After years of anticipation, Captain Marvel fans waiting for any scraps of information about the upcoming movie finally got a glimpse of Brie Larson's Captain Marvel costume. And it is...teal?

This flies in the face of Captain Marvel's established red, blue, and gold look, which has been pretty much the same since Marvel relaunched the series in 2012. However — *pushes up nerd glasses* — diehard comic fans have already pointed out that the green could be a nod to the original Captain Marvel, aka Mar-Vell, who wore a green suit before he switched it out for a red and blue one more similar to the one Carol Danvers wears as Captain Marvel. Mar-Vell is definitely going to appear in the movie and will be played by Jude Law. The movie is also set in the 1990s, so she could still end up in her iconic red and blue later on in an Avengers movie. (It's not even clear which movie Brie is filming in these photos — it could be Captain Marvel, the fourth Avengers, or even some kind of secret post-credits stuff for Avengers: Infinity War)

In other Captain Marvel news, Brie has also been suiting up in an Air Force uniform, presumably because Carol Danvers is an Air Force pilot when she's not fighting off bad guys in space. How many Ant-Mans do we have to sit through before this comes out?
