A new report has shed some light on the big death that will occur at the tail-end of Captain America: Civil War and what this death will mean for Avengers: Infinity War...

There are potentially earth-shattering *SPOILERS* for Captain America: Civil War in this article, so if you want to stay in the dark, leave now.

Ever since Captain America: Civil War kicked off production, there have been variety of rumors circulating about which members of the Avengers would make it out alive and which would not. A recent rumor even suggested that the Russo brothers had shot multiple death scenes to throw crazed Marvel fans off their track. Things petered off for a while, but now that reshoots have been completed, a new report has seemingly learned details about the major death that will occur at the end of the film and it's one that fans of the Civil War comic storyline will be very familiar with...

According to, it will be Steve Rogers who dies at the end of Captain America: Civil War and it will be Crossbones who delivers the fatal strike.

They add that there are currently two cuts of the film's ending and while one features Chris Evans' Steve Rogers disappearing into the night alongside his fellow Avengers, the other, which they have confirmed to be the current theatrical ending, will feature Frank Grillo's Crossbones killing Captain America (whether or not it's under his own volition and/or if he has any accomplices is yet-to-be seen). Regardless, it will be an extremely close adaptation of the Fallen Son storyline, which coincidentally was also the film's original subtitle.

With Cap dead, what does this mean for Avengers: Infinity War?

Well, just like in the comics, it sounds like it'll be the Winter Soldier who becomes the next Captain America. Geek has learned that Sebastian Stan, who plays the time-defying assassin, has already been fitted for his own Captain America suit, which more or less suggests that he will be the one who takes his best friend's mantle in the upcoming Infinity War... well at least for one-half of it.

Marvel's current plan is apparently to leave Evans' Steve Rogers completely out of Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1, in order to shift the focus to Tom Holland's Spider-Man and to Stan's Bucky, and then resurrect Rogers during the film's grand finale. It's unclear how exactly Marvel plans on accomplishing this feat, but the best and most obvious guess would likely be through one of the Infinity Stones, with the yet-to-be seen Soul Stone and Time Stones being the most likely candidates to play a part in the revival of the First Avenger.

So, what do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below!

“Captain America: Civil War” picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
