Captain America Update: Concept Art Costume Revealed

What was teased the last time finally gets an image, and via Aint It Cool and Marvelousnews, here is the look of the costume Chris Evans will don to turn into the Super Soldier American hero of World War II - Captain America!Funny... No wingtips and a more modern appearance. It's Ultimate Cap! Yes, the costume from The Ultimates is being used, and while it makes sense because Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury is based from that time, I'm not too happy with the choice. Heck, Thor is using his modern outfit from the regular Marvel Continuity, and Iron Man is practically the same with his Extremis-like look, so why is Cap not wearing his old wingtips? Honestly, I can live with this, but I really wish they used the iconic Earth -616 appearance we all know and love from the comics. In fact, the very pose you see above with Cap running with his shield is the exact same one the Cap we know does, as drawn in Captain America #1 by series regular Steve Epting!Check it out and see the similarities!

The other images are also drawn from other classic Marvel covers featuring Cap, done by Jim Lee if I'm not mistaken! So, do you approve of the movie costume? Check out more images and details via AICN or Marvelousnews.

Captain America: The First Avenger is due in theaters on July 22, 2011!
