Jude Law has shed some light on his connection with the Kree Supreme Intelligence in the upcoming Captain Marvel.
During a Q&A with members of the press, Law hinted at the connection between his character and the Intelligence, saying, "each of the Starforce, indeed each of the Kree warriors, has a particular relationship with the Supreme Intelligence, and my character has a very particular relationship with the Supreme Intelligence which becomes revealed and is quite complex and ultimately very revealing of what it is that motivates him. I've kind of based him almost on... not a religious fanatic but he's got a sort of Divine sense of purpose because of his relationship with this greater being."
Law was recently confirmed to be playing Yon-Rogg in the film, despite speculation that he would be playing Mar-Vell. However, regardless of which character he's actually playing (or if they've been combined into a single character for the film), his role as a leader of the Kree Starforce will put him in direct contact with the Supreme Intelligence.
Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the Supreme Intelligence is an artificially created life-form that typically dictates the whims of the Kree Empire. He's been a consistent presence in Marvel Comics, playing major roles in stories like The Kree/Skrull War, Operation: Galactic Storm and Infinity. This also confirms his appearance in the film, and his overall importance in the grand scheme of the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as the commander of Starforce, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, and Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Algenis Perez Soto, McKenna Grace and Annette Bening in as-yet-undisclosed roles. The film arrives Mar. 8.
