Avengers: Age of Ultron
While the Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of the most successful movie franchises ever and takes great pains to keep everything interconnected, it’s also predictable. You know that every character is a cash cow, so the stakes aren’t that big- no one’s gonna die, because Marvel needs them all. So, when you know at the end of the day, all is going to be ok, you’re not really feeling how serious the threat is.
That is, until Quicksilver. Granted he was a minor character, but his death at the end of the film is pretty shocking. Someone actually died in a Marvel film. What’s even more tragic is that, it’s never mentioned again. Wanda seems okay in Civil War, and I highly doubt we’ll hear anything about him in Avengers 3&4. But for a moment there, it looked like Marvel was ready to play some hardball. Let’s hope they do it again.
