Kevin Feige Explains What’s Going On With Captain Marvel’s Green Suit


Ever since Brie Larson was confirmed as the MCU’s Captain Marvel (aka Carol Danvers), fans have been desperate for that first shot of her dressed up in her super suit. That happened just a couple of weeks ago, and the reaction from some quarters wasn’t exactly glowing. The reason? It was green!

Everyone knows that Captain Marvel wears red, blue and gold, and displaying the restraint and open-mindedness that they’re famed for, nerds immediately took to Twitter and Reddit to express their disgust, calling the suit “god-awful,” a “crime against humanity,” “ripped from Power Rangers” or, worst of all, that it “looks like Green Lantern is no longer the worst Green Lantern movie anymore. Thanks Marvel!”

Possibly rolling his eyes as he did so, MCU supremo Kevin Feige explained in an interview with Vulture what’s going on:

“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. Everything is filmed nowadays, so years ago, we decided, ‘If it’s gonna happen, let it 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.”

He went on to tease that the studio has already “released some concept art of her with different colors. So people online have correctly identified what’s going on there.” It sounds to me like those who theorized that this green suit is merely an early version of her costume, something supported by the color scheme of the original Captain Marvel, Kree warrior Mar-Vell, were correct. And it sounds like as the movie progresses, she’ll transition into the classic colors we all know and love.

In the meantime, I’m sure the more anal MCU fans will move onto something similarly important, like moaning about how many buttons Thanos has on his boots or that Ant-Man’s wearing the wrong kind of gloves.
