Marvel hit Comic Con this year with guns blazing, and the studio dropped a ton of news for several of their upcoming films.
In an unexpected reveal, Marvel Studios showcased Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel costume, and gave us juicy new details about the 2019 film. That info, in turn, may give us a hint about where the MCU is headed after Avengers: Infinity War.
During the Marvel panel at #SDCC2017, we saw the first concept art for Captain Marvel, and learned that Brie Larson’s hero has been in the game for decades. Much like Captain America: The First Avenger, #CaptainMarvel will take place prior to Iron Man. This time the setting will be the mid ’90s, and she will be fighting the Skrulls alongside a two-eyed Nick Fury.
As seen in this concept art, the costume is comic book accurate, but it still fits into the MCU. As Tom Turner on Twitter pointed out, Captain Marvel’s costume draws influence from Jamie McKelvie’s recent design of the character, with the full-length dark blue bodysuit.
The suit is accented with a darker red on the shoulders, with matching boots and gloves of the same color; silver trims the suit. It is of note that the concept art does bear a striking resemblance to Captain America’s suit from Captain America: Winter Soldier, especially with the color scheme and the star adorning the chest.
Some Captain Marvel fans wanted to see Brie Larson spot a mohawk and full facemask, but sadly, that doesn’t appear to be in the cards for now. However, the Captain Marvel solo film takes place in the ‘90s, so in the future, we could see her adorn her Marvel Cosmic costume.
Captain Marvel will make her first appearance in Avengers: Infinity War, but her first solo film won’t premiere until March 8, 2019. In the meantime, fans can check out Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man and the Wasp, which will premiere over the next year.
