Cap's new costume is fine.

Bruce Wayne- Does it come in black?

I think Cap's modern suit would make a nice Batsuit.
It looks like the cowl is the worst of it.

Mmm...I think I've gotten used to Cap's retro costume. What does it say about the character and his perception of the 21st C that he's "returned" to his USO look? Rather than fussing over which costume is best, I'm just hoping some thought has been put into why Steve would opt for one costume over another. The USO costume makes sense if he sees himself as a symbol, and not just a guy with a practical mission to help win a war. There's no war, so...

I'm sorry but I just don't get the chevrons on his shoulders.

He's Captain America, not Private America.

Well, he's not General America, either, but he has stars on his shoulders in the comics.

Original Steve Rogers' Cap costume only has stars on the chest and back.

and those silver stripes are in the wrong place for rank chevrons and so are Ultimate Cap's stars for general ranks.

My point was the "Private America" comment was just as ridiculous as my "General America" comment.

That comment was just a bit longue-in-cheek, in case you didn't realize it. Mind you, I still think they look very out of place.

I'm also leary about the shape of the bottom the mask and the eyeholes. They're just a bit different from CA:TFA and I don't think they look quite right.

Of course that could be the lighting. When we see it on screen it could look fine. We'll have to wait and see.

Well, what about Corporal Captain America? That has a nice ring to it!

I had the same thought. Can't be a coincidence, and for that I salute you, CorporalCaptain.

The helmet looks slightly less crappy in closer shots, which is good.

It's also good that movies like this don't rely on blue screen any more!
