The New York Daiy News is running an exclusive announcing that Steve Rogers will be picking up his shield and resuming his role as Captain America again in this July's relaunch of Captain America. While there have been rumours about Steve Rogers becoming Cap again (come on, there's a movie due out soon with Steve Rogers as Captain America, who didn't see this coming?), the NY Daily News confirmed it and also have the creative team behind the relaunch - Ed Brubaker continuing on as writer and Steve McNiven (Civil War, Old Man Logan) on art.
What remains up in the air is the status of current Captain America - Bucky Barnes. With the announced Captain America Corps for June with the solicit listing "two Captain Americas" on the squad and Bucky Cap on the cover, are we looking at a Batman situation with multiple Caps running around? Will Bucky die in Fear Itself to make room for Steve's return? Who will run SHIELD if Steve is going to be running around as Cap again?
