As with many MCU heroes, Chris Evans has changed his costume as Captain America several times over the past few years. As the character’s gone from World War II to modern day, Steve Rogers has had to adjust his fashion choice to suit the times and the practicalities of whatever his latest mission is. But what’s the character’s best outfit according to the man himself?
Evans was asked this question while attending ACE Comic Con in Chicago this weekend alongside his Marvel co-stars Karen Gillan and Lee Pace. His answer will likely encourage nods from fans, too, as he went for perhaps the most widely popular variant on the Captain America costume from the movies – the one from The Winter Soldier.
“I was really partial to the Winter Soldier Cap suit. I just like that it was kind of that all-navy number. To me, it just…we called it the stealth suit. I don’t know if that’s made it out of what we would say on set, but yeah, the stealth suit to me was just cool, but you know, I’ve loved many suits…maybe not the first Avengers (laughs), maybe not that suit, but the other suits were great.”
Likewise, Evans’ joke that The Avengers suit is definitely not his favorite will also have fans agreeing with him. The MCU has made many mistakes in the costume department, but the bright, toyetic costume Cap wore in the 2012 team-up movie was one of the worst. We see that they were trying to go classic with it, but it just didn’t fit the more grounded style of the franchise – something that makes the Winter Soldier suit work so well.
Unfortunately, it seems that Evans might have worn his last Captain America costume, as he recently wrapped on Avengers 4 and everyone thinks the film will see the end of the character. However, Evans did clarify at this same event that his recent emotional tweet on the matter doesn’t necessarily mean he’s done with the franchise, so who knows? In any case, we can’t wait to see Cap back on the big screen this coming May.
