Note: Here are some publicity stills from the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger film. Thoughts below. – D.T.
I thought about it when these first came out, but with the new high resolution shots, I was able to get a better look and, I think, confirm my suspicions. Cap has two costumes in the movie, and we’ve already seen the other one. (Partially.)
In these pics, I think we’re seeing a mostly covered version of Cap’s classic uniform. He’s got the triangle shield, a helmet rather than a mask, and a clearly different uniform than we see in the action shots. We can only see a little bit of it here, but it’s clearly a different material than the publicity costume (which looks far too modern for WWII) and has a simpler design. This makes me think we’ll see this earlier look as well as the final one.
Check out this close up below for a look at the blue fabric and embroidered white symbol. You can also see the red and white torso stripes through the hole in jacket:
I’m definitely looking forward to seeing more of the Cap Classic look, even if his WWII era costume consists of a Captain America shirt and period Army fatigues. I think that would work fine for Cap.
