"It" Girls of Superhero Movies

Friday, August 12, 2011
I've admired Wonder Woman since I was a little girl. Although I wasn't an avid follower, I remember seeing her in various forms of media, in awe of her amazing ability to kick ass and have awesome accessories.

Superheroes have been in existence for decades, and spawned a slew of accompanying movies that often hit theaters during summertime. From Thor to Captain America, the genre has certainly been dominating the box office this summer. And there's more to come, with The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises set to be released in 2012.

Naturally, "It" Girls have been tapped to play major roles in some of the biggest films. While the majority of the leading ladies are not superheroes themselves (boooo!), they fill the always essential role of the love interest, dealing with all of the burdens that come along with falling for a man who is busy fighting evil and trying to save the world. Even if the movie is not up to par (I am looking at you, Green Lantern), it is always nice to see one of the "It" Girls shining.

There are a lot of characters and storylines to take in, but thankfully, my bestie happens to be a comic book and Marvel connoisseur, so I'm all set. And, with his help, I was exposed to every superhero movie that hit theaters this summer.

Below is a showcase of the "It" Girls who have appeared in this summer's comic-based films, as well as a preview of those amping up for their movies next year. Bonus points to anyone who can guess my favorite out of the bunch (hint: she is really sparkly).
