It’s no surprise that Marvel values its secrecy in the face of its millions of fans fervently awaiting each installment of their beloved Cinematic Universe. Even then, it’s not easy to keep details from leaking out, as we’ve seen in the last week regarding the recent official confirmation regarding Jude Law’s role in Captain Marvel.
According to an unconfirmed report from We Got This Covered, they spoke with a source that claimed to be at an initial screening for the upcoming Marvel film, and they had some news regarding one of the biggest questions on fans’ minds: Will Mar-Vell appear in any capacity? Potentially massive spoilers are to follow if this report is true, so this is your last chance to turn away!
This is what the apparent source has to say:
“When Carol encounters the Supreme Intelligence, it projects an image of someone from Carol’s memories to her and that’s who Carol sees the Supreme Intelligence as. The Supreme Intelligence projects itself as someone different to everyone it encounters – think of the Bogart in Harry Potter, only this involves happiness rather than primal fear – but to Carol, it projects itself as a woman who Brie Larson’s heroine thinks is her mom. However, we soon learn that this woman isn’t her mom. Rather, it’s a Kree in disguise who was a doctor on Earth that saved Carol. But this isn’t just any Kree: it’s Mar-Vell, played in this instance by Annette Bening.”
Captain Marvel will fly into theaters on March 8, 2019, leading up to Avengers: Endgame, which will bookend the first decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
