The first full trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger has bish bash boshed onto the internet. Look at how tiny Chris Evans as Steve Rogers is!
There isn’t much new to see costume wise that has not already been revealed in papped set photographs. Mostly U.S. Army uniforms with overseas hats and other quiet 1940s period touches, such as khakis, 3pc suits, leather flight jackets and fire engine red lipstick on Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). Costume design is a joint effort between Inception’s Jeffrey Kurland and twice Oscar nominated Anna B. Sheppard.
It certainly looks exciting enough, but then again virtually all trailers for big budget comic book adaptations do. The proof, plus just how CGI small we are willing to accept pre-CA Chris Evans, is revealed on 22nd July in ‘glorious’ 3D. However, we doubt this is the last you will see of The First Avenger until then.
