The Russo Brothers confirm that Steve Rogers is no longer Captain America

in Disney, Entertainment, Marvel, Movies, Movies & TV

The explosive conflict between Captain America and Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War left the fate of the Avengers up in the air, and alliances in shambles. While the movie was absolutely (face-meltingly) incredible, there’s no denying that there will be a lot of new revelations and friendships formed when the Russo brothers helm Avengers: Infinity War — which drops into theaters on May 4th, 2018.

Now we have one of these stunning revelations straight from the Russos themselves (from ComicBook.com): Steve Rogers will no longer be Captain America. During a press tour for the Civil War home release, the brothers spoke to Huffington Post about this shocking turn of events:

“I think him dropping that shield is him letting go of that identity,” said Joe. “[It’s] him admitting that certainly,the identity of Captain America was in conflict with the very personal choice that he was making.”

So what will become of our “boy from Brooklyn” now that he’s given up the mantle? Will we see Falcon take up the title? No matter what happens, there’s no denying that the world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to be turned upside down when Thanos comes to play.

Let me know what you think in the comments below, and stick with ITM for all things fun and awesome!

    Will Iron Man and Captain America both be played by black teenager girls? If casting changes, I’ll keep my dollar in my wallet.

      Hey buddy your racism is showing.

      1. Reagan greer

        hes not being racist he was joking about whats happening in the comics right now with a teenage girl playing iron man which i dont need to tell you of how many levels of wrong that is

        1. Nishi

          The fact that you find “so many levels of wrong” with a black girl being Iron Man tells a lot about yourself, moron. Who gives a rat’s ass who’s in the suit? What the f*** does it matter?

      2. JimJ

        I’m not racist. ITM itself reported on the casting changes for Iron Man in the comic books who will be replaced with a teenage black girl. Whether you want to see it is up to you.

        This is what happens when we have an entire generation’s attention span drop below that of goldfish (not a hyperbole). Mentioning someone’s race = racist.

    2. You haven’t kept up with comics have you. I don’t think it makes sense but Iron Man is now a black woman. I’m serious.

      Good for you, now you can go back to watching incest porn JimJ,

    JimJ: if you actually follow the captain America comic you would see that Steve Rogers in fact is not always captain America. Moreover, captain America is, at one point, portrayed by an African American.

      sam wilson aka falcon aka better than steve rogers. i think he will retire in the first part of infinity war then join back with the team

    2. JimJ

      This means nothing to me. I want to see Captain America as portrayed by Chris Evans. I hope they won’t deviate too much.

      1. In the comics, he has abandonded the costume but he is still the same person .

    Jimj, that was just a very racist comment there, and just for the record, i’m not Black but most of my friends are

    1. Reagan greer

      hes not racist at all if you were up to date on the comics you would know what hes talking about

    2. JimJ

      I’m not white myself. Can’t I have my own opinion? I prefer my characters to be who they are originally. ITM itself reported on the casting changes for Iron Man in the comic books who will be replaced with a teenage black girl. Whether you want to see it is up to you.

    That breaks my heart….I’m a die hard fan but without Steve as Cap I’m done.Sorry you screwing up

  5. Just because he doesn’t wear the costume, doesn’t mean he isn’t Captain America. The America he grew up in and defended during WW2 no longer exists so it makes sense for him to abandon the shield but he will still fight for what he believes in. Anyone who is a fan of the comics know that a costume has nothing to do with who the person is.

  6. Erin

    I agree that the iron man changes make absolutely no sense. I’m definitely no on board with the iron man change up.

    In regards to the original comment…I think this is a very good example of how difficult it can be to denote emotion/author voice/etc from a typed comment

  7. DC

    Time for Disney to just dump Marvel entirely and remove every single trace of it from the parks. DC is much better anyway because of Superman, who would kill Captain America and all the Avengers with his heat vision.

    It seems to me, in light of CA: CW, if either Bucky ir Falcon takes up the shield/mantle, they would HAVE to sign the Accords, wouldn’t they? I don’t see that happening with Bucky, at least not while he’s a mess, he can’t trust himself so he’s back in the freezer by his own choice. Falcon, on the other hand, I would think if a situation is dire enough, he MIGHT talk things over with Steve before deciding to sign the Accords and taking up the Cap mantle.
    I know in the comics Steve Rogers is The Nomad, it would be interesting to see if that comes to be in the MCU…it’s all very, very exciting! 🙂

    YES! Now we can finally have the one-nostriled, gay, black-hispanic, transgender, morbidly obese, two-souled, autistic, otherkin Captain America that we’ve always wanted! JACKPOT!
