We know very little about Marvel's upcoming Captain Marvel. And when I say very little, I mean very little. We don't know what the plot will entail, who is directing the film, who will play the supporting characters, when the film will be released... and this list goes on and on. The only thing fans really know is that the titular character will be played by Oscar-winner Brie Larson. It's a damn good start, but won't Marvel give us a morsel of something else? Well on Monday night, during a tour of Marvel Studios at Disney's Burbank headquarters with reporters, the studio delivered a clue into the world Marvel's first woman-led superhero film: concept art depicting Brie Larson's Captain Marvel costume — and boy is it glorious.
Before I dive into the details, I must say this: the image I saw is concept art, not a final product. Larson has yet to step into the suit (as far as I know), and this iteration of her badass suit could be one of many options. With that said, here's what I saw:
- The suit is mainly blue with accents of red.
- It's form-fitting, and similar in style and material to Captain America's.
- She has a silver star (one with many points, not the classic five-pointed variety) in the center of her chest, and a utility belt slung around her waist.
- The suit has a partial collar that opens in the front.

It's a gorgeous suit, one that matches up with her recent look in the comics, and I can only imagine all the bad guy butt-kicking she'll do in it.
Another detail to note is that the artwork depicts Brie with wavy hair cropped a bit above the shoulder. Again, perhaps Marvel's artists were just trying out hairstyles, but I have a feeling this might be the final look — or one close to it — we'll see on screen. Then again, we'll have to wait until Marvel graces us with a still from the film, a character portrait, a sizzle reel, a teaser, or really anything to sate our need to see more of this superhero.
Hey, Comic-Con is only a few months away, right? Here's hoping that's the finish line.
