In the MCU, I ship Carol and Marie more than Carol and any dude. Although Carol/Thor would be okay, I guess. (Then again, I'm fairly happy that MCU Tony seems to be pretty serious about making his relationship with Pepper work. One of the better changes to the character, in my opinion.)Except for how much the MCU draws from the Ultimate Universe.
Agreed.In the MCU, I ship Carol and Marie more than Carol and any dude.
I'm a big fan of a movie without any kind of romance imposed on a plot. I'd be fine if there's just chemistry between Carol and anyone but it doesn't get explored. I mean, I'm not a he-man macho supers fan who thinks romantic plots are pointless, but I'd rather they're organic. I even did not mind the Natasha/Bruce implications, but what made me happiest was that it was an interest, not an actuality. Lots of room for stories where people don't have to hook up even if they would think about it. (Like, Natasha and Sam Wilson, or Nat and Cap ... well, Scarlett Johansson gets a lot of roles because she has chemistry with most people.)Agreed.
That said, I kind of liked the total lack of an overt romantic subplot in Captain Marvel. OTOH, if there was chemistry between Carol and Thor (or Carol and anyone else in Endgame) I wouldn't mind seeing that play out.
