Beside showing the depicter of Steve Rogers in the superhero costume complete with his armor, the photo also features two heavily armed characters in the background.
The first official picture of Chris Evans' Steve Rogers in full costume has made its way out via Entertainment Weekly. The costume itself has been previously seen being worn by Evans' stunt double on the set of "Captain America: The First Avenger", but it is the first time that the actor is shown in the suit complete with his helmet and shield. Also seen in the newly-unveiled picture are two heavily armed characters who stand behind Evans.
Captain America's fans might easily notice that the costume looks strikingly different than the classic Captain America get-up seen in the comics. Regarding this, director Joe Johnston has previously claimed, "You can't really take him seriously in his flag pajamas." Evans takes about 25 minutes to suit up and "he likes to do it all by himself," costume designer Anna Sheppard revealed.
Focusing on the early days of the Marvel Universe when military service washout Steve Rogers volunteers for a top secret research project that turns him into Captain America and tries to fit in his new image, "Captain America: The First Avenger" is ready to head to U.S. cinemas on July 22. Sebastian Stan stars as Bucky Barnes while Hayley Atwell portrays Peggy Carter.
