Neither "Captain America: The First Avenger" nor "X-Men: First Class" are due to arrive in theaters for quite a while, but fans can already get a sneak peek at some of the costume design thanks to recent photos from the films' respective sets.
The images snapped at “X-Men’s” set depict January Jones as Emma Frost, aka the White Queen, rocking a retro look that included a short white coat, knee-high boots and a furry white hat. The pictures also caught what appears to be her stunt double wearing a matching outfit and haircut.
And although Chris Evans is the star in “Captain America,” it was his stunt double that was captured by cameras on the film’s London-area set and obtained by U.K. paper The Daily Mail. The stunt double was decked out in the iconic costume, complete with helmet and shield, and riding out on a period motorbike.
The costume seems to hold true to the expectations Evans set for it when he chatted with MTV in July. "It's not this sleek spandex suit,” Evans explained. “It looks like something you might wear in the '40s in the middle of a war."
But it also looks like the heroic character will have a few iterations of his classic costume. “He's used in different areas, so he has different stages of the suit,” Evans told MTV. “I don't think he actually jumps into the final suit until the third act of the film.”
The movie has been filming since June and is slated to arrive in theaters next July.
