Captain America’s New Costume Spotted on The AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Set
Filming for Joss Whedon‘s highly-anticipated Avengers sequel is well underway. We saw a few pictures from the film while it was in South Africa, several shots of Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) from the filming in Italy, and now we’ve gotten our first look at Captain America in action during filming in South Korea. While it’s not Chris Evans in the suit, we do get a look at his new duds as a stuntman films a rather exciting scene on the Mapo Bridge.
A video has popped up on YouTube (via @_NerdyGeek_ and CBM) showing a scene being filmed on top of a moving truck. You can watch the full video below to see the stunt itself, but we’ve included a few shots of the costume since I know that’s what you’re all wanting to see anyway. It looks very similar to his old costume, which is on display in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, though it does seem to have a few bits of additional armor on the shoulders and arms. It appears that the ears will be uncovered as well. Fans of covered ears will just have to hold onto the brief time they get with that particular look in The Winter Soldier. It’s not a super clear shot, but it is a very intriguing looking update for the costume. We may even get another slightly modified costume before the film ends.
Interesting side note: the Mapo Bridge is a notorious suicide hot spot in Korea. The crew came across a dead body today while they were prepping the area for filming. That’s not a very cheery fact you’d want to hear about filming on Age of Ultron, but it’s a fact nonetheless. What do you think about Cap‘s slightly modified look? What do you think is going on in the scene being shot?
