Does Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) die in the upcoming Captain America sequel?

Captain America 2 teasers released earlier have shown footage of Fury at the receiving end of the Winter Soldier's (Sebastian Stan) wrath.

What follows is clips of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) possibly mourning over a blanket-covered body in a surgery room. Other preview moments show Fury crawling away from his demolished vehicle and later, in an injured state, telling Captain America (Chris Evans), "looks like you're giving the orders now."

The new trailer pushes this possibility further as it shows Steve Rogers saying: "Fury's last words were not to trust anyone."

"The line is coupled with a familiar shot of him and Black Widow overlooking the hospital room from previous teasers and then having a little rage-out session with his shield," states a Yahoo Movies report. The scene also has a S.H.I.E.L.D agent, Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) grieving.

However, in the Marvel universe, characters just don't die. A case in point: Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) was killed in the The Avengers but was brought back for TV's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

In the more recent Marvel film, Thor: The Dark World, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) gave his life to save his righteous brother (or so it seemed). The God of Mischief was shown alive towards the end of the film.

It remains to be seen whether, what the trailers are probably hinting at, will really happen. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is part of Marvel's Phase 2 plan which included the release of Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World leading up to the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, in 2015.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters on 4 April. Watch the new trailer below:
