Brief Synopsis:
The Supreme Cut takes Captain Marvel's origin story and improves upon it by giving Carol Danvers a more defined character arc, from struggling Kree warrior to one of Earth's Mightiest Heroes - an Avenger
Intention:
My biggest issue with Captain Marvel is how she starts the movie as a bad ass, literally knocking her mentor on his ass in the first scene we meet him, and only ends up becoming more bad ass in the end. We're told in dialog that Carol can't control her powers, but we never actually see her out of control? Yon Rogg is supposed to be a mentor but is blatantly sinister pretty early on, leaving no doubt behind that he's not so secretly the villain. Thankfully, a handful of cuts and some added deleted scenes really help to give both Carol and Yon Rogg more interesting characters from the very beginning.
Additional Notes:
Unlike other Captain Marvel edits, I have kept the origins of Fury losing his eye to Goose in tact. I know people hate it, but I don't want to change continuity. The Supreme Cut still maintains perfect continuity with the greater MCU.

Cuts and Additions:
List of Changes:
- added Fan Edit warning before opening
- completely new opening sequence. Flash backs of adult Carol's life in the military set to the song "Kiss Me Deadly", which plays over the Marvel Studios logo, before transitioning into a shortened dream sequence from the theatrical opening.
- removed Carol asking Yon Rogg to train. I never liked that she initiated their training (and proceeds to knock him on his ass in the first scene he's in). I attempted to make Yon Rogg feel more like a mentor and less obviously like a villain.
- added deleted scene of Yon Rogg explaining the Kree/Skrull war to Kree children.
- trimmed the sparring scene (Carol does NOT use a photon blast).
- trimmed first scene with The Supreme Intelligence, removed expository dialog about the Skrull threat.
- readded the shot of the Skrull in Carol's fake memory, initially cut from the first version of this edit.
- added deleted scene - "Heading to Torfa"
- trimmed Skrull memory search flashback scene, since the flashbacks with Monica are moved to the earlier dream sequence.
- do to cutting the photon blast in the opening sparring match, the first time we see Carol use one is when she is breaking free from Skrull capture. Now when she accidently blasts a hole in the wall and almost gets vacuumed into space, we get the sense that she does actually have difficulty controlling her power.
- cut Talos' line "This one's taken." After the Skrulls land on Earth
- trimmed Yon Rogg lines telling Vers to stay put, making him seem more genuinely concerned.
- added Agents of SHIELD theme motif over the introduction of Agent Phil Coulson
- added deleted scene - Carol steals a motorcycle
- trimmed Skrull autopsy scene to remove Talos' eulogy, saving the reveal that he is a Skrull for when he calls Fury "Nicholas"
- trimmed more Yon Rogg lines
- added deleted scene - Talos in disguise in the SHIELD aircraft hanger
- added soundtrack from Interstellar - "S.T.A.Y." by Hans Zimmer, when Carol discovers the truth about her origins and the Kree
- added deleted scene - Yon Rogg communes with the Supreme Intelligence
- extended soundtrack - "Come As You Are" by Nirvana, it now plays slightly longer through the scene
- trimmed the flashback montage of Carol rising, cutting the youngest version of her.
- soundtrack change - replaced "I'm Just A Girl" with "Bad Reputation" by Joan Jett. It just fits better. Don't like Captain Marvel? Too bad.
- minor trims during space fight against the Kree
- removed soundtrack from Yon Rogg's final confrontation, in turn removing the comedic hard cut in the music.
- replaced the soundtrack with another track from Interstellar - "Mountains" by Hans Zimmer
- added "Cornfield Chase" from Interstellar to the final scene between Carol and Monica, echoing STAY from earlier and giving them a motif.
- removed mid-credits scene tying into Infinity War. (I imagined this Supreme Cut as being part of Phase One)

This one both thrilled and saddened me. Because at only two minutes shy of the Theatrical runtime, Marvel had a considerably stronger introduction to their first solo lady superhero. Trimming away almost exactly as much noodling around as there were deleted scenes of personal character beats, with a tighter pace and what feels more like a building and growing arc, rather than a mystery we all knew the answer to anyway. From now on, THIS is the version I'm watching and recommending to everyone who believe Carol Danvers deserved better.

Having watched another two edits for this movie, I can safely say that this is the best one. All the others are mostly trying to tone down Denvers and make her less obnoxious, which is fair and I agree, but Josephdquinn took it a step further and actually improved the pacing and the plot.

I really enjoyed the new introduction to the character and the way he made Yon-Rogg be a legit good guy until the revelation towards the end of the film. With the way he is presented here, you can't tell that something is wrong with him. In this subject though, I'm suprised that the editor didn't remove the "eulogy" from Talos, which reveals to us he is a Skrull, to the dead Skrull after Fury left the scene with the autopsy. I know that when Fury finds out it's not much later, but still, it is much more clever to have the audience find that out alongside Fury when Talos calls him Nicholas, instead of blatantly say it to our face at the autopsy scene. Give the viewers some credit Marvel, we are not stupid!

Technical-wise it was perfect, all the cuts were seamless. Well done!

For me, the movie is salvaged, still though not one of the better ones of the MCU, but I can happily now rewatch it in any future Infinity Saga marathons. So, I most definitely recommend this edit and I bet this will be your go-to version of the movie.

Thank you Josephdquinn for all your hard work and thanks to anyone who read my review!

6 months later, I've read your review again and decided to see how it would look if I were to cut the "eulogy" scene with Talos. I've decided this is the way to go! So in my most recent update, that scene is removed! Thanks for the suggestion!
