By now, chances are you’ve seen Captain Marvel, and have at least a basic understanding of how that movie ends. If you haven’t and you care about spoilers, it’s probably best that you stop reading, or forever be spoiled by the fact that Carol Danvers doesn’t die in the movie, and that she leaves Earth at the end. That’s right. I just jumped right into that, and refuse to take the blame.

Anyway, by the end of the movie, Carol has learned to embrace her more emotional side. Additionally, she learned that she had nothing to prove to the likes of Yon-Rogg, and as a result, awakened her true potential. Her next mission? To help free the tons of other planets out there who don’t have their own Captain Marvel, and at the end, she flies off. But it turns out the original ending was slightly less satisfying.

“It used to end with Carol flying off into space alone, and I found that a bit jarring. Like, where exactly was she going? And what was she doing,” editor Debbie Berman said in an interview with ET. “It felt like we needed a stronger visual to assert a more specific justification for her leaving and disappearing for so many years. So we added Talos and his family in their spaceship waiting for her, and they all fly off together.”

So, it’s not a huge thing, but I agree it certainly helps things out. As someone who likes closed boxes, it does leave a lot less to the imagination and allows us to fully understand who is where and when. As a narrative, it just comes together much nicer, in my opinion.

But what do you think? Does that minor change add anything for you? Let us know down below!
