Comicbook.com is reporting that they were invited to a select tour of their productions on the Disney lot in Burbank, California. Among the items they were able to see were concept drawings from Marvel’s upcoming slate of films. The most intriguing item they saw were the first pictures of Brie Larson dressed up as Captain Marvel. While those pictures have not been released to the public yet, they were able to confirm that Marvel Studios has stuck quite close to the iconic costume you see in the amazing Kelly Sue DeConnick’s run on Captain Marvel.
While I would love to see her in full costume, this is a great consolation to hold me over. I feel it’s great that Marvel is keeping with tradition. From Iron Man on, Marvel Studios has done an amazing job with staying as close as possible to the costumes for their characters that we see in the comics. Changes are made of course, accounting for the fact that most soldiers or fighters wouldn’t be wearing spandex when off saving the world. They’ve given the outfits a realistic look that still pays homage to the originals.
The costume does not make the character of course. Christopher Nolan made changes to Batman’s appearance andyou’d be hard pressed to find someone who disliked those films simply because he wasn’t dressed like the Batman from the comics. Yet straying from the original look of the characters can put up some road blocks for the filmmakers they may not be able to overcome. For every Batman Begins or X-Men, you have a Fantastic Four from Josh Trank which went out of its was to antagonize everyone while making a bad movie to boot.
So what do you think? Are you excited to see Brie as Captain Marvel soon? Could the fifth post credit scene in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 include an appearance of Carol Danvers? Sound off in the comments section below.
