Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have come up with the craziest of theories there ever was to connect events of the MCU together. Nobody thought that there would be a crazier theory than Ant-Man crawling up Thanos’s ass and then expanding, but looks like this latest theory will give that one a run for its money.
Shared by u/Alexandrite1234, there’s a decent bit of evidence to support the theory that at some point in the timeline of the MCU, Peter Quill aka Star Lord(Chris Pratt) and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) dated.
Yeah, we made that face too but listen to the theory before you close the page.
Carol Danvers And Peter Quill Dated Once Upon A Time- A Theory
According to the theory, Pratt’s reference in Guardians of the Galaxy in about a “Kree girl” he was with who nearly ripped his thorax was about none other than Captain Marvel. The supporting evidence with this is the existence of those goofy Trolls dolls at unique points throughout the MCU. At the tail end of Guardians of the Galaxy, Quill tricks Yondu (Michael Rooker) with one and coincidentally enough, they’re also located in Mar-Vell’s space lab hovering outside of Earth.
There is a span of about 18 years between the end of Captain Marvel and beginning of Guardians of the Galaxy, so here would be plenty of time for the two to meet up at some point in their adventures across the cosmos.
While the theory does seems good, but there are holes in it like Swiss cheese. The first one is that Carol Danvers isn’t technically a part of the Kree race. She has Kree blood but she’s human through and through. One could counter that with an misunderstanding on Peter Quill’s part, though. Maybe she had mentioned she had just left Hala and Peter assumed that she was a Kree. The second one is the odds that those two have actually met.
If you like the thought of them dating then go ahead with it! But it’s a little hard to digest the fact that Carol would identify herself as Kree after all the incidents which happened in Captain Marvel. Also the fact that she would date Peter Quill of all the men in the universe is just preposterous.
Captain Marvel is now available digitally ahead of a home media release on June 11th. You can also see both Captain Marvel Carol Danvers and StarLord Peter Quill in Avengers: Endgame, which is out in theatres now.
