The classic response to the first look of a costume is to mock and deride it, especially because in the comic book world, costumes show up a lot differently on screen than they do in amateur photographs.

We caught a glimpse of a costume test for Chris Evans as Captain America back at Comic-Con, but it was ill-fitting (probably because they weren’t making custom fits for each of the possible actors).

Here, we finally get to see him in action – riding a motorcycle that I want to buy immediately, hunting down Nazis, and being chased by what appear to be the black-suited versions of what pulled young James Kirk over in Star Trek.

It’s difficult to tell honestly whether that’s Chris Evans or a stunt man. Still, you have to love the deliberate attempt to toss the black cloak over him before spy photographs are taken.

The costume looks fine for what it’s worth. It’s sort of jarring to see someone in a mask and latex/denim jumper riding a motorcycle instead of, say, flying. However, it seems like the kind of thing that would look better in motion than in the broad daylight of a shoot. Otherwise, it just looks like he’s going to go trick ‘r’ treating in a very, very expensive costume.

What do you think?
