Brie Larson’s Green Captain Marvel Costume Is Now Comics Canon

I think it goes without saying that many of the comic book readers among us – myself included – first encountered a gateway of some sort before embracing the literary medium itself. In other words, there was probably a movie or animated series that made you fall in love with a certain character, thus causing you to dive deeper into the lore.

No doubt being aware of this, we’ve seen a visual synergy created by Marvel since their cinematic universe took off, allowing for superheroes appearing in comics to look more like their counterparts on the silver screen. Of course, this practice has indeed paid off for them, with Captain Marvel being the latest to join the party.

By now, you’re likely aware of the outcry whenever new set pics taken from the Brie Larson-led flick surface online. Basically, diehard True Believers want to see the familiar red, blue and gold color scheme, rather than the green that’s been witnessed.

Regardless of how you feel about her threads, Marvel has now injected this element into its latest crop of comics, as we can see in an interior page taken from Infinity Countdown: Captain Marvel #1 (below). Displaying Carol Danvers’ costumes from throughout the ages, the suit made (in)famous by the upcoming blockbuster is prominently featured.

Of course, there’s no guarantee of how much we’ll be seeing of those duds on the printed page going forward, but it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if Carol were to receive a change in wardrobe around the time her movie drops.

For more, be sure to check out Infinity Countdown: Captain Marvel #1‘s synopsis:

Carol Danvers has crossed the borders of reality itself and returned in possession of the Reality Stone…and with it has contacted the Marvels of many worlds! Join the Captains Marvel for a cross-time adventure into the nature of the Infinity Stones!

This book, written by Jim McCann and illustrated by Diego Olortegui, arrives in comic shops next Wednesday, May 30. The Captain Marvel movie, meanwhile, debuts in theaters on March 8, 2019.
