A new Marvel's Avengers (opens in new tab) leak has given us a better look at Captain America in action, seemingly confirming the character will be returning from the dead following his sacrifice in the game's much pubicised opening act.
A fresh batch of images appeared on Reddit (opens in new tab) earlier this week, and shows an alive and well Cap standing next to Iron Man on the Avengers helicarrier, your homebase in the upcoming action adventure game.

Relatedly, another newly surfaced clip on Reddit reveals that Captain America can wall run in the game, which will presumably one of his main forms of traversal as the Avengers move from objective to objective.

Marvel's Avengers is scheduled to launch for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 4, before eventually hitting the PS5 (opens in new tab) and Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) when those next-gen consoles launch this Holiday.
Square Enix has already confirmed two new heroes, Hawkeye and Spider-Man, will be entering the game's playable roster post-launch, though the latter will be exclusive to PlayStation systems only.
