Comic-Con 2011: Captain America In His Avengers Suit

Comic-Con 2011: Captain America In His Avengers Suit

Marvel has released a new character poster exclusive to Comic-Con, displaying Chris Evans as Captain America in the updated costume he'll be sporting for 2012's The Avengers.

Taken from the World War II era into the present, Cap is seen confidently ready for battle as a leader, pointing towards whatever it is the newly-assembled Super Team is out to stop. The more militaristic, paratrooper look he sports in this week's release of Captain America: The First Avenger is tweaked in favor of a more traditional comic book design, complete with patriotic red stripes on the abdomen. The old costume is displayed in the background to contrast the differences.

Check out the full image below and bask in its star-spangled glory.

Although star, Chris Evans was said to have grown accustomed to the old costume, the new one will better fit the needs of the Stars and Striped Avenger. According to Co-Visual Development Supervisors for Marvel Studios, Ryan Meinerding:

“There’s a lot that goes in to it, because honestly the first version of the costume didn’t fit and didn’t make him look big or look like a super hero. And you start questioning, ‘Maybe it’s the design.’ You don’t know what it is and you just keep hammering away at it until you figure out what’s not working and what is working and tailor it to [the actor]."

    I agree with G4Wolfspirt. What's with his belt? I just hope the actual version looks better. I know that in the film that Tony Stark will probably give him a new and better version but it just has to be awesome though.

    You know, there are just some suits from the comics that can't make the transfer to movies without just being comical. I'm quite happy that his ears aren't sticking out of his helmet/mask/whatever his head piece ends up being. And considering he is supposed to be a soldier, I'm happy they didn't go with the spandex type suit. I've got to say, I'm pretty happy with this iteration of his costume.
