New York Comic Con didn’t have much to deliver on the MCU front, but it seems like Russia is picking up the slack. After all, the country did house a special Disney conference this weekend, and a set of Avengers: Infinity War promo art pieces from the event are going viral.
As you can see below, attendees at the conference were treated to a look at the past and future of the MCU. Fans were greeted by a giant mural featuring several of the franchise’s characters, but it was the standees that caught everyone’s eye. Heroes like Thor, Black Widow, and Captain America were shown in their Avengers: Infinity War gear - and fans can’t get enough of Steve Rogers.
Fans have known for awhile that Captain America would rock facial hair in the Avengers, but the new promo gives a look at the hero in his brand-new suit. After the events of Captain America: Civil War, Steve has left his life as an Avenger behind thanks to his fugitive status. The hero still works his usual good of saving the world, but Steve does so without his old title and his suit reflects the change.

Do you see any star-spangled armor on the hero? Yeah, thought not.
Captain America’s suit is much more muted than his previous costumes and is missing a few signature pieces. There is no gaping white start in the hero’s suit, and its red-and-white stripes are also darkened. The suit completes itself with a brown utility belt, shoulder straps and leather gloves.
Oh, and the good captain also has his uniform’s sleeves rolled up. That alone is enough to get fangirls a little bothered.
The new promo artwork doesn’t just shine a light on Captain America and his new threads. The standees also highlight Thor and Black Widow as the founding Avengers are seen donning new costumes as well.
