Marvel recently revealed the Captain America costume that Chris Evans will be donning in the superhero blockbuster, The Avengers, at San Diego Comic-Con 2011, which recently took place from July 20th to July 24th. This is the modern-day version of the red, white and blue threads that the Cap’n rocks in the current movie; it is streamlined and sleeker. We dig the new design, he’ll fit in nicely with Iron Man.

Chris Evans as Captain America, this is the costume that you'll see in the current movie which is truer to the period and time. It is composed mostly heavy-duty coveralls and leather.
