Captain America posters costume

Posted on

Captain

There appear to be two very distinct schools of thought in regards to contemporary movie-superhero costumes. On one end, you have the functional Matrix-y black leather school, perfected in the original X-Men trilogy and best exemplified by Christian Bale’s unshowy body-armor outfit in the last two Batman movies. But this summer, there has been an explosion of retro-fabulous colorful super-costumes: Thor’s shiny royal armor, the blue-and-yellow jumpsuits of X-Men: First Class, and the ridiculously form-fitting shiny-emerald outfit on Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern. In that sense, Chris Evans’ costume in Captain America could be seen as a bit of a hybrid: The character still looks like he’s wearing a flag, but it’s a very functional flag with kevlar and pouches. A new poster that popped up on a Brazilian site called CineMarcado features a serious-looking photo of Evans outfitted head-to-toe. Do you like what you see? Check out the full-sized poster below, and then take our costume poll!
