Captain Marvel Set Photo Leaves Some Scratching Their Heads
A first look at the costume for the star-soaring superhero, Captain Marvel, has left some fans confused. Marvel has released some images of Brie Larson in costume for Marvel’s first female-led superhero film. Larson, who is portraying Captain Marvel (aka Carol Danvers), is wearing a spandex outfit that is green and blue. Carol Danvers’ version of Captain Marvel is usually depicted wearing a combination of red, yellow, and blue.
There could be a number of reasons behind this seeming outfit change. First, this may not be Captain Marvel’s proper costume. Since Danvers is an Air Force pilot, she may have to wear a superhero-esque outfit. Secondly, the outfit may change, either through the plot or through general special effects. Danvers may end up in some sort of accident that could give her powers and incidentally change what her outfit looks like. If the outfit colors are due to special effects reasons, the outfit may look entirely different when Danvers is on screen. Finally, this may be Danvers’ proper costume, but that’s not a huge departure from the comics.
The original Captain Marvel, Mar-Vell, had a costume that was blue and green. It is entirely possible that this costume, whether it’s our Captain Marvel’s official costume or not, is a tribute to the original holder of the title. It’s also interesting to note that the title Marvel Studios used when announcing the film was yellow. It seems unlikely that Marvel Studios would change a popular character’s costume entirely, but we won’t know more about her costume for a while.
Captain Marvel is currently scheduled to come to a theater near you on March 8, 2019.
