Death Of Captain America" a cash cow (similar to the death of Superman). The Winter Soldier could take the reins. It has happened in the comics. Contracts: Chris Evans was part of the standoff, and if Cap is replaceable, there isn't a reason to hold on for a higher price.

Iron Man - Comic/Movie World: Not in the comics, but in the trailer, he seems responsible for Ultron's creation. Will he make the  sacrifice again and offer himself up to save mankind (especially if he's responsible for it)? Contracts: No more Iron Man extension, and signed only until Avengers 3. Downey ain't a spring chicken anymore. Tech genius Hank Pym is in the horizon, and the cast rumors have him played by a charming wisecracker, either Paul Rudd or Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who has a sense of humor himself). This will be the hardest hit, if it happens.

Place your bets, we won't collect until May 1, 2015.
