So here's the old Captain America.  

  So here is the new look for the Captain America movie. I say it's not too bad, more  realistic like. What do you guys think?
 

I've never seen the gun though...but hey his overall look is more serious.
 

 
 And this is the new look. Notice the leather. Boots, the fun. Straps. The scales are gone. No
 And this is the new look. Notice the leather. Boots, the fun. Straps. The scales are gone. No "A" or wings on his head. His look fits the new decades for the movie, and I don't think die hard fans will be too angry about it.

I think they did the right thing keeping him in an era where he makes more sense.

Everything about this film looks fantastic apart from the most crucial part: The director. The last film he did was The Wolfman and that was real bad.

Not a totally new design, it's based heavily on the costume he's worn several times in the comics during the WW2 era, which is when the movie takes place, so it makes sense.
It'll be interesting to see what they do with it for the Avengers movie.

I think their thought is a hero like this couldn't exist in modern day so he's frozen, and comes out representing an ideology from a bygone era which would better contrast with Stark's cynicism therebye setting up the civil war at some point 5 movies away. A good director could pull it off maybe. But superhero (of the superpower variety) movies are innately corny no matter what. You can't make Captain America not corny.

I've actually never been a fan of Captain America, but this movie might change that. Those images looks so badass and awesome, also I wouldn't really call his current design a new look, it looks almost the same has his previous one with some slight alterations to it.

He has an American Flag Shield.  I am actually fasicnated as to what you thought his name was before this, since he is pretty much common knowlegde here in the states.   I really can't divorce myself from my knowlegde of the name Captain America.  So in other words, what did you think when you saw captain America imagery.

Chris Evans is playing Cap. The same guy who played Johnny Storm/Human Torch in the Fantastic Four movies. Also, it's Steve Rodgers.

No your thinking of Ryan Reynolds who is playing the Green Lantern. Chis Evans is playing Captain America and is the guy who played Johnny Storm in The Fantastic Four.

I'm not a troll; I'm not saying "Wait; you've never heard of Captain America before" in a rude, condescending way; I'm just somewhat surprised. Ahmad and I get along fine; we follow each other, we agree with each other's opinions, etc. Before you make another comment like that, why don't you actually try to get to know the community better and study the interactions between users more? Not trolling against you, either; it's just advice.

That's not the way he looked in WWII.  He's always had, for the most part, the same costume throughout the years.  Now that they've got Steve Rogers over on Secret Avengers and Bucky under the helm for Captain America, they've done a little revamping on suits.  Otherwise, they've pretty much remained the same. 
 
Personally, I think the look of Captain America for the movie is practical, grounded in a better form of reality, but overall, I'm worried about how that suit will translate into film. 
 
Moreover, I'm worried about the movie being directed by Joe Johnston.  The dood definitely has an affinity for older periods (he also directed The Rocketeer, which was a movie that got butchered by the studio's involvement).  Sadly, he's also directed Jurassic Park III and The Wolfman, both of which are less than spectacular films (might even go so far as to say The Wolfman was fucking terrible). 
 
I never want a movie to be bad, especially when it's an icon like Cap.  However, between Joe Johnston directing (who never has the balls to stand up to studio involvement) and Chris Evans as Cap (who already isn't that great of an actor)...then mix in how muddled and oversaturated the Marvel movie landscape is becoming with this "Avengers Movie Initiative"...  It just seems like this movie, as well as Thor, could be destined for some form of disaster. 
 
While we're on this subject of Avengers flicks, I'm becoming less and less ecstatic for Thor.  I think this Chris Heminwhatever looks good as Thor, but Kenneth Branaugh was in Wild Wild West, folks.  He did direct an amazing piece of work with Hamlet, but man...I just don't know how I feel. 
 
We'll wait for trailers, I guess.  With Comic-Con this week, I'm sure at least some Thor footage will leak out.

I think Cap's popular and all but nowhere near the universal recongnation of  a character such a Superman or even the Hulk. 
 

I think it looks great, much better than Thor and Green Lantern (Maybe need to see more screenshots)

Cap's popularity is to Marvel what Superman and Batman are to DC.  He's the single most popular character in the Marvel Universe.  He's so popular that when Brubaker had the balls to kill Steve Rogers, fans protested like crazy and Joe Q had no choice but to go back on his "dead is dead" statement. 
 
As for Thor and Green Lantern, I think they both look great for being movie adaptations of those characters.  I don't understand why people are complaining so much about the costumes for those two...well, minus the whole "Thor needs to have a helmet" thing.

I'd have to respectfully disagree, I see Spiderman, the Hulk, and even Wolverine above Captain America in popularity, or at least it was when I was a kid maybe times have a changed. Not that I don't think he's not a better character than those though.
