On April 24, The Amazing Spider-Man: High Voltage movie is released, starring the protagonist's girlfriend, Emma Stone. It is difficult to argue with the fact that even superheroes need a beloved, but sometimes these girls remain in the shadows. We restore justice and present the five heroic girlfriends.
Spider-Man and Gwen Tacey
Few know that Gwen Tacey, played by Emma Stone, isn't Spider-Man's only girlfriend. Those who closely follow the franchise will remember that in the previous film version of the Spiderman comic, Kirsten Dunst played another girl named Mary Jane Watson, the one who gave Spider the famous kiss upside down in the rain. Only now the creators were extremely impolite with the original story of Spider-Man, grossly violating the superhero's love chronology.
Mary Jane Watson is indeed Peter Parker's greatest love, who became his wife. Only now the romance with her began not at school, but much later. Spider's school love was a gymnast girl Liz Allen, and Gwen Stacy, who is in love with The New Spider-Man played by Andrew Garfield, is a classmate of the hero. According to the comic, she and her father will be killed by the Green Goblin and the Octopus Man. Oops! It turned out to be a spoiler … Although the producers of the film make significant hints that the script may develop differently.
Hellboy and Liz Sherman
The leader of the Redskins, Hellboy, has a much simpler and more modest love story. His only love is the fiery girl Liz Sherman, who, at the age of 11, accidentally set her family on fire. Liz flares up every time she loses her temper, and this nuance prevents her from dating regular guys. And for Hellboy, who, as you know, is a "hero from the hell" himself, it costs nothing to fondle a burning girlfriend.
Iron Man and Virginia Pepper Potts
Tell me, what girl doesn't dream of dating Robert Downey Jr.? And with his character from the movie comics about Iron Man? Tony Stark is smart, rich, handsome, witty, caring, and superhero! Despite the obvious playboy role, Iron Man has only one girlfriend throughout history - Pepper Potts, who is fortunate enough to be played by Gwyneth Paltrow. Before her, in the personal life of Stark, who was trying to fight alcohol addiction, there was a complete mess.
Gwyneth Paltrow and other stars, whose wedding fell through on the eve of the celebration
Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow met on the set of the movie "Seven", on the set they had a whirlwind romance. The couple even had the same style of dress at the time! The upcoming wedding of two sex symbols seemed like an event of the year, but Brad and Gwyneth suddenly parted ways. Rumor has it that the reason was the bride's infidelity: she allegedly had an affair with colleague John Hannah on the set of "Beware, the doors are closing."
Secretary Pepper Potts helped Stark not to ruin his father's business (experienced Potts knew the work of the company much better than the legitimate heir) and, according to the law of the genre, fell in love with her new young boss. The creators of the Iron Man films were more supportive of the girl and brought her to Stark, while in the comics Pepper's love is unrequited and she marries another, while continuing to work for Tony Stark.
Superman and Lois Lane
Beloved, and later Superman's wife Lois Lane works as a reporter for the Daily Planet, that is, is a colleague of Clark Kent, who leads a double life. Throughout four films, from 1978 to 1987, Lane was played by actress Margot Kidder, who was replaced by Kate Bosworth in the modern film adaptation of Superman Returns in 2006 (the little-known actress at that time even managed to get around Scarlett Johansson, Claire Danes and Keira Knightley).
But in the most recent film, last year's "Man of Steel", Kate was not invited. Amy Adams played the role of Superman's girlfriend. This time, Rachel McAdams, Jessica Biel, Dianna Agron, Kristen Stewart, Kristen Bell, Olivia Wilde and Mila Kunis auditioned for the role of Lois Lane, but Amy Adams had the advantage - experience in the filming of the series "Smallville", based on the comics about Superman …
Hulk and Betty Ross
Meeting the Hulk is a huge job. You never know when your cute boyfriend will turn into an uncontrollable aggressive monster destroying everything in its path. Therefore, the green superhero's love record is also small. Only the daughter of the Thunderbolt Ross Betty, who is no stranger to strange guys, could endure the antics of the Hulk. Hulk marries Betty, but she later dies, poisoned by the Abomination. After some time, Betty is resurrected in the form of the Red Woman-Hulk (the place of the classic green Woman-Hulk had long before been taken by the Hulk's cousin, whom he received a blood transfusion during his illness). Jennifer Connelly played Betty Ross in the 2003 film Hulk, and Liv Tyler played the role of Betty Ross five years later in The Incredible Hulk.
Batman and all-all-all
The Batman is the most loving superhero, and in our article the guy goes out of the list, because Batman has not yet decided on his only heart friend. In the 1989 film, Bruce Wayne meets journalist Vicky Weil, played by Kim Basinger. In the second part, Batman returned to twist with his enemy Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer and later Anne Hathaway), who even gave birth to his daughter. Later, the hero drew attention to Dr. Chase Meridian (Nicole Kidman), but, contrary to the name, Batman did not fall in love forever. He continued to be drawn to the bad girls, and Talia al Ghul, the future mother of his son Damian, became Batman's next hobby.
Elle Macpherson, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Katie Holmes also played Batman's girlfriends without superpowers at various times.
