Continuing the Avengers posts, here’s a variation of my Captain America design for the film. Joss Whedon asked for a more superhero design compared to the WWII costume seen in Cap:the First Avenger. @ryan_meinerding_art did the awesome final design. * * * * * #captainamerica #avengers #marvel #marvelstudios #conceptart #conceptdesign #comics #comicbooks #superhero #comicbookmovies #shield #picoftheday #tbt #josswhedon #patrioticattire #chrisevans
The suit in The Avengers was quite different from the suit seen in Captain America: The First Avenger. That film’s version of the suit was more reflective of the military and World War II. Although Captain America’s role is beloved in the 2012 film, many felt that the design in the film was a bit lackluster.
