When it comes to news about Captain America: The First Avenger, we’ve been pretty conservative. It’s hard to not run just about every scoop that passes by our desks, given how excited we are for this film, but considering how early we are in the production, it’s hard to tell what’s real and what is just hopeful speculation.
A few days ago, word first hit the web about the illustrious costume that Chris Evans will be donning as the titular character. It started off as a first-hand account of sketches that they got over at Joblo. Those descriptions turned into a few fan sketches, which then turned into professional renders of the costume from our pals over at AICN. Talk about a collaborative effort.
As you can see after the jump, the costume resembles more of the Ultimates Cap rather than the “wing-eared pirate boots” look that fans knew and loved for nearly a century. The suit looks to be more modern than anything else, which means we could still see the old wing ears in the first half of the film. Given the costumes that Marvel has churned out in other films, we’re quite pleased it’s not black leather.
Joe Johnston’s Captain America: The First Avenger, slated for release on July 11, 2011, is currently shooting in London with Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan, and Hugo Weaving as Red Skull.

Looks almost exactly like a Cap homage character I once made in the game City of Heroes. 😛
