The first official picture of Captain America has surfaced and he looks…well a bit fake. This obviously photo-shopped image of Chris Evans in custom comes our way via Entertainment Weekly, and the pencilled style while obviously an homage to his comic-book roots just doesn’t sit right. I mean you have to know it’s Chris Evans to recognise him!

The accompanying article includes a synopsis of the character and movie:

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)

Captain America: The First Avenger is out July 22nd, 2011.
