10 Relationships That Must Be Explored In Future Marvel Movies

Where the hell has Hawkeye been since The Avengers anyway?

The hugely popular Marvel Cinematic Universe is rapidly filling up with a wide variety of weird and wonderful characters - a trait that is set to continue for many years still to come, as Marvel Studios announced a fourteen year plan to keep the franchise going quite recently. Inevitably, this creates a bunch of interesting relationships and interactions and, as a result, there are some extremely engrossing and compelling relationships developing in the current set of movies and television episodes. Of course, not all of these relationships are plain-sailing - in amongst all the friendships, the romances and indeed the "bromances" are some pretty complex and volatile relationships, all of which make for great viewing for the audience as the characters in question interact with each other in various ways. It comes down to the writing, the characterisation, the acting and the chemistry between the actors playing the relevant characters to make said relationships worth watching and it's the best of them that we're going to be discussing here. Here are ten relationships in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that we enjoyed watching enough to want to see them further explored (contains Marvel Cinematic Universe spoilers)...

Honourable Mention: Groot & Rocket Raccoon

Guardians of the Galaxy hasn't been released yet (just two months to go!), so it would be wrong to include these two in a list of relationships we want to see "further" explored, but it's a relationship that is exciting just about everyone who wants to see this movie. An anthropomorphic, talking raccoon with combat and firearms skills being watched over by a giant talking tree with super-strength? Yes please! Let's hope that Bradley Cooper (Rocket) and Vin Diesel (Groot) deliver with this duo and create one on the best on-screen team-ups for years.

Second Honourable Mention: Peter Quill & Earth

Likewise, Peter Quill is set to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy, so we can't include him in the main body of this list, but it's certainly going to be very interesting to see exactly what this human character who is travelling the cosmos has to do with Earth. In the comic books, he is an orphan who grows up to become a trainee NASA astronaut. An alien entity called the Master of the Sun ends up recruiting Quill to become Star-Lord - an interplanetary policeman. Whether or not this will be the case in the Marvel Cinematic Universe remains to be seen. Will Quill be a former astronaut? Will he have been in space all his life? Will he be fully human? Will he have any association with organisations like S.H.I.E.L.D.? Well, patience is a virtue and we shall find out in a couple of months. And now on to the actual article...
