The title of Nomad already has a history in both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and in the comics. Originally, it was another heroic moniker that Steve Rogers took on after abandoning the Captain America title in “Captain America” #180. It’s this route that many fans thought would be replicated after the events of “Captain America: Civil War” leading into “Avengers: Infinity War” only for co-director Joe Russo to confirm on the Fantasy Focus Football podcast (via Flickering Myth), “I wouldn’t say that he is exactly Nomad, but he is the spirit of that character. “
Even so, after Chris Evans’ departure, the weighted name of Nomad lingered, reappearing in 2020, when, along with the likes of “Secret Invasion,” “Ironheart,” and “Armor Wars” being trademarked, so too was “Marvel Studios Nomad.” Unlike the rest, the studio never announced this publicly. It was a move from Marvel that never developed but, according to Murphy’s Multiverse, the trademark remains active after three years. This suggests that the studio may still have plans for it and the super soldier previously linked to the title. It also adds more strength to reports in 2021 that Evans would be reprising his role as Cap, regardless of what the star might have said on the matter. More importantly, if he does come back, he might not be alone on his trip through time.
