9. Steve Rogers Although on screen death should really be motivated by narrative choices, sometimes the business of the movies gets in the way. Like many of the central stars, Chris Evans is over halfway through a multi-picture deal; he originally signed on for six movies, which will wind up being three stand-alone movies and three Avengers (that brief Thor: The Dark World cameo doesn't count). And while Marvel have been able to renegotiate deals with Robert Downey, Jr., twice convincing the actor to sign onto more movies (at first the two Avengers sequels, then for a role in Captain America 3), Evans has made his intentions to quit acting clear, making an extension incredibly unlikely. While this may seem like a major issue, it really isn't. In the comics the Captain America role has been taken on by various other heroes when Rogers was otherwise preoccupied, most famously Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier, who held the shield when the original hero was 'dead'. And it just so happens Sebastian Stan is only two movies in a nine-movie contract. It's almost like Marvel had it planned. When Will He Die: Many are predicting Rogers will die in Captain America: Civil War, mirroring the comic book's climax, but as Evans' contract doesn't run out until Avengers 3, expect the assassination to be subverted and him to finally croak at the hands of Thanos.
