Cap isn't the goose, Iron Man is. I think Tony will be killed in the beginning of A2 but revived somehow towards the end, but Cap ends up dead instead. Or something happens to him in TWS. We know he'll literally be teaming up with SHIELD in the film so it's not farfetched that he becomes Agent Rogers..
Cap's "death" worked in the comics because Cap was already a beloved and LOOOONG-established centerpiece of the Marvel Universe, so when Millar and Bendis martyred him and made their little red-state/blue-state political statement, it resonated.

MCU Cap isn't even out of his diapers yet, by contrast. He's already been "dead" for 70 years, and his "resurrection" is just now being celebrated by the world (America, anyway). Killing him off *again,* and for real this time, would have a resonance factor of exactly zero with movie audiences.
