Some pics of Captain America's full costume-wearing stunt double have hit the web!

5 years agoby:

Some kind of unintentionally funny images (at least to me) have appeared online of Chris Evans' stunt double in full 1940s Captain Doublechin regalia, taken from the set of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER.

Now, obviously, a stunt double is not usually seen at close proximity or in long, lingering shots, so whatever critiques or jokes we have of the dude in the pictures, they're likely moot. However, this is the first we're seeing of the actual Cap costume out in the open... what do you guys think of it?

CAPTAIN AMERICA is set to open July 22, 2011.

Synopsis: Based on the Marvel Comics character from World War II. A brave, yet mild-mannered young soldier named Steve Rogers, volunteers to undergo a series of experiments for a US army Super Soldier program. The military succeeds in transforming him into a human weapon, but quickly decide that their Super Soldier is far too expensive a creation to risk in combat. So, they decide to put him to use as an army celebrity and parade him across Europe to boost morale by performing in USO shows for American troops. He is even given a costume that bear the colors of Old Glory for the stage. Then, when a Nazi plot reveals itself Rogers must rise up and and become the First Avenger, in order to save his country. Steve Rogers becomes Captain America and he earns his way into the hearts and souls of every American, bringing hope and justice to a war-weary nation. Later, during a mission to Germany to stop his archenemy - The Red Skull, from launching rockets at the allies, Captain America sacrifices himself and winds up frozen in ice for almost six decades! Revived, Steve Rogers now must join forces with new heroes and become an Avenger of the modern age.







Extra Tidbit: Seeing those WWII-era motorcycles always makes me think of the chase scene in INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE.

Hmm...

Are they doing an homage to the "Dark Knight inspires vigilantes" bit? Cos he sure seems like he's wearing hockey pads.

yeesh

I'm hoping this is a stunt version of the suit. The pants look like one of those Halloween costumes you would buy your kid at Wal-mart. And is it me, or do the pants have pinstripes on them?? If this is the real suit, I'm hoping the right lighting will make it look better. In my humble opinion it looks like blue plastic.

sorry fanboys

Now I could be wrong, but I have a feeling Captain America and Thor are really gonna kill the Avengers, and possibly Marvel. There is NO WAY these characters can work in real life. One is a walking piece of over-zealous nationalism and the other is a norse god for fuck-sake. Unless these movies are 5x more intelligent than they look (not likely), I have a feeling this and thor will be laughably stupid. ...so go ahead "-12"

Embarassing

Are you telling me they couldn't get a stunt guy who at least resembles Chris Evans? Even the costume looks bad. Looks like an SNL sketch. I hope the end result is better.

Everytime crappy photos leak they quickly release official photos to calm down the complaints like Conan.

People have to realize

I think people have to realize that the movie is a period piece. iIf they did know anything about the Captain America Mythos they'd know that in this case at least I GUARANTEE that he will probably have a more modern look to the suit in the Avengers movie. It's a very good attempt to not escape the period in which the movie is being filmed and I for one amd PUMPED to see that movie... then again Captain America is my fave character in the marvel universe and I still love the Matt Salinger

Ok, here goes...It looks like a power ranger suit. Why do we need painted on 6packs?

However, I do realize this is just the stunt double and Chris' costume was custom tailored for him. I'm meh right now.

Like it. It'll look better when we see Evans in it and when we get a look at the trailer.

I'll back up the people who say it looks like a Halloween costume. I don't know how it works exactly, but I'm hoping that the double is wearing a lesser quality costume..

I'm happy with the overall reception of these pictures (or at the very least, the mature reservation until they see the costume in motion). The internet is such an easy place to bash things unmercifully.

At any rate, I dig it. I think it looks cool and the bike looks sweet.

This defintely look better then I expected but it's still difficult to tell how the tone of it will come across.

I'll reserve judgement at least until I see a trailer. But Evans is the man.

The actual costume looks much better than I expected. At least the wings are painted on but they kinda look like old (I think) Honda motorcycle logo, hehe. Overall the costume looks awesome. I really like the damaged-look on the shield.

I'm sure the stunt costume is no way near as nice as the acting costume, as it needs to be much more flexible and mobile! I think it looks really promising! The shot from behind with the damaged shield makes me giddy!

Suit generally looks ok...

but I'm holding judgement till we get a press release image or something. It's not properly lit, it's not in context, why judge now? Plus it's currently filming 10 mins away from where I work in the UK. Am gonna wander down one day, if I get any snaps, I'll send them your way Joblo!

Cap has clearly had a red bull, he's got wings!!!
