During an interview with CinemaBlend, Captain Marvel directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck shared their thoughts on the fan calls to have Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers team up with Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie.
Almost immediately after the release of Captain Marvel, several fans began calling for Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers and Tess Thompson’s Valkyrie to join forces or even become romantic partners. While the two heroines worked together during the showdown against Thanos and his forces in Avengers: Endgame, their screentime together was minimal at best. While there is no official word on what the future holds for Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers and Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, Captain Marvel co-director Ryan Fleck noted he agrees with the fans who want to see the pair team up:
“There’s been a lot of… look, I have no idea what the plans are for the future. But the speculation online about Carol and Valkyrie teaming up, I think, is a pretty cool, pretty cool idea.”
Co-director Anna Boden also expressed her fondness for Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, adding “She’s one of my favorite women of Marvel.”

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
