First Official Photo of Chris Evans Suited Up as Captain America
We've featured some official concept art and various photos of a stuntman in full costume have shown up online thanks to the London shoot of Captain America: The First Avenger. However, today we finally have our first official look at Chris Evans dressed in the red, white and blue. Though he's not wearing the mask, the full cover (below) gets me pumped to see this next summer. Evans recalls how he almost didn't take the role: "I was just scared. I realized my whole decision making process was fear based, and you never want to make a decision out of fear. I can't believe was almost too chicken to play Captain America."
Here's our first official look at Chris Evans as Captain America courtesy of the latest Entertainment Weekly:
Captain America: The First Avenger is being directed by Joe Johnston, most recently of The Wolfman, and is already shooting mostly in Europe. The film takes place during WWII and will follow Cap's escapades on the European battlefronts, including encountering a diabolical scientist Arnim Zola (played by Toby Jones) and an evil villain named Red Skull (played by Hugo Weaving). Also in the cast: Hayley Atwell as Cap's love interest Peggy Carter, Sebastian Stan as Cap's sidekick Bucky Barnes, Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, and Tommy Lee Jones as General Chester Phillips.
