I love stories like this. Predicting what might happen in an upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie is always great fun, and there’s a recent bit of theorising to do with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man which has popped up on the Internet which tickled me a bit.
But what really stuck out to me was a small section in the article in which the journalist – Christain Bone’s his name (good name by the way) – wrote the following:
“Peter briefly met Captain Marvel at the climax of Avengers: Endgame, when Carol came to take the Infinity Gauntlet off him.
“He seemed pretty in awe of her at the time and it’s worth mentioning that the two actually dated in the comics.
“Obviously, the age difference between the MCU versions would make this a little weird but they could still nod to it by giving Spidey a schoolboy crush on her,” he finished.
Will Tom Holland’s Spider-Man really crush on Captain Marvel in the MCU?
I love what Christain’s getting at here. He’s referencing a moment in the comics when Peter Parker and Carol Danvers had a bit of a thing.
This happened in issue 47 of Ms. Marvel. Peter and Carol went on a date in that issue, but it didn’t go so well.
things just kept on happening which prevented their date from going well, and yet it ended well for Peter because he found out that Carol did indeed have feelings for him thanks to Venom of all people.
Now, I highly doubt this will happen in the movies. The Ms. Marvel comics are very different in tone to the current MCU movies, yet they could still give a little nod to the fans by having Peter have a crush on her in one of the movies.
I can see Peter getting all flustered around Captain Marvel, and it would be rather amusing to see happen. He was clearly taken with her in Avengers: Endgame, but then again, so was everybody else around.
She’s awe-inspiring and terrifying in equal measure. Thanos was clearly worried about whether he’d be a match for her, and the two of them had a good old brawl.
Do you think that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will have a bit of a crush of Captain Marvel in an upcoming MCU movie? Let us know in the comments below.
