Possible spoilers for Captain America: Civil War ahead!

A few months ago, set leaks from Captain America: Civil War seemed to reveal that the Russo brothers had filmed multiple endings to prevent early spoilers, which included no less than four death scenes. In a new interview, Civil War screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely seemed to confirm that all of these scenes are in the final version of the movie, which means we may be saying goodbye to not one, but four Avengers over the course of the film.

Possible spoilers ahead! (Click to reveal)

According to the original report, the Russos filmed Captain America's death, which is foreordained by the comics, and then three other deaths, of which only one will actually make it into the movie. Scarlet Witch, War Machine, and Falcon all reportedly filmed death scenes, as a means of misdirecting the paparazzi and the fans. Markus and McFeely heartily deny that this is true, and claim that all of the scenes filmed made it into the movie:

"No, I saw that on the internet and that's crap," McFeely told Uproxx. "I read, we read we filmed three deaths."

"This is very much the movie we've always intended on where we wanted to stand and where we wanted to leave it," said Markus.
Closing quote

So does this mean that all of these characters die in Civil War? He doesn't exactly deny that all of these scenes were filmed, but it's hard to tell, and I can't really imagine that all of these characters die. War Machine seems likely from the trailers, and Scarlet Witch is a possibility (although considering the dearth of female characters and Wanda's awesomeness, I really hope it's not true). But Falcon will be needed to replace Captain America once Steve is gone, unless they give Steve Rogers' mantle to Bucky? At the very least, I would hope that they wouldn't kill off two POC and a woman in a movie already full of white men.
