Trying To Tame The American Horse

I've been trying my hardest to get excited for Joe Johnston's upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger. I love that it's happening, particularly in the greater context of the looming monstrosity that will be The Avengers. I actually very much like Chris Evans. Love Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull. And I really dug the promo art that came out last year:

But... the images that have come out since then, showing Chris Evans as Steve Rogers in the Cap getup... I dunno, man. They look... even in the context of comic book movies... pretty fuckin' goofy. The uniform just isn't quite gelling.

Here are the two latest images:

I do like the figures in the background in that one. Here's the second, featuring Cap... running! With missiles!

Then there's this slightly older one, of Cap on a motorcycle:

Now, I know -- nothing is really worth judging until you see it in action, moving on screen. But unlike Thor and Iron Man, with this... I'm just not feeling it, you know?

Could be worse, I suppose:
