Copying this bit of info here:
Screenwriters Markus And McFeely Talk CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, There's A Rights Issue With Modok?
Just saw the set photos of Chris Evans in the new suit, and its awesome. Around the time Avengers was coming out I remember talking about how much better it would be if they used the Commander Rogers outfit instead of the traditional outfit. I wonder if the Marvel editors are kicking themselves for getting rid of that suit so quick (or at least pawning it off to Nick Fury jr.)
I prefer the traditional Captain America look. I do like that suit too though. Hopefully he gets the Stars and stripes back for A2.
Mackie dishes a little more on TWS. Still no spoilers on how Batroc and the other villains fit in. Guessing all these assassins are sent to kill someone in D.C. (maybe someone on that World Security Council) and S.H.I.E.L.D. steps in.
Agent Sitwell wouldn't tell Cap and Widow where in the world Carmen San Diego is.

To be honest, the costume is kinda boring.

If it's any consolation, Mackie actually wanted the costume to look more like it does in the comics.
And as much as I liked Cap's costume in Avengers, I don't have a problem with them using a variant of his Secret Avengers costume here. It helps that it looks like Winter Soldier, at least from a story standpoint, is going to be more of a political thriller than a Superhero movie. They'll probably have a more traditional Captain America suit for Avengers 2.
The plain look of the outfit does make sense if he's a soldier or government operative ala his Ultimate counterpart or Hawkeye and Black Widow, which sounds like the route they're going.
There's a tiny little update on the plot from Kevin Feige:
And another piece of concept art.We weren't going back to World War II. Cap cannot travel in time. So while Tony can go home to Malibu and Thor goes up to Asgard and Hulk can sort of ride the rails, Cap was stuck. So Cap does stay with S.H.I.E.L.D. because he has nowhere else to go. But he's not necessarily comfortable there. And just as he's given permission to let go of the past and to focus on the modern world, a ghost comes up. With the Greatest Generation in World World II, there's a tendency to reflect on that period and say, 'Things were black and white back then, and now it's hard to know who the bad guys are.' 'We wanted to play on that a little wit Cap being uncomfortable with the way S.H.I.E.L.D., and in particular Nick Fury, operates. Fury certainly rides a line, sort of rides the shadows. He has, I think, lied to every character in every movie, though always for seemingly for the good.”
