Nearly a month after leaked set photos revealed star Brie Larson in a Captain Marvel costume that wasn't exactly what fans anticipated, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has addressed the pitfalls of filming in public, and what the images really show.
Speaking with Vulture about the women of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Feige said the studio understands that, "If you want to film out in public — and Captain Marvel has a lot of scenes that will be shot on location — it’s gonna happen,” referring to leaks.
"Most people are savvy enough to know they’re looking at a behind-the-scenes photo, completely out of context," he continued. "So we don’t do things like rush photos." He also dropped a hint about what the suit means for the film's plot.
"We released some concept art of her with different colors," Feige said. "People online have correctly identified what’s going on there." That's likely acknowledgement that Carol Danvers will wear a Kree military uniform before she dons the more familiar red-and-blue costume.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a screenplay by Nicole Perlman, Meg LeFauve and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, DeWanda Wise and Ben Mendelsohn. The film is set to hit theaters on March 6, 2019, from Marvel Studios.
