Later on Saturday, Chambrone, the man who got down on bended-knee, took to Facebook in an open letter and explained why he choose to 'ambush' Larson with the proposal.
First he thanked her for making herself available to her fans, then he apologized for for the ambush.
He then went on to say how Carol Danvers has been his 'favorite character in the comics' since he was a kid.
'From her debut as Ms. Marvel, through her Binary and Warbird years and finally full circle as the mighty Captain Marvel, I have followed her adventures and your portrayal of her was so on point! I met Richard earlier this year and once our eyes locked for the first time, we both knew we found our soulmates.'
