Early Captain Marvel Art Reveals Crazy Different Design for Carol Danvers

Early concept art for Captain Marvel reveals a much more alien design for the hero's Kree pilot suit.

Posted by concept artist Aleksi Briclot on Instagram, the suit was intended to appear very alien so that Carol Danvers' very human face, when revealed, would surprise the audience. "Here I was trying to hide the human root of the character like it’s looking like an alien and then Tadaaaa," he explained. "It’s a human face! With Brie Larson feature!"

This suit is darker, bulkier and more intentionally alien looking than the one appearing in the movie. There is little doubt that this wildly different design would have evoked the kind of surprise from the audience that Briclot wanted. The design that ultimately appeared in Captain Marvel never attempted to disguise Danvers' humanity, though the film did make it a point to highlight the conflict within her.
