This Captain America suit is close to the comics like the one from Avengers: Endgame. While this suit was rumored to make an appearance in Civil War, it didn’t. Cap’s chainmail or “scale mail” design debuted in Captain America Comics #1 in 1940 and has generally been a feature of his design. While Chris Evans’ Captain America suit has always had a similar design to the comics, it’s always been missing the “scaley” texture of the chainmail armor design up until Avengers: Endgame.
After Avengers: Endgame, Chris Evans retired the Captain America role. In the movie, Steve Rogers passes on Captain America’s shield to his friend Sam Wilson, a.k.a. Falcon. Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will return in the upcoming Falcon and Winter Soldier Disney Plus series.
What do you think of this design for the Marvel Legends figure? Do you think Chris Evans’ Captain America should’ve had the chainmail design earlier in the MCU? Are you going to pick up this new figure? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Chris Evans’ Captain America was last seen in Avengers: Endgame. Here is the official synopsis for the movie:

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
