Captain America's Suit Revealed?

Our first look at what could be the look to Captain America in the upcoming Marvel movie has leaked online and I have it here for you below. There is no official announcement by Marvel that these concept images are the official designs for "Captain America: The First Avenger" but they are the closest thing for now. Take a look for yourself below...

While I can't confirm this concept art is the real deal, it looks spectacular. The look matches what I expected. Very much like Mark Millar's The Ultimates comic. A practical and realistic take on the Captain America costume. Clearly their are some changes to the uniform (where's the wings), but overall I hope this ends up being the suit we see Cap in. I will say the costume does look very modern and not WWII era, so who knows if this will be the final suit we see Cap in for a majority of the movie. It almost looks more like what we will see Captain America wearing in "The Avengers" or in the bookend at the end of the film.

If you'll remember back from a detailed overview I did a couple months back, Captain America will in fact wear two different uniforms in the movie. One he is given to parade around the USO shows, and one he puts together himself to kick some ass once he goes AWOL. Stay tuned for more on "Captain America: The First Avenger" (Yes, Marvel flipped the title) as it breaks...
