The third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is on in full swing and the mid-credit scene of "Ant Man" has set things in motion for the upcoming Civil War between the superheroes. However, chances are, after the Civil War, the titular hero of Captain America, may be killed.
There are many reasons for one to believe "Captain America: Civil War" would be Chris Evans' last movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the most plausible one being that according to the comic book series, it is time for the beloved captain Steve Rogers to be killed by Crossbones. Here are some set pictures that show Caps fighting Crossbones aka Brock Rumlow (Frank Grillo), which should prove the theory.

Another thing to bear in mind is that one key member should definitely die, and sure, it could be Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), but with the recent announcement "Iron Man 4", it seems unlikely. Also, according to many reports, Iron Man is still a very essential part of both "Infinity War" films. If the Captain, who more or less holds the Avengers together, dies, the rest of them will have to unite to defeat Thanos.
Also, Iron Man's nightmare when the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) manipulated his mind in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" showed saw all of Stark's Avenger friends dead. This could have been a premonition to what happens to the Caps in "Civil War". After all, the fight is between Iron Man and Captain America.
Moreover, it is time for the old Avengers to give way for the other Marvel superheroes like "Doctor Strange" (Benedict Cumberbatch), "Black Panther" (Chadwick Boseman) and of course, "The Inhumans".
Having said that, death does not hold the same meaning in the Marvel Universe as it does in the real world; take Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) for example. So, may be death isn't such a bad future for the Captain.
