Chris Evans bears stars and stripes in best “Captain America” image to date


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Marvel has posted seven new Captain America photos and two new Thor shots to its Web site in preparation for the one-two punch of superhero origin stories that we’re expecting to get this summer.

In the process, we get the best look at Chris Evans in his Captain America suit (which we’ve posted below).

Both projects come across as risks. Most superhero stories go out of their way to connect the origin story to our modern time. Spider-Man is a New York teenager. The X-Men fight out of their home base in Upstate New York. Even Superman left his home planet for a good old fashioned Midwestern upbringing.

Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor,” on the other hand, has to introduce an otherworldly god (played by Chris Hemsworth) before transporting this powerful being to our planet. And Joe Johnston’s “Cap,” meanwhile, will be set in the past, introducing the Marvel hero as the World War II fighter that he was.

How important are these details? Will audiences mind if key elements are altered? So far, it looks like both Branagh and Johnston are walking along the right path, honoring Marvel’s roots while creating entertainment that will appeal to the masses.

Check out the new photos on Marvel.com, and prepare for “Thor” and Captain America,” which will open on May 6 and July 22, respectively.
