If you'll recall, yesterday we posted a description by JoBlo's Mike Sampson of the star-spangled costume for Captain America: The First Avenger. If you found his detailed description a little difficult to envision, fear not: AICN has posted four images that Sampson now confirms "aren't just fan mockups -- these are the real deal."
"The art you see [...] is just one of the many pieces that I was shown last week," Sampson writes. "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."
You can click on the image at the right to see it much larger. More are available at AICN.
Directed by Joe Johnston, Captain America: The First Avenger is due in theaters on July 22, 2011. The Marvel Studios film stars Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Sebastian Stan and Hayley Atwell.
