First Look at the Captain America Costume

Rumors about the look of the Captain America costume have been floating around for a few days now. Originally the website JoBlo described a firsthand account of what the costume would officially look like, which led to several fan drawings. Today, Aint It Cool News has released a new set of drawings from another source, and they have been confirmed as what the costume will look like in the movie.

Captain America: The First Avenger, starring Chris Evans (Fantastic Four, Sunshine), with Joe Johnston (The Wolfman) directing, is set for a July 22 2011 release

The move is an origin story for Steve Rogers, who becomes Captain America during World War II. Early rumors say that the first half of the movie features Rogers turning into Captain America and finding himself as little more than a USO attraction, while the second half of the film features Captain America in action with the WWII era super heroes, The Invaders, as they take on the Red Skull, played by Hugo Weaving.

According to JoBlo, the movie will feature two costumes, the first will be a flashier look that Steve Rogers wears for USO shows, while the second costume, pictured above, is the battle ready suit that Rogers designs himself and wears into combat.

The suit is described as leather in texture, and although it will have an appealingly modern look, it will look as if it was created with materials available in the 1940s. The helmet will be a modified World War II US issued helmet, and the outfit is said to have a “practical WWII military look” to it. The shield will be the more modern circular shield, and seems to be remaining close to the comic design.

For comic fans, it appears that the original Captain America costume used during the run of “The Ultimates” is the inspiration, but whether or not that means that the costume will be changed when Cap joins the Avengers in the modern day is anyone’s guess.

So basically, it looks awesome. What do you think?  Sound off in the comments below.
