If you’ve somehow been clinging onto the smallest bit of hope that Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers was still Captain America, then allow me to be the bearer of bad news. He’s not. Sure, some folks may call him Cap because old habits die hard, but he’s no longer the star-spangled hero we once looked up to. As Peter Parker’s gym teacher said in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Steve is pretty much a war criminal.
Since it became clear that Rogers would be on the lam on the heels of Captain America: Civil War, it seemed plausible that he would be taking on yet another moniker — that of The Nomad. Historically, this is the name Steve Rogers adopts as soon as he ditches his suit and American ways, and as we’ve seen in the trailers for Avengers: Infinity War, that seems to fit him very well.
Now, Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo took to their Instagram accounts to pretty much confirm his new title.
Now, it’s worth noting that this isn’t something created by Marvel or the Russos. They have a habit of taking fan art and using it in their profiles. But he spirit is still there, and it sounds like Cap being the Nomad is all but confirmed. Yes, we know. It’s a sad, sad day that Cap — I mean Steve — is no longer Cap.
That moment in Civil War when he dropped the shield was a momentous one, and I’m happy to see that the impact of that moment isn’t lost. Are you happy to see Steve Rogers as The Nomad? Let us know down below!
