Although certain major Captain America: The Winter Soldier rumors appear to have been a sham, there’s one big new secret that’s out of the bag — unleashed by none other than Marvel’s own marketing team.
The latest TV spot for Joe and Anthony Russo’s sequel features the apparent demise of a fan-favorite character. If you don’t want to know who it is, I suggest you don’t watch the video below:
Based on Cap’s comment about “Fury’s last words,” it sure sounds like the one-eyed S.H.I.E.L.D. director is about to meet his maker. That seems like a pretty big bombshell to drop in a 30-second TV spot, so perhaps there’s more to the story than meets the eye — there almost always is, where Fury’s concerned.
What do you think will happen to Samuel L. Jackson’s long-running Marvel character? Will he really die in The Winter Soldier, or will he fake his death, as Fury has done numerous times in the comics?
