EXCLUSIVE: Final Captain America Costume Design Revealed!

Pictures taken at the recent Consumer Electronics Show reveal a new addition to Cap's costume and a little more red, while we also have plenty of details about the merchandise Marvel are planning on releasing to tie-in to the movie...

By Josh Wilding - 1/7/2011
When Marvel released a piece of artwork featuring Captain America wielding a gun during last years Comic Con, there was some concern amongst fans that the character would be based a little more on the Ultimate version rather than the classic 616 universe. Since then we've seen a stuntman with the holster as well as an action figure, but as the following photos show, Marvel are clearly using that leaked concept art from a while back on the upcoming products which will tie into the movie...you'll notice however that they've made one final adjustment to the suit as you'll see on Cap's right leg.







Not Earth shattering to some of you I know, but this is the first time we've seen official pictures of his costume with the new addition of a holster and a belt/boots that are more red than brown. In my opinion, it's pretty damned cool. Captain Australia (who provided us with those photos and the following information) also went on to tell me that as well as this digital camera, Marvel literally had dozens of Captain America: The First Avenger themed products they were promoting including iPad and iPhone covers. And thanks to a tip from my good friend RealIrOnMaN of spidermedia.ru we have some pictures of the latter.



Is it me, or are those wings slightly different to the ones we've seen in the past? Anyway, thanks again to CaptainAustralia for sharing these images with us. If you have anything like this that you want to share with us at CBM, then click on the "Contact Me" link at the top left hand side of this page! Captain America: The First Avenger is set to be released in 3D on July 22, later this year!

sweet deal
Skeletor - 1/7/2011, 3:19 PM
Who cares if the costume is close to Ultimate. It looks way more plausible than 616.
AlexdoxA - 1/7/2011, 3:20 PM
Sweet!! This movie is going to rock!!! I can't wait anymore

I just want to see an actual photo of Evens in that costume, not those highly cgi mockups.

Guys since its a toy, it has been p/shopped a lot.

ElBicho - 1/7/2011, 3:28 PM
Nice work Josh!

EmeraldFantasy - 1/7/2011, 3:29 PM
Where in the world can I get a hold of that shield cell phone cover?? I would LOVE to get that for my husband!
vanillabear - 1/7/2011, 3:31 PM
Great find man
so whats the deal with the wings are they actually using them?
LFANCH - 1/7/2011, 3:32 PM
I'm hoping the gun is going to be for looks only. It's kind of necissary for it to be there (a soldier without a gun isn't bery realistic)
JoshWilding - 1/7/2011, 3:40 PM
Thanks guys. :) I too think that these are a few very cool additions to the costume, despite how minor they are.
LastCall - 1/7/2011, 3:41 PM
Wings. The way it should be. As american as iPhones and Facebook.
DoctorAlgernopKrieger - 1/7/2011, 3:49 PM
I'm liking this it's really cool, just wish the gloves and the boots were red.

@ Hamm3rtym3 - Oh he called you out!

Nice!
MisterJay - 1/7/2011, 3:55 PM
love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/7/2011, 3:59 PM
Looks great!!:) I cant wait to see this in the big screen!

I hope Red Skull makes return in The Avengers!!:D It would be great to see him and members of Hydra (Madame Hydra and Baron Strucker maybe) clash with Cap, Iron Man, Thor, Hawkeye, Nick Fury and Black Widow with the powers of cosmic cube!
It would be cool to see him hypnotize Hulk against The Avengers too!:)

Think about it people?! Hugo Weaving VS. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson?!
If thats not epic?... I dont know what is?
JoshWilding - 1/7/2011, 4:00 PM
Here's a closer look at the slightly reddish tint the boots now seem to have...

TurdFergunson - 1/7/2011, 4:01 PM
come on now! like everyone here was gonna agree to it. I think it looks good. this movie is gonna own. Cap has always been my fav avenger.
BIGBMH - 1/7/2011, 4:05 PM
I guess everyone can officially stop b!+ching about the wings now.
KidGoku - 1/7/2011, 4:05 PM
Great find like always Josh! Now all I need to see is Red Skull and I'm good!
fanboy76 - 1/7/2011, 4:11 PM
you know technically speaking the marketing company could have added that red to the image purely for advetising to make the image pop more. They do stuff like that all the time.
LEEE777 - 1/7/2011, 4:16 PM
JOKER13 @ Wheres JMAN??? : P

Nice pic, better have painted wings and it might look a little like Ultimate Cap but its the real 616 Steve Rogers, cool find!

Captain Australia lol.
WHATTHEFA - 1/7/2011, 4:32 PM

dailycomicsfix - 1/7/2011, 6:23 PM
Why is the classic Captain America referred to as 616?
GUNSMITH - 1/7/2011, 6:51 PM
