Digging Thor, but Cap without wings just looks stupid.

I kind of still miss the wings, but that costume is awesome.  I like it a lot more than spandex chainmail, wings or not.  Ironically, I think the general puplic would find a "Cap with Wings" less appealing.

He looks like a Gi Joe with a parachute attached to his back.

A possible teaser poster for Captain America, although it isn't confirmed that it is "official".

Time to start splitting up some topics...since this is my boy I'll start this...feel free to start other threads as needed

As was said in the Comic Movie thread:



Costume officially revealed in the SDCC prints, gotta say it isn't too bad.  I'd have liked to have seen some wings on the head but I get the WWII bit

That is pretty cool. I'm really looking forward to this as well, being a big Cap fan.  :)

I thought the costume was already revealed back in June?

Oh, could be.  I definitely like the new costume, but would be nice if they found a way to incorporate the little white wings.  Maybe it would look too hokey outside of a comic.

I agree with what others have said, I'm pretty pumped for a Cap movie as well.  It sounds like we'll see something about it at Comic Con this weekend, as Chris Evans/Hugo Weaving will be there signing autographs.  Plus, I have a feeling there might be some big stuff going on at the Marvel movies panel.  As far as the costume, I like it as well.  From what I have read, I think he has 2-3 different costumes in the movie for different reasons (I won't get into in case of spoilers), so the wings may show up on one of those.  I do think the art we've seen so far represents the "main" Cap suit.

I was sort of wondering what you thought of everything so far (casting, costume, etc.), being such a big Cap fan Scott.  Should be a great year for comic movies next year, specifically for you MN guys (Scott/Jeff) with both Cap and Green Lantern next summer.  Hopefully they'll both be great, as well as Thor and X-Men: First Class.

Then they should have picked someone else whose costume they wouldn't have to screw with. I am SO SICK of these stupid movies with their revisionist history trying to re-write source material which was WAY, WAY better and more imaginative than anything these Hollywood hacks could ever have devised.

Seriously, they're freaking tiny white wings. What's the big deal?

I'm still waiting for a comic book movie that's 100% faithful to the source material. Watchmen came close but he ruined it with that stupid, schlocky made-up ending.  >:(

What's the big deal with omitting them, then?

Well, 100% faithful to the source material would be including the wings dude.  For anyone that grew up reading cap, like me, that was a symbolic part of his costume.  Seems like it would be easy enough to just paint them on if nothing else.

As for authenticity, I thought Iron Man was pretty close.  Outside of changing the war Stark was tagged in and fastforwarding 200 issues to Iron Monger, it was pretty true to form.  Avengers won't be quite right with the Ultimates Fury bringing them together, but that's actually an improved way of linking the characters (go read AVengers #1 - it's really not that good and I'm a HUGE Avengers fan).  Just like most books, they can't tell that much story in just one movie, so I'm okay with a little creative editing to bring together the best elements.

Heck, it's been a while since I saw the first Spider-Man, but even that was pretty close to his origin wasn't it?
