One of the first shots of Chris Evans in full-on Captain America gear has hit the Net.  Personally, I think it looks bada*s, and I’m thankful that it isn’t a just a blue spandex suit with some body armor plating installed in it.  I still can’t get those disturbing images out of my head from some of the pre-Nolan era Batman movies that made the Dark Knight look like a nipple loving man freak.

I think the suit they chose for ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ brings the action hero into his WWII time period very nicely.  It kind of looks like something you may have seen back in the day, and not overly futuristic looking like some of today’s superheros on film.

We should be able to see the Captain in all of his glory, and awesome gear this July 22 in 3D and 2D.  You’ve been thinking about getting your own superhero costume…
