Things We Saw Today: Captain America’s New Winter Soldier Duds

  • The Veronica Mars movie has two more characters returning: Madison Sinclair (Amanda Noret) and Luke Haldeman (Sam Huntington). (Digital Spy)
  • People are responding to the revelation of NSA whistleblower/privacy advocate Edward Snowden‘s identity by violating the privacy of his girlfriend Lindsay Mills, who happens to count pole dancing among her hobbies and has received no shortage of (undeserved, of course) mockery for it. You can smell the irony. The Daily Dot has more.

Behold: The Fannish Misogyny Fairy, drawn by writer/artist Ursula Vernon.

    I like the new suit. I’ll be honest and say I thought Cap’s costume in the Avengers was a weak spot in an otherwise stellar film. I’m not sure what it was, but the whole thing just ended up looking really plastic and corny to me. Like something you’d buy for Halloween.

    Aw, I liked Cap’s costume in the Avengers. It felt very sleek and superhero-y to me. This one looks really military-ish, plus a silly helmet mask. And kneepads. Not really a fan.

    I love how everything Patrick Stewart tweets winds up on here. He’s awesome. =)

    I preferred the colour scheme of The Avengers Cap costume, but otherwise, this is an improvement in every regard. I’ve always loved The Ultimates-style helmet. It makes sense that it would be military-ish, the guy is basically a soldier.

  • Thomas Hayes

    I’ll be honest and say I loved it (I’m with Coulson on this one). The uniform in Captain America: TFA was good too though with it’s slightly more martial look befitting the WW2 period setting, and this new one looks fine to me too. Maybe it’ll fit the tone of the film better? Who knows. I wonder if Black Widow will get a redesign too.

  • frankenmouse

    Ha! I love the misogyny fairy. Although I’d be a lot more pleased if there wasn’t so much reality behind it.

  • Laura Truxillo

    How dare you! Coulson slaved for hours with his Crayola markers over that one!

    I wonder if in Avengers 2 there will be an extremely awkward “Hey Cap! What happened to the costume I designed?” moment.
    “It er….you know…aliens and uh…moths and such.”

    But why is he a guinea pig? Or is that a capybara?

    I don’t care for the militarization of the character. Cap is basically a
    superhero. Having him act as if he is still quasi- still in the
    service yet also a vigilante civilian gives him a police-state feel — the sort of stuff Watchmen satirizes. Don’t get me started on taking the character back to wielding guns.

  • Guymelef

    I would argue that Cap is more a soldier than a superhero, particularly if we’re looking at The Ultimates iteration of the character. Certainly the movie Cap would see himself as more of a mere soldier than a superhero. Also, he still sees himself as being ‘in service’ to the USA. Although yes, I wouldn’t be on board with the whole guns thing, however practical it may be.

    Don’t forget that movie Cap probably still holds very strongly to the WWII American idealism of truth, justice and the American way and that whole jazz. That Watchmen satire you mention just wouldn’t wash with him yet, I think. I should imagine that his personal journey of trying to reconcile his own views of military service and duty with the modern views etc would form something of a personal arc in the next movie.

  • Dave

    That’s his uniform as Commander Rogers, right? Did he get a promotion already?

  • frankenmouse

    Because guinea pigs are adorable? I don’t really know. I never really felt that my guinea pigs were ever going to MRA meetings behind my back…

    Hoary Marmot. From the link “(because A) these are very hoary attitudes and B) if you google them,
    there are some marvelous shots of hoary marmots sitting around in
    groups, looking like grumpy old men)”

    Now I want to see a video of those girls reacting to the video of Lee Pace, Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lily reacting to the video of those girls reacting to the hobbit trailer.

    I can’t wait to see it in action! The suit has got a nice balance of superhero and military man. Plus it doesn’t hurt it’s Chris Evans rocking it, whoo!
