Valkyrie's (Tessa Thompson) cameo in The Marvels led to some speculation that the King of New Asgard may have been romantically involved with Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), and the movie reportedly cut a scene that would have confirmed that they are (or were) in a relationship.
In the Captain Marvel sequel, Carol calls on Valkyrie to help relocate some Skrull refugees, and the scene they share certainly seems to suggest that they are very close. It doesn't outright confirm anything, but there is clearly a strong emotional connection there, and Valkyrie plants a kiss on Carol's cheek as she departs.
Now, Can We Get Some Toast has revealed several moments/plot points that were filmed but didn't appear in the final film (some of which were shown in the trailers), and it seems the movie was originally going to make it very clear that Carol and Val were "explicitly together."
Apparently, either Danvers or Valkyrie was going to say "we work better as friends" during the scene, but Marvel Studios decided to remove the dialogue and leave things more ambiguous.
Check out the Tweet below to see what other scenes didn't make the cut.
"The Marvels is far from the best Marvel Studios has to offer, but it's difficult not to get swept up in its infectious energy... to a point," we said in our review. "A disjointed third act lets it down, but a game cast and plenty of fun/funny moments elevate it above more lacklustre MCU fare (we're looking at you, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumnia)."
"In Marvel Studios’ The Marvels, Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as The Marvels.”
