Captain America: The Winter Soldier will have our serum-soaked super soldier going into battle with entirely new digs and apparently a scooper for ComicBookMovie may have revealed Cap's redesigned look by way of some new uncovered concept art.
When the first official photo for the unfrozen fighter's sequel hit earlier this week, there were noticeable differences draping Chris Evans' costumed crusader, despite the fact he was covered in shadows. Most noble among them, were the gloves, which were quite visibly shorter than the ones he sported in his previous appearances, also featuring exposed fingertips. That visual clue fueled speculation that Cap would be coming into this film with a costume possibly inspired by his appearance in the pages of Marvel Comics' "Heroic Age" storyline in 2010. While technically, it was a costume that a newly-resurrected Steve Rogers sported while his former sidekick and Winter Soldier, Bucky Barnes briefly cavorted as Captain America, it was still a popular entry in the annals of Captain America couture.
While the verdict verifying the authenticity of this costume is still not quite delivered (it could just end up being unused concept art,) we do know that changes of some kind are in store for Cap's costume. While his bright blue and red jumpsuit in The Avengers last year sported a more comic-book-friendly look, it did manage to divide audiences. This hybrid version seems to tap into the lighter, more utilitarian aspects of what he wore in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger.
