Earlier today, we got our first look at Chris Evans in full-on Captain America garb, sans head gear, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. Now, more pictures from EW’s coverage of Joe Johnston’s Captain America: The First Avenger have surfaced. The pics don’t display anything akin to action, but they do feature several strong shots of Evans decked in WWII attire, complete with Captain America’s vintage shield strung over his back. We also get a great shot of Hugo Weaving’s Johann Schmidt, who later becomes the villainous Red Skull, and smaller shots of Stanley Tucci, playing Dr. Abraham Erskine, and Hayley Atwell as Cap’s love interest Peggy Carter.
Overall the look of the film mirrors Johnston’s own The Rocketeer, which isn’t a bad thing, with shades of Stephen Sommers’ GI: Joe – which is a bad thing. Hit the jump to see the images. Captain America: The First Avenger opens in 3D on July 22, 2011.

Also, here’s a synopsis of the film:
The year is 1942, and Steve Rogers is a scrawny lad who desperately wants to fight Nazis for his country but can’t because he’s been deemed physically unfit. His fate — and his physique — is radically transformed when he signs up for Project: Rebirth, a secret military operation that turns wimps into studs using drugs and assorted sci-fi hoo-ha. There’s a love interest (Major Peggy Carter, played Haley Atwell), there’s a sidekick (Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stans), and there’s the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving), Hitler’s treacherous head of advanced weaponry, whose own plan for world domination involves a magical object known as The Tesseract (comic fans know it better as The Cosmic Cube).
