It was more about the continuation of what was going to happen with the shield, if it was going to be Bucky or if it was going to be Sam, because at the end of Endgame, Sam did not accept The shield. He said to Steve, ‘It feels like it’s someone else’s, it feels like it’s yours.’ So at no point was he excited or anxious about the idea of becoming Captain America. “.
He then confessed: “So it was more like Kevin Feige and Nate Moore telling me, ‘We’re not sure what’s going on, so the show will be more about the idea or archetype of Captain America, not about you becoming Captain America.’ confused leaving the meeting.
