After yesterday’s cover reveal of Chris Evans as the star-spangled Avenger in Marvel Studios’ upcoming “Captain America: The First Avenger,” it should come as no surprise that the still from the film accompanying the print article on sale today have already made their way to the web. This morning Comic Book Movie posted a look at the magazine’s feature including some early shots of Evans in his “U.S.O.” uniform.
“The costume is a flag, but the way we’re getting around that is we have Steve Rogers forced into the USO circuit,” director Joe Johnston told the LA Times earlier this year of the concept behind Cap’s first uniform. “After he’s made into this super-soldier, they decide they can’t send him into combat and risk him getting killed. He’s the only one and they can’t make more. So they say, ‘You’re going to be in this USO show’ and they give him a flag suit. He can’t wait to get out of it.”
A sampling of that costume and an early look at Hugo Weaving’s pre-Red Skull in Hydra uniform are below. For more, check out Comic Book Movie, and be sure to stay tuned to CBR and Spinoff Online for all the news on “Captain America: The First Avenger.”
