CHRIS EVANS Talks About ‘CAPTAIN AMERICA’ Suit!

By on 28 July, 2010

This year’s Comic-Con event saw the first glimpse of Chris Evans in his Captain America costume (last Saturday evening) but this only gave us a small but vague peek as to what he will be wearing. So, MTV News managed to catch up with him to ask about the details on what the costume will be like…


Be warned, readers! There maybe some spoilers ahead…….




Evans said:

“There’s a couple stages [of the suit]. Initially in the script, Steve [Rogers] isn’t Captain America right away. He gets the injection and isn’t asked to go to war right off the bat, he’s used in different areas and different facets. So he has a couple different stages of the suit. I don’t think he jumps in the final suit until the third act of the film.”

Evans also reveals that the costume will involve some time as a USO performer, a role which inspired the look of the final costume. The different costume variations also involves a few different designs of his shield too.

He adds:

“During the USO tour, there’s obviously a different shield. He goes on a couple missions, goes AWOL, and takes the USO shield. Once he’s allowed to be this soldier and they outfit him with a new uniform, they decide to outfit him with an updated shield.”

He finishes by sharing some details about why the look and feel of the popular red, white, and blue suit was more appropriate for the 1940s setting of the film.

 “I’ve been working on another project, so there hasn’t been enough time as I would’ve liked to be in London and go through trial-by-error to make it the most comfortable thing in the world. But it’s not bad. It’s a World War II movie, so a little bit of a cumbersome feel to it and something that’s a bit chunkier not only serves the time period, but looks better — it’s not this sleek, spandex suit. It looks like something you might wear in the ’40s in the middle of a war.”
