Nine Inch Nails comprised an important piece of the costuming for Captain Marvel, and now the band is teaming with Marvel for a new shirt. The band’s official website has released a shirt iin collaboration with Marvel to commemorate the film’s release.
The black and white shirt features the NIN logo in the middle of a Hala star, which is the symbol of the Kree empire and a major part of Carol (Brie Larson)’s uniform in the film. When not seen wearing her uniform, Carol is mostly seen wearing a classic grey-on-white NIN logo.
The listing for the shirt reads, “Marvel approached Nine Inch Nails about doing a collaborative T-shirt in celebration of the release of Captain Marvel, in which Carol Danvers proudly displays a NIN shirt throughout the film. This item will be available for a very limited time on the NIN.com store.” It will run you $25 and will ship the last week of March.
Costume designer Sanja Milkovic Hays told Pop Sugar about the decision to use the NIN shirt, “There was a lot of back and forth [about which band would go on her shirt], because we thought about the music, but we also had to look at the logos. We looked at some logos of bands, and some of them are very busy and colorful and stuff like that, so even though their music could be appropriate for the character, it would be too distracting from her face. But Nine Inch Nails was kind of sweet and subtle. It’s there, but your eyes don’t keep going down, dragging your attention from her face.”
