Captain America Gets a Suit Upgrade in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Concept Art
The other day, we got a peek at Tony Stark’s new Iron Man armor for Captain America: Civil War, continuing his sleek, super-powered evolution in the MCU. But Stark isn’t the only one getting a sweet suit upgrade — Steve Rogers’ Cap suit has evolved a bit too over the years, and he’ll also be receiving a slight change in apparel come Civil War. New concept art gives us a preview of this new suit, and while it’s not too different, there are some cool changes.
The concept art popped up on Umberto Gonzalez’s Instagram, and at first glance, it doesn’t look all that different:
But eagle-eyed Marvel fans will notice the differences: the star on his chest is a bit brighter, and there’s more definition to the abdomen section, which has been elongated a bit — maybe Cap got a couple of extra abs for Christmas. His pants and shoulder straps are slightly changed and more streamlined, and he got a shiny new pair of boots. His shield also looks a little darker than the previous version.
You can see the differences in this photo, which illustrates the evolution of his costume:
Based on the acclaimed comic book series, Captain America: Civil War will see Steve Rogers and Tony Stark butting heads over a new government initiative, effectively dividing the heroes of the MCU and forcing them to take sides.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
