2. Wonder Woman

There is just something about period-set love stories that makes them so darn timeless. That's something you'll see as we venture towards the top of our romance ranking, too, as Wonder Woman isn't the only one you'll see on this list. But it is one of the finest examples of that.

Much like the classic '70s TV series, the film tells the story of a hopeful Diana Prince, Princess of Themyscira, who arrives in the world of man with the intention of stopping the God of War and bringing about peace. However, she soon sees that it isn't just Ares' influence corrupting men, forcing her to question what she once knew. And through it all, the man who helped her into this world, Steve Trevor, starts to see things through her eyes: With hope.

The chemistry between Gal Gadot and Chris Pine is incredible, and that makes Diana and Steve's romance so beautiful. There is so much said in a look, in a touch, in a dance, that you can't help but root for them to get together. And even though they only spend a short amount of time in the same place at the same time, you can just feel the love they feel for each other in every moment. It's subtle, it's gentle, it's quiet, but it's there.

There is so much heart in Wonder Woman and so much of that has to do with how Diana and Steve impact each other. He shows her his world and she shows him that, through all the darkness, that world is still capable of being a bit more like hers. As Wonder Woman always manages to do, she inspired him with hope, and that's such a beautiful - and, again, subtle - representation of love.

Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor is one of the greatest superhero love stories ever told.
