A SUPERHERO fan is concerned that hugely profitable intellectual properties such as Iron Man may not survive in new Marvel film Captain America: Civil War.
Council worker Martin Bishop is concerned that the epic conflict could result in his favourite characters dying and no longer appearing in Marvel’s hit film franchises or its multi-billion dollar product range.
Bishop said: “Iron Man looks like he’s getting battered in the trailer. I’ll be gutted if he dies, but I know Marvel would never compromise artistic integrity just to sell rucksacks.
“I’m also worried about Black Widow because she’s a bit puny compared to the others. I’d hate it if Scarlett Johansson’s character who wears a skin-tight outfit and is fancied by millions of men isn’t in the films anymore.
“It’s not like you can just bring people back from the dead in a universe full of mystical objects and amazing fictional technology.
“The new character Black Panther had better be especially careful not to get in any dangerous situations because he’s meant to be in his own film in 2018.”
Bishop is currently searching the internet to discover whether his favourite superheroes die, during which he has bought a set of Avengers shot glasses he will never use and a Nick Fury bath mat.
