Larson made her way into the MCU with 2019’s Captain Marvel. The film depicts her character, at first known as Vers, a member of the Kree military who doesn’t know where she came from. After crash-landing on Earth in 1995, Vers discovers that she’s actually Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot taken to Hala after obtaining superhuman abilities.

Carol learns some of this on her own, but the pieces come together when she meets Maria Rambeau. Maria and Carol worked together and were best friends, with Maria’s daughter, Monica, referring to Carol as “Auntie Carol.” Maria doesn’t have a significant other, and Monica’s paternity isn’t addressed.

Carol Danvers doesn’t have a love interest in the film

Unlike in the solo films of Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America before her, Carol Danvers doesn’t have a traditional love interest in her movie. One of Captain Marvel’s co-directors, Ryan Fleck, told ComicBookMovie.com that “there was no room for any romantic storyline.” And Larson agreed.

“The great love story in this movie is her best friend,” Larson said in an interview with news.com.au. “That’s her long lost love. And I can’t think of anything that is more powerful to me than the girlfriends in my life. To get to imbue what that experience is really like [in the movie] felt powerful,” she explained.

While many felt that Maria and Carol were, in fact, lovers, it doesn’t seem likely that Marvel will broach the subject retroactively. With the MCU action now decades past Captain Marvel, some fans have Carol’s future love interest picked out — and she approves.

“We’re here to ship, y’all!” Larson of the proposed romance between Carol and Valkyrie, Tessa Thompson’s Asgardian character. She made this announcement at ACE Comic Con in 2019, and it was met with thunderous applause.
