Chris Evans is set to appear in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movies, but it’s possible that he won’t be playing Captain America as we know him.
The character put down his shield at the end of Captain America: Civil War and directors Joe and Anthony Russo confirm that he is going to be a different kind of Cap.
“I think him dropping that shield is him letting go of that identity,” Joe told Huffington Post. “[It’s] him admitting that certainly the identity of Captain America was in conflict with the very personal choice that he was making.”
In the comic books, Steve Rogers takes on the name of The Nomad when he loses faith in the government, so it’s possible that this happens in the movies!
Tony Romo will be sitting out of the current football season until further notice after breaking a bone in his back.
The 36-year-old Dallas Cowboys quarterback could miss six to ten weeks after suffering a compression fracture during a pre-season game against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday (August 25).
Tony said he was fine after being hit by Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril, but he was taken out of the game and an MRI revealed the damage.
“We’re confident that he’s going to be coming back and playing football for us this year,” coach Jason Garrett said (via USA Today).

Nate Parker has given an in-depth interview about being put on trial for rape accusations and how his previous comments about the case and his accuser were not empathetic.
The 36-year-old The Birth of a Nation star and director was accused of rape back in 1999 and he was acquitted of the charges. The case resurfaced recently and he released a statement about it, but then a few days later it was revealed that his accuser had committed suicide several years ago.
“This is hard; I’ve been trying to figure out how to say this. Not everyone has the best intentions. I thought I was giving the interview, at the time of those two interviews — and one really just bit off the other — I didn’t know the status of the women,” Nate told Ebony. “I didn’t know. I was acting as if I was the victim, and that’s wrong. I was acting as if I was the victim because I felt like, my only thought was I’m innocent and everyone needs to know. I didn’t even think for a second about her, not even for a second.”
“You asked me why I wasn’t empathetic? Why didn’t it come off more empathetic? Because I wasn’t being empathetic. Why didn’t it come off more contrite? Because I wasn’t being contrite. Maybe I was being even arrogant. And learning about her passing shook me, it really did. It really shook me,” he added.
Throughout the lengthy interview, Nate talks about his views on being called a rapist, his idea of consent, and more. At one point he was asked if he has thought about his accuser and the incident at all over the last 17 years. “No, I had not. I hadn’t thought about it at all,” he replied.
