Why green? We'll give you Kree guesses.
"Captain Marvel" is now in pre-production, with star Brie Larson busy on set as Carol Danvers. She recently shared a photo of her character "Learning how to fly," but the latest photos are not so "official."
The set photos show Carol Danvers in a green suit, which confused some fans who are used to seeing her in red and gold:
I'm sure I'll get over it because it Marvel and I trust them, but my initial thought is I hate the color scheme. That is not Captain Marvel.— Alisha Grauso (@AlishaGrauso) January 25, 2018
Not a fan of that Captain Marvel look at all. I'm sure it'll go through some sort of evolution though.— Sam (@MyNameIsSam1776) January 25, 2018

Few people suggesting maybe it's an initial Kree version of the suit and then she'll get her own colors later. Considering the #CaptainMarvel movie is set in the '90s, that's totally possible.— Alisha Grauso (@AlishaGrauso) January 25, 2018
Yes. Marvel fans can dip into the character's history to try and glean why she's green. It's probably related to the alien species the Kree.
"When the Kree warrior Mar-Vell originally came to Earth, he donned a green and white suit and used the name Captain Marvel. Eventually, he upgraded to the more familiar red and blue costume with the gold star which would serve as inspiration for Carol when she gained similar abilities.
Over time, Carol adopted her black and gold suit that she wore for most of her time as Ms. Marvel, but she returned to a costume inspired by Mar-Vell when she took his mantle as he'd been dead for years. [...]
There are a couple of reasons why Carol might be in this green costume. The simplest explanation is that she snags it from a Kree soldier after gaining her powers. It's hard to guess what Marvel will change or condense when it comes to Captain Marvel's origin, but we do know the Kree-Skrull War will be a big part of the movie. As such, there's a chance Carol will gain her powers during the conflict and then grab a uniform from a fallen Kree warrior as she heads into battle. The other big possibility is that we're seeing Mar-Vell's original suit which gets handed down to Carol."
Here are more reactions, referencing the Kree or just keeping a more positive open mind:
It looks like a prototype costume the government probably has Danvers wear when she first starts her missions as Captain Marvel. pic.twitter.com/PEJniPHdHh— Walt (@UberKryptonian) January 25, 2018

Captain Marvel looks alright but costumes aren't gonna look the best without proper film lighting and colour correction so just chill guys— ellis (@SodieEvolved) January 25, 2018
Wow I didn't know how excited I was for Brie Larson as Captain Marvel until I saw that picture. Wow, I'm so ready for her film— Raymond X (@PeaceLoveComics) January 25, 2018
Marvel has yet to let us down, and we doubt they'll start here. "Captain Marvel" is scheduled for release March 8, 2019.
