A lot of fans were left disappointed after seeing Annette Bening’s Mar-Vell taking the form of Supreme Intelligence in Captain Marvel. In the comics, the appearance of Supreme Intelligence is completely different and quite interesting. As there, we can see a giant green head floating in some kind of big glass. But, in the movie, they introduced Supreme Intelligence as a hyper-technological & powerful being. The interesting feature that they brought in is that it could take forms of different people. And because of this plugin, Supreme Intelligence took the form of Mar-Vell. But, there are revelations from the production Designer of the film that that wasn’t the initial plan.
At one point in the film, there were chances of the comic accurate Supreme Intelligence coming in but the idea was dropped later. Andy Nicholson in an interview recently said,
“It came and went. As an idea, it was never rejected. At one stage, it was part of the movie. I’m not the person to say whether or not that will eventually come back in but it was part of it. “It was there. We did develop a line where within that space from the big pool of water in the back of the room, that eventually, that’s where the big green head would come out of.”
“I think eventually for the final scene of the movie, it would’ve taken away from what was the core focus which was, it would’ve been a big spectacle which would’ve overwhelmed the main thrust of what we were doing which was talking about Carol’s development and transformation into Captain Marvel.”
But, we have to say that not having ‘Supreme Intelligence’ in its comic-accurate appearance was a really big miss. But, if you have other thoughts, then do tell us in the comments section down below.
