A lot of people reserve their criticism towards comic book super-hero movies on the basis of “at least they are getting made” — to which I wholeheartedly reject.
Case in point: the forthcoming Captain America film, which features a costume that looks radically different than the comic book version because it “translates” better to the big screen (Read: Take A Look: Best Shot Of Chris Evans As Captain America Yet!).
I realize this could be due in part to the time period that the film is based in (1940s) and that a modernized version could pop up when we see Captain America in The Avengers film.
But honestly, this is the first thing that came to my mind after seeing the high resolution images Marvel release yesterday (Click the image thumbnail).
For those who have no idea who “Super Pro” is, he was a football super-hero that was officially licensed by the NFL. Marvel printed at least eight issues of the series. It was one of the darker periods during the early 90s that everyone tries to forget ever happened.
So there you go, movie Captain America is basically Super Pro with more stars and less yellow.
