Fans unfamiliar with the comics were baffled at the sight of the first set photos from Captain Marvel, which showcased Carol Danvers in green armor instead of her iconic blue/red costume, while fans familiar with the comics instantly knew what it was: a take on the classic green Kree battlesuit. Speaking to Vulture, Marvel Studios honcho confirmed what those latter fans thought the costume was:

Feige also addressed the prospect of seeing more set photos from the Captain Marvel set, revealing that the production will film several scenes on location (meaning in public places) as opposed to filming in a studio.
If you want to film out in public — and Captain Marvel has a lot of scenes that will be shot on location — it’s gonna happen,” he said. “Everything is filmed [by paparazzi] nowadays, so years ago, we decided, ‘If it’s gonna happen, let it happen.’
As with many superheroes before her, a costume change in an origin film is practically a tradition at this point. We all saw how Captain America jumped from goofy propaganda spandex to a utilitarian army uniform and how Tony went from a suit made out of scraps to The confirmation from Feige that the green outfit is a Kree uniform is another tease that the scenes being filmed were indeed set during the 90’s.
