The first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier hit the internet last week and we couldn’t be more excited about it. We get to see Chris Evans return as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as the Falcon, and most importantly, Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier. We don’t know about you, but we got chills at the end of the trailer when the Winter Soldier catches Cap’s shield with his suped up prosthetic arm…and it got us thinking about how many of our favorite heroes and villains have lost a hand (or an arm), but haven’t lost our hearts.
We don’t want to give too much away about the Winter Soldier or his backstory or why he’s got a fancy fake arm that can do special tricks. We will say, however, that he’s just the latest one-handed hottie in pop culture whom we love.
I mean, it’s a weird thing to point out, but there are a LOT of heroes, villains, and anti-heroes who lose a hand or arm…there’s the Winter Soldier, there’s Jaime Lannister, there’s James Franco in 127 Hours, there’s…look, there’s a lot. Here are our 10 favorite one-handed hotties.
