It's crazy with Captain America reaching an all time high level of popularity through his film appearances that Marvel seems to be determined to keep him out of his costume. After the events of the comic book Civil War, he was killed off, to be replaced by Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier. He finally regained his mantle, but did not hold onto it all that long. These days, Sam Wilson/The Falcon has stepped into the role. Not a bad idea, but he should have chosen to go with either the wings or the shield - using both just seems so wonky to me. With Steve Rogers heading up another huge summer film next year, will he be able to assume the title of Captain America again in time for the premiere? Or will that film spell the end for Steve as Cap on screen as well?
