It seems that Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel went through several revisions as a new bit of concept art shows an early version of the character with a more casual look.
The image in question came from one Andy Park who has worked as a concept artist for Marvel Studios since Captain America: The First Avenger and has done work for many of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Among these was, of course, Captain Marvel. And we now have an idea as to what Brie Larson’s character could have looked like if Marvel had decided to stick closer to the concept art.
The image in question comes from Andy Park’s official Instagram account. In it, the color scheme for Brie Larson’s outfit remains the same but the upper areas seem to be a bit different. Her neck, in particular, is a bit more exposed, giving the costume a look as if it was originally designed as a more casual shirt with a collar on it.

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 #hero #conceptart #characterdesign #costumedesign #illustration #그림 #캡틴마블 #그림스타그램 #일러스트 #marvel #marvelstudios #avengers #higherfurtherfaster @brielarson
From the look of things, Marvel wanted something a bit more militaristic looking for Brie Larson’s final suit!

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
