Things We Saw Today: We Can’t Get Enough of Thor and Captain Marvel Together
No, not like that, you fools.
Hands down the best part of the new Avengers: Endgame trailer was Thor trying to take Captain Marvel’s measure. The few seconds of footage tagged at trailer’s end was the only moment of levity, and as these things are wont to do, it launched frenzied social media reactions, memes, fanart, and even a (misguided) ship.

Why is shipping these two misguided, you say? Well, while it’s understandable that some fans would see the beautiful Carol Danvers and the beautiful Thor, two of the strongest Avengers, and decide that there’s a romantic spark between them, they are mistaken.
Thor, god of lesbians, is far more likely spotting a potential date for his BFF Valkyrie and responding with an approving grin to Carol’s vibrant queer energy.

Romance aside, many fans loved the idea of Thor and Carol as pals, basking in each other’s mutual glow:
