Brie Larson says she is ‘changed’ after a gay couple got engaged in front of her during comic con.
The Captain Marvel star was taking photos during a meet and greet at ACE Comic Con in Chicago when one fan got down on one knee to propose to his now fiancé.
The images of the proposal have been circulating online and the actress shared the images on Twitter with the caption: “Y’all I was present for a proposal and I am CHANGED.
“Much love to the happy couple!!!”

Larson wasn’t the only MCU star to show support for the LGBTQ community with the likes of Chris Hemsworth holding the lesbian pride flag and Tessa Thompson photographed draped in the bisexual flag.

Although the MCU has yet to introduce an open LGBTQ character, Marvel Studios looks to be set to represent the LGBTQ community in future films.
We currently know that Thompson will be reprising her role as Valkyrie in Thor: Love and Thunder and will be ‘looking for her queen’.
Also, there will be an openly gay character in the upcoming Eternals movie.
