We're still more than a year away from the big screen adaptation of Captain America, but today we get our first look at how the first Avenger will look on celluloid and, eventually, in the Sega-published video game.
Ain't It Cool News gives us our first glimpse at Steve Rogers in full Cap gear, a conceptual costume design that doesn't stray too far from the Ultimates version of the character, for better than worse. Chris Evans, better known as the Human Torch from Marvel's Fantastic Four movies, will be donning the stars, stripes and vibranium shield for the 2011 film, battling the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) and Arnim Zola (Toby Jones) for patriotic purposes.
It's been more than three years since Sega signed on to create games based on Captain America, Thor and the Hulk, during which time two middling Iron Man games and a so-so version of The Incredible Hulk were released. Let's hope Sega, which has undergone some unfortunate changes since then, will be able to do justice to Mr. America here.
Captain America: The First Avenger is slated for a release in July 2011.
