The recent The Marvels trailer dropped this April, and the MCU fans still dissect every second of it. Captain Marvel will finally feature fully in one MCU movie after Captain Marvel in 2019, while Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan will transition from TV to big screens in this cool mini-crossover. We know some details about The Marvels movie; one of them was the rumor of Captain Marvel getting married. So who is Captain Marvel’s potential husband in The Marvels, and did she get married in the comics?
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel never married anyone, and her closest relationship was with Maria Rambeau, Monica’s mother, in the first Captain Marvel movie. In the comics, Captain Marvel almost married Prince Yan, but eventually, he married Tica, which prompted his parents to abolish the strict rule of men’s marriage. Carol’s most important relationship was with James Rhodes, also known as War Machine, with whom she had the strongest relationship, but they never married.
We will discuss this topic further by mentioning Captain Marvel’s character in the MCU, the rumors of her getting married in The Marvels, and some Marvel Comics lore of Carol Danvers. If you are interested, stay with us until the end.
The rumors suggest that Captain Marvel will get married in The Marvels
Carol Danvers, also known as Captain Marvel, is slowly becoming the most important character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For years, fans wanted to see Captain Marvel in action, and Infinity Saga seemed like the perfect time for Carol Danvers to enter the universe. However, she briefly appeared in Avengers: Infinity War (hinted in the post-credit scene), and she came in Endgame. Captain Marvel movie was released in 2019, but it mostly revolved around Carol Danvers’ origin story in the 1980s and 1990s, when she met Nick Fury.
Her role in the Avengers assembling was impactful but never truly displayed in the MCU. We saw her in the post-credit scene of Shang-Chi, and the Ms. Marvel TV series, which is part of The Marvels movie, that we will watch in theaters in November of this year.
Fans are excited since this movie will allow Carol and the other Marvels to shine on the big screen and see Captain Marvel in action after many years. Regarding personal relationships, Carol Danvers’s most meaningful relationship was in the Captain Marvel movie with Nick Fury and, more importantly, Maria Rambeau.
These two colleagues from the Air Force quickly became best friends, and they were so close that some fans speculated Carol and Maria were more than that. However, their relationship stayed platonic in the MCU. Another important person in Carol’s life is Monica Rambeau, Maria’s daughter, who absolutely adored the quirky pilot when she was little.
After defeating Yon-Rogg, Carol Danvers decided to use her powers to protect the galaxy and population endangered mostly by Kree. She left Earth and didn’t return until the Snap, which erased Nick Fury and Monica Rambeau, among billions of others. During the five years, Maria Rambeau died of cancer, which we discovered in the WandaVision series when Monica returned after the second Snap by Hulk.
Maria died, and Monica was obviously mad at Carol for not being there with her friend. Of course, we never found out what Carol was really doing in space, which will probably be revealed in The Marvels, but as of now, Captain Marvel doesn’t have a husband, nor has she ever married anyone.
The mysterious casting choice of Park Seo-joon, a Korean actor we saw in the successful movie Parasite, got some fans speculating that he will be Captain Marvel’s husband in the movie. Specifically, he will portray Prince Yan, but we never got the confirmation which character he will be in The Marvels, and we will probably wait and see what will happen with this character.
Nevertheless, we can safely say Captain Marvel never married anyone in the MCU. Carol Danvers of Marvel Comics has a better record in dating, so let’s see if she ever got married.
Captain Marvel never married anyone in the comic, but she currently has a meaningful relationship with Rhodey
Captain Marvel had multiple versions, with Mar-Vell and Monica Rambeau being the most notable ones, but they never married. Carol Danvers had few relationships in the comics, especially when she was still Ms. Marvel; Carol dated multiple people, including Michal Barnett, who Mystique killed in the 1970s.
There was one disturbing story in the 1980s where Ms. Marvel gave birth to Mark Immortus’ child, and they later fell in love, but Marvel Comics actively wants the fans to forget that story. Let’s just say it’s more than disturbing.
Other relationships include Simon Williams, known as Wonder-Man, and relatively recently, as Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers is romantically involved with James “Rhodey” Rhodes, also known as War Machine. Their romance was heavily implied in the comics just before the Civil War II comic book event, which saw Rhodey mortally wounded by Thanos.
His demise was one of the biggest catalysts for Civil War II since it heavily affected Carol Danvers and Tony Stark’s relationship. That whole event was a journey, but eventually, Rhodes actually survived his almost demise, and they continue to be together to this day – despite her killing his best friend.
Will that romance be canon in the MCU? Probably and hopefully not, since the actor’s age gap is just too big for the romance to work – Carol and Rhodey are almost the same age in the comics.
