Earlier this year, comic book movie fans were formally introduced to Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers in both Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. While Carol’s MCU costume is fairly faithful to its comic book counterpart, it could have been more of a departure. Marvel Studios concept artist Andy Park recently shared an alternate Captain Marvel costume that incorporated some of the suit’s design elements. However, it also made a few small, but significant changes to Carol’s signature outfit.
Park posted the costume on his twitter account, and you can see his post below.
One of my 1st design passes I painted up of Captain Marvel over 3 years ago. Wow time flies! Usually in doing character designs they’re always standing firmly on the ground. It was a breath of fresh air to design her flying for a change. #captainmarvel @brielarson pic.twitter.com/TcmxoBcKas

Perhaps the biggest difference between this design and the final costume is the open collar, and the slightly plunging neckline. It also incorporates Carol’s sash, which is a holdover from her days as Ms. Marvel. The designs for Carol’s gauntlets are also a bit bulkier than they are onscreen.
Park is currently Marvel Studios’ Director of Visual Development; and he’s had a hand in bringing several iconic hero designs to the big screen. Park is also a comic artist who has worked on Tomb Raider, Uncanny X-Men, and other titles.
What do you think about Park’s alternate design for Captain Marvel? Should Marvel have ultimately gone with this costume? Let us know in the comment section below!
