As I speculated, the S.H.I.E.L.D. suit is "stealth suit", and there will be other suits in the film. http://www.cinemable...rica-38668.html
“So, it’s out there, but for us, it was, it’s thematic for the film, you know,” says Joe Russo. “You’ll see when you see the movie what he’s doing and who he’s working for in the beginning of the film, that costume is appropriate for what they’re asking him to do. It is a stealth outfit. It is for secret missions and I think that, you know, it’s thematic. You know, you read online, people get rankled when you, you know, mess with the stars and the stripes, but there’s a very specific reason we did it in this film. We won’t talk about the other outfits that appear in the movie, which you’ll see in the movie, but again, I’ll just say, that the use of the costume in this film has a very thematic arc to it and hopefully a very arousing arc.” Cap's new advanced fighting style also factored into the costume's design, says Anthony Russo. “It’s very much grounded in real military sort of functionality and purpose. He kicks a lot of ass in this film.” Dotting more on Cap's combat skills, Joe Russo reveals, “Cap is a very sharp individual and part of the serum accelerates his learning ability and if he’s going to be working for who he’s working for at the beginning of the movie, then we felt that he would be the absolute best at every style of fighting that he could be and that he would train himself to be the best to fit into a modern society.” Noting that it made sense in the first film that Cap had a sort of John Sullivan approach to fighting, Joe continues, “Now, he’s trained. He’s trained exhaustively among some of the best people in the world. So, you see all sorts of movement out of him and we did a lot of intensive research with our stunt team, a lot of pre-fight videos and things that we’re really experimenting with how he would move in this movie, how he would fight. I think people will be really shocked when they see his style of fighting.”
Love the sound of Cap's fighting style being amped up in this! That is definitely something I thought they haven't quite nailed in his first two outings. I read another interview with Chris earlier (I'll have to find it and post it later) where he said he's been doing lots of fight training but also lots of gymnastic and parkour training. He said that he played the Captain America video game and thought that that is how his fighting should be handled in the movies. He had a meeting with the Russos and they showed him various fights from things to demonstrate the fighting style they wanted to portray in the movie, and one of them was the intro for the Captain America video game. He said he knew they were on the same page about how Cap's fighting abilities should be amped up.Here's the interview:http://omg.yahoo.com...-223406485.html
