First image of Chris Evans in Captain America costume arrives

Not wanting to let Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man hog all the limelight when it comes to new images, Marvel have released the first picture of Chris Evans in his full Captain America gear.

Entertainment Weekly have the pic, which is the first look we've had at Evans in the full suit.

Cappy's costume was never going to be the easiest to pull off, but they've managed to retain all of the comic character's iconic touches, but within a 'real-world' vibe.

The suit looks lived-in and combat-ready, and the infamous headgear is cooler than it has any right to be.

His trademark shield seems to have taken some fire too, and those are some intriguing-looking goons in the background.

It'll be interesting to see how the Captain's period suit evolves before he joins The Avengers .

Captain America: The First Avenger is due to hit UK cinemas in July 29 2011.
