In three new stills from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we get not only two great shots of Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, but also a first look at him in the sequel decked out in his costume from 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger. Alongside him is Anthony Mackie as The Falcon, and this seemingly confirms earlier rumours that Cap eventually ditches his “Super Soldier” suit (which he uses for missions with S.H.I.E.L.D.) in preference of his classic outfit.

Why? Well, we’ll just have to wait until the movie is released in April to find out. Talking to The LA Times (via CBM), Evans had this to say about what brings Steve and Sam Wilson/The Falcon together.

“For Steve, it’s about what is right. He’s relatively acclimated to the modern day — it’s not tech shock anymore, he’s not just like, ‘What’s a cellphone?’ It’s more about, given his situation, given the company he works for, what are we doing that’s the right thing? How much privacy, civil liberties are we willing to compromise for security? It’s pretty crazy how relevant it is right now.” Meeting [Anthony] Mackie’s character, he used to serve, now he works at the VA counseling guys who come home with PTSD — they connect on that level. I think they’re both wounded warriors who don’t bleed on other people. Cap has no one to bleed on. I think Mackie knows how to handle people like that. … Sometimes when things are bad, trusting a stranger is the way to go.”
