UPDATE W/ CONFIRMATION!! This Is CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER!! -- Now Embiggenable!! --

Published at: June 2, 2010, 6:22 p.m. CST

Merrick again, again... PLEASE NOTE: the images below are now rather EMBIGGENABLE!!!



Merrick again... Mike Sampson over at JoBlo has confirmed that the pieces appearing below are the same images/designs he saw last week. I.e. the ones he described so wonderfully in THIS ARTICLE, which lead to the reader submitted mock-ups we covered yesterday.
Ain't It Cool posted some art today that aren't just fan mockups - these are the real deal.
...says Mike/JoBlo HERE. Toldya these "would be well worth sharing with you." Ladies and gentlemen, Captain America! Personally, I think the suit looks pretty great. Evokes the right retro vibe while looking modern enough to not be cheesy. I dig it. And, another tip-of-the-hat to Broly's Legend for letting us get a look at these.





Merrick here...
Yesterday we linked out to JoBlo's detailed description of the suit from Joe Johnston's CAPTAIN AMERICA movie (HERE). JoBlo's coverage also included readers' artistic interpretations of the costume based upon the site's write-up of the same. Below, you'll find more art of Cap's suit (from an entirely different origin and source) rendered with much more detail, and with much more clarity, than anything else we've seen to date. These came to us via an AICN reader called Broly's Legend, who contextualized these pieces in a way that...made us pretty sure they would be well worth sharing with you. Know ye that these be EMBIGGENABLE!

    Not bad...

    by Judge Briggs

    I don't know how well Capt. America's costume can translate to the big screen. It's certainly one of the most difficult costumes!

  • June 2, 2010, 12:17 p.m. CST

    Winghead?

    by film11

    What happened to the wings on Cap's cowl?? Looks naked without them.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:19 p.m. CST

    Why no wings?

    by spiderweb1986

    Is there any reason why the wings couldn't be, say, painted on the side of the helmet? It doesn't need ACTUAL wings, but you could throw a 2D version on there to break up the field of solid blue.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:19 p.m. CST

    That's fine as it is

    by terry1978

    You can look at it and tell who it is, and if they decide on the wings later on for some reason, go ahead.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:19 p.m. CST

    Other than that, though...

    by spiderweb1986

    ...the suit looks good for a live-action movie.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:19 p.m. CST

    These are great impressions...

    by HyphenatedWords

    ...and I can only imagine that the live version will surpass our expectations. They're combining the classic look with a bit of the Ultimates look, making the costume signature yet utilitarian. It's perfect.<br> <br> Make Mine Marvel!

  • June 2, 2010, 12:20 p.m. CST

    Fan creations, right?

    by vadakinX

    Maybe you should just make it clear that these are all fan-created mock ups based on a description and not the actual suit. <p> Unless I'm way off and it is the actual suit. <p> I have to say though, it doesn't look half bad. Maybe the one from yesterday could serve as the WWII suit and the one here could be the updated SHIELD creation...just add wings.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:20 p.m. CST

    Nah, But Seriously, This Looks Pretty Cool

    by LaserPants

    I don't know if comics are supposed to be realistic really, are they? It always seems more fun when it pushes the whole believability angle... with the noted exception of things like TDK, of course which made reality work within the popcult / comic / power fantasy genre context...

  • June 2, 2010, 12:21 p.m. CST

    DC > MARVEL

    by LaserPants

    It just needed to be said. Marvel has gotten worse and worse over the last 5 years, whilst DC keeps getting better.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:21 p.m. CST

    looks great

    by joevfx

    im not sure what people were expecting when you know what the comicbook costume looks like.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:21 p.m. CST

    Amazing...

    by Triple_J_72

    ...that "rubber suit" technology in the 40's was so advanced. It looks so sleek and sophisticated... give me a break.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:21 p.m. CST

    I bet the one in the film...

    by bishop37

    ...won't look as half-way decent as this. The materials look far too modern for WWII, but someone should give this guy a job in a movie art dept.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:23 p.m. CST

    Actually looks like Chris Evans in the second pic

    by D.Vader

    Cool!

  • June 2, 2010, 12:23 p.m. CST

    For WW2, this is perfect!

    by Edited_Out

    Maybe he'll get his wings every time a bell rings--I mean, when he's revived in the present.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:24 p.m. CST

    Colors and Wings

    by HyphenatedWords

    If they could justify the wings, I'd buy them. If they were stylized radio receivers... blah blah blah. The original article said that Cap would have a show costume for USO morale. I imagine they'll play up the silliness of the wings there and let Rogers decry them. "Uh-uh. Not on the real deal."<br> <br> The blue suit vs. camouflage soldiers is by design for the character. He's meant to be a symbol. He's meant to take the most fire, drawing it from the normal soldiery, and put fear into the Nazis because he just keeps coming at them. Keep your swastika and Third Reich imagery. This is psychological warfare, U.S. patriot style.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:24 p.m. CST

    Want the helmet to be a helmet

    by Darth Busey

    And you guys have talked me into having the wings painted on the helmet...along with the "A". You can even have Bucky be the one to paint them on.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:24 p.m. CST

    Is he supposed to be Old Dan Tucker?

    by Snake Foreskin

    Oh, he's supposed to be Captain America. Sorry, the suspenders threw me.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:24 p.m. CST

    I hope they skew slightly closer to the comic in Avengers

    by IndustryKiller!

    That's not terrible for WWII Cap, but at least give him red boots in the comic. There's absolutely no reason why he couldn't have the comic suit, wings and all.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:25 p.m. CST

    Too bad Chris Evans is waaaaay too young...

    by Snake Foreskin

    to be Captain America. Let's face it, he's great as a smart-ass like the Human Torch. All wrong for Cap.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:25 p.m. CST

    The helmet and goggles should be seperate pieces

    by ATARI

    like in one of the other drawings from yesterday.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:26 p.m. CST

    Captain America WAS a kid

    by Darth Busey

    Steve Rogers was a young guy when he tried to enlist. He'd be young in WWII, too.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:26 p.m. CST

    Steve Rogers was in his 20's

    by terry1978

    If anything, Evans is probably too old.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:27 p.m. CST

    Do the suspenders cover the suit-nipples?

    by Snake Foreskin

    Joel Schumacher would not approve. Of course, he's too busy dying of AIDS right now, so...

  • June 2, 2010, 12:27 p.m. CST

    To go even further, Rogers would look like a Disney Channel kid

    by terry1978

    As disturbing as that is, that's more than likely what he'd look like.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:27 p.m. CST

    Like how the red stripes on the uni are the straps

    Clever.

    Is it me...

    by Flibbertygibbet

    or does the helmet in the 3rd image look more like a German helmet? Might wanna look at that...

  • June 2, 2010, 12:30 p.m. CST

    Very nicely done, 3rd one is amazing

    by BenBraddock

    Even if they have nothing to do with the movie, nice work!

  • June 2, 2010, 12:32 p.m. CST

    alright, looks pretty awesome

    by antonphd

    i like this look. although... maybe it's just the white background, but the helmet actually looks like it could use wings. but i'm sure it doesn't feel that way in an actual scene. this is better than i hoped. i kinda love it.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:33 p.m. CST

    Captain America should wear an M1 helmet

    WITHOUT THE WINGS, HE LOOKS LIKE A STORMTROOPER

    by moondoggy2u

    Still, not a bad design and FAR SUPERIOR to the last one, in which it looked as though Cap was wearing a Nazi Helmet.

    by DrPain

    ha ha, just kidding, look alright for a cartoon. betting the real thing will look even better.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:36 p.m. CST

    Works for me

    by SifoDyasJr.

    keeps 90% of the comic's look while making it fit with the real world. I like it a lot.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:36 p.m. CST

    this makes sense

    by Shaner Jedi

    it makes sense he would be attired in something resembling body armour. i like the look. doesn't stray too far from the original. I do miss the little wings though. Just put them back on and make them sharper more aerodynamic

  • June 2, 2010, 12:37 p.m. CST

    yeah i like it

    by smudgewhat

    looks functional, semi-realistic.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:37 p.m. CST

    I STILL SAY HE SHOULD HAVE WINGS

    by moondoggy2u

    AND WERE HE TO DITCH THE SUSPENDERS, THIS WOULD BE THE PERFECT COSTUME.

    by Shaner Jedi

    I think the red suspenders are clever, especially when you look at how it hold the shoulder armour in place. I like it. Put little sharp wings on and..perfection. Even then it's still very good.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:46 p.m. CST

    LOOKS GREAT

    by Disillusion_Ed

    More please.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:46 p.m. CST

    Not bad at all

    by br1947

    Let's be honest, the wings would have looked goofy. It looks like a good 'realistic' interpretation for the modern era Cap. I'm hoping for a blue WWII era suit close to American servicemen's style.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:47 p.m. CST

    Wings, Leave!!

    DC Ent. CCO Geoff Johns>Marvel Ent. CCO Joe Quesada

    by Thanos0145

    Marvel Entertainment promotes Joe Quesada today to chief creative officer. The man who thought that the "One More Day" Spiderman storyline was a good idea(NOT). Marvel movies are in big trouble.<p>As for the costume, IT STILL SUCKS!!! Nice of Marvel Entertainment not to honor the character Jack "King" Kirby(RIP) and Joe Simon(who is still alive) created. The costumes that Captain America and Superman wear are ICONIC and don't need to be changed for the sake of change.

  • June 2, 2010, 12:53 p.m. CST

    by schadenfreudian

    People are bitching that there wouldn't be rubber-looking clothing technology, but they're willing to concede there'd be a Super-soldier serum that would allow a man to completely restructure his DNA? <br> Wow, tough crowd. <br> For the record, if the costume looks anything like this, I'd say they did a good job.

    RIght on Hyphenated Words

    by Edited_Out

    Well said, and I agree 100% with everything you said. Cap is SUPPOSED to look like this--and they pretty much nailed it. Wings on a helmet just wouldn't look right--but as you said, they may dress him up in a non-combat cowl and wings for show. Besides, he's much closer to the source material look than the X-Men were, and their films did okay. (To address some of the comments from others.) And hey, how many laypeople knew who the X-Men were before the movies?

  • June 2, 2010, 1:13 p.m. CST

    A good compromise.....

    by thot

    ...between the comic book look and a more realistic rendering for battle readiness. The helmet is very cleverly done and the rest looks pretty badass. My only quibble is the damn shoulder stars! I realize they are found in the comic book as of late, but I've always found them to be redundant and fussy, kinda like all the \S/'s on Superman's suit in SR. Oh well, can't have it all!

    Cap should move like Achilles in TROY

    by Bruce of all Trades

    When Achilles and his Myrmidons take the beach of Troy, Achilles basically leads his men while moving with super-agility and utilizing his shield to take cover. Those speed + reflexes should be about the same for Cap on the battlefield.

  • June 2, 2010, 1:14 p.m. CST

    not bad at all

    by nostairway

    Much better than the other pictures we saw. If this is what it actually looks like I'd be perfectly happy with it, although I still want the wings on the helmet. They could just paint them on for all I care.

    I can live with it, but Cap always looks silly to me.

    by Royston Lodge

    Getting rid of the white A on his forehead would make it less silly for me.<p> Blacking out his eyes the same as they do for Batman would also help. There's just something silly-looking about the way his mask looks.<p> As always, keep in mind that I'm NOT a Captain America fan, so my opinions may be moot at best.

  • June 2, 2010, 1:19 p.m. CST

    By the way, we don't know the context of these

    by schadenfreudian

    If they bring Cap into a modern age at some point during the movie (maybe towards the end), they may give him a more updated costume, which may be what we're looking at here. <br> Either way, I'm taking a wait-and-see position, even though I think this looks decent.

  • June 2, 2010, 1:20 p.m. CST

    This is his WWII outfit

    by Chuck_Cobra

    Did no one read Ultimates? Or even the modern 616 Cap comics? During all the WWII flashbacks he wears an outift similar to this. But when he is state-side or when he wakes up in present day he has the more classic Captain America suit. Hopefully they go this route...and give him the Wings. He looks bald without them. But for his Combat WWII suit this looks pretty great.

    Overall, I Dig It . . .

    by Dave I

    I like it, maybe the helmet will grow on me. It looks a little too, streamlined/bald/something without something to break it up. Either a (slightly) more pronounced lip on the helmet, or the "wings" and I think it would look better. However . . .<p><p>Overall, I'm not complaining. I also think the more exposure to it the more I'll get used to it. I really want to like it, and appreciate the fine line they have to walk with a character like this.<p><p>Next step is really the hard part; make a good movie out of it!<p><p>-Cheers

    All things considered it's not a bad looking costume, and I don't mind the lack of wings, but this does take place during WWII, right? Did they even make fabric like that back then? I know this takes place in a fictional universe, but it just seems kind of anachronistic to me.

    I've been a huge Cap fan for years and always wondered how his suit would look when represented on film. This is a nice combination of the Ultimates look, the regular Cap costume, and a modernized film version. But again, this is still just a concept drawing. I'm still wondering how the costume will translate when it's actually put on Chris Evans and filmed.

    This is the modern day costume, folks.

    by Peter Franks

    Cap may very well carry the kite shield in WWII and his costume will certainly be made of materials more of that time period. If they're this spot-on with the modern day threads, I'd expect a spectacular 1940's era suit as well.

  • June 2, 2010, 2:14 p.m. CST

    Nice design...but is it for WWII or modern day???

    by JDanielP

    I'm of the opinion that this actually looks more modern with a retro vibe, rather than a suit made during WWII. <P>With THAT said, I'm not sure WHAT to think. It really depends on how it is worked into the movie, as to what time period. If the movie depicts Captain America in World War 2 and later in modern day, I would prefer more contrast in the designs. If this suit was for WWII, I would prefer a helmet (perhaps one to fit over the headpiece that is pictured here) and goggles, and I would have classic seams (nothing fancy), and make the armor APPEAR more accurate to the time. <P>If this is modern day Captain America, I would make the gloves and boots match the red of those suspenders. <P>For what it's worth, this opinion comes from a trained artist and fan.

    Cap without wings is like.....

    by Joe Huber

    Spider-Man without the Spider. Batman without the bat on his chest. The wings are another American symbol. And you can say, he has enough American symbolism with the red/white/blue but the wings stand for the national bird and a huge symbol for American freedom. That's why it is missing. Plus the mask looks naked without it. Screams "Something's missing!" I'm sure someone could design it and make it look cool. My cousin used to draw/paint eagles and they looked awesome. Still much better than the previous version, though suspenders don't look right. I know it's supposed to be a function for his parachuting but it should be more streamlined. I mean it's ok the way it is here. The shield though is awesome, much better than the one in the Iron Man movies.

    by FrankTheTank

    I think the lack of 'eye black' around the character's eyes is an interesting choice.

It'll be interesting to see how that translates to actual photos and lighting.

    by Wes_Reviews_

    ...or wing-like designs on each side of the head, and this design is perfect. The head just looks odd blank on both sides. Looks too much like Bullseye without them. Surely the talented costume designers working on this film could come up with some type of design (if wings were deemed too "cheesy" or whatever the reason is for their absence in this design) that would work. Leaving one recognizable element out of the Cap's signature speaks more of laziness. Maybe some type of chrome "earpiece" type designs could be added. It needs SOMETHING. Otherwise, good work.

    Kate Moss,in Ultimates 2 Cap America goes in Iraq

    by ominus

    and destroys a factory which was building nuclear bombs.that was pure propaganda inside the comic since in reality Saddam didnt even have a fucking army capable to fight,not nuclear weapons.and the comic was written by a Scottish asshole.do you understand what i am trying to say?<br /><p>Captain America is a very difficult character to use properly,because regardless how much you want to do a great and sincere job with this character,its very easy to mishandle him and make him misunderstood by the audience.Its not strange that the character was rebooted 5 times until it had the fortune to arrive into Ed Brubaker's skilled hands,who has done a marvelous job with Cap until now.<br /><p>Personally i want Ed Brubaker to be the consultant of the character in the movie production.but i am reading that Bendis or Whedon might be the consultant instead,something which is not very promising.and if they intend to totally follow the Ultimate road for this character,then i am sorry but the worldwide audience is not going to like this version of Cap very much.

    by thorback

    The suit is crap. It lacks the wings (this work well in movie) with stupid straps instead of stripes, muscle is not defined anywhere. This is not our Captain. Poor Steve.

    Guys its one thing to judge some drawn pics

    by ominus

    and its totally another thing to watch the actor wearing the actual uniform.which means that not only the uniform might change in order to aesthetically suit better the physical appearance of the actor,but it also means that the real suit will give a different impression from the one that we are getting from these pictures right now.

    You Know What? Screw it.

    by Dave I

    Go all comics. Full, bright, sky blue, blood red, whiter-than-white white, wings-on-helmet, red fold-down wader boots, red gloves, bright bulls-eye star on his chest, glowing A on his head, bright shiny shield with the best bulls-eye outside of an archery class, the whole 9-yards. Screw going for realism. Forget that he's fighting with real soldiers in WWII, or that we have a greater awareness of what war's like. Forget muted colors that might have some chance of being somewhat practical in blending in when moving a whole army so you don't get yourself and your fellow soldiers shot. Just make him a symbol of American patriotism.<p><p>I know he's a comic book hero, and a symbol of patriotism. But if people are going to complain because the producers try to cater to common sense in war and the fact that being part of a platoon means trying to not draw fire to your band of brothers, then just go balls to the wall and make him a live-action cartoon on film. I hate to say it, but I don't think they can win. Quasi-realistic, and we'll get the griping we have now from the fan boys. True to the comics, and people are going to be starkly aware of how that would get Rogers killed (because, even though he's a super-soldier, he's not Superman), or at least everybody around him killed. Either way, it's going to split audiences. At least if these talkbacks are any indication.<p><p>So yeah. Good luck with this, Hollywood!<p><p>-Cheers

    by Dead_Kate_Moss

    I have. The majority of the world haven't, and don't see Captain America as an uber-patriot kicking the shit out of America's enemies, they see him as just another Marvel superhero. If they haven't heard of him, depends if the movie looks good.<p> If he's kicking Nazi ass in the trailer everything's peachy. If he's invading Iran singing I'm A Yankee-Doodle-Dandy, possibly a problem. But I don't think he'll be doing that. <p>As for the costume, meh it could be worse, but I still want wings and red boots/gauntlets, at least for the modern costume.

    Cap needs WINGS ON HIS HELMET. Fix it, Marvel!

    by Timstuff

    I don't get why Marvel has been trying to ditch the wings on Cap's mask/helmet for so many years. They are a fundamental characteristic of his silhouette. Why don't they take away the wing's on Thor's helmet while they're at it and turn him into a generic looking medieval soldier? Captain American needs to have wings on his helmet, otherwise he just looks like a generic bald dude with an A on his head. It's as great an offense as taking away Batman's ears or Daredevil's horns.

Like LaserPants said..."You Wear The Camoflage... I'll Wear The Bright Blue Unitard!". They might as well use that as the key origin scene, because nothing else would be any less ridiculous.

    Not intended for you

    by Star Hump

    Did you grow up reading Captain America and Avengers comics? Did you enjoy watching Cap fling his boomerang-like shield and rally his team and overcome incredible odds in his red buccaneer boots, his winged cowl and his chainmail tunic? Yeah, me too.<p> That's not what we're going to see in the Captain America and Avenegers movies. These movies are not intended for fans of the character(s). They're designed for the average theatergoer who has absolutely no fucking idea who Captain America is.<p> Oh yeah, they'll throw fans a bone and put in a little detail here or there, but they usually manage to fuck that up anyway.<p> I'm amazed they actually put an A on his helmet and a white star on his chest. Why not go with Captain America dressed in all black kevlar? Think like Nolan!

    Don't think this is the WWII costume...

    by Doctor Cosmic

    Instead, I have a feeling these images give away that this movie will be book-ended by scenes from the modern day. Fury, Stark, and Thor find Cap frozen and defrost him. As he begins to awaken, the WWII flashbacks begin. The movie climaxes where it began, with Cap in the ice, though this time, the first time. Then the film closes with Cap coming to, getting this suit, and then meeting the newly-formed Avengers. Doc

    by Dead_Kate_Moss

    It was a mess after Normandy, the Nazis are often wearing muted blue/grey... they don't really blend in to the background. Kirby's own memories of WW2 as a scout seem to indicate both sides either knew where the enemy was or stumbled into them in chaotic Europe. And even so, it makes perfect sense (in Caps world) that he might be more brightly coloured to draw fire towards his BULLET-PROOF SHIELD.

How complicated is that? This costume is beyond cheesy-- it looks like someone trying very hard to look stupid and succeeding. By the way, is this costume supposed to exist during WWII? This is his USO costume? Jack Kirby must be very happy in his grave that someone finally came along to fix that crap uniform he designed. Way to go Joe Johnson!! Screw Kirby!!

    To all the TOO MODERN for WWII haters

    by JackSlater4

    Neoprene foam wetsuits first appeared in the 1950's and were later sandwiched, with thin sheets of tougher material such as nylon, so it stands to reason S.H.E.I.L.D. could have it earlier.<P> Pilots were already wearing leather in WWI and WWII.<P> The first usage of the term Flak Jacket refers to the armour originally developed by the Wilkinson Sword company during World War II to help protect Royal Air Force (RAF) air personnel from the flying debris and shrapnel thrown by German anti-aircraft guns' high-explosive shells (flak itself is an abbreviation for the German word for "anti-aircraft gun")<br> The jacket consisted of manganese plates sewn into a waistcoat made of ballistic nylon (a material engineered by the DuPont company); therefore, flak jackets functioned as an evolved form of plate armour or brigandine.<P> During World War II, flak jackets and steel helmets were worn by US Navy personnel on aircraft carriers during battle, since the ships and especially their flight decks offered little protection for their crew. The jackets were supposed to protect against shrapnel and heat.<P> Aramid fibers are a class of heat-resistant and strong synthetic fibers. They are used in aerospace and military applications, for ballistic rated body armor fabric, in bicycle tires, and as an asbestos substitute.<P> Aromatic polyamides were first introduced in commercial applications in the early 1960s, with a meta-aramid fiber produced by DuPont under the tradename Nomex. This fiber, which handles similarly to normal textile apparel fibers, is characterized by its excellent resistance to heat, as it neither melts nor ignites in normal levels of oxygen. It is used extensively in the production of protective apparel, air filtration, thermal and electrical insulation as well as a substitute for asbestos. Meta-aramid is also produced in the Netherlands and Japan by Teijin under the tradename Teijinconex, in China by SRO Group (China) under the trade name X-Fiper , Yantai under the tradename New Star and a variant of meta-aramid in France by Kermel under the tradename Kermel. Based on earlier research by Monsanto Company and Bayer, a fiber - para-aramid - with much higher tenacity and elastic modulus was also developed in the 1960s-1970s by DuPont and Akzo Nobel, both profiting from their knowledge of rayon, polyester and nylon processing. Much work was done by Stephanie Kwolek in 1961 while working at DuPont, and that company was the first to introduce a para-aramid called Kevlar in 1973. A similar fiber called Twaron with roughly the same chemical structure was introduced by Akzo in 1978. Due to earlier patents on the production process, Akzo and DuPont had a patent war in the 1980s. Twaron is currently owned by the Teijin company<P> Once again, it would make sense in this world for S.H.I.E.L.D. and Howard Stark to have this tech prior to the 60's.<P> I would also like to point out that there is no such thing as super soldier serum, vibranium, adamantium and Thor, the God of Thunder.

    Time Period

    by atalcot

    Is that what he is supposed to look like in 1943 or 2010? Since I thought this was supposed to be a period piece, I guess I was assuming that he would have a costume more similar to the Ultimate WWII era costume with the classic shield and get modern looking armor like the picture above in the Avengers movie. Don't get me wrong, I like this look, but it seems out of place for the 1940s.

    about realism and the wings

    by ominus

    some other guy above said something very important:<br />its ridiculously stupid if you think its realistic to have a soldier dressed with a bright,colored uniform like Cap's and have him go in convert operations during WW2 or any other war.The uniform works in the comics,but sure as hell it doesnt work in a movie,at least in a realistic one and not a cartoony one.<br /><p>Cap America is not Superman whose colored uniform with the pants out can work in a realistic/cartoony movie.Cap America is a man with enhanced human powers,but he is not immortal who doesnt care about getting harmed from conventional weapons.He is mortal fighting in a war and using a bright,vivid,colored uniform like the above instead of a camouflaged military uniform is pure suicide thus its totally unrealistic.<br /><p>So having the wings and making him look ridiculous when fighting the Nazis,should be the least of the problems the producers should worry about.Unless ofc they are going for a cartoony movie and not a realistic one,which in this case they should have kept the wings since they are essential part of the original cartoony uniform.

  • June 2, 2010, 5:03 p.m. CST

    A big letter "A" on his forehead is way cornier than wings.

    by Timstuff

    Why is it that Marvel thinks that getting rid of the wings on Cap's mask somehow makes him look less corny, when he's got a giant letter A on his head? That is a much sillier and kitschier design element than having wings on his mask/helmet is, and yet that is present in almost all versions of Cap. If you're going to mess with his mask design in the name of being more "serious" you have to get rid of the letter A, too. Personally, I say leave both the wings and the A in place, and don't mess his mask up under the pretentious notion that you are making him look more "serious."

    It's too busy. Those buckled suspenders/shoulder pads look ridiculous, and would inhibit his agility. Dude is not playing football, he needs to be able to raise his arms overhead! And those pouches on the front of the belt look like they would also restrict movement. So chainmail is not practical, OK. But why not kevlar mesh to preserve the classic look, instead of that cumbersome padded leather? This should be a middle-step outfit, like Spider-Man and Iron Man went through a few suits, Cap should have a reference to a crude effort like this before arriving at the look that we know and love.

    It's very 40's, I hope its a period film. They should lose the 'A', though. The cool thing about the costume is that it actually look functional with the straps and whatnot, a little more practical than your standard issue bat-devil gear. But the 'A' kills that. I've never been a Captain America fan but I've grown more fond of him as a character, over the years. I hope they get this film right.

    What they could do is take that same approach, but instead of three lines, have the "wings" be the twin captains stripes on each side of his helmet. Displays his rank while helping to add some variance to his blue headedness. That would be a nice "realistic" approach to wings on cap's head.

    forget about realism

    by Star Hump

    The minute you start thinking realism has a place in a superhero world you torpedo the entire story. That's why most of these movies suck.<P> These characters and stories are all-out fantasy and should be treated as such. If you're like Nolan and think Batman should wear kevlar because it's more realistic then you've missed the boat entirely.<p> If you think Captain America shouldn't have wings and an A on his head and throw a shield because it wouldn't work realistically on a battlefield, then you've completely missed the point.<p> And since the movie industry behind these films and the ignorant audiences that line up to go see them in droves THINK EXACTLY THIS WAY, these movies will continue to suck.<p> Next up: Why it's not realistic for a man to bang a cane on the ground and transform into the Norse of God of Thunder. "That would never happen in the real world!" brays punter #341 and Mr. Movie suit. "We need to make this realistic!"

    by JumpinJehosaphat

    You can't possibly expect reason from this cesspool. For the sake of argument, let's say that Captain America ends up being a very solid, successful and entertaining movie. It gets generally favorable reviews and is seen as holding its own against some of the better comic films of the past decade or so. The community here would rather hemorrhage internally at the sight of a costume they don't like than derive pleasure from the film as a whole. They would rather grief themselves and others within earshot into having zero joy from an enjoyable film, simply to bask in their own sense of superiority regarding one design element separated from its context. So, rhine1784, don't expect such a self-destructive geek mentality to be rational. Common sense is anything but common.

    The Only Way To Make This Film Work Internationally Is...

    by Media Messiah

    ...to make Captain America fight against some 5th Column force that threatens to betray America from within...and destroy the rest of the world as a result, with the primary scheme to destroy Europe, the Middle East, Asia...and South America, etc. There is a lot of anti-American sentiment in the world, much deserved, and some not, but the only way to blunt that, and to to attract foreign audiences to this movie and its namesake, is by showing Captain America as being a part of the American system, and then being an outsider to that system...ala Jason Bourne, working to correct what is secretly wrong with it, to stop a hidden cancer inside that he discovers; in that way, he becomes not just Captain America, but an everyman for the world as a symbol of freedom, representing a country, America, that is made-up of all people of the world--all nations, colors, religions, classes, and creeds. That should be the thrust, and the message of this movie--and can serve to attract all demos, nationally, and internationally. If they don't go with this angle, the film will feel like American propaganda...and will not go over well outside of the U.S.<BR><BR>I would even do segments where the Tuskegee Airmen help him in a air battle scene, and similar fair.

    PS: About The Costume

    by Media Messiah

    It should be a military uniform, battle fatigues from a special unit of soldiers, special forces if you will, who are wiped-out, and the only member left is the Captain. This will help to explain away the costume, as something less of a costume, and more of a uniform, with reason.

    by fiester

And will we be seeing Nick Fury in this WW2-set film?

    PS: About the costume

    by JackSlater4

    I think it needs to be an Idependence Day style alien biosuit left behind from a Skrull that Howard Stark caught, beat up and caged in his back yard.<P> Then S.H.E.I.L.D. reverse engineers the new technology and patriots it up so the aliens and everyone else know not to fuck with us and that is why fanboys should mostly be ignored.

    by Jim Jam Bongs

    The wings represent eagle wings, right? Maybe the company/platoon/squad that Cap is part of or leads uses eagle wings as their insignia. It would then make sense for Cap to apply the wings to the sides of his helmet, as a personal customization he does to his uniform.

  • June 2, 2010, 8:20 p.m. CST

    Costume doesn't look that bad.

    by BurnedNotice_Dude

    Only suggestions I would make are:<p>1)Somehow add the wings to the mask. Paint them on or actually add them. It looks very bare. <p>2) Get rid of the brown on the uniform. Make the gloves red, white, or blue. Those are the colors of his uniform. Not brown. Also, I would go with darker colors. They would look outstanding. Seriously, look at football teams. Some of those with the darker oolors in their uniforms really standout.<p>3) Get rid of the suspenders. Add the stripes.<p>Again, it doesn't look that bad. Just tweak it somewhat. The shield looks great. Let's fix the rest.

    by stwolf

    That phrase has been said on here countless times about numerous comicbook-inspired films. And it has never ever been proven true. Ever. You're looking at the final look. His boots won't magically turn red by the end of the film, gay little wings won't appear on his head by the end of the film, and his pants certainly won't turn into the lower half of a ballet leotard by the end of the film. It is what it is. Get over it. I personally think it looks good. It might even be a bit too comicbooky.

    *IF* that alleged "nod" involves a more faithful adaptation of his original comicbook suit, it will be intended by the producers to convince you fanboys that men don't look very good in campy ballet leotards.

    Evans is the right age

    by MrD

    Steve Rogers was born in 1917. He enlisted, as a college student, in 1940 - age 23. He was frozen near the end on the war, 1945, so he was ~28. Chris Evans is 28 (28 next week). And for the record, its been 6 years since he first played the Human Torch. To think that he should still be stereotyped playing young, early 20s roles more than a half decade later is laughable.

    The more I look at the concepts the more I like it. First impression was putting the wings on the helmet but they may have tried it out and it may not have worked. So hats off to the design crew. Good job!

    Not sure -

    by j_man

    But aren’t comic books fantasy? Why do people insist on setting everything in the real world. When someone makes a film, its “how will this translate” uh, I don’t know, just do the damn thing? Superman worked out just fine with his bright blue and red costume. Reeve looked the part and everyone treated Superman seriously, so did the audience. Caps costume is just as bright and he is supposed to be wearing the colors of the flag. Are we saying the flag is too colorful now? Why does it all have to be realistic? The subject matter is not, so why not take it for what it is. Comics are modern day mythology, so treat it that way. Or should Zeus have a mechanical lightening generator? I honestly don’t much care for what they do with these films anymore as the comics I love will still be in my possession, but I just wish they would just make a FANTASY adventure film that is fun with a good story. You wanna take a serious angle? Go for it! I liked the Ang Lee Hulk (but most hated it?) It was serious, but Hulk still looked like Hulk and they edited it like a comic, but no, not good enough. Everyone wants this gritty realism. I just wanted Captain America to be the damn hero I read in comics with the proper colors and costume. Why is it so hard to translate it to film? No one has ever answered that (at least not to my satisfaction.) Whatever, take my comments for what they are, my opinion, if you don’t agree that’s fine, but I just want a live action representation of what I read. Not a “reimagined” version. I don’t just don’t get it. People who claim it doesn’t translate obviously don’t have the imagination to visualize it, and also, I have a this feeling that guys who like heroes want everyone to think they are cool and by making these heroes darker and more real, they seem to cooler. Well not to me. I want what I read. Period. After watching these films, I pick up the comics and see that they are nothing alike? So what’s the ultimate goal here? Also, why wait for Avengers to do things. Wait, lets save Mandarin for Iron Man part 37, yeah, and lets show the origin of Iron Man’s father, and then we can see the real Iron Man later???? This is what is happening. Iron Man was a bad example here, but you get my meaning. “Oh don’t worry, we’ll get the real captain America in part 2.” Just my 2 cents.

    can we compromise on the red?

    by CAPTAIN_AMERICAS_COCK_SHAPED_HELMET

    I think the brown does look a bit out of place, but understand the desire to change out the cartoony red, which is a bit garish combined with blue as a color scheme. How about some red accents, maybe on some embroidery or other embelishments, on the leather?

Granted, each of the Marvel movies were not great but at least they have a film library for a number of their characters.

    I would also like to point out you did way too much research on the status of spandex in 1950 to act like a modicum of internal logic isn't important. <br> <br> Yes, we all get that this is sci-fi. I've heard the song and dance before. But as fellow "haters" Jon Favreau and Christopher Nolan understand, you have to at least try and make your world seem credible. If this design is intended for use in WWII then it could be worse. At least it's snazzy, and maybe the way it looks won't seem as bad in context. However my first impression is that something a little more period authentic would have been nice. Sorry that opinion bothers you.

    Love the shield but...

    by ninpobugei

    The costume is too big and bulky...too many straps, too much padding, and what's with all the lines in the fabric? It's like the wardrobe people got carried away and decided it needed a little Spiderman in it. Captain America should be entirely purposeful, not decorative just for the sake of being decorative. His costume is flashy so that it makes a statement (making him the living embodiment of the flag), but otherwise it should be somewhat more purposeful and...well...less bulky and cheesy with the details.</p> <p> Also, Captain America was always a serious acrobat, but that costume is a nightmare for mobility. And the helmet would not only destroy peripheral vision, but he wouldn't be able to hear out of it, either. Not good. I think they were moving in the right direction, they just went a little overboard (typical of Hollywood). Also, it's interesting that he's wearing a gun holster in one photo, but not in the others.

    by ninpobugei

    The straps and shield are bright red, but the gloves and boots are brown???? That really doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense. It doesn't make the suit more realistic or purposeful by making those items brown when the other aspects are a nice bright red. Just plain stupid.</p> <p> I'm hoping they fix the issues with the modern-day version of the costume...fixing all the issues that Cap. would have had with the original.</p> <p> I'm also curious to know why Cap's shield was in pieces in IRON MAN 2.

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    he is meant to be a symobl, the wings are part of this symbol, his outfit is not really that practical (from a soldier's perspective), its not camo coloured, he had a big shiny shield, he has a big A on his forehead. You either have him in full army gear, or you have him standout like he was intended to, none of this inbetween nonsense.

  • June 3, 2010, 2:23 a.m. CST

    My two cents:

    by rabidfnark

    It could look a hell of a lot worse. There were a million ways to screw this up, but I think they've avoided the major pitfalls (like giving him the black suit he wore when he was fired and went around as simply "The Captain," because they thought black leather would look better on the battlefield or something). Is it perfect? No, but they have all the right stuff in the mix, and if the movie is great (please, oh please, oh please) a few minor problems with the way the suit looks won't matter.

    by Dingbatty

    I live in an attic. And, anyone who does like this is a philistine. I can't believe people like the modern fashion designer-y stitching on this thing, and the unnecessary and tacky looking shoulder pads that have straps. Why are they strapped down? Wouldn't they need straps on the arms and neck as well? Talk about silly. Modern just means it'll date The Avengers movie quicker, as "modern" becomes "outdated" in a few years. There is a reason why the iconic suit has lasted as long as it has. Look at Iron Man -- there are only so many permutations they can go through until they'll have to go back to square one. The iconic look for Cap is fine, as long as it is made with quality materials and construction.

    Lose the Shoulder Pads and Suspenders

    by The Wraith

    I hope these are just works in progress and not the final look. I can accept the Ultimates inspired costume for present-day Cap but the straps and shoulder pads look a little contrived. I'm sure someone thought they were being clever by disguising the stripes but now there's too much negative space (white) around the waist. I also agree that the helmet would look better with wings painted on the sides but can accept that it doesn't have them since they're not depicted in the Ultimates books either. This helmet gives Cap a look reminiscent of that from the old serials, which come to think of it wasn't that cool. But, then again, I also think it would look better if it didn't cover the ears. Anyway, I hope the final design does Cap justice the way the Spider-Man and Iron Man movies did for them.

    ...because despite a solid effort with the sleeves and torso of Thor's design, it LOOKS TOO MODERN. If you want modern touches, don't leave the Viking influence so far behind. <P>The bracelets, pants, and boots should have a more classic influence (Jim Starlin). Rememeber Thor's yellow boots from the 70's, with the high points at the knees...and how the lower leg had the look of straps? I would follow that influence of design with the exception of color. The bracelets, boots, and belt should be MORE influenced from the past. And most of all, Thor should have the helmet. <P>Unfortunately, their modern design won't allow the visual conflict of the classic helmet...so my hopes of Thor having the helmet are GONE. <P>Design = C-

Though I don't see this since Joss Whedon is writing Captain America and Avengers. I also hope they don't skip on the shield slinging and acrobatic fighting style. If Captain America is just some military guy on magic steroids barking orders and having nothing else extraordinary about him it will be so dull. Not having the wings IS a mistake. We've seen plenty of modern artist(most notable John Cassaday) update the wings and the chainmail and make it look cool. I know it seems like a silly thing to nit pick but there are somethings that the powers that be never trust to suspension of disbelief whether it be wings on Captain America's mask/helmet, The Phoenix force on Jean Grey or an adaptation of I Am Legend that includes ACTUAL FUCKING VAMPIRES. Those of us with verisimilitude and imagination know how cool these thing would be on film but all the short sighted, simpleton crybabies of the world outnumber us. It's sad.

    On the topic of Thor...

    by thecomedian

    I hope they don't have him wear that costume in Branaugh's film and then lose the cape and the arms for Avengers so he looks like "Ultimate Gay Environmentalist Leather Boy". God this is all Mark Millar's fault which means really it's Warren Ellis' fault for making The Authority so awesome. If the Authority wasn't a hit then Millar and Quitely would have never done their run. We would have never seen 'The Americans' and Quesadilla and Jemas would have never hired Millar to turn the Avengers into a watered down version of the murdering fascist parody they did in The Authority. Jim Lee's Heroes Reborn crap would have been a better template for Marvel movies than the Ultimate verse and thats saying something because Heroes Reborn was garbage too.

    by imagegod

    it looks awesome BUT it looks like a modern day suit, not something from th3 40's. if they were to update it after he gets thawed what will they change? change the brown to red and get rid of the pouches? that's all they'd need to change as the rest looks modern. it seems the designers were afraid to give him the baggy clothes with real helmet look... a shame, although at least he definitely looks like Cap to me and is far better than that supposed Thor get-up.

    More thoughts

    by j_man

    The Cap costume is frustrating. On first blush, it looks like Cap. But then you realize that the red stripes on his abdomen are almost by accident due to the straps (so, if he takes them off, he doesn’t have red there? Why?). With the feathers missing, you kinda realize that they were an integral part of the iconic image and are missed. Now he looks like some bald guy. The colors are stupid and you realize that the filmmakers missed the point of Captain America. In this jaded age, a super-powered character whose costume is based on the American Flag boosting the morale of a nation that actually didn’t care much about fighting WWII in Europe (they cared more about fighting the Japanese) doesn’t relate to folks who want “gritty” and “realistic”. The fact is that he’s a living embodiment of the American Flag. How would you like it if the American flag were muted to the colors of the movie version of Captain America? If you think about it, his colors weren’t “impractical” on the battlefield. He was a super soldier. His mission is different than that of the rest of the American troops. Sure, Cap’s bright colors would attract the fire and troops of the Nazis – so he can deflect the firepower with his invincible shield and draw it away from the rest of the American troops, and he can beat the crap out of the oncoming Nazi troopers with his enhanced super-strength, distracting them while the rest of the American troops can go about their business of winning the war! Duh. These guys just don’t get it.

    Ultimates Cap = looks like fucking SHIT. Do the REAL Cap.

    by Big Dumb Ape

    In my opinion, the look of the Ultimates Cap is truly shitacular. It's fucking LAME. Right above my post, Shogunshin posted to links to that look (for those unfamiliar with it) and it would just be fucking LAUGHABLE in a movie and on the big screen. Seriously, the Ultimates version doesn't even make any fucking sense -- it's one of those bullshit things done in comics where a comics creator thought he'd change stuff because he wanted to put his particular take on a character, and franly Mark Millar's take on Cap was about as rancid as any shit I crap out when I have diarrhea.<p>And enough with this bullshit "Cap needs to look realistic and his outfit needs to look like the Ultimates version, like a WWII" soldier's outfit" argument. For crying out loud, its a FUCKING BIG BUDGET SUMMER POPCORN SUPERHERO MOVIE. Seriously, you think anyone buying a ticket for this thing...a movie about a guy who gets a needle shoved into his arm and turns into a superhero...who is THEN going meet OTHER superheros in his debut film (The INVADERS)...and who is THEN going to team up with even MORE costumed superhero names like "Iron Man", "Thor" and "The Hulk" and even "Giant Man" or "The Wasp" (depending on they round out the team) to form a whole GROUP of costumed people called "The Avengers" should be based on REALITY? Are you fucking kidding me???<P>Audiences would laugh the Ultimates version right off the screen. They would instantly be saying "Wow, what happened? The Spider-Man suit was perfect... Iron Man looked cool... they even forked out the money to GGI the Hulk, so he looked cool...but I guess Marvel chinced out and couldn't afford to create a decent Cap costume."<p>Not to mention, just imagine the bad press Marvel would get from people crying "What, you're too chicken shit to actually do a Captain America costume? Because you're afraid foreign audiences won't want to see the American flag so prominently onscreen?" Anyone who is pushing that line of logic has their head up their ass. The movie's called CAPTAIN AMERICA. So, I have news for you: if foreign ticket buyers are going to be anti-American in their sentiment, it won't fucking matter what he's wearing and you should do something more in line with the classic Kirby design SINCE YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE ANYWAY.<p> J_Man in his post above explains it best WHY something more in line with the classic Kirby design should be done. Emotionally it was supposed to inspire the troops in the field and it WAS supposed to be fucking bright and look like the flag. J_Man (and others who've pointed this out) are right that the flag color scheme even make sense in a WWII movie, since then Cap would be leading troops and attracting gunfire toward himself and his shield.<p>But the main reason is incredibly obvious: The whole fucking POINT of the classic Kirby design -- and whole POWER to the character itself -- is that he IS supposed to look (to any enemy) like a LIVING, BREATHING AMERICAN FLAG COMING FUCKING RIGHT AT YOU. Helloooo! THAT is the symbolism and effect the costume is clearly SUPPOSED to have.<p>Snookeroo said it best when he said "Captain America can carry a huge bright red, white and blue shield, but giving him red gloves and boots is too much? Fuckheads." He also posted this link below, where he made some adjustments to make the costume look more Cap appropriate by simply adding the wings (to symbolize the American Eagle) and changing the glove/boot color. I agree, make the colors a touch brighter and more flag-like, increase the size of the star on his chest a slight bit too (which someone else suggested, and likewise offered up an aero-look wing design that was nicely done too), and THEN you've got something...:<p>http://tinyurl.com/2bqnlgl<p>All in all, not a bad design. I'm actually shocked that this could look fairly cool. But to use a football analogy, they've gotten the costume to the 5-yard line. So tweak it a final bit and push it over the goal line!

    BROWN gloves & boots make NO FUCKING SENSE

    by Big Dumb Ape

    Oh, one final rant. Giving Cap brown gloves and boots makes NO fucking sense. Think about it...<p>You're Steve Rogers. You've been given the super soldier serum by the military and turned into Captain America, a superhero. So now either you...or perhaps in script for the film, the military itself...decides to create a costume. An actual costume for you to run around in.<P>So you make this thing that's red, white and blue and you pattern it after the American flag. So you go out and get a form fitting helmet and even paint a big "A" on it...you put a big star on your chest, like the field of stars on the flag...you decide to carry around a bright red, white and blue shield...and you even give yourself a utility pouch belt. But THEN you notice it crosses over the white of your torso, so you paint JUST THAT CERTAIN PART OF THE STRAPS RED, so it will look like the strips of the flag. And let's face it, I'm going to assume he painted that portion red or it was specially made that way (again, by the military which is outfitting him) <P>Well, gee -- if you've gone to ALL that trouble, to where you've even thought about creating a "red stripe look" -- why the hell WOULDN'T you go that one final extra step and self-paint or have made red boots and gloves to complete the look?<p>So given all the OTHER suspension of disbelief that a movie watcher is supposed to have for a person who decides to strap on a fucking costume to then do incredible things on-screen, why the hell WOULDN'T Steve Rogers (or the military) have thought of red gloves and boots given the visual look they were clearly going for ANYWAY?<p>Again, it's like my football analogy above of getting to the 5-yard line, but then you got lazy and didn't cross the goal line. Even for a summer superhero movie, I would find it pretty silly and laughable that somehow IN the movie they try to explain a guy dressing up this way...patterning himself after the flag...and yet then either Rogers or the Pentagon was too fucking stupid to look at the final outfit and realize brown is NOT a color on the flag.

    The "A" isn't needed

    by Bruce of all Trades

    What, you need a fucking initial to remind you that he represents America? He's already got a fucking flag wrapped around him. <p><p>To me it looks like how jocks and bullies would write words on nerds' face or back or whatever to humiliate them. Like someone wrote it on his head while he slept and it stands for "asshole" or something.

    DON'T PAY TO SEE IT!!!

    by The Wraith

    If you have a problem with the costume or think the movie is going to suck, then don't pay to see it. Every time you buy a movie ticket, you are casting a vote for what Hollywood thinks you want to see. They don't take any of your reasons for seeing the movie into consideration. They just look at how much money it made and crank out more of the same crap if it did well. You have the power to stop Hollywood from doing this to your favorite properties by not buying their tickets and supporting the people who keep screwing them up. Would your life really have been incomplete if you hadn't seen Ang Lee's Hulk? Elektra? The Fantastic Four movies? Indy 4? They were horrible wastes of time that probably just left you feeling unsatisfied anyway. Do yourself a favor and save your money. If you must see it, then let some other guy rent it and just borrow it. Pass this on. Tell you friends. Twitter it. Facebook it. Just get the word out and stop this from happening over and over again.

    Looks pretty good

    by CaptainTripps

    although I think it does need the wings to break up the helmet a little. Besides, thats just the way Cap is supposed to look. Speaking of which, am I the only one who misses the chain mail design of his chest armor? I think it would look better than the molded leather look going on in these images...but that's just one fellows opinion.

    Big Dumb Ape & Brown vs. Red, Depends?

    by Dave I

    First, hats off to a fairly compelling argument. I'm still not totally in agreement, but you make a decent point about demoralizing the opponent. I'll argue it doesn't matter because, him being a superhero and demolishing the Axis Army and totally devastating the opposition will do that anyway. Still, I'd say you articulate your points pretty well.<p><p>Second, the gloves & boots being red . . . Nobody who wants the bright American Flag colors is going to agree with me, but the boots & gloves are the most likely to get dirty from tromping through mud, picking stuff up, shooting guns, etc. It could make for a more practical choice for concealing dirt (if they're paying any mind to real world sensibilities), and not as likely to soil the American Flag colors.<p><p>Final point; Just because somebody like me disagrees about the color scheme and is arguing for some anchor in the real world does not mean we're morons who don't get it. We're just part of the audience, of both the movies AND the comics. If you look back, they have had to make allowances to characters and tweak the science. I can suspend disbelief on the technology they create. However, they are firmly planting themselves in a science fiction world. They created a fake-yet-practical science for Tony Stark in the Iron Man movies. They have had to change things about Hulk as we learn things about radiation (and things that were given as explanation for his genesis are fairly widely known to be impossible). I believe they've modified the scientific explanation for the Fantastic Four (again, because as-written their origins don't make any sense given what we know about the science of things).<p><p>Without writing a book, I think they can go the all bright-colored living/breathing symbolic flag route, or the more pragmatic muted color, realism look, and have either work. There are just different strategies involved. The first, they have to explain (or ignore altogether) how he fits into modern warfare tactics, and maybe they just fly him in and he drops down, kicks tail, and then goes back to base and isn't part of a regular platoon. The second way, he's more natural looking and seems more period-specific which I think is kind of cool. Either way, the enemy is going to be able to figure out pretty quickly the soldier in ANY shade of blue (with red & white accents) zipping around like some a try-out for the Olympics and taking out large numbers of their companions with a flying shield is probably the Captain America super soldier fellow they've been hearing about.<p><p>Regardless, if they do a serious job with the acting and the physics of his combat and action, I've come to the point that I couldn't care less how they do the suit. They're not going to please everybody, so I'm not going to worry about it. I think the wings would help with how the profile of Captain America looks, but really that's not a major gripe of mine. And the color scheme, I'll deal with whatever they throw out realizing the different sides they have to try to please probably means they have to do some sort of compromise.<p><p>So it will come down to whether or not they can make a compelling Captain America-centric WWII movie. I think they can, and remain optimistic. Still, seeing all of the heated opinions on the cosmetics, I've disengaged from that. It's arguably the most iconic American-based hero ever. I'll let the actions decide if the character is a success more than his uniform.<p><p>-Cheers

    R.I.P. AVENGERS

    by NeoBaggins

    Chris Evans will single-handedly destroy the films from this point on because he is a joke as Captain America. He won't be taken seriously and you can't have an Avengers without a serious leader. He will be down played like Cyclops.

    The moment you envision Chris Evans goofy ass wearing it. Think about it, dumb ass Evans wearing that dick-head mask and about 50 pounds lighter than the guy in the artwork.

    The suit's Captain

    by MOONARROW

    Cap with belt and suspenders?!?!?! Remember the movie “Once Upon a Time in The West: “How can you trust a man who wears both a belt and suspenders? The man can’t even trust his own pants.” (Frank/heny Fonda) Honnestly, it’s ridicoulus, and stupid!

  • June 6, 2010, 8:15 a.m. CST

    For the people that cant figure it out...

    by JackSparrowJive

    This costume is based on the "Ultimate" version of Cap, not the classic version.Thats why there are no wings, and no stupid floppy red boots or gloves. For more info on Ultimate Cap, see this link: http://marvel.wikia.com/Steven_Rogers_(Earth-1610)

    Costume

    by grendel69

    I dont think thats the WW2 outfit, but the modern one. I dont like the suspenders that go around the shoulders, but other than that, think it looks great.

    finish wat u start

    by IronEDsFear

    Yes. The more believable the character the better. But cutting corners on suits began with x-men and spider-man. Yes all black leather suits are more realistic and I guess not having a web shooter is too….I guess. Each x-man had their own unique style/suit. I web shooter shows how smart parker is and also can add dramatic events when it runs the hell out. But I never saw how blowing white web out of his wrist was any better. Spider man has a WEB SHOOTER! Cap is a symbol of the United States of America. He is supposed to stand out because he is a super freaking solider! His most important job during the war was to inspired soldiers. So his suit looks like a flag because of that. If they wanted him to win the war alone he would have had a stealth suit and been a secret. FOR GOD SAKES HE HAS A HUGE SHIELD THAT LOOKS LIKE A TARGET!!!! SO PUT SOME ****ING WINGS ON HIS HELMET AND MATCHING RED GLOVES AND BOOTS. WHY THE HELL NOT??? SOMEONE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME! WOULD U REBUILD A FORD MUSTANG CORBA BUT LEAVE OFF THE ****ING COBRA EMBLEM??? WOULD U NOT GO BALLS DEEP IN PAMELA ANDERSON DURING THE BAY WATCH ERA??!!?!?!The movie already swings in the balance because of Chris Evans who I think is a long shot to even try and act like the leader that is captain America. SO Y MAKE CAP LOOK LIKE A BLUE BALLED DILIDO???!!!! LETS HEAR IT FOR FINISHING WAT U START….. LETS HEAR IT FOR WINGS

    Captain America forgot to drink his "Red Bull"

    by pooped_out_jedi

    I coulda sworn ALL of the images of Captain America have wings on his mask or helmet or whatever the hell you wanna call it. I hope the director caught that and pointed it out to the artist, who obviously has never really seen Captain America up close. Captain America's mask has wings, Where the hell are the WINGS, stupid?!

    why not the comic's look

    by BigC

    Costume changes for some super heroes can be good, but others can't.Christian Bales's costume in "The Dark Knight" was the right change. Brandon Routh's costume in "Superman Returns" didn't work. Wrong colors, among other changes, was a big factor. Chris Evans' costume in "Captain America" should be the same as it is in the comics, colors and all. Lose the wings if they must, but lose the helmet too.
