Newish look: Chris Evans as Captain America


This grainy scan from tomorrow’s EW is running around the internet. We smell something, and it smells like THE ROCKETEER.


  1. Fine with me…I actually like THE ROCKETEER.

  2. I was going to say the same thing — is the Rocketeer reference meant to be a good thing or bad?

    I, too, liked the Rocketeer, though it certainly wasn’t a trailblazer in filmmaking.

  3. Dave Miller-lad says:

    Hmmmm, next time, hit the descreen button when scanning, dude.

  4. Hannibal says:

    The Rocketeer was a small gem, the best film Joe Johnston ever made and probably why he got the Cap gig. Unfortunately, to my mind, he is a journeyman director, not someone who can make an audience really sit up and take notice. All of his films are just…okay-ish.

  5. I dunno … I think Matt Salinger looked fine as Captain America. Better than Chris Evans’ get-up.

  6. If it smells like The Rocketeer, then I want a seat at the table!

  7. Dan DeLaet says:

    Yeah the rocketeer was not bad, might make Cap better who knows.

  8. The wings are painted on his helmet? What the hell is that all about? Next thing you know, they’ll start putting nipples on batsuits!!
