Chris Evans as Cpt. America!

Straight out of Entertainment Weekly comes this semi-official shot of Chris Evans as Captain America: The First Avenger.

You might remember Evans as the Human Torch in  what can only be described as cinematic abortions - The Fantastic Four movies. He easily was the best fit for that role as the charismatic-but-reckless Torch, it's just too bad the film surrounding that character were so awful.

Thankfully, those movies have been swept under the rug and dubbed "non-canon"  since Marvel studios started to acquire the assets and licenses to do their own characters justice. The suit looks pretty amazing for the WWII-era superhero film, but I could do without the tiny cherub wings over the ear - they look a bit tramp-stampy.


Look forward to seeing how America and the suit will evolve over his movie and into the Avengers-era.

For a bonus, here is some studio concept art of what Hugo Weaving will look like as the Capt. America bad guy and Nazi, the Red Skull.

The movie is released on July 22nd, 2011.
