Girlfriends. Gal pals. Sidekicks. Whatever you call them, superheroes just wouldn't be able to rise to their full powers without a love interest — and usually a healthy dose of some smoldering on-screen sexuality.
So whether it's the famous upside down kiss between Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man and girlfriend Kirsten Dunst or Gwyneth Paltrow's slinky skirts and witty banter with Iron Man Robert Downey, Jr., the chemistry between a superhero and his civilian paramour is usually an integral part of the story.

In addition to headlining the surprise sequel to "10 Things I Hate About You," "Captain America: The First Avenger" British cutie Hayley Atwell will soon be trekking back a few decades to star in the Jimi Hendrix biopic "All Is By My Side."
According to The Playlist, Atwell was confirmed for the film today, despite some song licensing issues the film has had with Hendrix's company Experience Hendrix (Variety states that the movie will utilize interview and archive materials). Get More »
Remember the 1999 blockbuster "10 Things I Hate About You" that launched the late Heath Ledger to instant teen-heartthrob stardom? That might be the question of the hour, as there is (apparently) a sequel in the works. Now. More than a decade later.
Seems a little slow on the uptake, if you ask us, but we're intrigued just the same. According to Variety, "Captain America: The First Avenger" beauty Hayley Atwell has signed on to star in this installment, coined "10 Things I Hate About Life." Now, we love us some Atwell, but something about her as the lead seems kind of … random. Then again, so does the sequel in general, so maybe that fits. Get More »
There's nothing like a good old fashioned action flick about cops who push the envelope of legality by employing criminal methods to catch crooks; the dirtier the good guys get, the better, as a half dozen "Dirty Harry" blockbusters can attest. Which is why the new trailer for "The Sweeney" is so sweet. Just how rough and tumble are these cops?
Well, Ray Winstone is the star — and the title is a reference to the infamous demon barber of Fleet Street, Sweeney Todd.
Yeah. That damn rough. Get More »
The BAFTA Awards have most of the trimmings of the Academy Awards, but with one big exception: the Orange Rising Star Award, which is voted on by the public.
While previous Rising Star noms and winners have included a mix of male and female actors like Emma Stone, Kristen Stewart, Eva Green and Emily Blunt, this year's final five was a sausage fest.
One would-be nominee, "Captain America: The First Avenger" star Hayley Atwell," isn't just sittin' pretty about it. Get More »
Marvel Studios has pulled it off again with its fifth superhero to muscle his way onto the big screen in "Captain America: The First Avenger." Director Joe Johnston's fast-paced origin story about the World War II-era superhero was a critical and financial success and heightens the anticipation for seeing Cap team up with Iron Man, Hulk and Thor next year in "The Avengers."
Leading man Chris Evans -- who has always had the sick build of a superhero, and has played one before in two "Fantastic Four" movies as Human Torch -- is introduced in "Captain America" as scrawny Steve Rogers thanks to some digital downsizing. The asthmatic little guy desperately wants to enlist in the army to serve during World War II, but keeps getting declined owing to a laundry list of health problems. He is eventually recruited into a secret super-soldier program and, after taking a muscle-building serum, is transformed into a hunk of red-white-and-blue hurt for the Nazis. Get More »
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. Cap wages war against the Nazis' occult science division, HYDRA, which is led by the evil Red Skull (Hugo Weaving).
Unlike, say, the recent CGI-heavy "Green Lantern," "Captain America" is a different kind of superhero movie, focusing on the early days of the Marvel universe. Read on to find out what separates this Avenger from his fellow cinematic superheroes. Get More »
Three cheers for the Red, White and Blue! Several stars made up the... well, stars of the "Flag Carpet" at the Los Angeles premiere of "Captain America: The First Avenger," held at the El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Boulevard.
The Captain himself, Chris Evans, was in attendance, as well as several of his co-stars, including Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan and Derek Luke. A few Marvel-ous alums also made appearances, including Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson.
Salute our gallery of cinematic patriotism. "Captain America: The First Avenger" opens July 22.
The summer movie season is here, and that means one thing: AIR CONDITIONING!!! Also, we get to watch some cool movies with our air conditioning ticket.
There will be some familiar if not downright iconic faces to greet us there, but who's not looking to make some new friends? Lucky for us Hollywood is dishing out a promising group of cinematic newcomers who just might have made the leap to stardom by the time school's back in session -- including two sons, one daughter and one cousin of pop culture royalty.

As of next year, three of America's most famous superheroes will be played by Brits: Superman (Henry Cavill), Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield), and Batman (Christian Bale). No, we're not going to protest out of some misguided jingoism (although we will point out the horror with which our friends across the Atlantic responded to Renee Zellweger playing Bridget Jones once upon a time).
We don't know if it's the popularity of rigorous youth drama programs or what, but the British are invading Hollywood at a rate that rivals the arrival of the Aussies in the late '90s. Looking at the more established young slate of English talent (Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, the Harry Potter trifecta, and Robert Pattinson to name a few), we say welcome to the next gen of Bright Young Brits.
