Long before we ever had a trailer, the first glimpse any fans got at Brie Larson in costume as Captain Marvel came during Marvel Studios’ panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2017. For over a year, fans shared blurry photos taken from the Hall H screens. Now, we have a high-quality image of one of those pieces of concept art, courtesy of the person who created it.
Marvel Studios Director of Visual Development Andy Park shared his fantastic design for Captain Marvel while crediting Jamie McKelvie and Kris Anka, the comic book artists who inspired the MCU iteration of the character.
“This costume design was actually really challenging to achieve in reality (all costumes are),” says Park, “but the amazing costume designer Sanja Hays, her talented costumers and Film Illusions did an outstanding job in taking my concept design and making it a reality on the amazing Brie Larson! So much hard work was put into this and I’m so proud of our whole team. I can’t wait for everyone to finally see this film!”
Andy Park and the entire Captain Marvel team nailed this costume, which may be the closest page-to-screen adaptation of any superhero since Richard Donner and Christopher Reeve’s Superman in 1978.
