The Marvels was officially announced as the sequel to the 2019 Captain Marvel soon after its release. The film is set to release next year and with the release date coming closer, the internet is filled with rumors and theories about what may happen in the upcoming sequel. And one of these rumors involves the South Korean actor Park Seo-joon. Although the actor is reportedly listed in the cast of the film, his character is still not specified. While some rumors claim that he would be portraying Amadeus Cho, others suggest that the Parasite star will be starring as Prince Yan.
In comics, Yan is the prince of Aladna, a planet where people speak in rhyme and songs. The character first appeared in Captain Marvel #9 comics alongside Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel. His origins are not confirmed in comics as well and it is believed that he is a human, who was adopted by the Aladna people.
Captain Marvel to Marry Park Seo-joon in The Marvels
New rumors revealed something interesting about the relationship between Park Seo-joon’s character and Carol Danvers in the upcoming film. The Be With You star, who is expected to make his MCU debut in 2023’s The Marvels, continues to draw attention. Previous rumors suggested that the South Korean actor would star as Prince Yan of Aladna in the MCU.
A new rumor related to The Marvels has suggested Captain Marvel will be married in the upcoming film. According to scooper Daniel Richtman, Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers will be married to Park Seo-joon’s character, Prince Yan.
The rumor of Aladna, a planet where people communicate via singing, aligns with the earlier rumors that suggested the sequel will have a singing sequence. The news could come as a surprise to Marvel fans, as the 2019 film faced criticism for having some anti-male elements.
Fans have been discussing if that could be the reason why the studio decided to marry off Carol Danvers in the sequel. They are even asking if the Endgame star is capable of singing. The studio has not confirmed anything yet, but it would sure be interesting to see Captain Marvel warming up her vocal cords.

Prince Yan and Captain Marvel’s Relationship in Comics
In comics, Prince Yan of Aladna seems to have a number of admirers. The teleporting mutant superstar Lila Cheney, who briefly visited Aladna in comics, gets engaged with the Prince due to Aladna’s practice that only women can choose their partner.
However, when she returns to Aladna years later, she was asked to marry the Prince, even when neither of them wanted the marriage to happen. In order to stop the wedding, Lila Cheney brings Carol Danvers to Aladna to object during the wedding ceremony.
However, Marlo, a cruel alien who always wanted to rule Aldana, crashes the wedding and challenges Lila Cheney for to fight for the Prince’s hand in marriage. Captain Marvel takes the stand and challenges Marlo instead of Lila. She also wins the battle against her and was appointed as the bride of Yan Aladna.
After this, Danvers gives Prince Yan the advantage to choose his bride to avoid the possibility of him losing the crown if he refused to get married. Tic, Lila Cheney’s friend, volunteered to become Yan’s wife.
The Marvels is set to release on 28 July 2023.
