12 Characters Who Will Probably Die In 2014's Biggest Movies

We're looking for what we can speculate or deduce from trailers and rumours so far.

2014 is shaping up to be a huge year for movies: we've got the Marvel Cinematic Universe looking to further cement its box office dominance, mega-budget movies from art-house directors, reboots of classic franchises, and sequels we've been waiting forever to see. It's fun to speculate on what surprises they might bring, and specifically, who might be shuffling off their mortal coil. It's worth noting that deaths we know for sure have been deliberately excluded (sorry, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), and when an actor outright says that they're signed on for future films (like William Fichtner as Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), they're also being given a pass. We're looking for what we can speculate or deduce from trailers and rumours so far. Perhaps one lingering image suggests one character might meet their end, or in an interview an actor may have let slip a subtle comment which might suggest something. Maybe there's been a leak or test screenings which have already let the cat out of the bag? These 12 deaths are probably coming our way this year, but if you've heard any tips of your own or have a big hunch, feel free to let loose in the comments below! Of course, given how much of this speculation stems from conjecture, rumours and leaks, there may be spoilers ahead for some of the year's biggest movies!
