It feels like only a few days have passed since we last brought you a new image of Chris Evans sporting red, white, and blue digs.  With hopes that more really is better, we have yet another new image of Evans in Captain America: The First Avenger to bring you this afternoon.  While Matt expressed concerns that Cap’s costume was somewhat “dorky,” I have to say that I’m a fan of the look as it strikes me as being true to the WWII time period that Steve Rogers initially inhabits.

Hit the jump to check out the full image.  In addition to Evans, Captain America: The First Avenger also stars Hayley Atwell, Hugo Weaving, Sebastian Stan, Tommy Lee Jones, Stanley Tucci, and Toby Jones.  Directed by Joe Johnston, the film hits 3D theaters on July 22nd.

Here’s the official synopsis for Captain America: The First Avenger:

Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige will produce CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. Alan Fine, Stan Lee, David Maisel and Louis D’Esposito will executive produce. The film will be released in the US on July 22, 2011 and distributed by Paramount Pictures.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America.

Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by “vita-rays.” Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and as leader of the Avengers.
