Kevin Fiege Talks <i>Captain America</i>'s Shield And Developing The Costume!

Conducted while filming for Captain America: The First Avenger was underway, Marvel producer Kevin Fiege greatly discussed the Avenger's cstume among other things!



In a recent issue of UK's Total Film Magazine, several details and interviews from the Brits' set visit of Marvel and Joe Johnston's much-anticipated Captain America: The First Avenger film are revealed. And one of those many interviews conducted was with Kevin Feige, head honcho of Marvel Studios, in which he speaks on the first avenger's mighty shield.


"We didn't want to reinvent it, just make it worthy of being in the movie," Kevin Feige says regarding Cap's mighty shield. "People expect us to take something that's in the comics and give it a little more texture & detail."

"The costume was in the works for a long, long time," says Fiege. "We knew that in the period setting we wanted to have something with the silhouette of the superhero costume, but wasn't made out of foam latex or CG. It had to look modern and heroic, but also of the period. So the straps, the material, all make it so that he doesn't stand out too much walking around a battlefield next to other soldiers."



Captain America: The First Avenger focuses on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes and Peggy Carter to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull. Starring Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Samuel L. Jackson, Stanley Tucci and Hugo Weaving, the film releases July 22, 2011.
