Captain Marvel released on March 8th, 2019 and changed the entire narrative of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Skrulls Kree war that had been on the back burner in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was suddenly plunged into the limelight. Up until now, the fandom had only received small glimpses of the carnage and hatred between the Kree and the Skrulls and all the other races. We received small indications of the skirmishes and the tensions between the races when Ronan the Accuser sought out Thanos to take up arms against the Nova empire and Xandar. The religious beliefs and other aspects of the war are still up for debate but after watching Captain Marvel we can be sure that the perpetrator of the Kree hate was the Supreme Intelligence.
Supreme Intelligence was introduced in Captain Marvel as the ultimate antagonist who was pulling the strings of all Kree and it was this intelligence that was responsible for the Kree war machine. During the events of Captain Marvel, we see how this war mentality has destroyed the Kree from within and has devolved them into a militaristic nation only seeking war and dominance while waging conflict all throughout the universe.
We got a lot of background to this mentality with the release of Captain Marvel and we could finally understand how Kree became as it did. Supreme Intelligence is a cold and unfeeling villain that must be destroyed. The fans understand that and so does Carol Danvers. Maybe that is the reason why she vows to destroy the Supreme Intelligence in front of Yon-Rogg played by Jude law at the end of Captain Marvel.
There is this new theory on r/Fantheories posted by u/TheReplacer outlining this very incident from Captain Marvel. The poster has some very interesting references to the entirety of the events of both Captain Marvel and Guardians of the Galaxy that connect the movies in the most surprising way. The theory has been reproduced below for your scrutiny, please take a gander and read on for further discussion and analysis of the same.
The redditor focuses his arguments on the final message by Carol Danvers to Yon-Rogg. The protector of the universe and energy manipulator tells the Kree General that she will definitely destroy the Supreme Intelligence and she will free the Kree of her warring mentality. The redditor also argues that Carol Danvers succeeded in this endeavor and this led to her irreplaceably destroying the Kree leadership vis-à-vis the Supreme Intelligence. Now at this point, all of this is not more than mere speculation but you have to agree that the coincidence here is a very curious one.
The facts become even more apparent when you assess them in reference to the events of the Guardians of the Galaxy and the status quo of the Kree in that movie. We witness Ronan the Accuser defecting from the Kree Empire and engaging the empire of Nova on Xandar on a completely independent basis, save for some leadership help by the Mad Titan himself. Now the evidence is the fact that Ronan would never dare take such a step if the Supreme Intelligence still ruled over the Kree Empire.
And this reasoning is bolstered even more so by the fact that Kree and Nova have a working peace treaty in force at the time of Guardians of the Galaxy. Anyone who has seen Captain Marvel can attest to the fact that the Supreme Intelligence would never defect it’s power to a simple peace treaty and this Kree Empire is the product of the eradication of the Supreme Intelligence, most probably, at the hands of Captain Marvel aka Carol Danvers herself.
These facts are in themselves enough to spawn a sequel for Captain Marvel. Pour on it some new characters and you another standalone sub franchise for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is entirely possible that the Captain Marvel sequel will focus on Carol Danvers going up against the Supreme Intelligence and destroying it by uprooting the problem.
If that is so then the story of the Skrulls Kree war will come full circle by Carol Danvers shutting down the Kree war machine. This may even have some implications for Avengers: Endgame but we have too little facts for any speculation whatsoever at the moment.
