Captain Marvel’s (Brie Larson) look didn’t change as much in Avengers: Endgame after the character made her high-flying debut in her own standalone movie, Captain Marvel. However, Carol was almost supposed to appear with longer hair in the second entry in Joe and Anthony Russo’s two-part Avengers movie.

Marvel Studios EVP Victoria Alonso just recently spoke about Marvel’s different secrets in Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel. During her interview with IGN, the Marvel Studios producer revealed that there was actually initially a hesitation on her part to change Carol’s hair again for the film, because it had already had slight changes between Captain Marvel and the beginning of Endgame.

“That haircut was a conversation.” Alonso said in her discussion with IGN, “And I was against it for a while because I was afraid that people had just met her and had just realized who she was and then we were changing her hair. And I thought, is it too soon? But clearly, it wasn't.”

In the middle of the film, Carol gets much, much shorter hair, one which reminded fans of her iconic look in the comics. Though there were some who weren’t quite fond of the new look, many were excited to see Carol Danvers rocking the haircut that had been immensely popular in the Marvel comic book universe.

Right now we’re not quite sure if Carol is going to stick with her pixie haircut when she returns in another film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or whether she tries out another look. Let’s wait and see.

Avengers: Endgame is currently screening in cinemas.
