Lots of cool stuff was on display this year at San Diego Comic-Con, and we're still compiling video and whatnot to show you. To kick things off, take a look at some props from movies that are still a way off. Let's start with Captain America's costume from THE AVENGERS. If you saw CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, and stuck around until after the credits, you probably saw the teaser tag for THE AVENGERS movie directed by Joss Whedon. You may have caught a glimpse of Cap's costume redesign, but not much more than a glimpse. Well, we've got some photos to show you from the Marvel Comics booth, which was actually the cockpit of the helicarrier from the upcoming superhero team flick. Right up front was the display case straight out of the upcoming movie, which houses the outfit worn by Captain Steve Rogers (Chris Evans). Check out some pics below and let the drooling begin - I took as many shots as I could, even making sure to capture the new boots and pants. Up next is a new (despite the rugged look) motorcycle from GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE, which sees Nicolas Cage returning to the role of Johnny Blaze, only this time in the hands of co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (CRANK and CRANK: HIGH VOLTAGE). It co-stars Ciarán Hinds, Idris Elba, Christopher Lambert, Violante Placido, Fergus Riordan and Johnny Whitworth as "Blackout." Not exactly the most impressive-looking prop, but still a look at what we'll soon be seeing on the big screen, and I like the dark and gritty retro-style of it. And finally, here's a few shots of a futuristic police car from the TOTAL RECALL remake, directed by Len Wiseman, and starring Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biel, Bill Nighy, Bokeem Woodbine, John Cho, Will Yun Lee and Kate Beckinsale. Remind anyone of BLADE RUNNER? Also, dig the robot-looking police suit thing, which is... intriguing. I'll end this article with a shot of me with the TOTAL RECALL babes, who braved the intense sun to take photos with fans. More to come from San Diego Comic-Con, so stay tuned!
