A new image from the upcoming Captain Marvel gives fans a new look at Carol Danvers in her Kree suit with her mohawk. Captain Marvel will be the long-awaited 21st entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, introducing Brie Larson as the titular superhero.
Between the Captain Marvel trailers and colorful movie posters, Marvel has made it clear that Carol Danvers' double life will play a big part in the overall story of the film. The trailers suggest that she had a normal life on Earth working as a US Air Force pilot, but shows that Danvers is struggling with remembering the exact details of these memories. To top it off, she will also try to put an end to the Kree-Skrull War. The look of her character has been seen before in the trailers, but a new image has been released showing Danvers sporting her green Kree armor - mohawk and all.
A new image from USA Today shows off a new look for Captain Marvel with her Kree armor and iconic mohawk hairdo. There isn't any context about the image or where the scene takes place, but it appears as though Danvers is prepared to fight someone (given her battle stance) while she is still affiliated with Starforce. The image of Larson in her Kree armor can be seen below:
Fans were surprised when first look images of Captain Marvel showed Carol Danvers in a green suit rather than her classic red, blue, and gold design. There were many theories as to why this would be, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems to be creating a unique storyline for the character. Captain Marvel is well known as a superhero, but before she can call herself a hero, she will start off as part of the supervillain team called Starforce, a group of Kree warriors who seem to report to Ronan the Accuser and are led by Jude Law's mysterious character. This explains why Danvers will start off her story in a green costume before changing into her more recognizable suit. As for her mohawk, that look is pulled straight from the comic books in order to please longtime fans of the comics.
Even though this new image doesn't really give away anything about the movie, it will still likely get fans excited for the next entry of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only will Captain Marvel introduce a new superhero into the MCU, but the powerful hero is also thought to be the key to undoing Thanos' destruction from Avengers: Infinity War. No matter what happens to her character in Avengers: Endgame, Marvel seems to be doing Captain Marvel justice - not only adding elements from the comics, but adding some unique narrative layers to a character that fans may not have expected.
