Here's why Captain Marvel is wearing so much makeup in 'Avengers: Endgame'

After a full week of sales, Endgame has presold nearly twice as many tickets as Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Avengers: Infinity War, Aquaman, and Captain Marvel put together. While Brie Larson sported a casual makeup-free look in Captain Marvel, she practically looked like she was going to a party in Avengers: Endgame, wearing smokey eye makeup, dark lipstick, and a strappy black top.

Some fans suggested this makeover was a lowkey form of sexism.

Now co-director Joe Russo and Larson are speaking out about why Danvers' look changed between films. Russo went on to say, "That's part of the reason that we gravitate so strongly towards these event films and these ensemble films is that the notion that you can contain so many different characters, and so many different points of view, and galvanize them around a story point is really compelling to us". And according to Russo, she and her makeup team were the ones who created this makeup-heavy look. "Every hairstyle that Scarlett Johansson has had and every movie that we've done has come from Scarlett Johansson", explained Russo.

For golf fans it is a dry spell that is hard to comprehend and for Woods one he admits he never saw coming. You can get on one of these hot rounds and make up some shots, like I did in '05 against Chris [DiMarco].

What happened: At the "Avengers: Endgame" press junket last week, Russo told iO9 that though he and his brother Anthony offer suggestions for their actors, the actors usually choose their characters' looks themselves, and Captain Marvel's "Endgame" look was largely Larson's idea.

"We shot ('Avengers: Endgame") first, so I had to stumble and figure out who this character was with no script for this and no script for "Captain Marvel' and perform for the first time in front of legends", Larson said. And they began asking why, when she's likely to be the most powerful of all the Avengers, would she need to have been made up.

"We have nearly everything in this movie that we shot..."
