Re: Who would you let Joss Whedon kill in Avengers 2?
Nick Fury would be a good move for the reasons listed above. I like the idea of the Avengers having to define themselves without SHIELD.
And yeah, Hawkeye.
I could see them killing Iron Man off when RDJ finally has enough and decides to stop doing these movies, or when he becomes too expensive for Marvel's comfort. Recasting would be a mistake.
