Check out the spoilery set images on this page to see for yourself. I can't imagine the mocaps being anything else.

So here's Captain America in Cleveland:

Well, a costume is just a costume - but this one is pretty tacky compared to the one Evans wore in Cap's WW II incarnation.

Yeah, that suit is rather underwhelming. I'm still really, really, looking forward to this though. I'm not about to swear off a movie just because I didn't like one picture.

No, that would be stupid. Still, I'd trade the bloody Avengers for a couple more Captain America films set during the war.

Yeah, Cap's WW2 suit rocked! This does nothing to dampen my enthusiasm for Avengers, but I hope they do a re-design before Captain America 2.

I think Cap's "Avengers" costume is awesome myself. It is very much a mesh of both his 616 and Ultimate costumes much like his World War I costume was as well.

I love Cap's new costume. I think it's very sleek and cool.

Re: AVENGERS - movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2

I liked the WW II outfit because in some ways it looked like something someone might wear for practical reasons - it's protective, among other things. And it works well for the period. It leans just a bit in the "Iron Man" direction there.

The Avengers outfit is just day-glo superhero long-johns, same as Green Lantern or Superman's outfit. Ho-hum.

A couple of really cool characters and potential film series - Iron Man and Captain America - are being sacrificed on the altar of Marvel's super-colossal moneymaking Mega Franchise. I understand the business reasoning, but it's still a pity that the studio can't be more creative and less clumsy about it all.

^ I don't know if we're sacrificing either CA or IM with The Avengers. Both characters are still supposed to have their own trilogies of movies, which is generally as much as any superhero movie series gets. We're just getting extra helpings of them but as a team, not as solo outings.

Agreed on the suit though - I prefer the retro one, though the modern-day one is fine. At the end of the day, most of them are just superhero longjohns - at least they didn't put him in black leather!

Well yeah, they'll probably get their movies - but how good will they be? There was a lot of complaining about how much of a come-down Iron Man II was from the first one, and largely because of all the extra franchise crap being jammed into it to set up the "Marvel movie universe."

Ultimately, though, whether you see this kind of thing as damage is clearly a matter of what you like as an individual, and I've already stated my preference for more period-set Captain America movies - the first one isn't brilliant just because it features Chris Evans playing Captain America; it's a completely successful package as conceived and written and cast and executed, and they're throwing away everything but Evans - all the supporting characters (I know, not necessarily all the actors) and the milieu that Johnston and the others so wonderfully evoked and developed.

Re: AVENGERS - movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2

Yeah, I take your point. I was one of those complaining that IM2 spent too much time on setting up The Avengers (but then again, a generally poor script didn't help either), while I also will miss the WWII setting when they make CA2 (though rumour has it there will be flashbacks to that setting).

But then again, anything which gives Joss Whedon a chance to make a big budget movie with the likes of Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans can't be all bad!

Whedon and the cast are definitely what that movie has going for it.

Iron Man II didn't annoy me as much as the way they framed Captain America - the next IM flick can go back to what worked well in the first, after all, and add on whatever worked from the second. They left no doubt, though, that Steve Rogers has no future adventures in the world he grew up in and devoted himself so wholly to. And dear, dear Peggy lost forever (sob)...

Bruce Wayne- Does it come in black?

I think Cap's modern suit would make a nice Batsuit.
