The Academy Awards are always incredibly long. If you’re in the audience, sitting still for three hours can really mess with your appetite, especially if you’re a superhero. At last night’s Oscars, host Chris Rock helped out the Girl Scouts (and his daughters) by selling cookies to a bunch of millionaires, and helped out the audience by quelling their hunger.
Among the purchasers were a few of our favorite on-screen superheroes, because even heroes get the munchies. Thin Mints, Trefoils, and Tagalongs were distributed accordingly, so we rounded up a few of our super cookie lovers from last night’s awards. I feel you, Batman. Justice never tasted so good.
The Dark Knight
No lie — I’ve stared at this picture longer than I should have. Is it the mustache or the way that Christian Bale is shoving the cookies into his mouth that makes it so hard to look away? Hard to say, but even on Oscars night, Batman’s gotta eat.
A two-fer, and from two separate universes no less. We imagine that during the ceremony, Chris Evans turns to look at Henry Cavill only to see Superman saving the world from Thin Mints… by eating them. Cap just laughs because he knows that a green box of Girl Scout cookies clearly means Kryptonite is an ingredient.
Ok, Lucius Fox isn’t a superhero but he was partly created by Len Wein who created Wolverine and that’s close enough for me. Plus Lucius is always there to give Batman advice so it makes sense that both he and Batman went straight for the cookies on Oscars night. The funniest thing is that that when you watch the clip, Morgan Freeman grabs his cookies, then just straight up leaves. Lucius Fox does not have time for Oscars speeches when there’s justice to be served in Gotham.
Olivia Munn hands down wins my heart for being the cookie monster of the night. You’ve probably already seen the photo circulating of her and beau Aaron Rogers wide-eyed and holding a box of Thin Mints and Savannah Smiles. It’s true, lemon flavored anything will make you lose your mind. What you didn’t see was that at the end of the show, Psylocke used her telekinesis to gather all the Girl Scout Cookies in the room into her arms. This is the power that I long for.[brightcove video_id=”4759102022001″ brightcove_account_id=”3653334524001″ brightcove_player_id=”2bfa565b-5412-4cfd-9211-6269880b8a5e”]
