We recently saw our first look, via set photos, of actress Brie Larson in full costume as Captain Marvel. The images revealed that her suit was a green variation, not the classic red and blue look that fans are used to. President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, assures fans of the property, it’s not exactly what it looks like.
Feige talked about some of the fans’ negative reactions to the aforementioned set photos and the character’s new look:
“If you want to film out in public — and Captain Marvel has a lot of scenes that will be shot on location — it’s gonna happen. Everything is filmed nowadays, so years ago, we decided, ‘If it’s gonna happen, let it happen.’ Most people are savvy enough to know they’re looking at a behind-the-scenes photo, completely out of context. So we don’t do things like rush photos.”
The successful producer suggested that some of the theories fans have come up with, may actually have some truth, and also mentioned the concept art revealed at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, featuring Larson in the classic look:
“We released some concept art of her with different colors, People online have correctly identified what’s going on there.”
It’s likely those theories, where she is simply using an early form of her costume, are the ones Feige was alluding to. Perhaps, Danvers has a lower rank in the Kree Military before her eventual promotion to Captain.
Captain Marvel hits theatres on March 6th, 2019.
