When Chris Evans suits up as Captain America for [movie id="390379"]“Captain America: The First Avenger,”[/movie] due out next summer, there will be several incarnations of his costume throughout the movie.
“So far, so good. I think it’s a process. I’ve been working on other projects, so there hasn’t been as much time as I would have liked to be in London and kind of go through trial by error to make it the best, most comfortable thing in the world,” he told MTV News at Comic-Con in San Diego about his fittings thus far for the outfits he will wear as Captain America in the flick.
“But it’s not bad. It’s a World War II movie, so I think a little bit of a cumbersome feel to it and something that’s a bit chunkier … not only serves the time period, I think it looks better,” he added. “It’s not this sleek spandex suit. It looks like something you might wear in the ’40s in the middle of a war.”
In order to get it right in the film, Steve Rogers and the military must tackle a few uniforms before we get the chance to see the Captain America we all know. “There’s a couple stages and initially in the script, Steve isn’t Captain America right away,” he explained. “He gets the injection and isn’t asked to go to war right off the bat. He’s used in different areas, so he has different stages of the suit. I don’t think he actually jumps into the final suit until the third act of the film.”
So, does that mean Captain America’s famous shield will also have a few different looks in the film? “Well, during the USO tour, there’s obviously a different shield,” Evans explained. “And he goes on a couple missions, he goes AWOL and kind of takes the USO shield. And he’s kind of allowed to be this soldier and they outfit him with the new uniform. They decide to outfit him with an updated shield.”
