Russos Explain Captain Marvel’s New Look in Avengers: Endgame

What happened: At the "Avengers: Endgame" press junket last week, Russo told iO9 that though he and his brother Anthony offer suggestions for their actors, the actors usually choose their characters' looks themselves, and Captain Marvel's "Endgame" look was largely Larson's idea.

Chris Hemsworth says's he'd be "more than happy" to remain on in his Marvel Universe role as Thor after Avengers: Endgame.

"Personally, I'm actually gonna try to enjoy the experience at the premiere", Captain America Evans says, while his co-star Scarlett insists most of the stars only know how their characters close out the movie.

"We empower them to have control over their characters because they need to be comfortable playing those characters". And I think as she started to gain a deeper understanding of the character, especially as she approached her own movie.

Therefore, going in to Captain Marvel Brie Larson's changed how she looked to match her evolved image of the character and that's why she looks different in the two films. She started to make different choices and as an artist she should be afforded that right to make whatever choice that she wants to make. "We shot this first so I had to stumble and figure out who this character was with no script for this and no script for Captain Marvel, either, and perform for the first time in front of legends".

Apparently some people were up in arms that Carol Danvers appeared done up in Avengers: Endgame, and that such a look didn't fit with her feminist character. Fans expect story threads to pop up in "Endgame" that will indicate where the MCU goes next in what is being called "Phase Four", although Feige and other Marvel executives will not speak about the next wave of films until after "Endgame" premieres. We imagine this is what Larson was thinking when her and her team came up with the heroine's appearance for the movie.

Concern about Carol Danvers and her makeup choices in Avengers: Endgame vs. Captain Marvel shouldn't be shoved to the side, but it also makes me question my own stance on the matter.
