They look ecstatic! Elated, even! I am so happy for them!!!!!

And this happiness is so totally not even at all related to the fact that I have shipped them for years and feel as if I have personally won.

And, is it just me, or does this kiss give "We have definitely done this off-screen before" vibes?

I don't know...this looks well-practiced to me.

It all started in 2016, with the filming of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Previous MJ (Zendaya) and Spider-Man/Peter Parker (Tom) iterations (first, Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire, and second, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone) have had romantic relationships. So, naturally, people began speculating — was another romance afoot?

But they have long denied rumors of them dating.

After the report from People, Zendaya laughed off the rumors. That year she also told Variety that Tom is “literally one of [her] best friends.

But he continued that it is "incredibly frustrating" and "nerve-racking" navigating romance in the spotlight, and is something he worries about "most" of all the facets of his career.

However, it's important to note that throughout the past four years, both Zendaya and Tom have been linked to other partners.

Tom dated family friend Olivia Bolton from July 2019 to April 2020. And in February 2020, Zendaya was seen sharing cute PDA moments out and about in New York City with Euphoria co-star Jacob Elordi, before he began dating Kaia Gerber in September.
