Entertainment Weekly has shared the first look as Chris Evans in his Captain America garb.

Evans said he declined the role three times before deciding to suit up as the star-spangled Avenger:

“I was just scared,” he told EW. “I realized my whole decision making process was fear based, and you never want to make a decision out of fear.’”

He has signed a six-picture deal to portray Cap in Marvel films.

“I can’t believe was almost too chicken to play Captain America,” he said.

“Captain America: The First Avenger” is set during 1942 during World War II.  The film is set to be released on July 22nd, 2011.
