Captain Marvel is currently setting big records at the box office and whilst reaction to the film has been mixed, it’s clear that it’s provided a talking point not only about modern cinema but also at inclusivity as a whole.
Coming in at just over two hours, the film is one of the shortest Marvel movies in recent memories so it’s clear that there’s been a lot left on the cutting room floor, including Yon Rogg and Ronan meeting Captain Marvel and the answers to one of the biggest questions in the film: ‘Who does Yon-Rogg see as The Supreme Intelligence?’
So, I thought I’d put together a breakdown of what the answer reveals and why it was missing from the movie.
This is full spoilers ahead for the film, so if you haven’t seen Captain Marvel yet, you may want to skip this video until you’ve had a chance to watch it.
With that out the way, I’m Deffinition and welcome to the channel where I explain it so you don’t have to.
Captain Marvel Deleted Scene
The Supreme Intelligence plays a big part in Captain Marvel and is pretty much the movie’s big bad. The AI Intelligence is the leader of the Kree and is seen as a God by the Citizen’s of Hala. The Intelligence is manipulative in every way and even takes the form of the person that the onlooker most respects so that it will be trusted.
Similar to The Skrulls, The Intelligence is able to transform to fit it’s needs and this is a big point of contention in the film to the point that it’s even viewed as sacrilege to tell others which form it takes.
One of the big questions that many may have when leaving the film is, ‘Who Does Yon Rogg see?’ Well this question was actually answered in the film in one of it’s deleted scenes.
Who Yon Rogg Sees When He Looks At The Supreme Intelligence
Brandon AUS who worked on the film stated on reddit that:
“An entire sequence I worked on the VFX for was cut where Yon-Rogg has a chat with the Supreme Intelligence before he gets sent to go find Carol and the Tesseract. I am waiting for my art book from the movie to show up to see if they have any of the original Supreme Intelligence concepts in there.”
When asked who Yon Rogg saw, Brandon stated:
“It was himself.”
I actually left the film thinking that this may be the case. Rogg is of course massively self-assured and in his mind, even more powerful than Captain Marvel so it makes sense that this arrogance and ego would carry over into the Intelligence.
Though he never stated why this scene was cut, Kevin Fiege in a recent interview with Comicbook.com said:
“There was only a conversation, ‘We’re telling Carol Danvers’ origin story.’ And this was her origin story, and her origin story was focused on her growth and the female friends and mentors and inspirations around her.”
Many have taken from this that many of the scenes involving The Kree were cut as they ultimately turn out to be the big bad of the film and leaving them in would perhaps make them seem more sympathetic.
It makes a lot of sense and hopefully, this scene will be included on the blu ray and dvd release that is sure to come later this year.
Obviously, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this deleted scene and what you took from it. Are you surprised at the revelation and what other questions would you like answered from the film?
