Okay, technically, it's not Chris Evans as Captain America, but these images of Evans' stunt double give us a nice look at what the Captain America costume will look like at the end of the day. The images leaked online late last night via The Superficial, and they show Evans' stunt double decked out in a very WWII-esque Captain America suit, while riding what looks to be an Army-issued motorcycle.
New Set Photos: Captain America in Costume!
Relax spoiler nerds, this probably won't be the only Captain America costume Chris Evans wears in the film. In fact, director Joe Johnston has stated before that Evans will don multiple costumes throughout the movie. Which version this is, we don't know, but at least we can anticipate a badass motorcycle chase at some point.
Captain America: The First Avenger will primarily be set during World War II and follow the origin story of Steve Rogers, who volunteers for a top secret research project after being rejected from the military; a project that eventually turns him into a sort of super-soldier (aka Captain America). Naturally, once he gains super powers, he'll have a whole mess of bad guys to take out, including his arch-nemesis The Red Skull (Hugo Weaving).
Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters on July 22nd, 2011, two months after Thor. What do you think of the new images, and which Marvel film are you looking forward to more – Thor or Captain America?
