Captain Marvel directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck revealed which deleted scene they wish had made it into the film's theatrical cut.
Captain Marvel features the Kree Supreme Intelligence, which takes the form of whomever is most admired by the person they're currently speaking to. In the case of lead character Carol Danvers, the Supreme Intelligence takes the form of Mar-Vell/Dr. Wendy Lawson. In the theatrical cut of Captain Marvel, Carol is the only character seen speaking to the Supreme Intelligence. However, a deleted scene sees Jude Law's Yon-Rogg paying a visit of his own, which reveals who he admires the most: himself.
"I think the scene where Jude visits the Supreme Intelligence is really fun - I think it's on the deleted scenes - and it's just one of those delicious after scenes where Jude Law is playing both characters and being both brutal and vulnerable in the same space," Boden told CinemaBlend.
"Yon-Rogg, of course he's himself when he visits the Supreme Intelligence," Fleck added.
"Because you see the person you admire the most, right?" Boden continued.
The existence of this deleted scene was actually first revealed on Reddit by one of Captain Marvel's visual effects artists just after the film hit theaters in March. The artist also explained that the scenes in which Carol spoke to the Supreme Intelligence were trimmed down a bit. Boden's statement indicates the scene with Yon-Rogg will be included on Captain Marvel's home video release.
