Captain America's Costume Design on the Upcoming the First Avenger Movie

Just saw the trailer of Captain America: The First Avenger 2011 movie. I couldn't quite see the new costume for the hero so I looked for a clear image and stumbled upon the image above. Chris Evans in his full Captain America uniform. When compared to the 1990 classic Captain America look which Matt Salinger plays the iconic hero, its strikingly different.

They designed the new Captain America costume maybe too realistic. The movie's setting is in 1942 so I guess if you look at it, it seems appropriate for that time. Captain America is a soldier after all.

His mask is like a soldier's helmet, and his pants is from an airman’s jumpsuit. The wings are just painted on his helmet and the star is smaller. If you look at it at a certain point of view, you can actually imagine it being part of G.I. Joe. But if you don't like the costume, don't be too disappointed. They say that the costume will most likely be upgraded or changed in the most awaited The Avengers movie. 

Now how about the Red Skull? They made simpler and it works for me. 

Captain America: The First Avenger will be released July 22nd starring Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, Hugo Weaving as Red Skull, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter and Samuel L. Jackson as Nicky Fury.
1942, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) deemed unfit for military service, he volunteers for a top secret research project that turns him into Captain America, a superhero dedicated to defending America's ideals. - IMDB

Fury was making a reference to the monkeys in 'The Wizard of Oz'. It was released before Rogers got frozen, so he knew what Fury was talking about. Since he'd been out of the loop for 50 years there was a lot of stuff he didn't understand, so he was really excited that he got that one.
