What do Thor, Captain America and Batman have in common? (Hint: it’s not spandex.)
All three characters, along with Iron Man and the Hulk, made the top five guys’ picks in this year’s list of the most in-demand movie-inspired Halloween costumes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Meanwhile, women picked a "Dark Knight Rises"-inspired Catwoman as their No. 1 costume choice.
Katniss from “The Hunger Games,” Snow White and Queen Ravenna from "Snow White and the Huntsman," and "The Avengers' " Black Widow rounded out the top five choices for the ladies.
The survey, conducted by Fandango, is based on more than 1,000 responses and also includes a “classic” costume category, with favorites such as Dorothy from “The Wizard of Oz” and Indiana Jones.
The rest of the top costume picks are more varied, including heart-of-gold hunks ("Magic Mike"), heart-of-gold princesses (Merida from "Brave") and super-specific vampires (“Red-Eyed Bella the Vampire”).
After looking over the results, it's hard to say what's more curious: why so many women are attracted to the cotton candy-colored bureaucrat Effie from “The Hunger Games” (No. 7 for women) — or why so many guys are so eager to one-up Channing Tatum’s abs.
What about you? Are you going to sport a movie-inspired costume this Halloween?
