First Look: Chris Evans In Captain America Costume

Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we get our first look at actor Chris Evans in costume as the new Captain America.

[T]his week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly includes an exclusive first look at Chris Evans in his full Captain America suit in this summer’s Captain America: The First Avenger. [H]ere’s the real, clean, clear, and expanded photo. If it looks strikingly different than the classic Captain America get-up — bold colors, flimsy material, a mask with weird little wings — that’s definitely by design. “You can’t really take him seriously in his flag pajamas,” director Joe Johnston told EW in last year’s exclusive first look cover story on the film. So instead, the hero’s main uniform was designed to resemble a tricked-out airman’s jumpsuit, the “A” on the helmet and star on the chest modest in size, the colors muted. It took Evans about 25 minutes to suit up. “He likes to do it all by himself,” explained costume designer Anna Sheppard. “I think it helps him feel like a super hero.” The film hits theaters July 22.

Eh, I’m not so sure about how bulky this costume looks. All that padding kinda looks silly. I mean I get that they’re trying to go for a more realistic superhero here, but i think they lost sight somewhere that superhero/comic book fans arnt too interested in ‘realism’. What do you think? Like the suit?
