Some Nice, High Resish Pics Of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER!!

Published at: Feb. 3, 2011, 1:45 p.m. CST by merrick

 

Merrick here...

Earlier this week, we learned that Joe Johnston's CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER would grace the cover of the newest issue of Empire.  

ComingSoon has now posted what appear to be scans of some of the pics featured in Empire's piece about the film.  Several of the images they posted, including the photo below, are mighty EMBIGGENABLE. 

Click the Captain below to jump to ComingSoon, where you can access a much larger version of the shot appearing herein - and others.  This is the first time I've created a clickable image link on AICN since we implemented our new admin/input structure.  Hopefully this'll work...and it should work...but lemme know if it doesn't.

    PARACHUTE STRAPS!!!!!! :O

    What the HECK are they for? They make an otherwise decent-looking suit look incredibly stupid.

    by CornNut007

    One of the images has some text on it that reads "Below right: Hugo Weaving as villain Red Skull with the 'cosmic cube' Where is that image dammit!

    Looks cool, but

    by rahtard

    Did they get Nolan's approval on having an American play this part? I mean, that kid from Harry Potter is free, I'm sure they could have hired him to do it and bring some classical British acting prowess.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 1:54 p.m. CST

    Love it

    by eric haislar

    Looks like a great practical update to the costume. You look at it and know thats it's cap with out a doubt.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 1:56 p.m. CST

    Screams 1940s!

    by barsoom79

    . . . NOT. Also, if Cap ain't fighting the Nazis (hell, he punched ADOLF HITLER in face on the cover of Captain America Comics #1), I don't wanna know. HYDRA in the 40s? WTF, Marvel?

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 1:57 p.m. CST

    Rob Liefeld

    by Swoomustdie

    First I want to say I really do like this costume. I think it's about as good as you can get finding a middle ground between the comic's spandex tights and a 'real-world' compromise. That said, every time I look at this costume I cannot help but think of Rob Liefeld and his million pouches, straps, and buckles he had to put on every single character he 'designed'. At least he doesn't have man-boobs like when R.L. drew him.

  • I know they have to watch the bottom line, but come on...

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 2:02 p.m. CST

    Well...he has his helmet on. <snickers>

    by HollywoodHellraiser

    LOL I'm sorry but if people is still buying that Evan is Captain America than I guess believeing in Santa Claus is ok too!

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 2:03 p.m. CST

    One thing I wanna know as a comic nerrrrrrd:

    by Fuzzyjefe

    Will he be slinging his shield? Huh? HUH?? Please tell me he'll be throwing that thing around like a big round glaive of American-flavored ass-whoop. But it's looking good so far, and I am looking forward to Cap a bit more than Thor at this point. That could change. At least we KNOW that Thor's gonna toss his hammer.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 2:08 p.m. CST

    fuzzyjefe

    by eric haislar

    he has to throw his shield. There is no way marvel would make a movie without him doing that. Would they?

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 2:09 p.m. CST

    I like it.

    by Yaroh_Meringue

    I like that they didn't fully wimp out on the little head wings. It's a good mix of the original Kirby design with live-action practicality.

    As for the Red Skull

    by rev_skarekroe

    I hope he becomes the actual Red Skull early in the movie and doesn't transform in the last reel, like Destro in G.I. Joe.

    as someone who hates Cap

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    I find that the straps enhance look of the suit. it makes it look plausible in a real life situation I guess... or maybe he just has a jet pack we dont know about yet?

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 2:24 p.m. CST

    oh yeah, he surely will

    by imagegod

    he will toss the shield. i believe there was a comic con 'teaser-test' where Cap was in shadow and tossed the shield at the camera... of course some stunt guy in costume, but nonetheless the throw was present. we will be seeing Cap in all his kickassedness.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 2:25 p.m. CST

    Well erichaislar....we'll see.

    by Fuzzyjefe

    I'm not TOO worried about it....it's one of his skills that just SCREAMS for a cinematic realization, after all. But so far, not a single image has even HINTED at it. Hopefully, they're just saving that little nugget as a nice fat stinger to cap off a bad-ass trailer. Can you see a nice long trailer end up with a kick ass shot of Cap slinging his shield, knocking a few Hydra goons out of their boots, and then catching it again and standing there looking like a red, white, and blue tall drink of whoop-ass? I can. Marvel....just let me know when I can get my check....you're welcome.

    RE: "Why does he have parachute straps?"

    by The Garbage Man

    Golly, I don't know... it's almost enough to make you think this movie were set during WWII, during which soldiers routinely parachuted into combat zones. That can't be right, though - it's not like Captain America was a soldier who fought in WWII and was depicted many times parachuting into battle, and that having parachute straps built into his suit would facilitate said plane jumping. That's just madness.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 2:28 p.m. CST

    This upgrade has made it even EASIER

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 2:45 p.m. CST

    RE: "Why does he have parachute straps?"

    by Blair Keith

    You're partially correct, Garbage Man, about the era being WWII. They are not parachute starps. You see, fully loaded ammo belts can be quite heavy carrying around day in and day out. To ease the weight off from the hips, suspenders were used to bear the weight on the shoulderes as well. Just ask a vet who had used them.

    re: the 'gayness' of this image

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 2:49 p.m. CST

    I hope he uses guns.

    It would be pretty lame to have that pistol there and him not to use it at all.

    Yeah the chinstrap makes sense- I just dont like it. I'd rather have a mask. But if we're going to have a helmet, I'd like neck protection. But if we're not going to have that, I'd like for the chinstrap to be faithful blue at least. It'd look better in my opinion.

    Not sure why this outfit is considered any more "believeable"

    by Snookeroo

    than the one in the comics. If your movie hero is going to run around in a flag costume, why not be true to the source material in the first place? Because this trainwreck looks just as silly - if not MORE contrived - as the original with red buchaneer boots and winged mask. What looks cool in the comics looks ridiculous in real life - ever seen people in cosplay? Painful, ain't it? But it's part of being a superhero -- if you're going to see a superhero movie, it just comes with the territory. Trying to work around that fact kind of misses the whole point in the first place. Silly, colorful costumes are part of what makes superhero comics fun - it's part of what makes the character stand out from an ordinary background. Trying to make the costume more "real" or "grounded" only takes away from the fantastic aspect of the hero. But, I'm a purist - I like to see these characters in live action as they were conceived by their creators. Not watered down in an attempt to draw audiences that the character was never created for in the first place.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 3:57 p.m. CST

    Did Leifeld design this??! Even the straps have straps on them!

    by FloatingHolmes

    The blue part, covered with straps, is connected to the white part by more... straps. What makes the red stripe? Red straps. What keeps his mask on? A chin strap. Straptain America! Lame.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 3:59 p.m. CST

    Is It Just Me or....

    by ThisBethesdaSea

    does being bent over and pounded by this man seem like a fun endeavor?

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 3:59 p.m. CST

    Bullet Damage

    by NativeGaijin

    For everyone wondering why Cap's shield has bullet damage, here are a couple of possibilities. Although the shield may be made of adamantium, the paint probably isn't. So it would inevitably show some wear and tear, especially from large caliber weapons. Or, maybe it's not damage. Or maybe it's just lead residue from bullet hits?

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 4:05 p.m. CST

    does Captain America have feet?

    by elsewhere

    if not, Rob Liefeld was surely involved.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 4:20 p.m. CST

    by Cobra--Kai

    I think all the straps are cool for the first movie, but once Cap meets up with the other superheroes in The Avengers, and he sees how they manage to wear similar costumes - only without straps - then Cap will start feeling a bit self-conscious.<p> Maybe it will begin with gentle ribbing, with Iron Man teasing him about the straps and then day by day Cap will concede that he's operating with 1940's haute couture and he'll look at hiring a new seamstress who can make him a costume with a few less straps.<p> I can see a nice sub plot developing through The Avengers movie of Cap slowly coming to terms with a suit that doesn't have a strap for every week of the year. I think that could be quite moving and something audiences could relate to.

    by antonphd

    Martin Campell showed a lot of promise when he made Goldeneye and finally lived up to that promise years later when he made Casino Royale. I'm hoping for the same from Joe Johnston. He showed a lot of promise when he made The Rocketeer and I hope he finally lives up to that promise with Captain America.

    Slinging the shield

    by aegri_mentis

    will be the last thing he does in the movie. Red Skull will have him pinned down/cornered in the gimungus airplane thing, and Cap will throw his shield at the controls, sending it into a nosedive, sacrificing himself while taking the plane down with whatever evil contraption for world domination is on it. Don't ask me how he gets it back to found and thawed out.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 4:57 p.m. CST

    why is his shield dented?

    by Cap'n Jack

    by shitstorm23

    Captain America always seemed like an authority figure, someone much older than they look. I don't get the same thing from Chris Evans, he's just not that guy. It doesn't matter how much muscle he packs on or how you make the suit look. Can you really see him giving orders to Iron Man or Hulk? The leader of the Avengers? I just don't see it. <P> Needs more gravitas.

    I'm just not that impressed by the whole look and vibe of the film... Frankly, it's giving off a rather cheap, flat, workmanlike feel, redolent of something like that Billy Zane car crash The Phantom, and it's in the hands of a journeyman director. I know I'm pre-judging it horribly, but while acknowledging his hand in the scripting of this production I'm more confident that Whedon, with The Avengers, will deliver a Captain America movie which will appear more dynamic and interesting and which is rendered with greater artistic pizzazz.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 5:31 p.m. CST

    Looks good, no flames up sides...

    by poopoohumor

    Having a hard time understanding why people are fixating on straps. Could be way worse than a few extra straps. Megaton has a metal vagina for a face. And yes, Evans can be a force of authority in a movie. Watch Sunshine. Such negativity here on the Internet. It's like people come here just to complain or something.

  • Feb. 3, 2011, 5:33 p.m. CST

    Harry is correct about the "parachute straps"...

    by BILLY_BOOMSTICK

    ... SPOILER.... it comes into play during the climatic fight aboard Red Skull's Cosmic Cube-Powered, Flying Fortress/Giant Plane (I've seen the storyboards and it looks epic to say the least)... and as another posted noted... this event/fight will be what leads Rogers' to his icy suspension in the Arctic!

    by monolithik

    If any one of you can draw an adaptation of Cap that would look any better in real life, I'll give you a hundred dollars. The helmet is great, and keeps with the Ultimates look quite well. A mask would look absolutely retarded -- even Batman basically has a helmet in TDK... and we all know how much better that works than the stupid latex cowl that Mike Keaton couldn't even turn his head in. I really like the detail in the suit, too. The depth and detail in the star/abs give it a look of stylized armor without the look of fake abs and bat nipples. Also, the straps give the stripes function, which would look goofier than all hell otherwise. I can tell a lot of thought went into this suit, and I truly believe it's the best representation of Cap that we can get, and should be thankful it's as true as it is. He's got the shield, the star, the stripes and even the wings. This is a living, breathing Cap... and I'm psyched. If you really think fish scales and buccaneer boots would look better... well, there's no reasoning with madness. Heh.

    Who is "they"? Fox holds the film rights and all creative control over the Fantastic Four movies. Marvel does not. Marvel is making Captain America, Fox is not. Fox raped Galactus, not Marvel. Marvel also does/did not control the first Hulk movie (Universal), all the Xmen/Daredevil/Electra films (all Fox), Spiderman films (Sony), and until very recently (post- War Zone), the Punisher films (Lionsgate). You should bitch at the production companies for those fuck-ups, not Marvel. Now if you hated the incredible hulk(reboot) or iron man 1&2, then bitch away. Those were Marvel movies.

    So we can see the badass look of determination in his eyes as he's ready to kill a platoon of Nazis. Why they've not taken the smart route of releasing official photos is beyond me. Don't release some cheesy picture of him looking aloof. Release a shot of him looking BADASS ready to fuck some Nazis up. What I really wanted was something akin to a comic book cover, Cap central to the frame, head tilted down, piercing eyes looking upward in your direction.

    3rd most truly comicbooky costume yet.

    by hank henshaw

    First place goes to the 70's Superman. Which I think could be improved with other type of fabrics and a more defined "S-shield" for the new movie, without falling in the Superman Returns failed costume attempt. 2nd place Raimi's Spiderman. 3rd Place Cap. (Iron Man would be first, as far as faithfulness to the look of the comic, but it's not truly a costume, is it?) And colorful superhero costumes (like Cap's or Superman's), in a way, make sense. They want the bad guys to focus on them, and not on regular citizens.

    Um, how can a costume that doesn't look anything like the comic book costume be comic-booky? Never mind. Obviously, you have a theory. I'm not going to convince you otherwise.

  • Looks good, I'm glad the people who designed it watched the little behind the scenes segment on how the TDK suit was conceptualized. "Now for high altitude jumps, you're gonna need oxygen and stabilizers.. although I must say, compared to your usual requests, jumping out of an airplane is pretty straightforward." "And what about getting back into the plane?" "I'd recommend a good travel agent." "Without it landing." *smile* "Now that's more like it, Mr. Wayne... the CIA had a pro-grum back in the 60's of getting their people out of hotspots called 'Skyhook'.. we could look into that." "Yeah." "Ok. Now." *motions with fingers* "Hardened kevlar plates, over titantium dipped tri-weave fibers.. for flexibility. You'll be lighter, faster, more agile." *whisk KA-THUMP!* "Perhaps you should read the instructions first?" *husky whisper* "Yeah." "Now there IS a trade-off.. separation of the plates makes you more vulnerable to knives, and gunfire." "Ah, we wouldn't want to make things too easy, now would we?" *slurred voice* "How will it hold up against dogs?"

"Um, it's in the brilliant script by Christopher Nolan's --- you've heard of him, right? --- well, his brother wrote the script, and, anyway, they've told me the four hours it takes to put on this ridiculous suit is exactly the amount of time that the contemporary audience will accept as realistic."

    we can clearly see that the bat-suit rests as one piece when bruce isn't wearing it. in-movie, obviously bruce can put the suit on much faster than behind the scenes. if we're going to dismiss aspects of a film because we are aware of their lack of real world practicality, then we're going to dismiss just about every superhero suit worn since superman:the movie along with many other products of movie magic where we're intended to suspend our disbelief. superman:the movie..no way he would be able to cram that cape under a suit and not have it be noticeable. also, a turquoise suit was worn for the flying scenes. spider-man..we see shots of tobey being able to take off the mask with ease..same with the boots and gloves. yet, in most shots we can clearly see the suit is one seamless piece..not to mention that the mask had a faceplate in it to retain that comic book profile. interestingly, some of the most practical suits were the x-men suits..but those were rejected too.

    The Straps

    by monolithik

    I like the idea of the straps being built-in for storing the shield on his back, which we see all the time in the comics. It gives the hokey gut stripes purpose, and I'm all for that. Complaining about the pouches is like complaining about Batman's belt; Cap has limited abilities - not quite as all-natural as Batman, but not too far off from that - so pouches and gadgets are a necessity. I hear a lot of complaints but no advice for improvement... shocking, I know. If anyone can do better, though, I'm honestly interested in seeing it, though I really don't think it can be done. This is a badass costume -- surprisingly true to the source but still somewhat believable, and will look far less pitiful beside Iron Man, Thor, Fury and the rest than spandex over chainmail, wings sprouting from a mask and pirate boots/jazz hand gloves.

Take a look at THE ULTIMATES. Look at what Cap is wearing, during WW2, in that series. Does that dovetail with all the other portrayals of Cap, over the decades the character has been drawn? No. It is an attempt to imagine what a "practical" battlefield Captain America costume MIGHT look like - without just scrapping the whole thing since, as noted, the basic costume is NOT practical or "realistic". Same thing here. If nothing but the classic, standard, totally unaltered Kirby-esque CA costume will do for you, fine. We got it. Point noted about a zillion times.

    I'd like to see Cap's Original Sheild...

    by Zappatilla

    that was the bulletproof triangular badge shape. The one he had before they gave him the circular one. Comic book storyline says that the Black Panther's father gave the first one to him - which was later displayed in Wakanda as a national treasure. Then a second triangular one was issued to him later (which Rogers still has in his personal effects after WWII). Then the first iconic circular one was presented to him by President Roosevelt. That would be cool to Cap's back story. These early shields weren't made out of adamantium steel-vibranium alloy. It wasn't till he was with the Avengers that he gets the indestructible shield. Also Caps original costume had no neck coverage. I believe there was a comic where it came off...leading to the more cowl like look. I think the little stuff like that would really enhance the movie...oh well...here's hoping.

    The badge-shaped shield WILL apparently be appearing earlier in the film. Do a quick google search and you'll see it. Pretty spiffy the lengths they've gone to make this movie true to the character geeks know while making it look REAL.

    OK, I was a little weary when I heard Evans was cast but I'm convinced. He owns the role. This looks friggin great. And that shot has the WOW! Factor. Someone should make a poster of it.

    Why do people who know nothing...

    by benmears

    about these characters insist on commenting on & complaining about them?!! I mean WTF? If I'm not a fan of something or aware of the details about a property, I'M not going to assume the right to make critiques about an adaption of it in any medium. Why make an ass of myself? One innocuous example being the comment from an individual who'd read somewhere that in the comics, Cap & the Human Torch had "crossed paths". Uh, they MORE than "crossed paths", they routinely teamed up in countless adventures while fighting the Nazis during WWII. BUT, that wasn't the Fantastic Four's Johnny Storm ( who wasn't even born yet ). It was the android Human Torch whose structure would eventually go on to become another member of THE AVENGERS in the Vision.

    It's just bad, people

    by Movietool

    There were a ton of directions they could have gone here. And let's face it, they took the path of least resistance and tried to do a "Batman Begins" makeover on the Captain America uniform. Stop kidding yourselves. It looks silly. It's all over the place. The helmet make Evans look like a kid. It doesn't work. BUT - I do hold out hope that the "modern" era suit (if the rumors are true) will look a little better in subsequent movies. If the story conceit is that Steve Rodgers sort of cobbles this uniform together as he's tearing ass around trying to stop The Red Skull, I'll accept how slipshod it looks a little better. We'll see. My confidence in this flick is swiftly draining - but not so much that I won't give it a chance.

  • And they are kinda suceeding. It doesn't look all that good, but it's still far better then i was expecting.

    Capt Gaymerikkka is wholesome homoerotic. It's what made him appealing to his fans. And Bucky. With a sidekick called Bucky, it's all beyond evident. He migth as well been called Loreene.

    If you are not seeing the gay vibe in the pic above, it means you are in denial. In-the-closet denial. Heteros can seen the gay in things, it doesn't affect their sexuality. Only in-the-closet denials are blind to the gay vibes. Granted, the pic above has far less gay vibes then it was to be expected, but it's still there. It's Captain Gaymerikkka, after all. It comes with the territory (pun intended).

    quit talking shit, now your going of on one. Lets compare and contrast. Is Capatain America like Gregory Peck from The Guns of Navarone? Yes. Is Gregory Peck from The Guns of Navarone like Cyclops from Xmen? Yes. Is Cyclops from X men like Captain America? Yes. Do any one of these people or their undderlying words with others obviously signify their gay if you read between the lines other than Gregory Peck from Guns of Navarone? No. Jesus man surely when you had your exams at school they had that question like:<p> "All Larks are Arcs. Some Arcs are Narcs. Are all Larks Narcs?"<p> C'mon man.

    by AsimovLives

    It's the comic where Superman's baby craft lands on the USSR in the cold war and Superman grows to become Super Commie. It shows what Superman would be like if his eagerness to absorve the values of his adopted land were not american but soviet. He's the same character, only commie. Fantastic comic. And the ending is quite clever and unexpected.

    by Smack_Teddy

    A guy gave me Red Son about 6 yrs ago because he didnt think much of it (amongst other things he did like!) and i was kind of suprised, i found it very interesting, its really impressed me actually in that it could have taken a very pedestrian-obvious check-list of gimmicks to the concept, but Millar went furthur in exploring certain issues & Supermans identity.<p> It didnt stick with me so much in my mind like other graphic novels i read around that time, but that was when i was finishing off stuff like Sandman, getting into Transmetropolitan for the first time, loads of great other classics and new single issues coming out.

    Dumbshit's who don't know shit about Cap

    by malificus

    First, all you jackasses who aren't even fans of Cap should leave the room. Okay, now that those dickheads are gone, if you look at the first few ishes of CA his mask was indeed as it is portrayed in this movie sans the chin straps. The straps makes sense given that the half-face mask would never stay on in real life, covered previously by John Byrne. Also, the suit has to respect the materials, function and sensibility of the time period. Naturally when making a suit for Cap they would start with a basic paratrooper-type uniform and go from there. The suit has to sit within the time period so that when he gets freezed and emerges in present day for the Avengers his outfit can then be updated into the modern era, probably reflecting more toward the Ultimates look. And finally, the shield starts out with the classic trident look, then goes to the round one but not necessarily the adamantium one, they may wait on that concept to get Tony Stark involved. Also, just because it has bullet skid marks on it doesn't mean it's 'damaged', black shoes leave marks on a basketball court but the wood beneath isn't harmed.

  • 'Junior' said that he thought the script for Iron Man was lame, and he improvised most of the best stuff. Thor and Cap seem to be born of even lesser material. Does not bode well for an Avengers film. Meanwhile, without Jon Favreau to pitch ideas off of, I doubt Junior will even sign on for the movie. If he does, he'll be phoning it in for the paycheck.

    Helmet looks terrible.

    by SunTzu77

    The Art Dept. REALLLLLY dropped the ball on that helm. Honestly, I probably would have kept the suit as they designed it... but the helm.. I would have gone in a completely different direction... a full facial mask/helm with wings... like Hawkman... but the wings shrunk wayyyy down (redesigned nose piece)... CA's colors... and the mask could possibly cover the mouth. I like the diabolical brows from Hawkman's helmet. <br> http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/8/81197/1573224-hawkman_joeprado.jpg <br> I like the central part of this helmet... the eyes... how it wraps down on both sides of his cheeks... etc.
