SPOILER WARNING: Potentially huge spoilers for “Captain America: Civil War” follow.
A new unconfirmed rumor posits that, as commonly speculated, the opening scene of “Captain America: Civil War” will be a funeral for Peggy Carter, who was of course showing symptoms of memory loss/Alzheimer’s in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” But that’s not the only funeral in the movie, according to YouTube’s The Hashtag Show.
The Hashtag Show — who previously reported on Iron Fist’s casting details and the possible story arc for The Vision in “Civil War — states that according to unnamed sources, the film will end on a funeral scene for Steve Rogers himself, who will have lost the “Civil War” by the end of the movie, and surrender himself to the government in exchange for the freedom of his allies. It is when Rogers surrenders that he is reportedly killed.
From here, the report says that there were scenes shot for the movie where three actors pick up Captain America’s shield — Sebastian Stan (Bucky/The Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon) and Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter). While Bucky and Falcon have of course taken on the identity of Captain America in the comic books, this would be the first time we’ve seen Carter — or any female character for that matter — become the Star-Spangled Avenger.
To back up the rumor, Latino Review points to the “Civil War” trailer, which features a shot in its final few seconds where Bucky holds Iron Man’s face and — according to some fans’ interpretations — mouths “Steve’s dead.” They indicate that Bucky will blame Tony Stark for Steve’s death.
While none of the claims are for certain, there are some parallels to Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting’s “Death of Captain America” Marvel Comics storyline, which spun directly out of the events of Mark Miller and Steve McNiven’s comic book “Civil War.”
