Two New Good Looks at Chris Evans as Captain America – UPDATED

Two new, better looks at Chris Evans as Captain America in his full costume, one posing, the other in action. Both pics give you a really good look at what his costume will look like in the movie.

Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Steve Rogers is inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, Rogers gets rejected, but later offered the opportunity to take part in a special experiment called Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers is administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by “vita-rays,” awakening from the treatment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America embarks on a war against evil.

Starring Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Stanley Tucci, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Richard Armitage, Sebastian Stan, Dominic Cooper, Natalie Dormer, Neal McDonough, Toby Jones, JJ Feild, and directed by Joe Johnston.

Cool Stories From Zergnet

    YES!! YES!!! YES!!!!
    I’m definitely sold on the look now. It works perfectly for the era, and looks like it could be easily updated for the Avengers film and a sequel. I like the way it came together.

    • LisLax25

      I feel like with how we saw in Ironman 1 and 2 that Tony Stark had Cap’s shield like he was working on it, I wouldn’t be surprised if Tony also makes a better suit for him when the Avenger movie comes out.

      • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool

        Yeah that’s probably the case as Howard Stark makes this one or at least one in the film. Probably makes the shield too. The one Tony has is a prototype.

  • Vineland

    Chris doesn’t look as cheesy as I thought he was gonna be, but I never understood why Captain America needs a big A on his forehead as well as stars and stripes. Good to see him holding the shield and I hope in the film we get to see Captain America throw it like in the comics. (Does he still do that?)

    • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool

      Of course it’s his signature ove. Steve Rogers isn’t even Cap in the comics right now (he basically took Nick fury’s job as the worlds top cop/soldier) and Bucky slings it with probably a bit more force because of his bionic arm. Steve has even been using an energy shield while with the Secret Avengers. We’re gonna see some shield slinging in the film no doubt.

      • Vineland

        Wow an energy shield? I wondered what the deal was with Bucky now that Steve’s back, it sounds cool. I haven’t read much Captain America since after the Infinity Crossover and he was turned into a werewolf! I should brush up a bit!

  • B-Flash

    It looks good but I can tell just from looking at it that it’s not easy to move in lol.

    • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool

      Yeah. But still looks soo cool. LOL. Can’t wait to see it in action, Also can’t wait to see the USO version (which I beleive is just the comics version in cloth) or what they come up with for the modern version. Probably just an updated version of this one

  • Juggernaut

    Looks great! I’m not crazy about the padded look. The gloves, belt and helmet are sweet though! There better be some shield throwing in here! I’m not sure how they will transition to the modern look. I’m looking forward to the movie even more now.

  • Shazam!

    While I’m super happy with the way Cap looks… why can I not take my eyes off of the uber cheesey looking hydra guys in the back ground!? Didn’t the Power Rangers beat those guys up 20 years ago!?

  • ThorsFury

    I’m trying to be optimistic with the Evans portrayal of C.A, but I can’t see how this look is going to work. IronMan and Thor look great ! C.A looks like a kid in puffy Pajamas. They needed to get a real Man for this role like John Cena. He would not need the padded long johns. C.A is starting to look like its stands for Candy Ass.

    • Lexavi80

      Looks good to me. This is the first REAL look at the Captain. I’m way exited with This one and Thor.

      Green lantern just screw the chances with what little has shown.

  • Shazam!

    Nobody bit the first time I dangled this so I’ll try again… WHAT’S UP WITH THE BADGUYS!?? They look TERRIBLE! They look like rejects from the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie! What’s with the cod-pieces!?

    What about any of them says WWII?!?! Why do I have a sneaking suspicion that Cap. won’t be seen fighting Nazi’s at all in this movie in order for Marvel to avoid potentially offending anyone?

    • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool

      he’ll fight some Nazi’s early in the film, before his focus switches to stopping Red Skull and Hydra.

      And those are Hydra soldiers. And since he has the upgaded suit this is probably during the third act.

      • Shazam!

        I realize what they are… and they’re still terrible looking video game rejects! Poor cap! Is it that hard to make Captain America a period WWII movie!? Apparently!

        • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool

          But then it wouldn’t be a superhero flick. They’re trying to strike a balance I think. This isnt the Avengers cartoon. We’ll get some NATZEES!

    • Juggernaut

      Yes I agree the HYDRA soldiers look kinda goofy. The hockey goalie/gas mask combo is not working but out of context anything could look dumb. In the movie this scene may look badd ass! Probably not, but it might. LOL. @Dedpool, I hope that this is not the third act Cap. I see what your saying with the circled star on the shoulder and the gloves,belt and helmet strap, like the ultimate version. However, I agree with @Thorsfury, his costume is nowhere near as impressive as Ironman or Thor. Standing beside Hulk, possibly Giant-Man, IM and Thor he will look both tiny and silly! Lol. I hope that they update his duds before the formation of the Avengers. All of my fears may be realized with casting Evans if they don’t make him look more “Iconic”. I don’t want a Matt Salinger corny rubber suit just something in the same realm of the new Spider-Man costume, in texture and color tone, or like the Superman Returns suit.

      • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool

        Third act doesnt mean thats his modern suit. Movie is all WWII with bookends probably.

      • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool

        Also the suit is described as a tricked out airman’s uniform, hence the extra straps and such.

    I don’t like the suit it looks bad, but as others have said, I hope it gets updated in the Avengers, coz this isn’t very good. Still gonna watch it though, and I really need to watch the trailer

  • Zanarkid_89

    looks really bulky with padding, was hoping for more sleek and tight look, otherwise it a smaller, more colorful space suit :)
