However, it doesn't make a bit of sense for Cap to don his highly stylized battle suit when on a secret-agent mission, and could very likely make him look silly. As in TFA, we'll likely see Cap in a variety of outfits - Civilian garb as in the concept art, a super-soldier type SHIELD outfit, and the full red, white and blue costume for the final battle.
I'm not saying he can't wear civilian outfits, or even that he can't don a super-soldier sort of costume at some point in the film.
I'm saying it's a Captain America movie, therefore we use the Captain America costume. Front and center. Don't leave it just for the final battle - that just seems cheap.
