We just loved Captain America: The First Avenger and thought Chris Evans did a pretty decent job in portraying one of America's most beloved comic book heroes. So today, we're bringing you some very cool new set pics from the filming of the Avengers movie. And they're all about ... Captain America.

Taken while the eagerly anticipated Marvel blockbuster was filming in Cleveland this week, the new pics give us the opportunity to have a closer, clearer look at Captain America's brand-spanking-new costume—which looks good overall.

However—and we hope it's not just us—we think his helmet looks a little off. We kind of wish the little side wings would have been three-dimensional rather than painted flat on the side of the helmet. What do you think about it?

Also starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Clark Gregg, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård and Amanda Righetti, and directed by Buffy and Firefly showrunner Joss Whedon, The Avengers will hit theaters on May 4, 2012.
