This new poster for Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger showcases a dark, brooding side to the sentinel of liberty. But then the first official high-res shot of him in his full costume looks bright and cheerful, as you'd expect from the optimistic hero of the Greatest Generation.

I'm pleasantly surprised to see they managed to make Captain America's costume look realistic and functional.

I mean, Iron Man, despite the high-tech concept, is easy to translate realistically to a movie - we're already seeing real-life mechas and surprising technological evolutions, so the suit itself, as long as it was well-designed, would be somewhat believable. Thor and Cap, on the other hand, were harder. Thor is a God with a very comic-looking costume, and Cap is a walking flag - still, both have been very well translated to movie. Marvel Studios is doing a great job, at least in the costume department - though I'm also yet to see a bad movie from them. Unlike most people, I loved Iron Man 2.
