Recently I noticed this oddly specific pose, which I am now dubbing the Super Hero Holds Two Things Together Pose (or SHHTTTP for short), has appeared from what I can tell at least six times in the MCU, possibly more.
You will of course notice that I only have three pictured instances of the SHHTTTP here, well the three others I've noticed I couldn't find pictures for, but that definitely do exist are: Gamora keeping Drax tethered to the ship in GOTG Vol 2, Spider-Man keeping Doctor Strange from being abducted by the flying doughnut in Infinity War and Thanos being briefly restrained by both arms in the battle on Τitan (also in Infinity War).
Obviously there is no in-universe explanation for why this is so common, however is there an out-of-universe explanation? Does Kevin Feige just really like pectoral muscles or something? Am I just insane and seeing patterns where there are none?
Any other known examples of the SHHTTTP in Superhero media would also be very much appreciated.
