I'm really seeing Steve Rogers/CAPTAIN AMERICA brought to life there!
To be fair, most people don't have a problem with the suit, only the helmet.

Whil it's true that the helmet draws the most criticism, I have heard may criticising the suit on the whole; the lack of anything on the back, the material quality, the white on the arms not going fully around, the zipper/s, etc.

To me, in the trailers/tv spots, it looks awesome!

I like the suit but I don't get why theres nothing on the back either. It doesn't make sense. Why omit something that didn't need to be. All he needs is a star on his back and the red and white stripes going all the way around and the suit would be perfect.

Weird isn't it? Like they only cared how he looks in front.

Man, the helmet is killing me (as is Thor's lack of same!).

Maybe he'll put his shield on his back like he does sometimes in the comics. I always thought that was a cool look.

Even having multiple issues with the way it looks doesn't mean someone detests the thing. I think it looks good but with maybe a half dozen simple changes could be greatly improved.

Rather than just putting what he has in front on the back, I think they should have just come up with something completely different. Like maybe a white eagle where the star would be.

But people don't express that, they just b!t[h about what they don't like and forge to praise all that was done right.

When I look at that gif the suit looks excellent and in combo with Chris Evans I'm seeing CAPTAIN AMERICA.

It has decreased significantly since the theatrical trailer but you do get it. I'm all over the internet (voldemort, aicn, screenrant, etc.), not just here.

Well, he looks great in that gif because he isn't wearing the dumb helmet. If he'd just pull on the cowl that's sitting on his neck like a hood it would be much cooler than the big-domed, plastic helmet thing.

The idea of making a literal translation of a superhero from a comic book to the big screen has never been realized as good as whar we are getting in the avengers. Every character looks fantastic and genuinely portrays their respective comic book versions to the letter. I hope marvel can continue nailing it with each new character introduced.

Aaaand now we're at 17 million. I guess it won't be long until the trailer gets to 20 million.

Well Cap suit just looks a bit cheap. The design is fine but it's the material in my opinion. As for the helmut or hood it's fine and again I stress it's the material.

Some of the fans over at AICN are adamant that Thor is stronger and unless he's portrayed thus in the movie it will be a fail. Whatever...I'll just settle for Thor being a badass and using Mjolnir in a cool way and doing some weather and lightning stuff. I mean, Thor can do all that AND you want him to be the strongest, too? Sheesh, just put him on God Mode already!

Oh, wait...

Thor was not portrayed as having massive strength in his own movie. Thor's strength level is on par with the Hulk and Superman and yet I never got the sense watching Thor that he had all this massive strength. I think of all the heroes Thor will be underpowered. Mjolnir was pretty much spot on though no mention that it can open portals through space/time.

Hulk isn't the strongest hero in Marvel. No where near it it. Strongest on Marvel Earth? Yea. But there is plenty of other heavyweights out in space. Take Gladiator for example. He destroys planets... by punching them.

Anyway, for the movies I think we should let Hulk have the superior strength, as it's all he's got. Thor has a variety of different powers so there should be a compromise. Doesn't mean Thor won't be super strong, but making him the strongest physically, and he has all the other powers Mjolnir grants him is overkill.

Well he's a god, what do you expect?
Unless they grant Hulk god status in the Marvel Universe, Thor is more powerful by definition.



Shockingly, I can see how a Fraction/Bandis/Hack-writers ruled 616-verse might consider GIVING Hulk god status down the line.
It makes me cry.

Man, those boots look ridiculous. Here is hope that they redesign the suit from scratch for the Cap sequel, because this one has not a single redeeming quality.
I don't get how the designer for TA got almost everything right, but completely f*** up Caps suit. I guess we can be glad they put Hawkeye in his Ultimate outfit, because if they approached the 616 costume similar to this Cap outfit, no one could take Hawkeye serious.
And I say that as a huge Hawkeye fan.
