Talking with MTV News, actor Chris Evans says don’t expect to see him in his final “Captain America” costume until near the end of the upcoming film.
“There’s a couple stages [of the suit]. Initially in the script, Steve [Rogers] isn’t Captain America right away. He gets the injection and isn’t asked to go to war right off the bat, he’s used in different areas and different facets. So he has a couple different stages of the suit. I don’t think he jumps in the final suit until the third act of the film” says Evans.
Evans added that the shield as well will be upgraded through the film – “During the USO tour, there’s obviously a different shield. He goes on a couple missions, goes AWOL, and takes the USO shield. Once he’s allowed to be this soldier and they outfit him with a new uniform, they decide to outfit him with an updated shield.”
