Screw words, now you can SEE Captain America's costume!

06.02.2010

Words. PSHAW. Who needs em. As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. And now we have a picture to go with the thousand words I wrote trying to describe the CAPTAIN AMERICA costume. Ain't It Cool posted some art today that aren't just fan mockups - these are the real deal.

The art you see to the right is just one of the many pieces that I was shown last week. We were asked by our source to not run the images on the site though we agreed that I could discuss them in detail. But now that AICN has posted them, it seems like fair game (also they seem to be removed of the watermarks and details that would've given away my source). You can see that it's not quite the Ultimates version of Captain America that many thought but it's somewhat close.

So now that you see what I was trying to talk about last week, what do you think? Click here to see the rest of the images at Ain't It Cool.

I think this is going to work

Okay, I gotta admit it, this is gonna work.. for years Ive always made Fun of Captain America & any fan of his.. Ive always thought the Comic Book Costume is corny & I still Feel the Comic Book Costume is corny.. A Few Years back a co-worker of mine said he couldnt wait to see a Captain America Movie & I told him that it will not translate well on Film if they keep the costume as it was in the comics & cartoons.. If you look at the Cap movie From 91' you can tell how corny a person looks

If you look at the Cap movie From 91' you can tell how corny a person looks wearing that costume in real life.. BUT after seeing this updated concept of the costume I can say that it will work on Film and now I am interested in seeing one my least favorite superhero characters..

Im Glad they covered his ears, Ive always thought he looked corny with his ears exposed like that with those wings sticking out.. the only thing i think they should do is paint on the wings to the side of the helmet to please Die-Hard fans.. I say a mixture of wings that resemble the original Cap with a military type look.. something like wings that are honored to a soldier for his accomplishments.. The WWII costume should look really kool too. it should have that vintage 1940s look to it..

Looks pretty damn good! True to Captain while being functional for a film and not looking camp! Could be cool if he earns his wings in the film or is given a costume update with them in Avengers!

So fill me in. I don't really know much about Capt America. It takes place during WWII or during the present? He's a soldier? Why a shield but no gun? Does he have super powers?

1. Cap Am. was "originally" from WWII. Depending on the story arc, he is/isn't the same guy in the present. 2. He is a Soldier for America, so kinda, yes. He fights in our wars "for the greater good". 3. A shield because it's a nearly impervious and super-light metal that he uses as a weapon as well. 4. No super powers, really... just super-duper top-of-the-line almost super-human reflexes, speed and agility.
Hope that helps.

Tell ya what,I'll give them kudos for the costume-I do however love the little wings on the sides of Cap's cowl in the comics-BUT- alas, that only works on the printed page. Not a half bad suit here. This is after all a feature film seeking realism-so yea,I'm down with the look! + Love that unmistakable shield! that can NEVER be changed!

To all those saying it's too futuristic for WWII, didn't Sampson say this is his post-freezing look in the original article? Isn't he supposed to have a more classic look during the war?

Long time coming...

Ive been waiting on this for A LONG time. I wrote a spec of Cap a few years ago, and I managed to get it in the hands of a lot of influential people (Adi Granov being one) but Marvel had their own plans. I gotta say it looks really, really cool so far. I saw a mock up on AITC with the wings just painted on the helmet and it looks even better. I hope that "one" of the suits employs the chain mail armor but honestly, this looks great!!!

The one thing I don't like is how part of the helmet goes under his eyes. I know it's taken from one of the comic books, but to me it doesn't work for a helmet aesthetic. But really, that's the ONLY thing I don't like about this costume. He looks pretty fucking ace.

my 2 cents

overall i think it looks great but i'll nitpick about it later. but first, to all those who think he looks silly and don't think the gov't would send a guy dressed like this into combat because he'd be a " human target" to the enemies...YOU'RE MISSING THE POINT! HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE SEEN! by his potentially battle weary brothers in arms who are to be inspired by this living,breathing,fighting,ass kicking "flag bearer" who bravely charges into combat! for those complaining he'd be stupid to go

HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE SEEN! by his potentially battle weary brothers in arms who are to be inspired by this living,breathing,fighting,ass kicking "flag bearer" who bravely charges into combat! for those complaining he'd be stupid to go into combat with nothing but a shield...closer examination of the first pick and you'll see a pistol holster on his right(your left) leg. i believe ultimates/ww 2 cap at times sported a pistol into battle.

as for my nit picky complaints...maybe too much fabric piping on the upper thighs. on the knees it makes sense but the rest is a tad overkill. also, the black overlapping utility straps seems a tad overkill as well, like suspenders with a belt which is kinda redundant. would have preferred for the black strap part to be under the blue chest plate area or not present at all. more symmetrical spacing between the red straps and white under shirt (or just possibly wider red straps) would better read visually as red/white flag stripes.

Yes Yes and yes again, I was worried how cap would look like from the comic pages to the big screen, but man have they nailed it, my anticipation has been growing since Chris Evans was announced as cap but now it@s gone off the scale this and Thor in the same year what more can you ask for

The worded description made me nervous but this is actually pretty flipping cool. I'm not a fan of the red buckles but it looks like Cap and Evans looks comfortable inside Cap's suit and boots, wielding the shield.

Neoprene foam wetsuits first appeared in the 1950's and were later sandwiched, with thin sheets of tougher material such as nylon, so it stands to reason S.H.E.I.L.D. could have it earlier.
Pilots were already wearing leather in WWI and WWII.

The first usage of the term Flak Jacket refers to the armour originally developed by the Wilkinson Sword company during World War II to help protect Royal Air Force (RAF) air

Neoprene foam wetsuits first appeared in the 1950's and were later sandwiched, with thin sheets of tougher material such as nylon, so it stands to reason S.H.E.I.L.D. could have it earlier.
Pilots were already wearing leather in WWI and WWII.

The first usage of the term Flak Jacket refers to the armour originally developed by the Wilkinson Sword company during World War II to help protect Royal Air Force (RAF) air personnel from the flying debris and shrapnel thrown by German anti-aircraft guns' high-explosive shells (flak itself is an abbreviation for the German word for "anti-aircraft gun")
The jacket consisted of manganese plates sewn into a waistcoat made of ballistic nylon (a material engineered by the DuPont company); therefore, flak jackets functioned as an evolved form of plate armour or brigandine.

During World War II, flak jackets and steel helmets were worn by US Navy personnel on aircraft carriers during battle, since the ships and especially their flight decks offered little protection for their crew. The jackets were supposed to protect against shrapnel and heat.

Aramid fibers are a class of heat-resistant and strong synthetic fibers. They are used in aerospace and military applications, for ballistic rated body armor fabric, in bicycle tires, and as an asbestos substitute.

Aromatic polyamides were first introduced in commercial applications in the early 1960s, with a meta-aramid fiber produced by DuPont under the tradename Nomex. This fiber, which handles similarly to normal textile apparel fibers, is characterized by its excellent resistance to heat, as it neither melts nor ignites in normal levels of oxygen. It is used extensively in the production of protective apparel, air filtration, thermal and electrical insulation as well as a substitute for asbestos. Meta-aramid is also produced in the Netherlands and Japan by Teijin under the tradename Teijinconex, in China by SRO Group (China) under the trade name X-Fiper , Yantai under the tradename New Star and a variant of meta-aramid in France by Kermel under the tradename Kermel. Based on earlier research by Monsanto Company and Bayer, a fiber - para-aramid - with much higher tenacity and elastic modulus was also developed in the 1960s-1970s by DuPont and Akzo Nobel, both profiting from their knowledge of rayon, polyester and nylon processing. Much work was done by Stephanie Kwolek in 1961 while working at DuPont, and that company was the first to introduce a para-aramid called Kevlar in 1973. A similar fiber called Twaron with roughly the same chemical structure was introduced by Akzo in 1978. Due to earlier patents on the production process, Akzo and DuPont had a patent war in the 1980s. Twaron is currently owned by the Teijin company

Once again, it would make sense in this world for S.H.I.E.L.D. and Howard Stark to have this tech prior to the 60's."

First of all for those questioning why the military would create this uniform for Captain "AMERICA", it is because Steve Rogers is a symbol. In WW2 are at war with the forces of evil who are bent on exterminating an entire race and taking over the world (read your history, its true). Scientists have created the first "Super Soldier" who will be the Sentinel of Liberty and defender of Truth, Justice and the American Way (to borrow from our red caped friend). Imagine the Nazi forces seeing this

Imagine our troops seeing a great leader dressed in the colors of our flag leading them to victory against the most evil man in the world. Crush your enemies morale while boistering the faith and courage of your soldiers. THAT is why Steve wears the uniform. And as for why does he just have that shield? Read the comics, thats all Captain America needs *cue National Anthem*. Thank you and good night.

What's with the overuse of black stripes on his upper body armor? Has the Cap ever appeared like this in any medium before? No. It's like pissing Jack Kirby in the face. While laughing.

One more thing, does this even look like it was made during WWII? No. More like the 90's. At the earliest.

I half agree. It depends on the material used. For example, this DRAWING looks very 90s cos it's glossy and shiny, but if he has beat up brown leather shoes, a proper metal helmet and dirty material jacket I can see it looking 40s. Let's wait until we see the actual costume.

And, don't you think you're overreacting a tad. Pissing in Kirby's face, for having two rather minimal black stripes. Remember people had similar reservations about, oh I don't know, every superhero movie ever made.

This looks great, its a bit too modern but it helps ties the look in for the avengers movie without 50 redesigns. Only one problem, needs a middle stripe like this: [link] makes a world of difference

I was so expecting to write 'FAIL' once this was revealed...but I have to say I like it - the advantage MArvel has had so far with their movies is that the majority (so far)of characters weren't spandex clad heroes (Iron Man, Hulk, Thor) So could be more easily changed without losing the feel (unlike Daredevil and the X-Men)- this I have to say is a very good job on the designers part as it captures the feel without losing anything important, and fits into the more 'real-world' feel that they

I had to come round to it a little bit, but yea the art is admittedly pretty awesome.

Would still LOVE to see those painted wings though, I think that would just clench it for me.

hmmmm

I'm just not with the casting choice man. Also, the wings should be maybe painted on the the helmet or something. Something just isn't right about this. Should be darker tooo. too bright

Neck Movement!!

Looks like they finally are catching on with making their suits for mobility as well as looking cool.

It doesn't look like it will be awkward and I can see one of those stupid scenes where they have wings on the WWII suit but Chris plucks them off or something the second he sees it.

Why are so many people

equating "realism" with quality? If you can deal with Capt. A's story, but not a marginally improbable costume, you're missing the forest for the trees. Man I'm sick of everything being better because it's "gritty" especially when it has no real business being "gritty" in the first damn place. Just saying.

Dude, no one is saying that the word "gritty" has the same meaning as the word "realism." When people say something looks realistic, they mean that they could picture that thing actually existing in real life. That's what movies are all about. In Iron Man, Favreau and his team made us feel like a dude wearing an iron suit and flying around could actually exist. No, these heroes (especially Thor) are not likely to ever truly exist in the real world, but the reason people love superhero mythology

No, these heroes (especially Thor) are not likely to ever truly exist in the real world, but the reason people love superhero mythology so much is because we want them to exist. The added layer of realism helps us fit these fantastical characters into our imaginations. In the case of Captain America's costume, the designers clearly made their best attempt to make it seem like it could actually be a battle-ready suit, helmet, body armor and all. This proposed suit looks far more "realistic" than a suit of feathery spandex. Just saying.

Movies are not the "realism" medium just because they most commonly portray live action, and while a comic book movie does draw to mind the fascination of seeing images from a page in live motion this doesn't pre-determine the style of degree of realism in the film interpretation, as it is simply that. I see what you're saying and that you've thought about your opinion, but my point is that a more apparently practical outfit does not do the job of bringing the character "to life" nor does it

I see what you're saying and that you've thought about your opinion, but my point is that a more apparently practical outfit does not do the job of bringing the character "to life" nor does it frustrate it; it's up to any number of other facets of film making, and it's annoying that people award or withhold so much approval of merit based on whether it looks to their untrained eye like a probable outfit for the purposes. If a "feathery suit" was OK when you were reading a comic, it should not become automatically not OK for a film, lest you've radically narrowed your perceptions of either medium.

Comic book geeks and film geeks like myself hardly have "untrained" eyes, my friend. We know what looks good, and what makes sense in the film world. I was just trying to say that I think it's cool that these film versions of Marvel costumes look practical.

Just figured that I'd chime in on the whole "realism" debate. Spandex costumes for superheroes just does not work for live action. It is impossible to make it fit in the same manner as in comics, which is why the costume designers have had to modify said costumes to be practical in real life. The Batman series of movies is a perfect example of using spandex on the classic TV show, which fit the silliness of it all, to the rubber/armor costume of the Michael Keaton movies (and those that

The Batman series of movies is a perfect example of using spandex on the classic TV show, which fit the silliness of it all, to the rubber/armor costume of the Michael Keaton movies (and those that followed with nipples) and finally ending in the Nolan/Bale version that has Kevlar cloth with armor plating on it (although he even goes through an evolution between movies 1 & 2).

If it pleases the court, I submit the 1944 version of the costume:

and

Then we have the 1979 version:

and

Then we move onto the 1991 flick:

and
[link][link]

I suppose we could always go with this more recent version that's out there:

My point is that you have to add "realism" to the costume if you want it to be taken seriously. Unless you're looking for a movie like Blankman or Mirageman (Argentine flick), then you want the character to be able to fit in with the rest of the world.

I really appreciate the thoughtful insight from both of you - I further see where you're coming from, and for the record, I think the Cap A suit is sharp for what it's after. My only quibble on “untrained eyes” was that we'd likely have no idea what would be genuinely practical - honestly, would something this outlandish be genuinely practical? If it’s a super hero costume, make it one, is my outlook. That doesn’t mean cheap spandex, nor must it mean uber-down to earth impressions of

I thought the Superman movies, Spiderman, and Burton’s Batman flicks all sported comic-esque, yet realistic outfits, and I might have liked something closer to that for Capt. A, but this’ll do to. So there we are. And thank you, YodasBeast for that captivating look at history :D

Awsome

Seriously, the costume looks freaking awsome. I figured maybe they'll do a cop out like some other marvel films and not make the costumes not looks quite right or comletely (fasionable with todays times...xmen), but this is true comic book style how it should be.

I'm a big fan of comic boom movies and usually get a tingle down my spine when something awsome appears i'm familiar with, I just got tingles looking at these pics.

I'm extremely impressed. I admit had my reservations based on the description, but this looks perfect. Glad to see they're sticking with realistic costume themes, like Thor and Iron Man did.

He still needs a weapon

The costume is fine, but the concept of rushing into a warzone where hundreds of MACHINE GUNS are firing at you (and ESPECIALLY at you, the goofball in blue and red and not in cammie) with only a dinky shield and NO WEAPON...it strikes me as completely ludicrous.

He's a soldier in a war and you've taken away the best friend every soldier has -- his weapon.

Oh, and spare me the "his shield is his weapon" nonsense...once he throws that shield he's in even BIGGER trouble and can't fend off

If semi-realism is your target

then this looks like a pretty sharp design. I must say that I prefere it when movies simply bring the classic comic image to life (yes I know this is one of the early images of CA) rather than meeting reality half-way. I prefere Spiderman's screen image to Wolverine's by a mile, and I sort of wish Capt. America held truer to what I picture him as.
