If you're even remotely familiar with the comic book movie genre, then you probably already know that death is seldom permanent. That's one of the longest running jokes in the history of superhero films, as beloved characters (and the actors who play them) always find a way to come back from seemingly fatal wounds. This makes some degree of sense, because death is also rarely permanent in the world of actual comic books -- unless your name is Uncle Ben Parker.

However, over the course of the last three films, the DCEU has shown far more willingness to kill certain characters than 20th Century Fox or Marvel. Looking to the future, we think this trend will most certainly continue as DC's silver screen universe becomes more and more crowded with iconic heroes and villains. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of the 9 DCEU characters most likely to die within the next five years. Now, let's get started with one of the most highly anticipated Justice League debuts.

Justice League Gordon

Commissioner Gordon

We already know that J.K. Simmons will premiere in next year's Justice League, and it seems fairly likely that he will at least continue on to work with The Dark Knight in the first solo Batman movie. However, beyond that, he becomes one of the more expendable members of The Bat Family. Killing Commissioner Gordon at some point in the future is also feasible simply due to the fact that there's precedent for replacing him -- particularly when there's an older Batman involved. The Gordon/Batman dynamic has been done so many times at this point, we wouldn't be surprised if Warner Bros. opted to bring in someone new like Ellen Yindel from The Dark Knight Returns, or even an older Barbara Gordon, much in the same way that Batman Beyond used her. Sorry Gordon, perhaps you should retire while you still have the chance.
