The Directors Shed Light On Why Ronan The Accuser Didn’t Appear Earlier In Captain Marvel
The directors explain why Ronan The Accuser didn’t appear earlier in Captain Marvel.
As far as MCU villains go, 'Guardians of the Galaxy’s' 'Ronan the Accuser' was among the most disappointing of the franchise. When we discovered that his younger self would appear in 'Captain Marvel,' the universe got an opportunity to add depth to his character. However, since we’ve seen his depiction in the movie, Lee Pace’s character was just as forgettable as ever.
Ronan only showed up briefly in the third act of Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) to set off bombs for 'Carol Danvers.' Yet against the might of Danvers, he eventually fends off before vowing to come back, smirking and calling her “ the woman” (ha good one!). There’s really a quite valid justification why Ronan became an afterthought in the film.
Anna Boden: Here we have the Accuser ships that are the kind of bomb squad of the 'Kree.' So we’ve already met Starforce which is like their SEAL Team Six and now we see the bomb squad that’s going to be bombing a Skrull stronghold in the South.

Boden though admitted that they had played a lot with the question of 'when we should introduce Ronan in the movie.'
Ryan Fleck likewise said, “Yeah, I think it was more effective to hold on because it was giving it away too soon that the Kree were the bad guys because everyone associates them with Guardians of the Galaxy and it really just gave away too much too soon.”
While the pair talk about the film on their Blu-ray editorial, they reveal that they chose to hold Ronan’s queue until the end of Captain Marvel so it wouldn’t give away that Kree equaled bad too soon.

If MCU fanatics had seen Ronan interacting with the Kree early on in the film, it would be excessively evident of their side in the battle, particularly since he is so unmistakably a villain in his 2014 debut appearance.
Ronan may not be part of the Kree aggregate in Guardians of the Galaxy since he broke the Kree/Xandarian treaty in the movie, yet his cooperations with characters such as Jude Law’s Yon-Rogg are undoubtedly evil.
'Yon-Rogg' (Jude Law) is presented as Carol’s mentor and friend at the beginning of the film. If we were one step ahead of the entire story, it would not be as convincing of an origin story.
The scenes where Captain Marvel warded off the shapeshifting Skrulls just would not have worked in the event that we were aware of their actual intentions either. Watching the script flip on us halfway through the film just worked better, but unfortunately, Ronan’s role had to be yielded to some extent, therefore.
