First Official Look At Chris Evans As Captain America!

Entertainment Weekly has offered up the first official look of Chris Evans as Captain America! Check it out and weigh in with your thoughts!

Captain America: The First Avenger is being directed by Joe Johnston (The Wolfman) and co-stars Sebastian Stan (Gossip Girl) as sidekick Bucky Barnes, Haylee Atwell (The Duchess) as love-interest Peggy Carter, Tommy Lee Jones as possibly General Chester Phillips, Hugo Weaving as the villain Red Skull, and Toby Jones (W.) as Arnim Zola. Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters on July 22, 2011.

The film is set in 1942 and tells the story of how Steve Rogers (Evans) goes from a skinny kid with an itch to kill Nazis to a superhero called Captain America, thanks to a top-secret military program called Project: Rebirth. Haley Atwell plays his love interest, Major Peggy Carter, while Sebastian Stan has stepped into the role of sidekick Bucky Barnes. Hugo Weaving, meanwhile, plays Red Skull, Hitler’s über-evil weapons chief and, inevitably, the Captain’s adversary after he forms plans to use a fantastical device called the Tesseract to conquer the world.
