ComicBookMovie.com got to sit down with Captain Marvel directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and ask them outright when Carol Danvers' didn't have a romantic storyline.
And they finally actually bloody answered, while also addressing fans' hopes for Carol to be gay, bisexual or queer.
This is what they said:
"That was one of those things when we were in the writing stage, and the sky was the limit and the movie could be anything, we were discussing: 'Are we going to get into any type of romantic relationship with this character?' It wasn't like there was a philosophical opposition to pursuing that storyline; it just came down to real estate in the story we were telling. We knew we were telling a story of self discovery and we wanted friendship, and her friendship with Maria, to be a huge part of that.
"There was no room for any romantic storyline for us. I know people have made their own conclusions about that and I think that's part of the fun of making these movies is that they become the audience's movies and they get to create any kind of narrative they want for what's happening off the screen. For us, as storytellers, it's a friendship and a story about that and self discovery."
