Brie Larson’s next outing as Captain Marvel in The Marvels comes amidst a struggling period for the MCU.

Supreme Intelligence was the original leader of the Kree in Captain Marvel and never appeared in its true form in the film. Instead, Supreme Intelligence took the form of Mar-Vell, played by Annette Bening, to communicate with Carol Danvers.

Supreme Intelligence To Return In Brie Larson’s The Marvels

The Marvels trailer provides audiences with significant details, the most notable being the antagonist of the film, Dar-Benn. This character, played by Zawe Ashton, is a Kree leader determined to seek revenge and destroy Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers. It is assumed that Carol Danvers was engaged in a war against the Kree in the 1990s, following the events of the first film.

Interestingly, the newly released teaser trailer features a scene where Carol Danvers is obliterating a machine of sorts, and fans speculate it to be the true form of Supreme Intelligence. Captain Marvel failed to address this specific robot-like aspect of the original Kree ruler, opting not to make a big spectacle out of the supervillain. However, at the end of the first film, Carol Danvers promised Jude Law‘s Yon-Rogg that she would “come to end it”.

Several fans on X have pointed out this surprising detail. Some were excited about the depiction of the comic book-accurate version of the supervillain in the movie, while others have developed some wild theories. The wildest theory suggests some sort of connection between Miss Minutes in Loki and the Supreme Intelligence. Some fan reactions read:


Besides Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris, and Iman Vellani also return to their roles as the cosmic superheroes in the film directed by Nia DaCosta.

Will Supreme Intelligence Have A Significant Role In The Film?

Zawe Ashton’s character, at one point in the trailer, addresses Carol Danvers as ‘The Annihilator’, leading fans to speculate that this is because she killed the Supreme Intelligence. Furthermore, the Guardians of the Galaxy film confirmed that Supreme Intelligence was no longer the Kree ruler. These pieces of evidence suggest that the scene in question is a flashback sequence and may be the only sequence featuring the villain.


Moreover, the annihilation of the Supreme Intelligence might have triggered Dar-Benn to wage a war of vengeance. Interestingly, Dar-Benn was gender-swapped from the comics to create a female-led cast for the movie. However, the pre-sales figures for the movie are looking rather disappointing, and it is also the shortest movie in the MCU.
