Thanks to comments from actor Chris Evans and speculation about his contract with Marvel Studios, a lot of fans think that Captain America/Steve Rogers won't survive the events of Avengers: Endgame. However, we think there's a good chance that Captain America will survive the events of Endgame, though that doesn't necessarily mean that he'll play a major role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward.
As we don't know the status of Evans' contract at this time, it's a little easier to focus on the plot of Endgame and how it makes more sense story wise to have Tony Stark/Iron Man sacrifice himself, rather than Captain America. This might make a lot more sense, especially considering how Tony has changed since his first appearance in Iron Man. Plus, it would really help push forward Captain America's arc to see a person he once thought of as selfish make the ultimate sacrifice.

Even if Captain America does survive the events of Endgame, that doesn't necessarily mean that he'll play a major role in the MCU going forward. Although he'll always be an important character and might make some cameos, there's no indication right now that he won't retire after defeating Thanos. This means that Bucky Barnes or Sam Wilson could still take up Captain America's shield, as they do in the comics. This also doesn't mean that other characters, like Tony Stark, will survive the film.
