That's quite a bit closer to the mark, yes. If it looks that good in photographs, I will be happier.

Really puts the lie into Johnston's statements that Captain America's "flag pajamas" wouldn't work onscreen, though, doesn't it?

No, because, as drawn, the comic costume wouldn't work on screen. Same sort of thing with Batman's costume in the comic versus the movie versions (Bat's comic costume wouldn't work onscreen*). The Cap-suit in the promo art, though modeled on the costume, is more like a "Batman Begins"-style version of it (though it looks a bit too modern and would feel out of place (more so) in a 1940s period piece).

*Adam West's costume doesn't count as that show and movie were intentionally made as campy comedies (where a pajama-style suit would work).

That's fan art? I thought it was artwork to promote the upcoming Avengers merchandise.

^ You are right. I didn't read The Avengers thread until afterwards where it was stated as legit. My bad on that.

Indeed it is.

I'm very impressed with how 'real' they've made Red Skull look.

I agree with you there. Adam West's costume worked perfectly for what that show was. But it's the easiest thing in the world to go out of your way to make the costume look goofy & laughable. I'm really impressed when the filmmakers find a way to make it look the way it ought to look.

Me too. The Red Skull looks pretty much perfect, and I'm really looking forward to seeing Hugo Weaving play the part. It can't have been easy to sculpt something that looks skull-like over an actor's face. Kudos to the makeup designers.

Seems like Hugo Weaving hasn't actually shown his face in a movie I've seen since the last Matrix film. He must be getting used to it by now. He's reaching Ron Pearlman levels, here.

I've seen pictures from the movie of Hugo Weaving's face, so he appears to show it somewhere along the line.
Which face is Red Skull's mask, and which is his real face? The only Cap comic I've ever read (Ed Brubaker's #1) only showed his Red Skull appearance.

The Red Skull's face is a red skull.

Does he wear a mask in the comics, or is that something they came up with just for the movie?

Originally, he wore a Red Skull mask. He later had his consciousness transferred into a clone body of Steve Rogers. However, a bout with Cap left him horribly disfigured in a manner that resembled his old mask (irony, I guess.) He often wears a mask that makes him look normal in order to blend into society (because a guy with a red skull for a face kinda sticks out.) Since then, though, he's jumped bodies a couple times and is currently residing in an android body which has the disfigured face.

^ Clearly, the Skull's led a quiet life.

I think that is where we disagree; I don't think they "went out of their way" to make the suit look goofy. If anything, to be the opposite of easy; easy would be to copy and paste from the comic to the screen (note: this isn't intended as a slam).

The costume Cap wears during the USO show appears to have been ripped right from the comic (sans chain mail) and looks to be a perfect reproduction. If anything the USO suit looks goofy, because the costume looks goofy. It works on the page; not so well on the screen.
