THE MARVELS: Alternate Captain Marvel Costume Design Gives Off Serious AVENGERS: ENDGAME Vibes

The Marvels arrived in theaters earlier this month and while Bob Iger is blaming a lack of executives on set for the sequel’s underperformance, there are plenty of fans who enjoyed seeing Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, and Photon share the screen. 

Carol Danvers was decked out in a new suit when we first caught up with her, and the hero later received another thanks to Prince Yann (the good Captain’s space husband). However, that first design was very nearly more in line with what we saw in Avengers: Endgame

As you can see below, the Avenger is decked out in a costume not all that different from the one we saw in The Marvels, albeit with a greater emphasis on the design and colours she was decked out in while battling Thanos. 

“This design went pretty far along in preproduction until it was decided to go with the look from my previous post,” Marvel Studios’ Director of Visual Development Andy Park explains. “This is a 3D model I sculpted of the design to figure out all the elements since it would’ve been made for real on Brie Larson. I had a lot of fun with this!”

When and where we’ll next see Captain Marvel is currently unclear, though Brie Larson has confirmed she’ll reprise the role in the not-too-distant future. Presumably, that will happen in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty (Ms. Marvel season 2 is another possibility). 

Take a closer look at that alternate design, along with Park’s final version, in the Instagram posts below.

In The Marvels, Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe.

When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as “The Marvels.”

The movie stars Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris, Iman Vellani, Samuel L. Jackson, Zawe Ashton and Park Seo-joon.

The Marvels is now playing in theaters worldwide.
