<i>Empire</i> Debuts <i>Captain America</i> Cover, Teases New Movie Still

Empire magazine has unveiled the star-spangled cover for its March issue, which features a new photo of Chris Evans in costume from Captain America: The First Avenger. (Granted, it appears to be the product of the same shoot that produced the image used by Entertainment Weekly last fall, but still …)

“I think he’s the ideal human,” Evans says of the Sentinel of Liberty. “Not just American. It’s what being a good person is. Steve’s managed to overcome all the shortcomings he’s had in life and he does what’s good and what he believes is right.”

The magazine also offers a rundown of the contents in the March issue, which include another new shot of Evans in costume (above) — we’ll likely see a larger version surface online soon — and previews of X-Men: First Class, Sucker Punch and more.

Directed by Joe Johnston, Captain America: The First Avenger stars Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Hugo Weaving, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Samuel L. Jackson, Stanley Tucci, Dominic Cooper, Neal McDonough and Tommy Lee Jones. It opens on July 22. The first trailer will debut Feb. 6 during Fox’s Super Bowl telecast.
