Kevin Feige comments on leaked Captain Marvel costume images

Back in late January, the Twitter account Geeks Worldwide posted a pair of first-look images of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel on the set of AVENGERS 4. The photos featured Larson as wearing a black, green, and silver costume, as opposed to her now-iconic Jamie McKelvie-designed red and blue flight suit. As the pics began making the rounds online, some Marvel fans chose to voice their confusion as to why the character had yet to look like the re-invented Captain Marvel made popular by comics writer Kelly-Sue Deconnick and artist Dexter Soy back in 2012.

Fear not, true believers, as Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has recently spoken with Vulture about the nature of the photos, and wants to put your minds at ease as to what you can expect when Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel makes her MCU debut.

In referring to the leaked images, Feige told Vulture that “If you want to film out in public — and Captain Marvel has a lot of scenes that will be shot on location — it’s gonna happen. Most people are savvy enough to know they’re looking at a behind-the-scenes photo, completely out of context. So we don’t do things like rush photos,” the Marvel mastermind added.

Feige continued to speak on matter by elaborating on what the "early days" Captain Marvel costume means for the character, as well as the film's plot.

“We released some concept art of her with different colors,” Feige stated. “People online have correctly identified what’s going on there.” Perhaps what Feige means to say is that the plan is for Carol to sport her original Kree military uniform before exploding onto the scene while dressed in her present-day gear. Think of it like this: You know how Tony Stark is continually upgrading his Iron Man suits? Think of Carol's red and blue garb as Captain Marvel 2.0.

For the moment, whether it be in her Kree-inspired suit or otherwise, fans will have to wait (presumably) until AVENGERS 4 to see Larson appear on-screen as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel. In the meantime, there's still plenty of kickass fanart of Larson sporting the Jamie McKelvie red and blue design circulating the web, which should be enough to get you through until all is officially revealed.

CAPTAIN MARVEL, directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, with a screenplay by Nicole Perlman, Meg LeFauve and Geneva Robertson-Dworet is scheduled to arrive in theaters on March 6, 2019.
