This. Odds are, nobody of the main 5 is going to PERMANENTLY die. Even Coulson got brought back. That said, I certainly can see Hawkeye die at the end of the movie where he and Cap have this rivalry over Black Widow... then Hawkeye dies to save Cap.
That being said, here are the other characters who I see as expendable
Thunderbolt Ross/Red Hulk
Then Avengers 3 is going to be the curb stomp. That's where Thanos kills everybody over the course of the film.
