[UPDATE: Check out more new Captain America images!]
As we anxiously approach Super Bowl weekend and the unveiling of the first trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger, we spend our time excitedly examining the little details of the photos released from the film so far.
We’ve now seen what Chris Evans looks like as Steve Rogers after being subject to the Super-Soldier serum and what he looks like in full Captain America gear. We’ve also seen plenty of location shots and 1940s era vehicles, but fans still eagerly await the official unveiling of Hugo Weaving in costume and make-up as the villainous Red Skull.
Back in October the first major reveal of Chris Evans as Captain America came with the cover image on an issue of Entertainment Weekly and today a newer cover image from Empire which also reveals him in a similar stance, this time much more confident, and again sporting his iconic patriotic colors as the star-spangled Avenger, along with another image, albiet much smaller, of him from a still taken from the film.
UPDATE: Check a gallery of Captain America images from Empire‘s new issue!
You can see more images of Hugo Weaving and Hydra Soldiers over at the Marvel Movies Facebook Page.
With a fully formed idea now of what Evans looks like while in his army duds (and in action), all we have to go on for Hugo Weaving (post-transformation) is the low-quality Captain America Halloween movie tie-in costume images. These include the costume and a Red Skull mask which resemble concept art we previously reported on for the film.
We’re loving the costume designs and set pieces thus far, and this has helped place Captain America: The First Avenger into the top spot on our 20 most anticipated movies of 2011. We can’t wait meet the rest of the cast and see them in live-action!
