Captain Marvel Movie Costume Explained
Check out some behind the scenes photos of Brie Larson's Captain Marvel costume!

The Captain Marvel movie was announced ages ago, and that March 9, 2019 release date feels further off than it probably is. Brie Larson will play fan-favorite cosmic powered badass Carol Danvers in the film, which will be an origin story set in the 1990s with an action movie feel. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind) are directing from a by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. As far as hard details, that's about all we have to go on.

But it's amazing what a few images from a set can tell you. Considering that Marvel clearly has big plans for Captain Marvel after Avengers: Infinity War, it's surprising that they haven't given fans an "official" look yet. Until then, we'll have to get by with some set photos.

This is a great superhero suit. It doesn't look like anything the Avengers are traditionally known for, and the high tech design marks it as just alien enough. You can see a little more of it, as well as Samuel L. Jackson as young Nick Fury in these...

As you can see, the suit itself looks very much like the Jamie McKelvie costume design that helped launch Carol Danvers to new heights of popularity. While that costume is blue, red, and yellow, don't be thrown by the green, black, and silver look on display here.

The Captain Marvel suit is essentially the military uniform of the Kree, who are kinda like semi-imperialist intergalactic zen fascists, and Danvers inherits her powers, suit, and the mantle of Captain Marvel from an alien named (wait for it) Mar-Vell. Jude Law will play Captain Mar-Vell in the movie. If Carol is wearing his suit, well, that's not a great sign for his odds of survival, right?

Anyway, while that version of Captain Marvel was also known for his primary colored suit, his early look (and some later designs too) were more in line with the color scheme of this design.

For example...

The terrific Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes animated series did a great version of Carol Danvers' origin, with a well-designed, and very cool/alien looking Mar-Vell. Have a look:

It's possible that Carol will only wear this version of the suit for part of the movie, too. Marvel Studios loves to evolve their heroes' looks, often paying tribute to their earliest costume designs in the first act of a film before putting them in something more recognizable later. Just look at Steve Rogers' stage gear in Captain America: The First Avenger or the gunmetal gray suit from the first act of Iron Man. Don't be surprised if Carol is in the red and blue by the end of the film (or when she shows up in Avengers 4), especially since that's the version of the logo that was recently teased in Avengers: Infinity War.

Hopefully we'll get an official look soon.

Captain Marvel opens on March 8, 2019. The full Marvel superhero movie release schedule can be found here:
