Explosive Pics from the Captain America Set

See cars explode! See Peggy Carter fire a big gun! See Captain America's weird feet!

 Fake feet are freaky!

A little shot of super soldier serum and a dash of Vita rays will make you big and strong, sure... but does it also make the skin on your feet all rubbery? A big thumb’s up (for justice) to Ckal for bringing this batch of spy photos from the CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER set to our attention. These pics (collected from the likes of SHH and CBM) show Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell in action as Cap and his wartime gal, Peggy Carter, as they chase some Ratzi saboteurs through the busy streets of the city.  

GUNFIRE! EXPLOSIONS! FLESH-COLORED, FOOT-SHAPED BOOTS! Judging by how tight and dressed-down Chris “absurdly jacked” Evans’ clothes look, I concur with the assessment that this scene likely occurs immediately after the aborted Operation: Rebirth operation - - mere moments after the frail 4-H Steve Rogers is transformed into the bold, virile Captain America! 

Take a gander at these visions of the future... == TEASER ==   
   

So what’s the deal with the feet? Seriously. I’d presume that those are for Evans (and his stunt double) to appear as if they’re running barefoot while still protecting their precious bunyans from all the hazards of urban black top. You know, nails, glass shards, germs and the like. As has been pointed out, this was actually used a lot for all the Hobbits in the LORD OF THE RINGS movies. Although, those were even grosser-looking on account of the fact that the shoes all had thick little patches of Hobbit hair on top.

Anyway, all these pics look like they’ll make for one visceral action set piece. Peggy chases after the saboteurs… a car blows up behind her… Cap comes to her rescue… and then he has to take up the chase again. You ought to check out this “window view” video for the British spectators’ rather amusing reaction to ‘splosion...

@Tom
Nice article man. Piecing this all together, it is definitely right after he takes the Super Soldier Serum! (take a look at how small his pants are also)

Here is the video of Chris Evans -a blonde Steve Rogers ;)  - chasing down a car.

It looks awesome, I can't wait to see a completed version of... whatever!

damn he's bulked up.

You know what would be great for this movie? They should show Logan in this movie since he lived through the 1940s. I highly doubt they would show him but it would be great though. Just like in the Wolverine Origins series. I wonder if Baron Von Strucker will appear in this movie. Since he's the leader of HYDRA. 
 
So far this movie is turning out to be good as it looks. But they shouldn't send these photos early before the release. This can spoil the scenes for the upcoming movie. Because we know what's going to be happen when we see it in theaters.

My doubts about this movie have almost entirely evaporated at this point.  I initially had doubts about Evans, then I went and watched his more serious roles and I felt he'd do a great job.  I had my doubts about the costume until I saw the pics of it and it turned out pretty sweet.  Then I see these and how frickin huge Evans got for the role and I'm pretty much sold.  This one's going to be awesome.

Posted by danhimself

dude he looks perfect for the role now....it's amazing what a few months of steroid abuse will do for you

Posted by Sergotron

Looking kind of jacked he is. I am loving that this movie is turning out to be more of a period piece.

At least this time they got the hair right

I don't know he seems like he's the same size when he did FF 2 & the Losers. Don't get me wrong he's in great shape he's always been in great shape & he does look a little bit bigger. But I would've imagined him to have gotten alot bigger like Bale did in Begins. I think Ed (mrrpm01) & I might be bigger than him ha ha. 
 
I'm hoping this movie will be great since I'm a HUGE Cap fan next to Batman. Even though I have my distaste towards them using the Ultimate Cap costume than the traditonal one.  
 
Here's video of Rogers (Evans) in action

He's actually a lot bigger than Human Torch. The Human Torch was just lean. Cap is looking like a monster.
Also, I think he's just as big (or bigger than) Bale was.
Posted by Mr.Hulk_Smashin'!

He's really fast and pretty ripped. I'm also kinda happy he's blonde. I mean I wouldn't have cared if remained brunette, I mean that could be used as a sort of Anti-Nazi message, yeah I know. Hair is the message.

AWESOME! THIS IS THE BEST NEWS I'VE HEARD ALL DAY! =)

Posted by jakob187

I still have massive doubts about this movie because of Joe Johnston's involvement.  I hope that I'm wrong, though.

Posted by Bruce Vain
@Mr.Hulk_Smashin'!:
Well like I said he looks bigger than he did in FF2 , but I wouldn't say monster big. I saw him at SDCC at the Marvel booth. Like I said I was alot bigger than him. I was expecitng him to be like I don't know Howie Long /Brian Bosworth big. ha ha
 
Bale leaned up in DK but in Begins he was massive. They said he got TOO big when he gained all the weight back from after the Machinist.

This is looking better and better :)
 
Don't fail us, Marvel! Evans has certainly got the look downpat.

Posted by ComicCrazy

WOW!!! I knew Chris Evans was the right choice I mean just look at his hair and how much he has bulked up he looks exactly like Steve Rogers. This is going to be awesome!!
Posted by JML103179

The explanation for the rubbery feet is the same as why Lou Ferrigno wore green shoes when he was The Hulk. Guys, he's running on ashpault and he's an actor. You think he WANTS to risk injury? And I agree with all of you guys; Evans looks the part now. To hell with Flamin' On. Give the man his shield NOW.
Posted by Brickabrack

This movie is looking like it'll be great. I think Marvels biggest concern is how Thor will be recieved. While all these movies don't have to be a blockbuster for the Avengers to do well, it would help a lot. 
 
I'm amazed how like Captain America Evens looks now. Little bit of muscle and a hair style change and bingo. Good casting.

Posted by Mainline

I'm always encouraged by actors who show the discipline and dedication to a role to literally reshape their bodies through hard work.  It's no guarantee of success but certainly a step in the right direction.

I'm nervous about both Thor and Captain America, but that is only because I want them to succeed critically and at the B.O. so badly! I think Marvel will impress us all with these! I agree, Cap is looking better and better everyday and Chris looks great as Steve.
Posted by zoist

I think he looks great as Steve Rogers. I'm getting excited for this after seeing the photos.

Posted by jordama

what do you think they did for the weakling sceenes?
Posted by Hamz

Chris Evans arms look massive. God. Way to make me feel inferior :(

Posted by SUPER-MAN 23

What are those weird feet for anyway? That makes no sense.

@SUPER-MAN 23:
they're so he can run around outside in barefeet and not step on a nail or something 
they'll look much better after a littel CGI touch up

That would require them to have some level of continuity with any of the X-Men or Wolverine films.  Sucks that we both know that wont ever happen.

He looks good actually, time shall tell :)

Posted by reaper2923

Holy crap he does look like Steve!

Posted by Mr.Hulk_Smashin'!

Even if the film is just ok, we can be guaranteed this movie will make at 400 mil at the BO. There's the elderly who grew up with cap, the historians, the critics, us fans, and then all the kids.

Posted by BK-77-7

This movie looks to be  splendiferous I approve 

Posted by Silver Knight75

He is actually starting to look like Steve.

For the scenes when Steve is a 'weakling,' Chris Evans will still be used. But in post production, they will use CGI to make his body appear smaller, skinnier, and frail looking.
Posted by Kid_Zombie

F-ING A!
looks great he is huge and the hair is perfect. very happy

Posted by AMS

Looks like 60kg on his arms same as me. It's not hard people, less donut eating and more weightlifting and you could all look like that.

He might have to starve himself at the end of filming, so he seriously slims down. Or it might be Camera angling that'll make him look smaller.
