I love it - it's the original comic book design, sans chain mail, and it's cheesy as hell.

Because they were obviously going out of their way to make it look cheesy.

I still like it better than the buckle & strap monstrosity they gave him, though.

Come on, they played fair - they didn't put plastic ears on it.

His "real" outfit as designed for the movie is brilliant, suspenders and all. I can't wait for this movie.

The USO costume looks like something out of 1940s serial.

Cap's costume in the serials, BTW, was dark brown rather than blue - that worked better in black-and-white. IIRC, George Reeve's first Superman outfit had similar color substitutions.

Once again, here, they ditched the goofy little head wings.

Wow, they really did. Way to piss all over Kirby.

I think the USO suit looks over the top great myself.

I dunno...the USO costume looks exactly like the comic costume (minus the chain-mail - but that is rarely drawn in anyway). If it looks cheesy, that's because the costume as drawn is cheesy. Honestly, it really is. Especially for a war time character. The makers of the movie didn't have to go out of their way. The comic did it for them.

Don't get me wrong. I love Cap. He's my favorite superhero. However, what is drawn and looks cool on paper doesn't always translate to live action in a movie made for mass audiences. Very few characters are able to pull that off. Cap isn't one of them.

I think it will to be a joke with him just wearing that costume for one scene, and he will put on the official suit later on for the rest of the movie. The first Spider-Man did the same thing with Peter wearing his dorky prototype stuit for wrestling.

I think they pulled it off very well in the 1990 movie. I know, I know... ears. Looks good anyway.

The USO outfit? It really does. It looks very much like the kind of thing they would have come up with in the 1940s or 50s - again, reference the old CA serial outfit (and maybe the movie costumer did).

As for "pissing on Kirby" - he's dead; he doesn't care, so...? Pleasing the folks who think this stuff is holy scripture isn't worth a single lost ticket sale.
