Concept artist Aleksi Briclot has revealed a drastically different look for Brie Larson's Carol Danvers that could have graced screens in Captain Marvel.
Briclot unveiled the design on Instagram, which pays tribute to the early green and white aesthetic the Kree took in Marvel Comics. In addition, we see Carol rocking a more military-based helmet with the Hala planet logo in the torso, truly reflecting the classic look that the species had when they debuted in 1967, thanks to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
Briclot, however, streamlines his approach to give it a modern vibe, and one that's vastly different from the green and black scheme they'd end up rocking on the big screen in Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden's film. In the movie, the final designs were to paint a more covert and camouflage-based aesthetic that the Kree needed to go on various intergalactic missions.

Another exploration for Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel as Terran/Kree elite pilote. The color scheme (green and white) and the Planet logo right in the middle of the torso are refering to the first classic look of the Krees. My goal here was to propose a modern take on that. - #captainmarvel #marvelstudios #mcu #marvel #marvelcinematicuniverse #digitalillustration #digitalpainting #caroldanvers #characterdesign #kree
As cool as these look, the white color scheme definitely would have stood out and been counter-intuitive to the way Carol, Jude Law's Yon-Rogg and company operated. That said, Briclot's design is very true to the old source material, and perhaps is something we can yet see as Carol ended the film promising to wage war on the rest of the bloodthirsty Kree militia.
