With Avengers: Endgame just a couple of weeks away, fans all over the world have their fingers crossed for the return of their favorite Avengers who were gone with the wind in the last movie. So we thought we would pass the time by remembering some of the best friendships and relationships we have seen grow through the MCU. So, without further ado, here are some of our favorite relationships we have seen on the MCU screen.
1. Thor and Loki
From the moment we saw this duo in the first Thor movies we knew it would be one of our favorites. The viewers could immediately relate to the god-siblings, representing the love and hate relationships that exist between brothers/sisters, wanting to kill each other on a daily bases but once an outside threat exist they have each other’s backs and would die for each other. Which exactly what happened in Avengers: Infinity War.
2. Tony Stark and Peter Parker
Everyone’s favorite father-son duo, the relationship between Tony and Peter was an emotional core that began in Iron Man 2 when Iron Man saved Peter during the exhibition and grown through Spider-Man: Homecoming and ended destructively in Avengers: Infinity War. We were able to see Tony Stark the man who claimed was made of iron grow to a father/mentor figure to young Peter Parker; a relationship that was important and gaining for Tony but ended exceedingly painful when he lost Peter in the snap.
3. Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes
No bromance can compete with that of Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes, with their friendship being introduced the first Captain America movies, the audience grew to fall for the bond those two had and how it went as far as Captain America turning his back on his own team to protect his best-friend and war buddy and help save him from the torture and the brainwashing he endured at the hands of HYDRA.
4. Tony Stark and Pepper Potts
Though they briefly separated between Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War, the power couple proved to be meant to be by getting engaged at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming
From the moment we saw these two share the screen in Iron Man we knew they were meant to be, and the flirty little comments and eye thing that they do just make our hearts melt. Pepper Potts is a strong independent woman and literally the only woman who can handle Tony Stark as well as his huge ego and iron suit who comes as a package. Tony also sees Pepper as his equal, trusting her with his family’s company by making her CEO and being the only one he can open up to regarding his fears and anxiety following the New York battle.
These are just a couple of the many different relationships introduced to us in the MCU. Share with us your favorite relationship/friendship in the comment section!
