The Marvels Should Show Us Why the Kree Changed So Much in MCU

The upcoming few projects from the MCU are mostly going to be sequels. We are going to see some major characters return and continue their solo journey along with certain appearances from other MCU characters. These will ultimately lead to some of the other major events in the MCU that might see these individual heroes team up again. But the upcoming sequels might actually pave the way to provide some clarity regarding some things that were left out as major plotholes. It has been quite a while since we last saw Captain Marvel appear in her solo movie. That movie showed us a different side of the Kree which was not exactly what we had witnessed in Guardians of the Galaxy. So, in The Marvels, we should get to see why the Kree changed so much from the events of Captain Marvel to Guardians of the Galaxy.

Captain Marvel

Carol Danvers, played by Brie Larson, made her debut in MCU with her solo movie that was set before the ongoing timeline. Even though the narrative was set in Phase 3 it managed to serve as a prequel to some of the most interesting events in the cinematic universe. The movie manages to take us to both the universal aspects and at the same time some of the things that were happening on Earth. Guardians of the Galaxy came before this movie and it was the first time that we got to see things from the universe being brought up in MCU. But Captain Marvel actually predates the events of James Gunn’s movie by nearly two decades.


According to Captain Marvel, the Kree are no longer at the center of the massive cosmic wars. They’ve signed a peace treaty with the Nova Corps instead. Around the end of the movie, we got to see the titular hero make a massive threat. Carol sends back Jude Law’s Yon-Rogg to the Kree planet of Hala but with a warning. She states that she would soon return to deal with the Kree and also work on the Super Intelligence’s lie. This actually is quite different from what would later happen with the Kree in their appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy.


Why the Kree Changed So Much?

The different ways in which we saw the Kree work out in Captain Marvel and Guardians of the Galaxy are actually quite significant. Only Captain Marvel’s sequel can end up giving us a clear insight into what actually happened with the Kree. MCU is known to work rather secretively and it was rumored that we might get to see Jude Law reprise his role as he would be taking part in the sequel. That would make sense considering the last time we saw Captain Marvel and the Kree together, they had a conflict between them. Considering the alien race stood by till the events of Guardians of the Galaxy means that Carol and the Kree worked on it before the events of The Marvels.

Why the Kree Changed So Much

It has been confirmed that the upcoming sequel will be set in the modern-day MCU. That would make sense considering the movie will see appearances from Monica Rambeau, since we last saw her in WandaVision, and Kamala Khan, following the events of her solo Disney+ series Ms. Marvel. But even then we can see the Kree plot being explored using a flashback sequence in order to clarify things. This might sound like a lot for a movie that will be dealing with three major superheroes, but it could just be a plot point on a side note. If it is clarified in this movie then fans will have a clear answer to this query and it would make sense considering it was created following the end of Captain Marvel.


Another possible way would be to introduce the Kree as a threat in the movie and then explore their history with Carol. There is a clear chance for making some interesting moves with this narrative considering her work at Hala could have created certain enemies who might end up appearing in the modern-day. Thus we could see the trio of superheroes dealing with a past event that might have been triggered by Captain Marvel herself.


The Marvels will be released in theaters worldwide on February 17, 2023.
