The Marvel Cinematic Universe is, frankly, enormous. So far, it’s made up of 32 movies, plus a bevy of television shows. And while we’re happy to watch superheroes duke it out, we’re really romantics. We want kissing! We want love! We want romance!

The Marvel movies have a messier track record when it comes to serving that up. Sometimes – like with Wanda and Vision – they get it right, and sometimes – like with the Hulk and Black Widow – they get it extremely wrong.

The past year of Marvel shows and films had given us old and new couples to consider. “Thor: Love and Thunder” brought back Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster, the ex-girlfriend of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) who appeared in the first two Thor movies, and briefly in “Avengers: Endgame.” “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” checked in on the title heroes – who are also a couple. And this May’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” is probably the last time fans will see Peter Quill and Gamora together.

So we’re revisiting every major couple the MCU has given us so far and ranking them. Yes, we’re only considering canon couples, so sorry in advance to shippers and fan-fiction-lovers everywhere – we also wish Stucky had happened. And though Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) and Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) were both juggling romantic interests in their Disney+ series “Ms. Marvel” and “She-Hulk,” we’ll keep them both off the list until they choose someone for more than an episode. Here’s our ranking of the MCU couples, from worst to best.
