It's an exciting time for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The studio is currently riding the wave of Black Panther's massive box office and critical success, and the future looks especially bright as well. The next installment in the MCU will be the highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, which will unite almost all of the main characters from the past 10 years of movies. Afterward, female heroes will finally get their day with Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel. The latter stars Brie Larson, and fans recently freaked out when set photos revealed the hero in a green suit. But it turns out they shouldn't worry, at least according to Visual Development Supervisor Andy Park. He recently said:
I think it's always funny seeing people's reaction... People are so ready to jump on and to react and make decisions so quickly. I would just say I would hope that they would just know from the past that judging too quickly is... How do I word this? They're going to be happy. I think they're going to be happy. I mean, Kevin Feige said it in an interview. We revealed the concept art that I did, myself and other artists did, of Captain Marvel at last year's San Diego Comic-Con, so I mean, I think that alone should hopefully alleviate some of those fears that people have.
Without explicitly confirming it, it seems that Andy Park believes that the diehard comic fans are going to be happy with Captain Marvel's costume when she finally debut in the MCU. Translation: the red and blue suit is coming.
Andy Park's comments are sure to be a relief for the comic book purists out there. While superhero movies always make a ton of money at the box office, there are particular challenges that come with adapting the source material for the silver screen. One of these potential roadblocks is the sky high expectation of comics fans, who often judge how closely the movies adhere to the original pages. So when a photo of Carol Danvers was released with a green suit, the community blew up.
Now appears that the green Captain Marvel suit may only appear for a brief while, before she eventually finds the traditional red and blue. In his conversation with Comic Book, Andy Park cited the Captain Marvel concept art that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con this past year. That suit was the traditional red and blue, which Park specifically points to. The MCU knows the tradition of the character, and we should probably wait until Captain Marvel arrives before we begin ragging on its inaccuracy. If the MCU wasn't going the traditional route with the costume, they wouldn't have revealed the concept art for the look.
