I mean sure, we have aliens blowing up stuff and Loki gauging one random dude's eye out, but when you really think about it, there hasn't really been any real sense of casualties shown in a realistic way since Iron Man 1.
Now, they just show people running around the streets in chaos and only say with montages or assumptions that people were killed; either that, or no main/important character to the hero(es) ever die, so it was a refresher to see someone close at home be hit for once since it actually reminds folks that there's some sense of danger attached to all of this and that the characters we love on screen can be killed off as well.
That's what the SHIELD tv series is for lol. So that we can have a whole cast of characters who can easily be killed off (especially since they are Whedon creations) instead of using people like Coulson or any other actual Marvel SHIELD character. Expect the likes of Melinda May or Agent Skye to bite the dust at some point.
