The first images of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel have been leaked, and they may not be what you expect.
Released by Page Six, the photos were captured on set in Atlanta, and show Larson suited up, but not in the famous red and blue ensemble iconic to the character. If anything, it looks more like something Green Lantern would wear rather than Captain Marvel. But this look does actually hint at what we can expect from the movie.
If you’re a big fan of the character, you’ll already know that this green suit hints at the origins of Carol Danvers becoming the famous hero. The colour scheme hearkens back to the very first Captain Marvel — that is, the alien hero Mar-Vell, whose original look favoured more green tones. Mar-Vell is also a huge part of how Danvers gets her powers. We know Jude Law has signed on to play the alien, so it’s safe to assume to movie will closely follow the same origins of the comics.
What you also notice from the images is a couple of details that confirm the 90’s setting. In one shot Danver’s is holding a newspaper with stock details, and in another there’s an extremely dated car in the background. It’s likely these scenes are early on Danver’s journey, as she’ll for sure have graduated to the iconic suit by the end of the movie. Or perhaps that will be saved for Avengers 4? Chronologically it will have been some 20 years since her origin movie and her appearance alongside Tony & co., so maybe she’s spent some of that time upgrading to the red and blue get-up?
We’ll have to wait until 2019 to find out, but for now we’re just excited to know that Captain Marvel is well into production!
