It’s been teased through trailers and interviews that Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to be much darker than its predecessor. That’s hardly surprising, given who the main antagonist is. It’s one thing to want to conquer Earth with an alien army, like Loki did. It’s another thing to lead a genocide against humanity in order to usher in "peace." Obviously, as a superhero movie, there will be plenty of action and property damage, not to mention tremendous fallout that will affect future MCU stories. More important, however, is that there have even been a few hints that someone may die. Remember, this is a Joss Whedon project, after all.

With all this darkness and devastation, there’s bound to be casualties along the way in the fight against Ultron and his minions, and not just civilians or minor characters. During their battle against the insane robot, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes might lose some allies along the way. While the main Avengers lineup is safe, here are the other major Avengers: Age of Ultron players who could be killed off during the movie.

So far the only footage we’ve seen of Tony Stark’s best friend in Avengers: Age of Ultron is from the party scene. Granted, it was expected that he wouldn’t have nearly as big a role as the other superheroes, but it still isn’t a good indicator that the only time we’ve seen him is minutes before the killer robots start attacking. Currently there are no plans to make Iron Man 4, and Marvel hasn’t divulged whether he will be appearing in future films. If the film is looking to kill someone off to show how dangerous Ultron is, Rhodey’s chances aren’t looking good. Also, by killing him, it would give Tony a personal loss and force him to change his perspective on superpowered beings, which then leads into the events of Captain America: Civil War.
