It wouldn’t work – making him Cap would violate some kind of indescribable logic, but you know it’s there. “In the series, Spellman explains that maybe John Walker will be a perhaps more relatable character: “So we started with the books, and as we saw that he was going to become Cap, we – I’m not going to say l ‘softened it, but we humanized it and made it a lot more worthy.
