It’s easy to see how Maria’s brief appearance in the film is often overlooked. After all, she is surrounded by legendary characters like Black Bolt, Professor X, Captain Carter, and Reed Richards.
While these bigger names may have more notoriety, this Captain Marvel outshines them all – even if she eventually succumbs to the powerful Scarlet Witch.
Canceled designs for Captain Marvel from Earth-838
Direct obtained a copy of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – Movie Art book, and it had a bunch of scrapped designs for Maria Rambeau’s Captain Marvel on Earth-838.
As expected, the Marvel Studios team thought about placing Maria in the character’s classic colors.
While the color scheme remains the same here, her face mask has been expanded to fit this diverse style.
In one of the canceled looks, Marvel Studios attempted to bring back the uniform coloring of the Kree he appeared in Captain Marvel– Which, coupled with the unique face mask, looks exactly like Carol Danvers did.
The color scheme with the most significant difference features a white base with black as a secondary color.
The final design for Lashana Lynch’s hero settled on a contrasting black and shiny silver for her armor and details.
Was the new Captain Marvel design the right choice?
At the end of the day, Marvel Studios made a good decision in giving Maria Rambeau her own unique Captain Marvel color scheme in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
While the other, more common designs are stylish, they would have very quickly made viewers start thinking of Carol Danvers rather than the unique Earth-838 character.
However, it’s worth noting that one of the alternate color schemes is black and white, just like Monica’s new look in the upcoming film. Wonders. Could there be a connection there?
After all, it’s sad to think that given Maria’s death in the main MCU universe, Monica will never get a moment with her mother as a modern superhero. Maybe the multiverse will provide the two with an impossible reunion?
While something like this could happen in… WondersIt is more likely that the hypothetical scenario will not even happen Avengers: Kang Dynasty or Secret Wars.
Wonders It hits theaters on November 10.
