Re: Who would you let Joss Whedon kill in Avengers 2?
Please not Hawkeye. 16 minutes of screen time in the MCU would be a slap in the face to all his fans. If he dies in Avengers 3? So be it. But he deserves to be a bigger part of the story this time - and not just to die. Not to mention, Hawkeye's death would only bother Hill, Fury, and Widow. The other four barely know him.
As far as cheaping Iron Man's death, they could easily do a death scene like Bucky's in Captain America. Where he dies, but there will be a way to explain how he didn't.
A character like Cap dying hurts the whole team (he was the leader afterall). Bucky can replace him as well, though Chris Evans was made for Captain America.
Hopefully they just kill Falcon. I couldn't care less about him - and he'd have a bigger effect then Hawkeye on Widow and Cap.
