The plantonic relationship of Capable and Nux actually makes sense

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015


Capable was raped, abused and locked up. She wouldn’t fall in love with a man immediately after the escape. In a bad movie – yeah I guess so. The Mad Max world may be well, mad but the portrayal of feelings and characters are well done and realistic.

Nux has never experienced kindness and friendship so of course he would be drawn to the person that treated him like a human being for the first time in his life.

I also think that a platonic relationship shows that there can be other feelings between a man and a woman than romantic love. How many action movies are there where an important male character doesn’t desire a main female character sexually and romantically but wants a friendship? 

Ever seen a movie where a female and a male character touch each other not because of sexual desire but because they just really like each other? The only example I know are Ghibli movies.

So yeah platonic Nuxable is canon and it’s great. Nothing stops you from having headcanons tho.
