Yesterday, we brought you the first look at Brie Larson in costume as Captain Marvel. However, the pictures left many scratching their heads, as her uniform has a completely different color scheme than the one used in the comics. Traditionally, Carol Danvers wears blue, red and gold. But the released images show her clad in green, blue, and silver.

Now, we think we know why. This is reportedly an origin film, taking place sometime in the 1990s. And the origin of Danvers’ powers is a Kree known as Mar-Vell. The Kree are a warrior race of beings much stronger than humans. And the uniform of a Kree fighter is – you guessed it – green and silver. And they have blue skin. So it seems likely that, in the beginning of her hero days, Danvers chooses to model her costume after the source of her incredible power.
How it will eventually evolve into her traditional look remains to be seen. But it will at some point, based on released concept art. In the meantime, though, we’ll get to see how she encounters Mar-Vell, his choice to endow her with Kree strength, and how she learns to use her new abilities for the greater good. Also, ostensibly, we’ll learn how she will one day join the Avengers, and get involved in the fight against Thanos.
