Avengers: Endgame featured many stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. People thought Avengers: Infinity War was huge. And before that, Captain America: Civil War held several heroes in one scene. But the final showdown against Thanos was even bigger yet. Characters you would have never thought to cross paths met up. And that was the first time Spider-Man laid eyes on Captain Marvel. When he was in a pinch trying to keep the Infinity Gauntlet away from the Mad Titan, Ms. Danvers lent a hand. Therefore, a new rumor points to Peter Parker having a crush on her in the future of the MCU.
Cosmic Book News brought to light this current rumor. And it really makes sense. This aligns with earlier rumors.
One rumor this aligns with is that Marvel was losing faith in Captain Marvel. Their plans were said to pair the two heroes so to counter-balance the complaints of Danvers’ dry personality. And where they thought to have lost Spider-Man, they were lost with Captain Marvel.
Also, there are the reports that the new Sony/Disney deal has one more Spider-Man movie, and one more team-up for Tom Holland to be featured in. That previous rumor further stated that Kevin Feige was planning on writing Spider-Man out of the MCU to avoid another mishap between Disney and Sony. People thought the additional team-up for Spidey was to be a fifth Avengers film. However, this newest rumor points to him appearing in Captain Marvel 2.
The report claims this would be awakward due to a couple of reasons. First, Spider-Man: Far From Home finally saw Peter hook up with MJ. But it’s only nature for a teenage boy to have eyes for more than just one. Secondly, Peter is just a teenager, and Danvers is close to thirty. But again, this is just a crush. This doesn’t mean that she has to return the sentiment.
There is also another report on this rumor from the fellows at We Got This Covered. They reminded us that we reported on the possibility of Captain Marvel coming out as gay. Therefore, she probably won’t return the sentiment at all.
I also want to note that there’s another rumor that Krysten Ritter would reprise Jessica Jones in the actual MCU. And her character in the comics had a crush on Peter Parker. Don’t know where that would fit in with the whole ordeal. Especially since she’s about the same age as Danvers.
We’ll see where these character developments will play out in the MCU’s immediate future. Spider-Man 3 will arrive on July 16th, 2021. Captain Marvel 2 does not have a release date yet. But Kevin Feige addressed the sequel in his Phase Four announcement at this year’s San Diego ComiCon. So expect that movie sometime in Phase Five. For announcements on these further developments, Screen Geek will have you covered.
