Behind the scenes

  • Kevin Feige stated the decision to cast Annette Bening came very late, as they were still intending to cast a male actor shortly before filming began. Feige attributed Bening's casting to Anna Boden's decision to make the Supreme Intelligence take on Mar-Vell's appearance, stating "it was like, 'Oh, of course! That's perfect!' And we stopped looking for another actor."


  • In the comics, Mar-Vell was a Kree male and Captain of the Imperial Kree Army war hero. Arriving at Earth, Mar-Vell disguised himself as Walter Lawson, researching the human race. Eventually, Mar-Vell turned against Kree Empire and became the original Captain Marvel.
  • Mar-Vell is the fourth character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be depicted as a different gender from their counterpart in the comics, following Jeri Hogarth, the Ancient One and Ghost.
