    yes its nice if he had wings. but its not that bad if he doesnt. Plus for all we know they could very well do the whole painted on wings deal for his later suit, and also he could have wings on the uso/kirby suit.

    The helmet looks butt naked without wings.

    So wings there must be.

    My thoughts on the subject of wings.....I want to see the wings and I think protruding wings could work if they were small, sleek and metallic. BUT, I always figured that if ever there were a bigscreen adaptation that the wings would be the first thing to go. This thought was solidified the first time I laid eyes on Ultimate Cap.(although I'll give Ultimate Cap 1 thing....give the modern suit from Ultimates Vol 1 some wings and turn the gray patches blue and you have a NOTE PERFECT movie Cap suit, but I digress). For some reason the wings are just one of those details that non-fan movie producers will zero in on as too "corny" or "comic-booky" for the general audience. I guess I can see where they're coming from, though I disagree. My real question on this is : while I disagree, I can UNDERSTAND the producers/crew viewing tiny wings sticking out from Cap's head as "corny" or "too much", but then......why not AT LEAST give him painted on wings?!? It's the "best of both worlds" solution....he doesn't have actual protruding wings, so their concerns about "corniness" or whatever are eased, and he still has the classic Cap look of the wings..... it looks pretty damn good in this manip by RIV......

    I pasted the wings from the above manip onto the Cap concept art to see how it looks.....

    .....bottom line : if they don't wanna use real wings, fine. But, what reason could there be for not using painted on wings? After all, they didn't get rid of the "A".

    I wouldn't mind if the wings aren't since it will look ridiculous although that manip with the painted on wings doesn't look bad at all.

    Yes for me 2.
    although i think it is difficult to make them look cool on a helmet.
    So I guess on a helmet i can get used to "painted" wings, it still is better than no wings.
    and on a mask actual wings.

    I used to think the wings protruding from the mask thing was incredibly silly until I saw manips like these that used the wings in a really ingenius way. Here you can see not only the attention to detail neccessary for a Marvel film but also something that looks similar to the military stripes usually seen on soldier's arms to denote rank. Pure genius.

    It's ideas like that that make me want to see the wings in the film.

    Yes because it's part of the classic design. They should be there somehow.

    I'd love to see the wings, but am not really hopeful. There are certainly ways to incorporate them without making them seem garish or ridiculous and even add to the costume's allure. Unfortunately, I can easily see the studio doing without.

    The wings look okay painted on in the first manip... but look like reed richards temples in the second:hehe:

    I think that they need to be bolder/ballsier and less delicate looking to work on film. Metal or embossed would be nice... or painted on BOLD and stylized... not like say the Philly Eagles helmet.

    The thing is people... we will get the wings... on the USO costume (sorry to twist the knife Kurosawa) ;)

    The painted wings are better than nothing & work well in those pictures.

    Painted-on wings would've been a nice touch. The helmet itself looks fine but it does seem like it's missing something.

    I've seen like 10 different versions of the painted wings in the Cap costume thread and each one makes the concept art look so much better IMO. So wings FTW.

    marvel has come this far you got thors,loki's and odins helmets,and capes, iron mans armor a cg hulk i say why settle for painted on wings, go for the little white ones. its part of the costume, it wont look cheesy or weird. people have seen cap and know what he looks like.
