Fans of the Captain Marvel comics know that her costume comes with a full helmet, which also pops her hair into a mohawk style. The current promo art doesn't show her with the helmet, and the last few years she hasn't worn it as much in the comics. It appears though that the merchandise will feature it a bit, as Samuel L. Jackson showed off a brand new shirt featuring the look.

This should make Captain Marvel writer Kelly Sue DeConnick quite happy, as she's a big fan of the helmet from her run on the book, and expressed to Variety how much she would love for it to make it into the film.
"I love the helmet! That is not a universal opinion," DeConnick said. "After we left the book, they got rid of the helmet. I have a lot of boring continuity arguments on the history of the helmet and a list of reasons as to why the helmet exists. I want the helmet!"
We definitely second that notion and would love at least a nod to it.
