‘Avengers 2′ Round-Up: Set Video & Images Reveal New Captain America Costume

Published 6 months ago by , Updated April 9th, 2014 at 12:12 pm,

Marvel’s Phase 2 sequence of inter-connected blockbusters continues with the imminent release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the upcoming launch of Guardians of the Galaxy, with the Phase completing with the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron in May of 2015.

Joss Whedon’s sequel to The Avengers is now shooting in various locations around the world. We’ve seen set images and video from the film’s South Africa set, our first look at Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) in action alongside new additions Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), and now we have an extended look at Captain America’s costume for the film.

CBM has uncovered a three-and-a-half minute video shot by fans in various locations around Seoul, South Korea, where the current leg of filming is underway.

The set video tracks the film’s crew as they shoot a Captain America stunt sequence in multiple locations around Seoul, which includes the takeover of one entire section of what may be Seoul’s famous Banpo Bridge. Cap jumps down from a moving semi truck and hangs from the door of the trailer.

Cap’s costume appears to be a star-spangled throwback to his outfit in The Avengersas well as the one he dons again later in Captain America: The Winter Soldier after wearing the blue and silver S.H.I.E.L.D. stealth uniform. The new suit’s most noticeable change is the addition of armor-like shoulder-pads, and echoes the look of his original World War II uniform in Captain America: The First Avenger.

There is a potential Easter Egg at the very end of this video as well: a close-up of the truck used on the bridge, which appears to belong to a company called “U-Gin,” with the words “Genetics Infinite, R&D” below the brand name. This is pure speculation, but could this company have something to do with Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch? Since they cannot be called “mutants” in this big-screen incarnation of the characters, might there be some other explanation for their powers? Genetic tampering, perhaps?

As for Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner spoke to Variety about his expanded role in Age of Ultron, saying “I can’t give you any details, but yeah, there seems to be more to do this time. I’m excited about that.”  Renner also talked about his own costume’s evolution, saying:

“It all shifts. Even from ‘Captain America’ to ‘Avengers,’ they worked their way through looking great and functioning great. I have one of the easiest costumes compared to the other guys, Chris Evans being one of the [harder ones]. The cowl on his head, any time you put it on, the thing gave him a migraine. It hit weird pressure points. But you have to work out the details to have it look great and function great. I feel like my costume might be changing a little bit for this ‘Avengers.’ Who knows, man? As long as the pants don’t split in the crotch, I’m alright.”

As for whether or not this actually happened, Renner elaborated: “I think it’s happened to all of us. You’re like, ‘Ok, we’ve got to take a break. I’ve got a hole where it shouldn’t be.’”

Renner also spoke about the pressure he felt when offered the role of Hawkeye and the daunting scale of his expected involvement:

“You know where that leads you, the amount of time and commitment. You start to step into franchise-land and superhero land. It’s kind of terrifying when you’re an actor. It’s a huge commitment. But I’m glad I did it. All the actors are so awesome, I love them. That’s the main reason I want to keep going back. We all go through the same trials together. We’re definitely a ‘Bad News Bears’ team.”

Chris Evans expressed a similar outlook to the Toronto Sun (via CBM) about the role of Steve Rogers/Captain America, and how his past experience with a different superhero franchise colored his initial reaction to the offer:

“The ‘Fantastic Four’ had a lot to do with my concerns about playing Captain America. Those ‘Fantastic Four’ movies… how do you say this correctly? This is where interviews get tricky. If you’re going to get locked up in a long-term contract, you’ve got to make sure the movies you’re making are movies you’ll be proud of. With a lot of movies I’ve made, I’ve had something to question. And the ‘Fantastic Four’ was a three-movie deal (though only two were ever made). ‘Captain America’ was a six-picture contract (counting three ‘Avengers’ movies). And Robert Downey Jr. had already set the tone with the ‘Iron Man’ movies, there already was a following. So those six movies were for real.”

As for the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, directed by Chronicle’s Josh Trank and starring Michael B. Jordan in the role previously played by Evans, the actor said: “I think it’s great that they’re picking it up again. There’s a lot more story to tell. And I think Michael B. Jordan is just a phenomenal actor.”

Evans asserted that, despite the amazing level of work and time commitment required for the role, he wouldn’t have it any other way:

“Had I not done these movies, it would have been the biggest mistake of my life, my biggest regret – and there are plenty. In retrospect, Marvel has been a beautiful element in my life, affording me the opportunity to do such things.”

Chris Evans may be ready to leave the Marvel Universe after three more films, but with Age of Ultron shooting, expect more of these glimpses of the sets from around the world, not to mention the arrival of The Winter Solder in U.S. theaters in less than a week.

What do you think of this glimpse of Cap in action, Screen Ranters? Sound off in the comments below!

  1. HOT

  2. Like the stranger perk from Fallout 3? Might as well give Bucky a trench coat and fedora to wear while he is secretly killing every bad guy that creeps up behind Cap.

    • well he went 60 years without being seen… it isnt that crazy

      • SPOILERS!!!!!!

        True, he was trained for stuff like this, but you also have to remember that he was put into suspended animation for most of that time.

        Still, with SHIELD gone it would be even easier for him to hide.

    • +1000
      Hahaha

  3. Looks ok I guess, but his costume in the first movie was perfect, why bother changing it?

    • 1) Merchandise
      2) Wearability
      3) Realistic evolution of design and textile fibres in actual military uniforms
      4) Merchandise

      • I’d argue on 1 and 4. If they change the design of the suit or not isn’t gonna change how many action figures they make or how many lunchboxes they slap Cap’s face on. Look at the first two Raimi Spiderman movies, or the first two X-Men. Almost no significant costume changes between movies. Did they go “oh, well, guess it’d be silly to make another action figure of him”? Of course not. They just make a new sculpt of it, and people STILL buy it.
        They’ll merchandise the bejeesus out of no matter what he’s wearing.

  4. Though blurry the suit looks pretty great. I didn’t have a problem with the avengers suit. I actually thought it looked pretty great. But I love the stealth suit from TWS. I haven’t seen the film yet. (Going to the IMAX midnight premiere on Thursday) but from what I’ve seen of that suit it’s my favorite of his so far.

    I can’t wait to see thors new suit.
    Hopefully they keep him sleeveless in this one.

    • Literally the only problem with the Avengers suit was the helmet. Whenever he didn’t have it on it looked awesome.

  5. “In retrospect, Marvel has been a beautiful element in my life….” Chris Evans.

    Heheh. Key word; retrospect. Talk about obvious back tracking.

    Feige and the other suits at Marvel must have given Evans a lashing when Chris offered his TRUE feelings and initial remarks;

    “They called back and they tweaked the deal. It went from nine [films] to six. I said no again. My family was even going, ‘Are you sure you’re making the right decisions?’” Chris Evans.

    The irony is that Mr Evans’ latest back pedaling only looks like blatant back pedaling.

    • Tell me you haven’t had a job that you were glad to have and thankful for all it taught you and the experiences it brought. Doesn’t mean you want to work there forever. Actors have that luxury of jumping from project to project. So do some folks as well in their lives and careers. I wouldn’t call it back peddling. Both statements can be true. If he wanted a long term deal we would see him on television and not the big screen. Just my humble opinion.

    • I don’t see how the two comments contradict each other. It could have only been one film and he’d still have said Marvel was a beautiful element in his life. Why? Because he was part of bringing a comic character into the modern mainstream. People regularly comment that his acting is one of the best in the MCU films, or of his career. He can say he’s ready to leave, but that doesn’t mean he can’t admit he had a good run.

    • I love how people on the internet can take a couple off-the-cuff remarks made by a guy and then you suddenly know every thing that’s going on in his head.

      Welcome to the internet, right?

  6. Nice!!!!!

  7. “That’s awesome. He’s on a truck. And the truck is moving. Go Captain, go.”

  8. It almost looks like a direct modernization of the first film’s outfit unlike the first avengers outfit which traded military gear for a tighter spadex looking outfit.

    Can’t wait to see what Thor and Black Widow will be wearing.

  9. Nice to see they are incorporating Captain America’s current look in the comics as seen in the All-New Marvel.Now era. If don’t read comics/haven’t picked up a comic in the last 2 years then this new design might look foreign to you. But the fanboy in me is happy to see they ditched the figure-skating spandex from the first Avengers movie.

  10. BTW, Cap 2 is AWESOME!!!

    I wont spoil anything but I just want to say: damn those insiders!!
    Even the mid credits scene is 100% accurate.

  11. Chris Evans has said he won’t be doing any acting unless it is under a Marvel contract. He wants to direct. He said that his best chance to direct is while he is under a Disney/Marvel contract. Personally, I’d like for Chris Evans to continue playing Cap after his current contract expires. Maybe he and Marvel can work out another contract where he gets an acting and directing contract, win-win.

  12. Just came from watching the new Capt America Movie, and it was just awesome, the best movie so far, it shows why Capt is the man, going to watch it again when it comes out on the theater.

    sneak preview for the military

  13. Some people simply have no tact when they speak…

  14. Did I just see something on a video clip that said Avengers #2: Age of Ultron, will be subtitled, “Infinity’s Wrath”?

  15. I’m always amused when you can tell that someone went to the Star Trek school of video narration. “He’s putting his helmet on, Captain”.

  16. I think some people need to apply some common sense. If you want to keep away from spoilers, stay out of the internet, The movie was too amazing for people to keep their mouth shut.

    • So we have to have to movie spoiled for us because you didn’t have the basic self-control to blurt out important movie plot points. Wow, you’re selfish.

      • And you’re being ridiculous and somewhat hypocritical. If you don’t want spoilers, what the hell are you doing on ScreenRant in the first place?

  17. When they kill off Steve in Captain America 3 or Avengers 3, and Stan takes over, I can’t wait for the conclusion of this multimovie spanning storyline in Captain America 6 in 2022

  18. Haha. All he said was Jordan was a phenomenal actor, not whether he’d be right for the Torch.

  19. Did anyone notice that was Sebastian Stan in the costume, not Evans?

    • Nevermind im stupid.

  20. Damn! I wish they’d kept his less american-centric suit from CA:TWS, especially when the team is going more transnational.

  21. is it me or those stunt doubles look JUST like Chris Evans with the mask on..

  22. Looks good. I like the Avengers emblem on the shoulders, and the stripes on the stomach were always my favorite part of the uniform.
