Superheroes need loving, too, you know.

It's commonplace to see our big-screen crimefighters also battle for love, but rarely have we seen a hero just as smitten as Steve Rogers in "Captain America: The First Avenger" (the cruelest irony: when all is said and done [SPOILER ALERT], dude may be the oldest virgin we've encountered since Andy Stitzer).

Of course, not every super-love story pans out, so what happens when these guys don't sync perfectly with their first ladies (or guys)?

Paramount

You've watched two "Hulk" and two "Iron Man" movies, and just saw "Thor" earlier this year; now it's time to watch Chris Evans fill out his costume in "Captain America: The First Avenger" before all four heroes team up in the superhero smackdown "The Avengers" next year.

"Captain America" tells the story of Steve Rogers (Evans), a scrappy but spirited 98-pound weakling who repeatedly tries to enlist in the military during World War II. He is finally accepted into an experimental program that transforms him into a super soldier known as Captain America.

Simon created a whole fleet of vehicles for the Hydra baddies that fit right in to the time period while still appearing advanced. He told NextMovie all about designing vehicles for one of summer's most anticipated movies. Get More »
