Default Re: How can the Winter Soldier's fate determine Joss Whedon's Kill in Avengers 2

I find it hard to believe that Disney, which paid $4 billion for Marvel and has seen the studio blow up into a reliable blockbuster factory, is going to allow any major character to be killed off. Whedon is more than welcome to slaughter his own intellectual property, but he won't have carte blanche with Disney's billion-dollar babies. All of the characters are parts of other franchises or have the potential to be in the future. Killing them kills off their story potential and Disney's profit potential along with them.

And really, Whedon shouldn't have to kill anyone off, no matter how stressed not killing makes him. Any writer worth his salt should be able to raise the stakes to an unbearable level without actually killing off a central character.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
