"Marvel movies are great, but they need more kissing": The romance factor Marvel movies are missing.
Mashable's critique on the scarcity of romance and authentic kisses in the realm of Marvel movies.
The world of Marvel movies, undeniably riveting and action-packed, is unfortunately deficient in an essential aspect of human experience - passionate love and more importantly, its expression through kissing. As declared by Mashable in 2018, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) houses a paucity of love-filled moments and kisses between its characters.
"A Plethora of Power, A Dearth of Desire"
"Marvel movies are great, but they need more kissing," declared Mashable. They point out that most of Marvel's smooches are 'chaste consolation kisses', often slotted between characters whose romances seem a little too forced to be real. Mashable confidently opines that a universe where purple villains can snap and cause mass dematerialization, can surely handle a few more authentic moments of romance.
"MCU Kisses: The Good, The Bad, The Forgettable"
Not all kissing scenes in the Marvel universe are up for criticism. Some like the kisses between Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter in "Captain America: The First Avenger" and T'Challa and Nakia in "Black Panther", managed to pack an emotional punch. However, most others, including kisses shared by Vision and Scarlet Witch in "Avengers: Infinity War" and Natasha Romanoff and Bruce Banner in "Avengers: Age of Ultron", have left audiences cringing or simply indifferent due to lack of chemistry or forced romances.
As MCU continues to entertain and wow audiences worldwide with its superhero sagas, Mashable's critique highlights an overlooked dimension. They argue, "We can do better", urging for more screen time dedicated to showcasing deeper romantic connections. And given the larger-than-life stakes in these films, who could argue against the need for more genuine love and passion to balance out the cosmic chaos?
