* When it comes to ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', slash pairings like Thor/Loki, Tony/Loki, Steve/Tony, Bruce/Tony (or the combined Steve/Bruce/Tony) tend to be more popular than those characters with their het love interests such as Jane, Pepper, Peggy, and Betty, mostly due to the fact that those characters are nearly/completely absent from the film (or, in Peggy's case, old).

* In the DVD commentary for ''Film/StarshipTroopers'', director Paul Verhoeven says fans wanted Carmen to die and Johnny to end up with Dizzy, proving that it isn't only fans who have preferred couples. Considering that in the original book Dizzy is ''male'' and Johnny and Carmen have at most a one-night stand together, this wouldn't have been such a bad change compared to most of the rest of the changes Verhoeven actually did make.

Added DiffLines:

* The two leads of ''Film/PacificRim'', Mako and Raleigh have a ton of UnresolvedSexualTension throughout the film, yet it is left up in the air what the relationship is. However, that's not what the fanbase thinks and a large number of fanfics pair them up.

*** When the film came out, it did ''not'' take long for fans to start shipping [[TragicVillain Kylo Ren]] with [[ActionGirl Rey]]. Fans were intrigued by the characters' intense [[FoeRomanceSubtext interactions]], considering them to be ''much'' more interesting and ripe with [[FanficFuel possibilities]] than the potential for a Rey/Finn romance. The fact that it is strongly suggested that Kylo Ren has a VillainousCrush on Rey--he bridal carries her, watches her sleep and even volunteers to be her teacher--only added fuel to the fire. However, the ship is the source of a major BrokenBase, with many other fans thinking that their FoeYay has some parallels to an abusive relationship or theorizing that they might end up being related.

However, ''Film/TheLastJedi'' made it even more popular not just among fans, but general audiences and reviewers too, thanks to even stronger FoeRomanceSubtext such as: empathizing and bonding over their mutual loneliness, sharing lingering looks and touches, and [[spoiler:their desperation to sway the ship is the source of a major BrokenBase, with many other fans thinking that to their FoeYay has some parallels to an abusive relationship or theorizing that they might end up being related.side]].

** Inverted. Even before the movie came out, pre-release implications that Bruce Banner and Black Widow would become a couple was met with fairly unanimous disapproval, mockery, and outright confusion from the fanbase. This is due to many reasons, namely all their interactions in the first film only showing Natasha being afraid of Bruce and him attacking her as The Hulk, on top of the two having much stronger connections with other characters, making Bruce one of the least popular partners for [[LauncherOfAThousandShips Black Widow]]. While some shippers jumped onboard and some critics even cited their relationship as one of the film’s better aspects, the overall reception to Bruce/Natasha remained mostly negative; many even likening the ship to being StrangledByTheRedString.

* Fans of ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheHuntsman'' prefer Snow White/Huntsman as opposed to Snow White/William. It does ''not'' help that the Huntsman [[spoiler: kissing Snow White is what [[PowerOfLove awakens her from death]] after eating the poisoned apple, whilst William's kiss did nothing]], carrying the implication he’s her OneTrueLove, but in the sequel she’s [[spoiler: married to William]] and the Huntsman ends up [[spoiler: back with his NotQuiteDead wife, Sara]].

* In the film adaptation of ''Film/TheHobbit'', the most popular ship among fans is Thorin/Bilbo.

to:

* In the film adaptation of ''Film/TheHobbit'', the most popular ship among fans is Thorin/Bilbo.Thorin/Bilbo, or Bagginshield. The pairing blew up like you wouldn’t believe after ‘'An Unexpected Journey’’ was released and only escalated from there. It’s virtually impossible to look up ''The Hobbit'' on Google without stumbling across Bagginshield fanart or fanfiction. Youtube is also full of videos shipping them, both crack videos ''and'' serious ones. The HoYay between them in the films proper doesn't help.

* ''Film/SchindlersList'' has Amon and Helen, pairing occasionally supported by viewers, despite unlikelihood of it ever possibly working out, particularly since Amon mostly seems to see her as something he likes to possess than actually caring about her.
