The new issue of Entertainment Weekly features the first released official image of the movie's titular character, Captain America. Inside the magazine there are interviews with stars Chris Evans and Hugo Weaving and director Joe Johnston. Evans explains why he turned down the role three times before accepting the part. "I was just scared... I realized my whole decision making process was fear based, and you never want to make a decision out of fear."

Evans also revealed that he signed a contract that locks him in to playing Captain America in a total of six movies.

A dozen spy photos of Chris Evans on the set of Captain America are now on the 'net and they show just how much the actor has been hitting the gym to beef up for the part. Strangely, while Evans was filming the scene the papaarazzi photographer took some snapshots of the prosthetics the actor was wearing over his feet. Why does Captain America's feet look all big and mutated in this scene? Take a look and scratch your head.

The Captain America production is shooting exterior scenes in Manchester in the north quarter of the city. There the movie crew has dressed up a street to resemble England of the 1940s. Hayley Atwell, who is playing Peggy Carter in the film, was photographed performing an action scene where guns were fired, explosions went off and cars raced away down the road.

The photo is one of three taken and published by CaptainAmericaFilmingManchester, a website following the location shoot (and brought to our attention by Coming Soon.) The video below was taken by Chris Murren and uploaded to YouTube and gives us a great vantage point to watch the action play out in the scene.

The Daily Mail has published a series of six photos showing the production shooting exterior scenes in a nice green part of London. Three of the photos show a stunt double wearing the Captain America costume riding a motorcycle while two others show a mean but very cool looking period automobile and what looks like a pair of HYDRA soldiers riding their motorbikes.

For the record, this is everyone's first photographic look at the hero's costume.

Yesterday hundreds of extras assembled in Trafalgar Square in downtown London, England to film a scene for the film. The scene is a recreation of the celebratory mood of Londoners when V.E. Day took place near the end of World War II, the day that Nazi Germany formally surrendered to the Allies.

A WENN photographer took dozens of shots showing the extras dressed in clothing of that period including soldiers in uniform and people carrying recreations of old newspapers.

Marvel has finally confirmed that Tommy Lee Jones will play Colonel Chester Phillips in the film. In their press release the company notes that, in the Captain America comics, Phillips recruited Steve Rogers to Project Rebirth, the military experiment that created the Captain. That event took place during World War II. Marvel states that "the character [of Phillips] will be updated for the film," so the Colonel may be transferred to the modern day.

That Captain America costume report published by JoBlo yesterday turned into leaked conceptual artwork today on Ain't It Cool News. Someone with access to the costume art that JoBlo's Mike Sampson saw leaked the same designs to AICN and Sampson confirmed that these are indeed the same costume designs that he saw and come from within the movie production. In short: this is what Captain America's costume will look like when he wears it in the World War II portion of the film.

The first description of Captain America's costume has been posted by Mike Sampson of movie website JoBlo. Sampson saw with his own eyes at one of the approved costume tests which we'll see Cap wear sometime during his World War II missions.

"The first thing I noticed is that the trademark wings that flank the side of Cap's hood are gone," explains Sampson. "In fact the 'hood' is gone entirely. In its place is a more traditional M1 Army helmet though this helmet does come over the eyes to give Cap a traditional 'domino mask' look. Still present is the white 'A' in the middle of the hat (nothing fancy, this is the traditional font), though like the rest of the costume, the blue of the helmet is much more muted than the blue in the comic costume. A thick black strap comes down over the ears and connects under the chin."

More details about this costume design can be read on JoBlo.

British actor Dominic Cooper is playing the young father of future Iron Man superhero Tony Stark in Captain America. How do we know? Simple: Salon interviewed the Mamma Mia! and An Education star and got it straight from him.

In Iron Man 2 we saw John Slattery play the middle-aged Howard Stark circa 1972. We're guessing that for Captain America the young Howard Stark will be in his early 20s.

The Captain America movie will shoot entirely in London, England when director Joe Johnston calls action on the set. In an article about the production's makers deciding not to film the movie in America, The Los Angeles Times reports that it came down to two reasons: most of the movie's story takes place in England, and the scenes can be filmed at the actual English locations, and London offers at 20% - 25% tax incentive for movies that decide to shoot in the city.

The paper also listed the movie's budget at $140 million dollars.

Toby Jones is close to joining the cast of Captain America in the role of Arnim Zola, the Nazi-collaborating evil scientist from the comics. In that world Zola created an array of weird genetic Hitler clones and super-soldiers for the Third Reich, then placed his head into a super-advanced robot body to live on and battle Cap after the hero was re-discovered.

Among the many parts Jones has played are Norm the grocery store manager in The Mist, Swifty Lazar in Frost/Nixon and Karl Rove in Oliver Stone's W.
