Marvel's Civil War II Previews the Death of at Least One of Our Favorite Heroes
We might be shedding a few tears when Captain America: Civil War comes out on May 6, but another Civil War is raging in Marvel Comics, and it will take yet another well-known superhero away from us. A new trailer for Civil War II is out, and Marvel is promising the death of at least one major character:


In Civil War II, Iron Man and Captain Marvel come into conflict over a new Inhuman who can see the future, and the responsibilities associated with changing the future. Although it's a sequel to the 2006 crossover event, the teams are very different from the film, with Captain America (Sam Wilson), Thor (Jane Foster), Black Panther, Star-Lord, Luke Cage, Hercules, Miss America, Daredevil, Black Widow, Hulk (Amadeus Cho), and Deadpool joining Iron Man, and Captain America (Steve Rogers), War Machine, Spider-Man, Vision, Medusa, Blue Marvel, Winter Soldier, Spectrum, She-Hulk, Hawkeye, and Ant-Man joining Captain Marvel.

Marvel described the series in a press release (via THR):
