And Here's A Somewhat Official Picture Of Chris Evans As Captain America!

Published at: Jan. 13, 2011, 2:56 p.m. CST

Beaks here...

As cool as that picture of Andrew Garfield in his Spider-Man costume is (with artificial web-shooters!), I'm a little more excited about this scanned-from-Entertainment-Weekly photo of Chris Evans as Captain America for three reasons: 1) CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER comes out this year (July 22nd, 2011), 2) this is the first big-screen attempt at one of the last remaining A-list Marvel characters, and 3) I truly believe Joe Johnston and company knocked it out of the park when they cast Chris Evans as Steve Rogers. Oh, and I've also heard that Marvel is very happy with the film.

So here's Evans as Cap (I'm sure a high-res pic will be posted soon)!

    A much as I love comic books...

    by allykatD

    and all the characters and the stories, it's so hard to get behind these comic book movies because the costumes that look so cool in the comic book just look impaired in real life. They just don't translate no matter how hard the costume design team tries. It's not their fault, it's the fault of the medium they're copying, it wasn't meant to be filmed. I mean, I go see the movies and for the most part enjoy them, like spiderman and batman and Xmen, but always in the back of my mind, a voice is telling them that actually it all looks silly. Even Nolan couldn't keep Batman from looking a little goofy. Iron Man was the best of the bunch because the costume was an iron suit, so that worked. I'll probably go see this 'cause Chris Evan is hot and maybe they'll give us fangirls a scene without his shirt on.

    Misc. (suit, Chris Evans)

    by levithegreat

    1st I like the suit for the golden age suit. I am very interested to see the suit he will wear in the Avengers though. That is the one we will eventually see more of when you count the Avengers, and any Cap sequels. In regards to Evans I REALLY did not like that casting decision. The most defining quality of Cap is his nobility and I have never seen that in Evans. However he looks decent for the part and I give Marvel the benefit of the doubt on this. I think they have earned it based on the strength of their casting decisions so far, (Although I still wonder if the Skaarsgard kid would have made a better Thor), and will wait to decide if he is good in it or not. Also I honestly can not think of one actor who I think would make a perfect Captain America.

    Still not sold on Evans as Cap..

    by steverogers5

    Costume isn't too bad, though I never much cared for the Ultimates style chin guard.. My main problem is Evans as Cap. Feels too much like Val Kilmer as Batman. i.e Casting someone who seems more like a 'guy' than a 'Man' I would have liked to have seen an older, more manly Cap. That you could believe was a stand up take charge type of hero, who could believably go on to lead the Avengers. And yeah I know that those conscripted into the war were younger, but it could have been chalked up to the super soldier serum turning a younger guy into a man overnight, since it would already be developing his body.. I'm hoping Evans, can somehow accomplish a miracle and pull it off somehow, but I'm very much doubting that he can..

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 4:43 p.m. CST

    Captain America > Iron Man 2

    by Quake II

    I'm sure this movie will be 100x more entertaining than Iron Man 2. Shit, BioDome and the last 6 Michael Bay films were better than Iron Man 2. No wonder John Favreau is not coming back for a third film. The studio heads and toy people really fucked with that movie. The results are in every forced, overcrowded with characters scene. The Rocketeer was one of my favorite 90's films and a well constructed, well acted tribute to the 1930's comic. I have faith that Captain America will suprise the haters. Must be PG-13 and hopefully it features some crazy Nazi experimental stuff (ala Hellboy).

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 4:46 p.m. CST

    ...I've always thought Captain Austria had a lot more potential...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...the recurring pretzel symbolism lending itself to a braided design motif for the costume.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 4:51 p.m. CST

    I like the 1940s look to Cap's uniform.

    by kabong

    The faded quality from the scanning adds to the "old" style. His costume will get spiffier after he meets Tony Stark. Do we have to wait for the Avengers movie to see them haul their leader and inspiration out of the ice?

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 4:53 p.m. CST

    judaspriestly

    by eric haislar

    Thats the point, and one of the reasons he has a shield.

  • I'll reserve judgement on Chris Evans until I see him actually playing the role, but he looks sweet in the costume and really, that's half the job. The other half of the job is memorizing lines in a trailer and saying them in front of lights. Now I keep picturing Evans standing on set yelling "them!" because I reread my last line way too literally.

    Terrible.

    by Movietool

    I'll be the lone voice of dissent here. It sucks. Completely overdesigned. I agree making it out of spandex would have been all wrong for a WWII war movie, but they took it WAY too far. This doesn't look like Captain America. The grey straps - I tried to give them a chance but they're a disaster. They break up the colors so much that you don't know what you're looking at. Plus, the straps make it necessary to shrink down the iconic star a-la the stupid Superman Returns outfit. And what the hell is all that padding about? Different sizes, different depths, different materials, lines going in all different directions . . . I mean, the outfit looks lumpy. Captain America should not look lumpy. Busy, busy, busy. It's the superhero equivalent of the Michael Bay transformer designs. There's so much bullshit going on that you don't know what you're looking at. It's a hot mess. Boo.

    Costume looks realistic enough for WWII-era Cap, and based on the buzz around this movie, I'm hoping that it will be Iron Man/X-Men 2/Spider-Man 2-good, but only time will tell. Got a bad feeling about Thor, tho.

    by Sardonic

    Never found him particularly interesting, but the visual style+Hugo Weaving is good. Gotta admit though I don't have a lot of faith in Joe Johnston, who has proven multiple times to be wildly mediocre. Other than that though, I'm optimistic. Anyone know what the dudes in black are supposed to be? Are they evil henchman or good guys? They look evil. You know, cuz they're wearing black, and...they have goggles. Goggles are evil, right?

    That costume rocks! I always loved Captain America and what he stood for. I didn't dig the "troubled soul searching" Steve Rogers Marvel turned him into in the late 80's / 90's. As much as I don't care about the new Spiderman.. I care about Captain America.

    by Ebixby

    Its a bit too much... Like brown, red, gray, different blues, padding, bulky crap..... It's a bit much and I like when shit has depth and texture.... If they turn the gray straps to blue in post it will look alot more cohesive. I'm also not digging the brown earmuffs and chinstrap, they should also be blue.

    They've done a fine job of balancing WWII era tech with what I assume is ahead-of-its-time Stark Enterprises tech. A great look. Evans was a fine choice for Cap and I am very much looking forward to finally seeing one of my favorite comic book heroes on the silver screen!

    I wasn't thrilled when Heath Ledger was first cast as the Joker...like the rest of ya, and look how that turned out. I'm giving Evans the benefit of the doubt. So some of you just shut the fuck up till you see the movie.....geeezz! The costume looks like something in the real world.

    Not horrible, not great either.

    by Playkins

    Costume looks a tad overcomplicated. I can see what they did and why, just looks like it would take an hour to put on. I don't see what was so bad about the Ultimate 40's cap costume in the books. This beyond contemporary- it's downright futuristic.

  • Jan. 13, 2011, 10:40 p.m. CST

    This is actually the second attempt at Captain America

    by Jinxo

    They did previously attempt to bring Cap to the big screen. It ended up a schlocky straight-to-video mess but it was intended for the big screen. I still remember they actually had a teaser poster featuring his shield hanging up at my local theater. But while forgettable, it was the first attemp at a big screen Cap movie. (And I'm not talking about those bad TV movies.)

    by The Founder

    Captain America just never did anything for me as a character. I like Cap when he's leading the Avengers, it just feels right with him at the helm but stand alone, no. I've never been moved by the character at all, well I did like when Magneto had him pinned downed with his own shield and he told Mags to look at him and told him when this is over he's going to break every bone in his body. That was the highlight moment for me but it was in the Ultimate universe.

  • Jan. 14, 2011, 2:12 a.m. CST

    This will be the hit of the summer. Not the highest grossing, cause I don't believe Cap is gonna out do Transformers and Pirates but I think Marvel may get over 200 mil domestically. Not so sure about Thor though.

    Mask/Helmet

    by Hedgehog000

    I think it would be better with a more conventional helmet and a visor or goggles. That eyehole helmet just looks cumbersome. The rest of the outfit isn't bad but it looks overly complicated and fussy. Too many straps, pads, belts, and hoops. If the military actually had a cap back then, they probably would have just dyed up some conventional fatigues in the red, white, and blue.

    by ninpobugei

    I can see this working in the WWII era, though I'm hoping for a dramatic modernization in the Avengers movie (he'd look silly standing next to Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow or Hawkeye). I can also see Steve Rogers a little embarrassed to be wearing this and kind of getting fun poked at him by the other military guys...at least until they see what he can do, skill-wise. His attitude, nobility and charisma is what will then win everyone over...that, and probably his willingness to throw himself into the worst shitstorm of any battle he and the troops find themselves in.

    This costume is almost a pitch perfect copy of Bryan Hitch's design for a practical Cap costume. It does seem to incorporate the wings on the helmet though which Ultimate Cap does not. <p> I am not quite a fan of only 2 red stripes across the torso though. I get the make them a continuation of the straps thing, but I would like red stripes around the whole torso. <p> Also, I gotta wonder, if this is the WWII era design how are they gonna update it to look more modern while still looking very Cap-like for the 21st Century and The Avengers film?
