I just hope they pair him with Matt Hollingsworth; his last foray on the title with Frank D'Armata was practically ruined by the colors. (D'Armata seems to have left the book, though, so that's probably not a real concern.)
D'Armata is the only bad thing about Captain America, but it's a very bad thing. I'm glad that you, too, see the atrocities he has been committing in the name of "colorist."
Is it me, or does it seem like lately the new trend is to plaster a graphic bar over the top of a comic to denote the current storyline? Other examples that jump off the top of my head is Hercules, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman.
It's certainly nothing new to identify the story arc above the title, but the black bar is surprisingly consistent these days. I think it means "we're not joking! This is serious comic book storytelling, here!"
It also means "we are surprisingly bad at graphic design!"(This one's actually not so bad, but did you see those March on Ultimatum ones? Ugh.)
