Empire recently got a chance to speak with the new Captain America: The First Avenger, Chris Evans, where he gave some new details on the costume for the film.

"It's an amazing costume. Given the fact that his costume is red, white and blue, and it's tight, and it could be kind of flash and over the top - and given the fact that the movie takes place in the '40s and '50s - they've done a really good job of making it look really cool."

"I think everyone that's going to see it is going to say, 'Okay, well done. Well done. I think they got the costume right. The casting they completely ruined, but the costume they nailed!'"

The site also asked Evans about how they will go about using the character's iconic shield.

"We've been testing a lot of shields. Last time I was in London they had six shields and I had to hold each one, see if I was comfortable with each one, see which one we all thought had the right look. The thing is pretty heavy, so I'm not sure I can throw it that far! I'll give it my best shot, but hopefully they'll have some sort of stunt shield when it comes to actually chucking it!"

We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further news regarding Captain America: The First Avenger, which is gearing up to start shooting later this month, as soon as we have more information.
