“The Green Hornet” opens in theaters this weekend, but there are two other superheroes looking to grab your attention. Both “Captain America: The First Avenger” and the Spider-Man reboot released a first look of their leading men in their respective crime-fighting costumes. Leading up to Captain America’s July 22, 2011 release, we’ve seen images of a super-buff Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, but never seen him as his superhero alter ego. That is, until now. Personally, I’m loving the modern-day interpretation of the Captain America get-up. The colors are more muted and the costume looks more like a fancy airman jumpsuit than the pajama-friendly original. It’s way butcher and manly.
Even though the Spider-Man reboot doesn’t hit theaters until July 3, 2012, Columbia Pictures released the first official image of Andrew Garfield as the web crawler. The new movie will retell the Peter Parker saga during his high school years. Ergo, the backpack you see in the image. Obviously Garfield isn’t as buff as Tobey Maguire, but he suits the part considering he’s playing a teen. He’s dark, disheveled and gangly like most boys in their awkward teenage years. Unlike the Captain America updated look, Garfield’s Spider-Man costume is more in line with what fans are familiar with but with a few minor updates.
