Movies That Cast MCU Actors As Their Romantic Leads

Ever imagined Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Tom Hiddleston (Loki) as a romantic couple? Hard to fathom, right? The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a game-changer since 2012’s Avengers, introducing fans to the shared universe. Apart from rooting for the superheroes to win in an MCU film or perhaps, a series that you are watching, some MCU fans might also wish for two of their favorite Marvel characters to get together onscreen.

While the chances of your most favorite duo might not get along on the big or small screen, here’s a little glimpse at what these heroes (and other pairs) might look like in other films as a couple.

Here are a few amazing pairs of the Marvel Cinematic Universe actors who played couples in non-Marvel movies: 

Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson

Everyone is aware of Black Panther antagonist Michael B. Jordan and Ragnarok’s Tessa Thompson as Erik Killmonger and Valkyrie. Thompson’s role as Valkyrie was liked by fans and critics, alike.

However, if you have seen the Rocky spinoffs, Creed and Creed II, the duo plays Donnie Creed and his love interest, Bianca and grust us, their chemistry looks INCREDIBLE onscreen.

Another couple from Black Panther: Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke as Nakia and M’Baku in Black Panther.
