In an interview with EW, Lanzing said:
“What’s interesting about Captain America #0 is that, unlike a lot of zero issues, we’re not gonna spend a lot of time building the plot for both books or teasing out a bunch of amazing stuff,”
“The issue #1’s are gonna do that. Issue #0 is effectively a conversation between Steve and Sam about what it means for both of them to be Captain America simultaneously. But that conversation isn’t had in a room sitting down over beers, that conversation is had while flying/holding onto the side of a massive rocket heading into the sky to obliterate all of mankind because Arnim Zola is back and he’s got a bad plan.”
“We’ve seen Sam Wilson deal with the legacy of Captain America and race in very inward terms with regards to America: What does it mean for America to accept a Black Captain America?” Onyebuchi says. “One of the things I’m teasing in my book is, what does it mean for the rest of the world to accept a Black Captain America? That’s another part of the equation. If Captain America is in many ways mimesis of America, with all the good and bad pathologies, what does that mean for the way in which America interacts with the rest of the world?”
