Brief Synopsis:
An amnesiac Kree Starforce operative with mysterious powers, discovers her true past and slowly learns that her emotions can set her free from the shackles of those she once considered allies.
Intention:
To make Carol more likeable. A lot of people had an issue with anti-male sentiments in this movie. Some people didn't notice it, but for other people it stuck out like a sore thumb. My intent is to apply ointment to the sore thumb of this movie. To give it some love and allow love to reflect back out. Sorry about the silly analogy, but I am a girl and I didn't feel empowered by this movie. I feel much more empowered by strength through love, and so I tried to take the movie in this direction. Emphasis on emotions and friendships.

I also received a request to remove Fury losing his eye due to a scratch. He still gets scratched, but I made it a point to show his eye healed afterwards in a mid credits scene. Since Goose is in Fury's office, it is still possible he gets scratched by Goose again so if people like that part then it can still have happened after the events of this movie.

Editing Details:
Removing music is hard. Don't do it unless you really have to!!
When cutting two shots together, motion is important. I felt this was important when removing Carols stupid scream. If I had not got the movement right, that cut would have been very jarring.
Cuts and Additions:
Colour graded entire movie to reflect Carol's emotional state.
Added visual effects to reflect when Carol's implant was subduing her powers.
Switched Carol and Yon Rogg door scene, to a deleted scene of Yon Rogg teaching children.
Trimmed train scene due to redundancies in the dialogue caused by teaching scene.
Removed Carol needlessly insulting her Kree colleague.
Inserted deleted scene showing more upbeat and friendly interaction with Kree colleagues.
On skrull ship, during memory search, cut some parts where she was obviously being 'put down by men'.
Removed Carol screaming at skrull. it was stupid.
Removed 'cockpit' comment on skrull monitor.
Turned 'Ma Bell' into radio static and distortion.
Removed Carol telling Fury "you finally asked a relevant question"
Removed Biker "how about a smile?"
Removed Fury and 'Keller' looking under autopsy blanket.
Removed "noble warrior heroes", the way she said it was too smarmy.
Removed Carols smirk and "huh" just before the "welcome wagon" in the pegasus facility.
Inserted flashback to memories of Goose when they meet up with Goose in the corridor.
Inserted a few relevant flashbacks when Carol is studying the files on the crash.
Replaced Yon Rogg/Ronan scene with deleted scene of 'Keller' talking about tracking the plane.
Re-inserted Yon Rogg/Ronan scene midway through the scene in Marie's house so as to make it feel like she was there longer.
Inserted a shot of 'Goose' at the cut back to Marie's house. (from stock footage)
Inserted some warm memory flashbacks when Carol is looking at old photos....
Inserted an unpleasant 'memory' of the 'Skrull' shooting Lawson, just before there is a knock on the door, to introduce more tension.
Inserted scene of Yonn Rogg talking to supreme intelligence to show just how intimidating the supreme intelligence can be.
Removed Carol saying " reached blah blah altitude" and inserted a reminder of her and Maria's relationship.
Changed scene of scanning goose and fury, so it says "human" instead of "human male".
Reduced volume of "come as you are". it just seemed way too loud to me.
Removed memory of bike crash and baseball. these seem to serve only to suggest "she's clumsy because she's a girl". extended the gocart clip just to pad this out for the dialogue.
Completely replaced montage of "Carol standing up because she's realised she's allowed to" with a montage of "Carol reflects on her friendships and realises her emotions give her strength".
Removed "just a girl" and replaced it with "violet" by 'Hole'.
Removed horrible effects shot of carol falling towards the ground. It was just ugly XD
Removed Carol's line to Yon Rogg "I have nothing to prove to you".
Removed Talos' reaction to Goose scratching Fury's eye. Now it is not indicated that This is the cause of his lost eye.
Removed Maria's line asking Fury about his eye.
Removed final scene to reinsert it as a mid credits scene
Mid credits scene features part of a deleted scene of Fury walking to his office with both eyes intact.
Obligatory edit of the end credits.

A solid edit that finds the "feels" within this movie!

I didn't hate the original, but I still found it one of the few obviously flawed MCU entries as it was more "fun" than engrossing. This edit unfolds in a more natural way, skipping needless parts of shallow mystery setups to stay focused on a theme of empathy and an overall better introduction of Carol! Lower Quality inserted scenes were barely noticeable.

Great work!

Tremault has single-handedly saved one of the worst and most indifferent films of the entire MCU with this edit. Obviously, nothing could be done about Brie Larson’s smug face, but thanks to some very clever cuts, Carol Danvers comes off as a much more likeable character than she originally was. And she actually has an arc! She is no more the all-powerful being kept at bay by mere deception. She now has to unlock her true potential through human relationship and, I have to say, the montage which establishes that is brilliantly done by the editor.

But more importantly, this edit gets rid of one of the worst MCU jokes ever; Fury losing his eye by an alien cat! It’s ridiculous and, sadly, that’s a new standard in latest MCU additions. So, thank you for that, Tremault! Just some food for thought if there’s ever an updated version… You can, maybe, further improve that with some scene rearrangement; having Fury cursing and Rambeau asking him if he’s okay just as Yon-Rogg fires against their plane, pass it off as some kind of injury because of the hit.

Technically, all changes are well-done, and I could only spot two minor things: First, the added scenes were of a slightly lower-quality, but that’s to be expected, I guess. Secondly, the whole sound mix during the newly orchestrated Violet scene is a notch louder than it should be, I think, but I would take that instead of that in-your-face “Just a Girl” soundtrack any day of the week! Finally, I must confess that I wouldn’t mind if a couple more jokes were missing, especially when it comes to Fury, keeping him more in line with his older self. But that’s just me, wanting a more serious experience with my superhero films.

All in all, this is a vast improvement over the original and a must-see!

Fantastic edit! I am one of those people that hated captain marvel mainly for its 'subversion' of how Nick lost his eye, the overly preachy annoying Hollywood Feminism (men bad & women have no flaws at all) making Carol unlikable and bland, as well as bad pacing and jokes. Thankfully tremault has tackled most of these issues making Carol feel more likeable, the main theme is more focused and feels more tidy and like a actual mcu movie. The inclusions of the deleted scenes are welcomed as well as a much better colour grading. Another part I loved about this edit was replacing the fight song 'just a girl' which just didn't fit the action and was just cringy. I also appreciate trying to fix the whole Nicks eye thing so that this movie doesn't gives its stupid answer and instead still lets the viewer theorise. In general, this edit is fantastic and my go-to version.

A Fantastic edit of Captain Marvel! I never really liked the original, and this edit addresses most of the flaws I saw in that original cut. While still not a top tier Marvel movie, this edit really does all it can, and brings the movie up from mediocre at best to actually pretty good. My only critique of the edit itself is the lack of 5.1 audio. Audio and video cuts themselves are done well, and aren't really noticeable unless you have experience with the film and know what to look for.

Again, this is a fantastic edit, and I will be using this cut for all of my future MCU watch-throughs!

Captain Marvel has always been a very middle of the road MCU film, a simplistic Phase 1 style film stuck in the much more nuanced Phase 3. There were never any major plot related issues with the film like there were with other not so good entries (looking at you 'The Dark World') only moments that pull you out of the film in order to directly tell the audience something rather than just trusting their own film to do so.

This edit makes no massive changes to the plot, unlike some, instead tidies it up in a way that feels like a actual MCU editor would. Additional, some of the other changes, such as the subtle colour grading, do a better job at informing the story than the original ever did. What it does do it reframe the story relating to family (the Kree supplied family vs the found family on Earth) rather than a loner muddling her way through a story which is bound to play in better with the sequel which will be about the Marvel family.

Technically the edits are integrated as well as can be expected from a home level of technology and very few changes stand out in any way unless the viewer has a forensic level of familiarity with the original. There's occasions where there's drops in the sound mixing but it's not really something that can be got around without the raw filmstock.

Plus, two of my suggestions made it into the edit so there's that.
