Marvel Studios Director of Visual Development Andy Park today tweeted out a piece of his concept art for the upcoming Captain Marvel. The image is one of the first high-resolution looks at concept art for the character, the designs for which were kept tightly under wraps until just before the arrival of the film's first trailer.
"I absolutely LOVED creating this design of @brielarson as #CaptainMarvel!" Said Park in his tweet. Take a look below at the striking red, blue and gold image, and uncanny depiction of Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larson.
I absolutely LOVED creating this design of @brielarson as #CaptainMarvel ! Based on the awesome comic book looks by @McKelvie & @kristaferanka It was a pleasure taking those & translating it for the big screen & for the story we are telling on this film. @MarvelStudios pic.twitter.com/4lNWin4Imz— Andy Park (@andyparkart) October 3, 2018
Park credited fellow artists Jamie McKelvie and Kris Anka's renderings of Captain Marvel as his inspiration for the character's big screen look. McKelvie redesigned the character for her 2013 transition from Ms. Marvel to Captain Marvel, establishing her now-iconic red, blue and gold costume. Anka illustrated the first issue of her 2016 comeback.
Debuting in theaters on March 8, 2019, Captain Marvel is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, Djimon Hounsou as Korath, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva and Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson.
