Annette Bening Reveals Her Captain Marvel Role, Shares New Clip!

It seems like Marvel Studios had Annette Bening assured that no snipers would be going after her as she has been found unhesitatingly blurting her Captain Marvel role out.

Ever since Bening joined the cast roster of Captain Marvel, the Marvel fandom has been speculating about her role in the upcoming March 8 release. The movie’s second trailer gave us our first look at her mysterious character, and later, she even featured in a poster, but the studio refrained from revealing the character’s identity.

But during a recent visit to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Bening has finally revealed who she is playing in the Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck flick. And as many fans suspected, her character is indeed the Kree artificial intelligence known as the Supreme Intelligence. According to the 60-year-old actress:

I’m playing the Supreme Intelligence who is a god-like entity, the leader of the Kree people, the artificial intelligence which consists of the greatest intellects of the Kree people for the last million years.

Annette Bening also brings a new clip from Captain Marvel on the late-night CBS show. The 40-second-long clip shows a conversation between Bening’s Supreme Intelligence and Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers, who is referred to here as Vers, as the former prepares the latter to serve in her Star Command unit.

During the interview, Bening also reveals that she had to seek help from her kids to make sense of the Captain Marvel script. At one point, Colbert asks whether she had any prior knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at the time of signing up for the role or she had to learn everything later. Here’s how she responds:

I had some basic knowledge (of the MCU) having watched the movies and enjoyed them. However, when I read the script, I did find it slightly confusing. However, I took into my confidence, and the confidence of the entire Disney corporation, two of my kids, who I then told the story to and asked them to please explain to me what the hell was going on.

The four-time Academy Award nominee adds that everyone would be able to understand why the script seemed confusing to her once the movie hits the theaters. But one shouldn’t worry about the plot being convoluted as the critics, in their brief social media reactions, have heaped praise on the first female-led MCU installment. Here are some of the reactions!
