In 2019, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will finally bring its fans a female-fronted superhero movie with Captain Marvel. And now we’re getting a peek at what that’ll look like, thanks to these shots of Brie Larson in costume as Carol Danvers.
Some fans were confused by the color scheme. As Captain Marvel’s colors are typically red, blue and gold, they were expecting something more like we saw in this concept art.
But others were quick to explain that her ’90s-set origin movie might be showing an evolution to Captain Marvel’s signature look.
Few people suggesting maybe it's an initial Kree version of the suit and then she'll get her own colors later. Considering the #CaptainMarvel movie is set in the '90s, that's totally possible.— Alisha Grauso (@AlishaGrauso) January 25, 2018
In the meantime, others are stoked that the MCU didn’t feel the need to make Danvers’s costume some ludicrous objectification-fest with tit windows. And video game developer/aspiring conrgresswoman Brianna Wu broke down the logistics for this motorcycle gear look.
1/ THREAD: Know how everyone praised Wonder Woman for the Amazonian costumes based on real armor?— Brianna Wu (@Spacekatgal) January 25, 2018
I ride a sports motorcycle. @brielarson’s costume is based on genuine top shelf motorcycle armor, the best protection for say, hitting ground at 80 mph. Let me show you the details https://t.co/NhXoQaeJzs
2/ See these boots? The ankle is one piece going up to the mid calf with thick armor. This is to protect your foot from breaking if you hit the ground. Also, kneepads are built into the legs, something you only get when the best protective gear. pic.twitter.com/H10V1dTP3H— Brianna Wu (@Spacekatgal) January 25, 2018
3/ Also, she has armor in shoulder - not on top but on the side, where you would hit the ground. It also looks like she has a spine protector built into the back.— Brianna Wu (@Spacekatgal) January 25, 2018
It looks like real leather too. Leather is one of the best materials for protecting you from abrasion, IE road rash pic.twitter.com/yBW28BPA9X
I can’t even handle how accurate this armor is. Compare it to the real thing. THEY EVEN ADDED INDIVIDUAL KNUCKLE PROTECTION TO THE GLOVES! pic.twitter.com/AIryRNsty7— Brianna Wu (@Spacekatgal) January 25, 2018
Captain Marvel will hit theaters on March 8th, 2019.
