The unveiling of the Captain America costume!

Here is our first official image of the Captain America costume design that Chris Evans will wear in the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger:
There are a few changes to the classic design, such as the absence of wings on the side of the headpiece (this may come from the influence of the Ultimate Universe Captain America), but I have to say I think it looks great. It feels like a 1940s military fighting outfit, seems practical and tough, and is still genuinely recognizable as the iconic Captain America. I do miss the wings, however. That’s why us Cap-fans call him “Winghead.”

Now I’m waiting for the first Red Skull costume reveal.
