A hero will almost never be subjected to a headshot death. It won't matter if the entire movie has him facing some sort of evil crackshot (which may end in an ironic headshot death for the aforementioned evil crackshot), or headshot deaths were handed out like Halloween candy throughout the movie; he will not be shot in the head, but, instead, usually the heart or abdomen (if at all).
