Though Captain Marvel ultimately wore her "mohawk" helmet in her solo film and Avengers: Endgame, she almost sported a much different look.
Marvel Studios Director of Visual Development Andy Park posted an image of initial costume and helmet designs, which looked to be a little less faithful to the comics than the one that appeared on screen. "Some of the early costume & helmet design passes I painted up during preproduction of Captain Marvel. Figuring out her helmeted look was especially a fun challenge. This was before attempting the mohawk look," he explained in the caption.
