I love that the biggest blockbuster of the summer had a fiercely platonic relationship between the two leads. I think that’s really important to see in movies.
…that doesn’t stop me from shipping them. Broken assholes with trust issues is kind of my thing, and I couldn’t resist.
I am so totally shipping them so badly! I totally agree with you that it was great to see the platonic relationship between them, but I would totally be okay if in a sequel there was more.
