Fans have witnessed Peter Parker and Mary Jane’s relationship blossom in Spider-Man: Far From Home. However, it seems like there’s another romantic plotline that’s could possibly be touched upon in Spider-Man’s life.
A new theory suggests that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man might be developing a “schoolboy crush” on Captain Marvel in the sequel for Larson’s character, Captain Marvel 2. Cheat Sheet came up with this theory based off of We Got This Covered’s rumors regarding Tom Holland appearing in Captain Marvel 2 or Captain Marvel 3.
WGTC says Kevin Feige wants Spider-Man to be in the upcoming movie because of its potential “bottom line.” Cheat Sheet’s theory was mostly based on Spider-Man and Captain Marvel’s short interaction in Avengers: Endgame. Where Captain Marvel arrives in the midst of the final battle, and gets the Infinity Gauntlet from Parker.
Of course, if it’s only based on that short encounter, this is obviously a stretch but the site points out that Peter Parker actually went on a date with Carol Danvers in the Ms. Marvel #47 comic. It was a complex relationship, and the date went poorly because some unfortunate events kept happening. It ended well though because Parker found out about Danvers having feelings for him with the help of Venom.
As always, this is only a theory that is based on a rumor so it could be very unlikely to happen. Regardless, it could cause quite a division from the fans considering Captain Marvel’s mixed reviews on the character and the actress, Brie Larson, herself. With that said, we advise you to take these rumors with a grain of salt and wait for official announcements regarding Captain Marvel 2, as well as Tom Holland’s next movie following his return to the MCU.
