Endgame Art Explains How Captain Marvel Costume Combines Decades of Looks

With the mantle of Captain Marvel having existed within the Marvel Universe decades prior to the character's big-screen debut, Andy Park -- Director of Visual Development at Marvel Studios -- recently discussed how the studio's concept artists incorporated ideas from the source material in order to engineer their own take on the character for Avengers: Endgame.

"Finally I can show this! Here’s the approved concept design I did for Captain Marvel in Avengers: Endgame," park wrote on Instagram. "I loved designing her original look in her solo film earlier this year. And what a blast it was to revisit her design trying to envision what her modern day look over 20 some years later would look like. I did a ton of different options.

It was a fun exploration."
