A Comparison Of The Captain America And Red Guardian Suit


Captain America Suit And Its Similarities To The Suit Of Red Guardian:

The first-ever Black Widow solo movie teaser trailer is now out for viewing. And it shows Red Guardian, played by Stranger Things actor David Harbour. However, what’s actually stranger is the similarity between his suit with the Captain America Suit.

Who is Red Guardian?

Red Guardian is the Russian version of Captain America, with a mysterious future in the MCU. He is a key character who appears in the film, alongside Scarlett Johansson.

In Marvel Comics, Alexei, also known as Red Guardian, first appears in The Avengers #43. This is back in 1967, a long time ago. He is a Soviet pilot who eventually goes on to become the second iteration of the Red Guardian character. Moreover, he is also married to Natasha.

Red Guardian Versus Captain America

In the comics, Alexei was always intended to be the Russian version of Captain America. And the trailer of Black Widow makes that very clear as well. Moreover, one can also see the similarities between the costume of Red Guardian and that of the Captain America Suit.

The biggest similarity that the Red Guardian’s costume has to Captain America Suit is the face-covering mask and the armored suit with a star in the center. Moreover, many believe that the former’s costume is a recreation of the famous Captain America Suit. The only difference is that the Red Guardian’s ensemble is slightly rosier, rather than blue.

And while Cap is fitter as compared to his Russian alternative, the uncanny resemblance between both their suits is intriguing, to say the very least. For now, all we know is that Red Guardian will presumably play an important role in Black Widow.

The film will set forth the beginning of MCU’s Phase 4. Furthermore, it will hit theatres on May 1st, 2020.
