Captain America on display

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Thursday, January 13, 2011

The first full body look at Chris Evans in his World War II Captain America costume has now arrived. The look matches precisely the leaked costume designs that we saw last summer, and also correspond to the era of the superhero's introduction to society. After all, it only makes sense that an American superhero fighting against Nazis would wear a leather outfit, steel helmet, straps and a utility belt (with gun holster.)

The photo made its debut tonight on EW's website. If you look closely at Cap's shield you'll see that it's damaged by bullet fire and combat, adding to the roughed-up-ness that director Joe Johnston is employing for his origin story of the Marvel hero.

Those guys in the background wearing black armored suits are most likely HYDRA agents, likely under the command of The Red Skull (Hugo Weaving).

Among the details gleaned from EW's accompaning article:

  • Chris Evans likes to suit up in his Cap costume all by his lonesome.
  • It takes him about 25 minutes to put on the entire suit.
  • The colors in Cap's WW2 airman-inspired costume are more muted than the ones found in his modern day look in the Captain America comic book. Also, the A on his helmet and star on his chest are smaller for the movie suit than the comic suit. "You can’t really take him seriously in his flag pajamas," Johnston told EW.

Captain America: The First Avenger is scheduled to arrive in theaters on July 22, 2011.

Update: Paramount has now provided us with a higher resolution of the photo.

I guess I like it all right, even if Cap's costume does look a little frumpy.  I'd probably like it a little more if the grey straps were blue.

If this movie's great, I'll re-evaluate my opinion of Joe Johnston. If it's not good, I'll hate him twice as much, or more.
