The first look at Chris Evans as Captain America recently has been unveiled during "Captain America: The First Avenger" panel at San Diego Comic Con, but the suit seen in the footage was said to be a "test version". Speaking to MTV Movie News, the actor has hinted that there will be more than one costume for his character in the film.
"There's a couple stages and initially in the script, Steve [Rogers] isn't Captain America right away. He gets the injection and isn't asked to go to war right off the bat," he began his explanation. "He's used in different areas, so he has different stages of the suit. I don't think he actually jumps into the final suit until the third act of the film."
He additionally claimed that the suit will fit the film's setting during World War II, stating "It's a World War II movie, so I think a little bit of a cumbersome feel to it and something that's a bit chunkier ... not only serves the time period, I think it looks better." Evans went on detailing, "It's not this sleek spandex suit. It looks like something you might wear in the '40s in the middle of a war."
From talking about the suit, the conversation moved on to discuss Captain America's shield. Asked if the shield will also have a few different looks in the film, the depicter of the titular character said, "Well, during the USO tour, there's obviously a different shield. And he goes on a couple missions, he goes AWOL and kind of takes the USO shield. And he's kind of allowed to be this soldier and they outfit him with the new uniform. They decide to outfit him with an updated shield."
"Captain America: The First Avenger" is currently in production in London, England. It centers its story on Steve Rogers who volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. This Joe Johnston-directed action film secures July 22, 2011 slot for its U.S. release.
