Happy Comic-Con weekend! It’s been a busy few days of revelations from the convention and relationship updates from your favorite celebrity couples. Here’s the news you might have missed:

5. Hungry for Love

Susan Sarandon spilled her secrets, admitting to a love affair with rock legend David Bowie while the two filmed The Hunger in 1983. “That was a really interesting period,” Sarandon, 67, remarked about their romance. Learn more about the surprising fling.

4. Wonder Woman to the Rescue

Gal Gadot is grabbing the Lasso of Truth to play the feminist icon in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and fans were treated to a first look at her in character at Comic-Con. Wonder Woman’s red-white-and-blue outfit looks as if it’s been burned to black – a fitting change given Ben Affleck s dark and broody Batman costume. See the gritty photo for yourself.

3. Consciously Re-Coupled?

No, they’re not back together, but Chris Martin said he and Gwyneth Paltrow are still “very close” since splitting in March.

2. Hollywood Hookups

Forget the crazy costumes and superhero screenings: The real stars of Comic-Con were fictional vampires Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed, who packed on the PDA at a convention party Saturday night. Meanwhile, the summer’s other hottest new couple, Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, kissed passionately while traveling though Fort Lauderdale International Airport. See the steamy picture.

1. Family First for Jenny & Melissa McCarthy

You know what they say: Blood is thicker than gossip. Read all about their loving relationship.
