Now The Avengers: Infinity War co-director Joe Russo weighs in on Chris Evans playing Nomand. 

“Our approach to [Steve Rogers] was to deconstruct him, to take him in a different direction,” Joe Russo told ESPN. “Obviously you can’t deal with a character called Captain America without dealing with the thematics behind that, so we wanted a relevancy to it and we wanted to put him in a position where he was questioning the chain of command.”

Russo continues with confirmation that Captain America isn’t exactly Nomad in The Avengers: Infinity War

“You’ll see in these Avengers films, he’s on a very specific journey as a character. Some people have suspected that he may be Nomad heading into Avengers 3, and I wouldn’t say that he is exactly Nomad, but he is the spirit of that character.”
