If the latest reports hold true, then Captain Marvel will come out in cinemas a couple of weeks from now with a runtime of 124 minutes, making it one of the shorter MCU flicks of recent years. Once the film arrives on home video, however, you can naturally expect to find a little extra material that didn’t make the theatrical cut, including one sequence that co-director Anna Boden has characterized as kind of bizarre.
The moment came in an interview with Spot.ph, when the Captain Marvel filmmaker was asked if there were any memorable sequences that didn’t make the final cut. At first, Boden struggled to come up with an answer, explaining:
“That’s so hard, ’cause all the good ones ended up in the final film.”
At this point, co-director Ryan Fleck teased that we’ll have to wait until the DVD extras to find out, to which Boden agreed, before adding that there’s one particular scene that could be worth a look:
“That’s true. There’s a really kind of fascinating, bizarre, fun scene that didn’t make it into the final film, but yeah, you’ll have to wait for the DVD extras.”
Incidentally, Captain Marvel is already set to have a home video release unlike any before it, as the first Disney film to stream exclusively on their upcoming platform Disney Plus. In the meantime, however, we’re still waiting to check out the scenes that did make the final cut, though we don’t have long to wait now.
In fact, we’re just one day away from the movie’s social media embargo lifting, meaning we should have a good idea soon enough of what the feature’s first viewers think of Carol Danvers’ solo debut. After that, the review embargo for Captain Marvel lifts on March 5th, before you can finally see Boden and Fleck’s film for yourself when it arrives in theaters on March 8th.
