Role in "Avengers: Endgame"

In "Avengers: Endgame," Captain Marvel had a significant impact in the final battle against Thanos, notably destroying his ship. She was also noted for her shorter haircut when attending a virtual meeting with other Avengers.

Fan Theory on Haircut

Theory Origin

A Reddit user speculated on why Carol Danvers cut her hair short. Initially, she had long hair when she responded to Nick Fury's pager in 2018. Following the Snap and a five-year gap, she appeared with a short pixie cut in "Avengers: Endgame," and later, with long hair again in the mid-credits scene of "Shang-Chi."

Connection to Maria Rambeau

Maria Rambeau's friendship was central to Danvers in "Captain Marvel." In "WandaVision," it was revealed that Maria passed away in 2020 from cancer, and Monica Rambeau discovered her mother's death after returning from The Blip.

Theory Details

The theory suggests that Carol Danvers potentially cut her hair in solidarity with Maria, who likely underwent chemotherapy. After Maria's death, Carol might have retained the short hairstyle in honor of her or because she grew to like it.

Emotional Impact

Maria Rambeau’s friendship helped Carol remember her past life as an Air Force pilot. Carol likely coped with Maria's cancer diagnosis and subsequent death by cutting her hair. Her irritation with Rocket’s sarcastic comment about her haircut could stem from the emotional weight of why she cut her hair.

Future Impact

In "WandaVision," the tension between Carol and Monica was explored and will likely evolve in future Marvel projects. Maria's death will continue to influence Carol’s storyline, particularly in the upcoming "The Marvels."

Upcoming Movie

"The Marvels" will be released in theaters on July 28, 2023. Captain Marvel and all episodes of "WandaVision" are available on Disney+.
