Couple: Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter
In Captain America, director Joe Johnston completely captures the romantic aesthetic of the World War II era and perfectly pairs all-American Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) with independent Brit agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). Individually, Steve’s an earnest, perfect gentleman and Peggy’s a feminine soldier holding her own in a man’s world. Together, they’re both committed heroes that want to rid the world of evil, so of course they’re perfect for one another. Add some tear-inducing sacrifice, and they create a war-time romance with resonance.
