Chris Evans imagined by fans as Captain America

03.31.2010

Right after the news of Ryan Reynolds being Green Lantern broke, there were quickly some pretty damn good photoshop jobs of what fans thought he would look like in costume. Well now that Captain America has been cast, the same is being done for Chris Evans, and the first few results are below via FilmSchoolRejects.

I think they look halfway decent, but I do have to say that even though I like Chris Evans 99% of the time, 1% of the time I hate him, mainly when he's making that face where it looks like he’s pouting like an overtanned Jersey girl on MySpace.

All in all I’m pretty happy with this final decision (god rest John Krasinski’s brief flirtation with greatness/disaster), and I’ve loved Evans in almost everything I’ve seen him in. I’m more worried about the movie itself at this point, more than Evan’s portrayal of the character. I’m still trying to get my head around boomerang shield fighting.

Extra Tidbit: So does vibranium make things really bouncy or what?

Nothing against Chris Evans, but I still think Cap needs to have an older more battle hardened look. I don't recall Cap being a pretty boy.

Cool but...

The first one especially is pretty cool, but isnt he making that gay pouting face that Paul's talking about in both of these pictures? especially the second one... if he can pull off a tough guy, leader persona this should be ok, but he looks extra gay in that second pic... i still stand by that i wouldve liked to see what Krasinski could do...

Nope...

...still not seeing Evans as the Cap. These pieces are pretty cool though, especially the one on top.

I know these are fan made, but I'm just not feeling him for the role. He seems too young and cocky. And he's been a marvel hero before, so I see human torch, not captain america.

Wow

Those look really BAD ASS! Although I like the first one better the costume in the second one looks mighty cool! Hope the costume designer takes this approach.

Vibrainium as I understand it from the murky depths of imaginary comic physics is supposed to absorb kentic energy, so the shield itself shouldn't bounce. But it's just comics. Turn of your brain and have, I know I will.

Excited and Anxious but Concerned

These poster works are great. This movie will be amazing no matter what. I do have minor concerns, but what can a Joblo guy do? Out of who they had Chris Evans is a great pick, I'm sure he'll do fine. Joe Johnston is talented and been in comics for a long time, he's got this one. So, I guess the one thing to do is: Hope & pray.
I'm brand new here, and I'm ok with 'sympathy' friends. See you later.

As long as Stark Idustries is mentioned I will be happy.
Who is playing RDJ father in IM2, was Tim Robbins confirmed? He should have a cameo in this movie along with RDJ after the WW2 scenes towards the end of the film.

First one is gold

Second one the gloves are too big. Plus the red under the arms should be blue.

Do it like this...

Since the cap shield was an easter egg in the iron man dvd they should make the shield collapsable and expandable ala tony starks suitcase armour. It could be something that he carries around in a small form on his belt or whatever, then he could activate it at it would expand just like what you see in the iron man 2 previews with Stark's suitcase armour.And withit being made by Stark, then it could have all this technology integrated into it.So the shield acting like a boomerang wouldn't be

It could maybe lock on to bad guys or whatever. Just a thought. Maybe the shield would have less of a cheese factor that way.

vibranium is just really strong and really lightweight. The rest is just physics/tactics. also, the attmept to duplicate the Vibranium alloy in Cap's shield is what led to the creation of Adamantium.

Evans was the best choice to play Captain America. These posters are awesome and when the official poster does come out, I'll be sure to get it.

Wonder what Mike Vogel would have looked like as Captain America.

I have to admit I'm gradually warming up to the notion of Evans as Captain America. It could have been a whole lot worse. I hope I'm proven to be wrong in thinking he's a poor fit.
