I think the suit looks better when it's darker. Maybe they should tone it down in post.

Less saturated colors are better, yeah. Who knows what color correction will accomplish - the close-up shot uptopic of the costume in a glass case shows the blue on the outfit as a little less bright and with more color variations in it. For anyone who wants to fuss about "the red, white and blue" - well, most American flags use a darker, more royal blue than the baby-blue that this thing looks to be (in bright sunlight, at least).

Ok, I must admit the suit is starting to grow on me. I love those last couple pics, textbook Captain America.

He probably won't look so silly when he's sharing scenes with the guy in shiny armor and the green CGI giant....

Yeah, he probably is the least silly of the Avengers isn't he? Not that I'm ripping on them or anything, I love all of these characters.

It looks like they're going for more naturalistic looks for Hawkeye and Black Widow, but overall, it's all about context. He's co-starring with a diverse mob of colorful characters...the aesthetics are a little different from his own film with its period setting.

Agreed. If people were expecting Cap to wear his WWII costume for the modern setting, well, that would be just nonsense.

It's amazing how just in a few days time we've gone from very little imagery to a virtual smorgasbord of pix and vids. And they're just in the first week of filming here in Cleveland. I'm eager to get back downtown on Saturday to see how different it all looks.

The new costume is starting to grow on me with these new pics. Maybe it's because these are "action shots", as opposed to Evans just standing around that makes it work.

And I knew that they weren't going to use Cap's WW2 costume in Avengers, I just like that one better than this one. I just thought that the look really worked well for the character. And the new suit kind of defines the progression from "Captain America: Super-Soldier" to "Captain America: Super-Hero". It's certainly waaaaay better than what we got in 1990.

I forgot to mention that yesterday's Plain Dealer indicated that they were getting ready to start night shooting on Monday. I think this is going to be on the Public Square set, which is subbing for Stuttgart.

Some of the onset shooting in Cleveland, is this one of Kang's Scarab Gliders?

Yes, because when you've got a lot of garish costuming and color in a shot it's always a good idea to add more. There's a lot to be said for contrast, an idea particularly well-suited to the stark (sorry) differences between, say, Steve Rogers and Tony Stark as characters.

Iron Man's costume in the movies strikes me as a lot less silly than most superhero outfits, BTW. It's armor after all, and given movie Stark's character and lifestyle the notion that he'd paint it up like a sports car is kind of delightful.

red/gold armour guy, red, white and blue shield guy, archer, the fit chick, big green guy, blonde lunk with the big hammer. easy.

Exactly so.

I'd had enough of the notion that movies should recreate the colors and style of newsprint comics halfway through Dick Tracy, for me a thoroughly boring if not downright dismal experience.

Hmm, I actually just watched the EMH's Kang invasion 3 parter and I didn't even notice that.
The theory I read on Blastr, was that that's possibly a Skrull ship. Or a Badoon ship, setting up Guardians of the Galaxy.
