I think keeping them alive will be a bad choice from a narrative standpoint. I think it will be a bad decision.
Still, I think they will not die, mostly because the trailer makes it seem that way.
However, I still think the whole "traumatized kids" angle is ridiculous, and makes no sense. They are stating alive for crass commercialism.
Marvel movies are rated PG-13, and all these films were rated PG, and had darker elements than noble sacrifice (which has been in children's fiction forever)
Old Yeller is a Disney classic, and a kid has to shoot his own dog.
In Return to Oz, there is a hall of heads.
Never Ending Story is pretty much about Depression.
Luke Skywalker's Aunt and Uncle (essentially his parents) are killed... presumably burned alive.
Raiders of the Lost Arc has people's faxces melting, admittedly Nazis and therefore okay, but still a disturbing image.
Temple of Doom has a child slave ring, where they are worked to death.
Poltergeist has a guy pulling his own face off.
E.T. dies. However, before that he just controls a kid
All the Jedi are shown massacred, including small children, in Episode III of the original action figure franchise
Han Solo is tortured in Empire Strikes Back.
Like every Disney character's mother dies.
The Brave little Toaster more or less has a song about euthanasia, where sentient cars sing about their lives, right before being smashed to a lifeless cube.
Three kids seemingly die in Willie Wonka, but it is okay because it turns out they probably just suffered while orange people taunted them in song. The scene with violet freaked me out as a kid.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit melted a cute cartoon to death.
The father in Close Encounters of the Third Kind willingly abandons his family, and is celebrated for it.
