Captain Marvel Concept Art Gives Carol Danvers a Comic Book Inaccurate Suit

Captain Marvel Poster

Brie Larson's Carol Danvers could've received a very different, and comic inaccurate, costume in Captain Marvel if this concept art was chosen as the basis for her look. The latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe helped bring their first lead female superhero to the big screen, and even though Marvel Studios worked in some of their usual changes from the source material, the film and Carol's story is still largely based on her comic book history - especially the work of Kelly Sue DeConnick.

Even though Carol's traditional look is a red, blue, and yellow suit, the early appearance of Larson on set in a green costume surprised many. It was quickly sorted out that this green and white look was a result of her being part of the Kree military, with Marvel eventually confirming she was part of an elite group known as Starforce. As Captain Marvel's plot unfolds and Carol learns more about her otherwise mysterious past though, she ditches this look for her usual look that fans of the comics have grown accustomed to.

Concept artist Aleksi Briclot has now revealed some of his alternate designs for Carol Danvers' Kree look in Captain Marvel, and it's safe to say there are major deviations from comic lore. The three designs all attempt to mostly conceal Vers' look, with the first two designs electing to completely cover her from head to toe. Only the final design gives any indication what the person wearing these elaborate designs looks like, but check them out below.

The decision to possibly conceal Carol's identity when she was working with the Kree could've been another layer to add to the mystery that Captain Marvel gives her, but it would also only be effective if audiences don't immediately know that it's Carol. One nice detail that two of the designs include is the Hala logo that's often customary on Kree military suits in the comics. This logo is nowhere to be seen in Captain Marvel though, but maybe that will change in a sequel.

As if there was any doubt before, Captain Marvel 2 continues to look all the more likely to happen. The first film has already passed Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the box office in just two weeks and may be on its way to being another billion dollar hit for Marvel Studios. With mostly positive reviews and Carol positioned for a big role in Avengers: Endgame, the interest in more from this franchise is likely only going to continue to rise. And with her suit already changing again for Endgame, maybe her next suit or some additional Kree looks can incorporate elements of these pieces of Captain Marvel art.
