First set pics showing Captain America's new costume

[IMG]file:///F:/DOCUME%7E1/NEVILL%7E1/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-1.jpg[/IMG] Check out Captain America and his sweet, sweet Nazi-slaying motorcycle. A new crop of gloriously patriotic pictures have emerged from Captain America: The First Avenger set showing Steve Rogers, his enemies, and a lot of sexy time period whips.

We have so many questions. What kind of gun is that strapped to the front of his wheel? What kind of car is that? Is everyone satisfied with the costume (we love the wings painted on his helmet!)? And finally, anyone else immediately think Rocketeer when when they saw the Nazi motorcycles?

I love that costume, and I get a definite Rocketeer vibe from these pictures.

Is it just me or do those look like pictures of toys and action figures? I'm not suggesting they are just that they look that way.

Which makes sense since Joe Johnston, who directed The Rocketeer, is directing Captain America.

Yeah, the only difference is that the movie version of the Rocketeer actually looked like the comic book character.

That does look pretty damn silly, but I'm sure it'll look much cooler in the actual movie.

I hope.

Most of what shows up on screen in a modern action movie is touched up post-production. Some guy's camera phone pictures from the set are not going to represent the finished product very well.

I thought the exact same thing. I'm sure it will end up looking a lot better on the big screen in the end, though.

That's the stunt doubles costume which probably looks different from Chris's...

Re: First set pics showing Captain America's new costume

Plus it's possible he has two costumes in the film. It looks like there's some influences from The Ultimates in there. After all it kind of seems in vogue to have superheroes have two costumes in a film now-we had Spider-Man do it, and a major plot point from Iron Man II was him building a second suit. Ditto with Batman.


I think Captain America might be one of the weaker Marvel films though. Johnston's an OK production designer (He was responsible for much of the look of the original Star Wars trilogy) but he's not the greatest director IMO. Funny that he and Favreau both worked on Chris Van Allsburg movies about magical board games.

He does have two costumes in the film. The first costume he wears is much more showy and the second he wears is the one we see here, which is a more practical outfit that he uses for his encounters in the battlefield.

Re: First set pics showing Captain America's new costume

And the gun strapped to Harley's front wheel is a Thompson sub-machinegun. That's historically correct since most such bikes carried them.

Re: First set pics showing Captain America's new costume

What made the new breed of superhero movies (starting with X-Men) good was that despite their fantasy setting and unbelievable powers/gadgets it was still rooted in reality somewhat which made it more accessible to mainstream audiences.

Now i see those "nazi bikes" and i wonder where the hell this realism went?
This looks like a cheap toy from the 50s and not something that was in use back in that time.

I like Cap's bike.. nice, realistic touch but the nazi bikes

Cap's bike looks like it's from the right time period. The Nazi bikes...not so much.
