Much like Green Lantern, apparently the first peeks of Captain America will come in the form of concept art. Courtesy of AICN, we have here a first look at what the design of the costume in The First Avenger: Captain America will look like.
Before we go there though, can I bitch about that title for a bit? No? You don’t want to hear it? Well, go fuck a goat. Because here’s the thing. He’s not the first Avenger. Not in the comics, and not even in the movies. The movies have done their fair share of retconning, which is likely to continue, but at the end of Iron Man and Iron Man 2, it’s pretty firmly established that The Avengers are already in motion — otherwise known as The Avenger Initiative. And since Thor is the next film to come out, one can only assume that the team is already partially built by the time Joe Johnston’s Captain America film comes out in 2011. Not to mention that in the comics, unless I’m mistaken, the first Avengers team didn’t even have Captain America on the damn team — it was Thor, Ant-Man, Wasp, The Hulk, and Iron Man. I suppose if you want to get all chronological and shit, Captain America was around in the 40’s, but even that bullshit doesn’t fly, because Thor is a fucking immortal and has been around for… well… a long fucking time.
Anyway. Here’s the concept art. For those who have been living under a goddamn rock, Chris Evans will be playing the titular Cap, and the film co-stars Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury, Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Dent, and also Tommy Lee Jones and Toby Jones.
Anyway. Enough with the foreplay:
Also, according to Slashfilm, there will be two costumes — one gaudier looking one for when Cap is part of the USO tours, and one for combat. I’m guessing this is the combat suit.
So? Whaddaya think?
