Brie Larson has made headlines again, but not for what fans might expect. Following the release of the first trailer for “The Marvels,” the actress found herself answering an unexpected question about her wardrobe. A curious Twitter user asked what type of bra Larson was wearing in the trailer, and the actress provided a detailed response.
Larson explained that her bra was a “Chantelle US t-shirt bra (with an extra strap stitched in),” and added that it was a “whole team effort.” She credited Rebecca Higgins for engineering the beauty we see on screen. The conversation about Larson’s bra quickly went viral, but it sheds light on the attention to detail that Marvel Studios pays when it comes to costuming their characters.
Ensuring that Carol Danvers’ costuming on-screen is just right has been a priority from day one. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that in an early meeting with Larson, the two agreed that they would be forgoing the overly-sexualized suits that Danvers initially wore in the comics. Much consideration was even put into Larson’s casual looks in the first Captain Marvel too.
Costume designer Sanja Milkovic Hays explained to British Vogue how they arrived at Danvers’ grunge, ’90s look, noting how adorning Danvers adorned in a Nine Inch Nails t-shirt reflected the character’s personality. The fact that so much attention was paid to even the smallest costuming pieces, like a bra, in production for “The Marvels” bodes well for fans excited about Carol’s upcoming suit upgrades in the film.
As seen in the post-credit scene of Ms. Marvel, Carol’s standard Captain Marvel suit will be slightly different than it was in her past appearances. Beyond that, the trailer revealed an entirely new suit as well, meaning at least two costume upgrades for the character will likely happen by the end of the film.
Ultimately, it is clear that much attention was paid to the smallest details in the costuming for “The Marvels,” be it with a cropped tank top and bra or with a super-suit designed for a powerful hero. The film is set to hit theaters on November 10, and fans can look forward to seeing all of the intricate details that Marvel Studios has put into the production.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
