Captain Marvel was a big-time hit for Marvel at the box office, and now that the film is on home video fans can go through the movie with a fine tooth comb looking for Easter Eggs and other homages to the comics. The home video release also means we can get much better images of the various Easter Eggs, and there were several of them that fans caught during one entertaining sequence between Carol Danvers and Monica Rambeau. The sequence takes place about just over midway through the film, and during it, we see plenty of nods to Carol and Captain Marvel's long history.
After Carol learns how her true origins on Earth and the truth behind Yon-Rogg and the Kree capturing her, Carol decides it is time to ditch the Kree colors. Thankfully that's pretty easy as the suit has a multitude of customization options through a control interface in her gauntlet, and she hands over control of that interface to Monica.
They cycle through a few looks here, and comic fans definitely took notice of several of them, though they would ultimately arrive at the modern Captain Marvel costume that came into play during Kelly Sue DeConnick's run on the character, and it was all thanks to a bet and artist Jamie McKelvie.
It all worked out in the end, but her look would change again in Avengers: Endgame, once more drawing from the comics. If you want to see some up-close shots of all of Captain Marvel's movie costumes, just hit the next slide!

Inspired By: Captain Marvel Modern Costume
Colors: Red, Blue, and Gold.
This is Carol's modern Captain Marvel costume, inspired by Mar-Vell's Captain Marvel costume after he took on the red and blue. The movie reason is that these are the colors that Monica is wearing on her shirt, and thus serves as the inspiration for the new color scheme.

This is a remix of some of Carol's other looks, but it also features a similar design to Phyla-Vell's old suit. It also features the sash from Carol's current costume and even gave her the short hair look that rose to popularity in the comics.
