The Hottest Love Interests from Superhero Movies and TV

In honor of Anne "One of the Hottest Women Alive" Hathaway being cast as one of the most iconic superhero love interests of all time, Selina Kyle, in The Dark Knight Rises, here are all of the hottest women who have ever played a girlfriend, wife or random hook-up of a superhero in a film or TV show ranked by how hot they were as their character. 

Who are the hottest superhero girlfriends? This isn't batgirl xxx, but these are definitely the best superhero love interests in movie and TV history.

    Better known as Batgirl from the Batman television series of the 60s, Yvonne Craig goes down as the single hottest Batgirl in Batman history (not including Lexi Belle who played Batgirl in 2010's Batman XXX, of course).

    To be respectful, this woman really gave Barbara Gordon the spunk she deserves as a character, and also made Batgirl into a character considered as "sexy." She wasn't just someone to be captured who jumped around looking hot, she actually had some WHAMs and THWACKs to offer. It was wonderfully played by an awesome actress who also played a green alien in Star Trek.

    Yvonne Craig also showed us all, as children, the beauty of something that most men know and love very well: the nipple poke.

    There's no doubt in anyone's head right now exactly what she looks like topless. And that is glorious.

    Hats off to a classically beautiful woman playing a classy and beautiful Batgirl.

  • Anne Hathaway

    Anne Hathaway played Catwoman/Selina Kyle that is pretty much the closest Batman has ever come to true love in The Dark Knight Rises.  

    If there's anyone that can get Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne wrapped around her finger, it's definitely Anne Hathaway. Finally breaking a streak of weak female characters in Batman movies, Anne Hathaway really brought her A-game to make her Catwoman not only as unique as other iterations of villains we've seen in previous Nolan Batman films, but also "real."

    With Nolan directing it's pretty safe to say that this is the best Selina Kyle we've gotten so far, and one that is layered, seductive, two-faced, and downright hot as hell.

    If you draw your eyes to Exhibit 2 you'll see that the way she looks in a black corset (this time with her arms up, with the corset just barely hanging on for dear life) really does seal the deal that this is great casting (despite the fact that she's an Oscar nominated actress who has never really done a bad job at any role she's ever been handed).

    She's just overall hotter than: Halle Berry, Michelle Pfeifer, Julie Newmar, Maggie Baird, Lee Meriwether, and Eartha Kitt
  • Blake Lively

    Blake Lively is without a doubt one of the most beautiful women in the world. Her body is about a 12, and when she opens her mouth, you don't feel the need to punch babies. The perfect fit for Carol Ferris in Green Lantern

    Now, nobody has ever played Carol Ferris before--at least not in live-action. Carol Ferris, the comic book character, is a woman who falls in love with Hal Jordan (Green Lantern himself) after her father hires him as a pilot for the plane company they own.

    The weirdest part, which didn't happen in the movie, is that an alien race of warrior women take over Carol's body (like any of us would if we could), and make her into a supervillain named Star Sapphire that has powers much like the Green Lantern's.

    I can see Blake Lively cracking wise about not being attracted to Ryan Reynolds (because God knows he looks like an underdog...), but the idea of her turning into an ultra super-powered being could mean nothing but trouble.
  • Erica Durance

    Lois Lane from "Smallville."

    The only competition Erica Durance might have for the hottest Lois Lane of all time might be from Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman's Teri Hatcher, a still terribly underrated show that actually holds up well (seriously, re-watch the pilot it's actually not bad).

    Even at her hottest, Teri Hatcher can't hold a candle up to Erica Durance, and really neither can any other Lois Lane.

    One of the worst parts about Superman: Returns was that we were given a one-dimensional, weak and massively non-intelligent Lois Lane. Lois Lane is one of the strongest women in comic book history, a role model for girls and actually deserves a great representation, which is why we chose Erica Durance.

    She's spunky, she beats the crap out of people with her words, she's persistent, she has a secret love for Clark, is obsessed with Superman and is a strong independent woman who could beat the crap out of you -- which is hot as hell.

  • Emma Stone

    Gwen Stacy from the upcoming Spider-Man reboot.

    The cutest girl in Hollywood at the moment (who even changed her hair color back to her natural blonde for the role) Emma Stone has shown us, with Superbad, Easy A and even Zombieland, that the nerdy guy really can get the girl.

    Once again falling for a nerdy guy, Emma Stone is about to play the mother of all nerd lovers in Gwen Stacy, Spider-Man's first true love.

    Since nobody else (other than Bryce Dallas "I Make Terrible Film Decisions" Howard) has truly played Gwen Stacy in a notable production of Spider-Man, it's safe to say that not only is Emma going to be the cutest one, but she's going to bring the most depth to the character. Bryce Dallas Howard, although hot as hell, makes horrible decisions and her role in the decline of the Spider-Man franchise with Spider-Man 3 was so unsexy (if nothing but for how bad the movie was) that Emma Stone gets the pick for hottest Gwen stacy ever.

    Here's another still of Emma in the new Spider-Man movie while (spoiler alert) attending a funeral (that, for anyone who's read the comics should be no surprise.)

    Sadly, the character of Gwen Stacy can't stick around for tooo long, which makes us sad because if anyone could pull of a young Mary Jane Watson, it would be Emma Stone. Raise your hand if you'd be totally fine with this just to get a double dose of Emma.

    Jane Foster in Thor (2011 Marvel Studios)

    Okay, so nobody's ever played Jane Foster before (Thor's love interest), but if sometime in the distant f*ture science invents somebody hotter than Natalie Portman, then the fact that cryogenic freezing (and not the weird, realistic kind, but the awesome, gel-filled Demolition Man kind) doesn't exist commercially, for regular use, is a crime and an outrage.

    Jane Foster is a strong, awesome love interest (and kind of a trifling piece of crap) that falls in love with both Thor and his alter ego Donald Blake. She's actually a nurse (which means we might get to see Natalie Portman in a hot nurse's outfit) that works for Dr. Donald Blake who eventually gains feelings for him even though she's totally into this literally-God-like dude she met recently.

    That's gotta be an awkward conversation once she finds out both dudes knew what she was trying to pull.
