Chris Evans Gives the Captain America Costume a Thumbs Up

by at . Comments

Not too long ago, we posted an article detailing the design of the new Captain America costume that Chris Evans would be wearing in Joe Johnston's upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger.

Well, since then, the costume was manufactured, fitted and now Chris Evans gets to wear it for filming! Here's what the actor had to say about his new threads:

"It’s an amazing costume. Given the fact that his costume is red, white and blue, and it’s tight, and it could be kind of flash and over the top – and given the fact that the movie takes place in the ‘40s and ‘50s – they’ve done a really good job of making it look really cool."

"I think everyone that’s going to see it is going to say, 'Okay, well done. Well done. I think they got the costume right. The casting they completely ruined, but the costume they nailed!'"

Compared to the spandex-like slenderness of his Fantastic Four outfit, Evans says, “[In the FF suit] …you could move around quite well. This is a little more cumbersome. It doesn’t exactly breathe the way the Fantastic Four costume breathed, but it’s the way it should be. Any type of World War II uniform would be a little chunky, and I think that’s what kind of gives it its character.”

Check out the suit below, and see more images of the design in our Captain America pictures gallery! Captain America: The First Avenger starts filming this month in London, and will be released in theaters on July 22, 2011.
