Michael beat me to the punch - This image alone makes me think BIG meets SUPERMAN.

And count me in with the group who thinks too much padding is too much. I much prefer the more subtle padding other heroes get. This looks like an expensive halloween costume, not something you fight in.

That being said, this is then a terrible choice to make as a first release photo since it would take minimal photoshop work to turn this into a scene wherein underaged Billy has used his "BIG-"style transformation to buy himself and his pal some alcohol from the local liquor store.

HAHA.....I already thought it DID portray that image, then I read your comment and went back to realize thats a case of Cola, not beer.

Just like the comics, they took a great costume (uniform) and completely messed it up. They've gone from timeless to awful.

Looks fine to me.  Certainly better than what they did to Superman.

They certainly could have adapted this version very easily -

And yet still recognizably Captain Marvel.

Look, I get it... do I wish he looked EXACTLY like he did in the original comics?  You bet!.  But I can live with this version... provided, of course, that the final product is a fun, modern, well-made interpretation of the comics.

They still have a long way to go, admittedly!
