Re: Who dies?
Exactly. Iron Man is a great character but do they really need to keep pumping movies out every 2 years? Give him a break for a few years until all the actors in the MCU are done and then restart with entirely different actors.
Having Iron Man die in number 3 would be extremely beneficial, it would tug at heartstrings, it would show how formidable the villain is, and it prevents a recast. I think Marvel has enough sense and enough guts to do it, at least I hope they do.
