Back before it was ever announced that Chris Evans would be playing Captain America, there were a lot of concerns from fans over whether or not the character would work on the big screen. A big part of that concern stemmed from the character’s vast array of costumes over the years, many of which were pretty bright, cartoony and over the top. That’s just fine for the funny book pages, but they might seem a little too goofy in a live action setting. Well, this week we finally have our first glimpse at the proposed costume for Cap in the upcoming Marvel film, and it seems to be a good combination of traditional looks and real world utility.
The pictures come courtesy of Ain’t It Cool News, although the costume was first described over on JoBlo. They are concept art mock-ups, not actual stills or photos, but they seem to have originated from an official source of some sort. Joe Johnston also told the L.A. Times that there will be another suit that the Army makes him wear earlier on that is a lot more corny, but this is a second suit that he designs himself. What do you think, is this a good look for The First Avenger? Check out a couple of the pics after the jump, and see more over at AICN.
