Nick Fury’s Death Revealed in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Tv Spot?

We know someone’s going to die in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The foreboding atmosphere, the shot of Black Widow standing over a covered up corpse… thanks to Marvel’s trademark unsubtle marketing, we know someone big was going to kick the bucket… and in a brand new TV spot for the sequel, an intriguing line of dialogue might just have revealed who bites the bullet. With a big fat spoiler warning, check the spot out below:

So, does Nick Fury really die? It certainly looked that way until the second trailer showed him wounded but alive after his encounter with the Winter Soldier, so what’s going on here? Is Fury really dead, or is he just faking it to help motivate Cap (the Marvel Cinematic Universe, for all its strengths, is rather scared of killing characters)? If he is dead, how exactly does he die? And will I stop asking questions?*

Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits cinemas on April 4 and stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L Jackson, Robert Redford, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders and Sebastian Stan.

*No, I’m afraid.
