Aint It Cool News posted these images earlier today of what, at first, looked to be possible concept art of Captain America’s costume from the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger. Well, within the hour they had confirmation, and it looks like these are in fact genuine concept designs for the suit. Take a look:
I, for one, couldn’t be happier with these designs. They evoke the right feel of modern with the classic, borrowing from the original costume, and a little from the Ultimates, without being too beholden to any one element. My only beef is this; where’s the wings? In my mind, Cap works best when there’s just that little bit of over the top style to him, and the wings on the helmet do that for me. I’m not saying he should have actual wings fluttering off the sides, but a 40’s style airbrushed wing on the side of the helmet would be a nice touch.
But that’s just my take… what do you think of the costume? Sound off in the comments below.
