Potential spoiler in the latest Captain America: The Winter Soldier TV spot
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER has been called out for spoilers in the trailers we have seen so far, specifically related to the identity of The Winter Soldier himself. For fans of the comics, the identity of the metal-armed villain has been known for years. But, those who are purely indoctrinated to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I can see why this may be knowledge they want to see revealed on the big screen.
With that in mind, the latest TV spot for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER contains a line of dialogue specifically mentioning the fate of a character that some folks probably were not expecting. So, if you don't want any details, skip the video and the rest of the article below.
So, if you watched the commercial then you probably heard Steve Rogers mention Nick Fury's "last words". Based on the glimpses of Fury injured and his car being destroyed by The Winter Soldier, it seems pretty apparent that Samuel L. Jackson's character is going to "die". Or, at the very least, he will disappear until the end of the film since Jackson still has multiple films remaining on his contract with Marvel.
We have heard for quite some time that the events of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER will not only shake up the film franchises but also ABC's AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. television series. With the next Marvel film slated to be GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, I would not be shocked if we didn't see Nick Fury return until THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON next Summer. Or, we could just be reading too much into this snippet of dialogue. I, for one, think killing of a character as beloved as Nick Fury would certainly shake things up. But, being like the Marvel comic books themselves, no one ever really stays dead.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER hits theaters on April 4, 2014.
