I hope that future films restore the idea of secret identies. It's a core element of the appeal of many superheroes.
It's especially important for Captain America, for several reasons:
-He's a symbol of all that's good in America. The man SHOULD be anonymous. He could be any of us.
-As a living symbol of America, he needs to be able to move among us as one of us.
-As a man out of his time, he should be able to live a normal life and be able to contrast it with his upbringing.
- I just plain liked Steve Rogers, commercial artist, and his neighbors, his girlfriend Bernie... the whole bit.
