Official Couple / Live-Action Films

Go To

  • Marty McFly and Jennifer Parker, as well as Emmett Brown and Clara Clayton, in Back to the Future. The former is already established as such since the first movie, further reinforced by the end of the third when Marty manages to prevent an accident that would have left him disabled in the future portrayed in the second movie (2015), thus leading to a more prosperous relationship in the new future. The latter is born as a result of a lucky change in history, as Clara was fated to die before Marty and Emmett saved her life in September 1885; they're revealed to have two children (Jules and Verne, collectively named after the science fiction writer) by the end of the third movie.

  • In Our Miss Brooks, the cinematic finale to the series of the same name, official couple Miss Brooks and Mr. Boynton finally get married.
  • Star Wars:
    • Han and Leia in the original trilogy. Notably, Luke doesn't get anyone until the Expanded Universe rolls around, aside from Leia kissing him once to mess with Han's head (a scene infamous for its retroactive Squick).
    • Anakin and Padme in the prequels.
  • Twilight:
    • Edward and Bella are the main romantic couple of the series, although there is a love triangle that takes place between Bella, Edward and Jacob.
    • Other confirmed couples include Jasper and Alice, Emmett and Rosalie, Carlisle and Esme, and later on Jacob and Renesmee.
  • Peeta and Katniss in The Hunger Games.
  • James Bond and Tracy di Vincenzo. This is the film in which the (in)famous Casanova finally decides to settle down. Pity about the Diabolus ex Machina. Three decades of movies later, and he almost has another in Elektra King. Pity about her being the Femme Fatale behind the terrorists. Interestingly enough, Bond was intended to have a steady girlfriend in Sylvia Trench, notable as the only Bond woman to appear twice, complete with Running Gag of him always being called away on missions when they're about to have a moment, but, reportedly, the actress refused to work with any director who was not the director of the first two films.

  • Sky High (2005) has Will and Gwen which gives way to Will and Layla after Gwen proves to be using him all along. Word of God has confirmed that, had the film spawned a series as was the original plan, Layla would've gone with Warren. Where does this leave Will? Search us.
  • When Across the Universe begins, Jude is happily dating Molly and Lucy is happily dating Daniel. Then Jude and Lucy find each other, and a plot ensues. Also, Sadie and Jojo, much to Prudence's chagrin.
  • Jake and Neytiri from Avatar.
  • Sam and Quorra from TRON: Legacy. And in the first film, Tron and Yori - and their User counterparts Alan and Lora. The deleted scenes and novelization play it up.
  • Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, complete with the most Crazy Awesome wedding imaginable in the third movie.

  • The official couples in Harry Potter are, surprising absolutely no one, the same as in the novels, at least until the last film makes Neville/Luna an official couple.
  • The Sorcerer's Apprentice has Dave and Becky.
  • Sam and Mikaela in Transformers. Later, they breakup and Sam gets his real true love, Carly.
  • In Star Trek Into Darkness, Spock and Uhura are still going strong.
  • After a Will They or Won't They? tease spanning the whole series, Riker and Troi were definitively shown as a couple in Star Trek: Insurrection, and Star Trek: Nemesis made the pairing even more official by opening with their wedding.
  • Marvel Cinematic Universe:
  • X-Men Film Series:
    • X-Men: While not explicitly mentioned in the movie, Jean Grey and Scott Summers are described as each other's fiancé(e) in promotional materials.
    • X2: X-Men United: Rogue and Bobby Drake are in the early stages of a romantic relationship, and their challenge is dealing with her mutant ability, as she can kill someone with a prolonged touch.
    • X-Men: Days of Future Past: Iceman and Kitty Pryde in The Rogue Cut. In the Alternate Timeline, that seems to have been erased because Bobby is with Rogue again, and Kitty is presumably with Colossus.
    • Deadpool (2016): Wade Wilson and Vanessa Carlysle are engaged.
    • X-Men: Apocalypse: Erik and Magda are married.
