Marvel Superheroes Revealed

Today was a big day for upcoming Marvel Comics movies!

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we got our first glimpse of Chris Evans (The Fantastic Four, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) in-costume for his starring role in Captain America: The First Avenger set to drop later this year.  I really like the realistic design of this superhero suit.  I mean, this looks like something you could actually wear while punching out Nazis.  The wings painted on the side of the helmet are a nice, subtle touch.  Any guesses if the Snake-Eyes clones there in back are friend or foe?

Meanwhile, Sony Pictures released the first official photo of a rather torn-up Andrew Garfield (The Social Network, Never Let Me Go), as your friendly neighborhood wall crawler in the reboot of Spider-Man due in 2012. While many people aren’t too keen on the reboot, we can at least see that the costume is spot-on.  And are those web shooters on the inside of his wrist?

What do you guys think?  Do you like the new costumes?  Are you looking forward to the movies?

  1. I'm pretty irked that they have Chris Evans (who i dont have to mention was ALREADY Human Torch/Johnny Storm) play The Cap. I mean, Captain was a big (I mean BIG) kinda guy, with short blonde hair, plus he seems like he would be a bit older then Chris could Portray.
    Still, Marvel does an amazing job at casting for their characters (especially Iron Man, Nick Fury, Edward Norton's Hulk, and even the new Spidey up there) so i'll keep an open mind on the movie overall.

    • it shouldnt look like kevlar though. Spider-man made his original costume by hand (read the comics) and its pretty hard to make kevlar by hand.
      Also, it was set in the 60s. I dont think kevlar was around back then, or at least not common.

      • thats the whole point… peter parker was a scrawny nerdy dude. they wouldnt cast the big show or hulk hogan (the only big guys i could think of) as spiderman now would they?

  2. idiotic costumes ridiculous casting choices.
    why on earth do they have to reboot over and over and….
    and……………….. over again.
    WTF. Cant's they find anyone who knows how to write.

      • What history exactly?
        Throughout the comic's over the past decade there have been so many different story arc's throughout the entire Marvel Universe that there is no original story. The lives of Peter Parker & Steve Rogers have been told through the eyes of so many different writers so many times that there is no possible way to get all your character development wishes right…

        Its because of this fact that I totally agree with "reboots". The Spider-Man that you grew up with isn't necesarily the same one that I did… I felt cheated that the Sony version of Spider-Man didn't have to create web-shooters, and the web just miraculously appeared from his wrist… where in the universe that I grew up with, Peter built his own shooters, and created a formula for webbing and the only suit that created its own webbing was the Symbiote.

        I can't wait for the reboot. Should be great.

        And as for Cap – any thing would be better than the 80's live action version… LOL. Although, I too am up in arms about Chris playing Torch and Cap. Just like Ryan Reynolds playing Green Lantern & Deadpool… conflict of interest much?

        • Exactly!
          Spidey tunning out of Web Fluid at the wrong time was always a suspenseful thing (What's he gonna do now?) Sony's internalizing it took away a great plot device.

          And as for Cap the 80's show was bad acting and I hated the motorcycle helmet, but in one of the two tv movies the suit was accurate except for the helmet.

    • They can find plenty of people who can write. The problem are producers who demand a safe investment by pushing multiple villains (limiting character development and hope the marketing will compensate, which it never does), younger actors (under the mistaken impression that target audiences actually give more of a shit that characters are closer to their own age rather than being well done), and plot structures that have been deemed so safe that they're sterile.

      Studios never learn. .

  3. The spiderman costume is off (due to styling I am sure) The usual red "belt" is missing, and the gloves are more stylized probably a tip to Ultimate Spiderman.

  4. Leotard Spidey. Tthats quite a Nightcrawlerish look. And he's so damn skinny I think he would snap if someone whistled at him.

    Spot on my ass.
