First Look at Chris Evans in Costume as <em>Captain America</em>!

This weeks Entertainment Weekly gives us our much anticipated first look at Chris Evans in costume (sans helmet) as Captain America.

People everywhere have not only been wondering when the promotional campaign for Captain America:The First Avenger would ramp up but also, when we would be getting our first glimpse of Chris Evans in the famous red, white and blue outfit. Well, Entertainment Weekly has answered both questions. As you can see to the left is this weeks cover of the magazine and it looks pretty good IMO.

What follows is just a portion of what E.W. gathered during their visit of the London based Captain America set.

Chris Evans recalls his hesitation about taking the part..

"At the time, I remember telling a buddy of mine, ‘If the movie bombs, I’m f—-ed. If the movie hits, I’m f—-ed!’”

“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.’”

Evans now claims to have no regrets about signing a six picture deal with Marvel.

“I can’t believe I was almost too chicken to play Captain America.”

Director Joe Johnston had this to say about the film.

“The interesting thing about this character is that he’s an everyman who in the course of a few minutes become a perfect human specimen. That has to create some interesting personal issues. I saw it as an opportunity to make a superhero movie that felt real, that didn’t have to rely on an overabundance of fantasy elements.”

Be sure to pick up this weeks edition of Entertainment Weekly for much more from the set of Captain America: The First Avenger.
