Halloween is a week away and if you're still trying to figure out what costume to wear, superheroes are a good place to start.

In a recent survey, we asked more than 1,000 fans on which movie-inspired costumes from 2012 films as well as classic/iconic movies they'd dress up as.

The Avengers ruled among men with Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and Hulk claiming the first four spots respectively for 2012 movie costumes. Batman rounded out the top five.

Among women, CatWoman and Katniss went one-two respectively, followed by a couple of characters from Snow White and the Huntsman. Snow White was third with her nemesis Queen Ravenna claiming fourth. Black Widow from The Avengers rounded out the top five.

Here are the top ten movie-themed costumes for men and women below. Is your costume listed below? If not, what movie-themed character are you dressing up as?

    This year, I'm dressing up as The First Avenger, Captain America, because he's my favorite superhero of them all! But this is so cool that four of the Avengers have topped the men's movie costumes this year! Bottom line: AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!!!

    Sorry, but Queen Regina from "Once Upon a Time" is a MUCH better Evil Queen than Queen Ravenna...and dresses better, too. I've been working on losing weight, but I have not seen ANY Catwoman or Black Widow costumes to try on or find a store that stocks them in a reasonable size. (Up to size 10? Are you kidding, Party City?!) I'm going as Rumpel from OUAT again (Different outfit, though), but I have also been finishing a Rapunzel costume. I love to cosplay, as for movie characters from this year I've been plotting, it's Merida and Josette (From "Dark Shadows") but unfortunately, I've had to put a lot on hold due to a financial situation. :(

    Joanna, You might want to try LingerieDiva. I model and get All my costumes from them. They are what you'd get at the store( manufacturers & quality) but have a wider size selection & keep in mind that you might want to go up a size( I know I've had to @ 5'7", 125, 32e-24-34.) easier to pin or tape it then be uncomfortable in a too small- especially this close to Halloween. They offer various shipping options( returns are easy) too. Hope this helps! Happy Halloween!!!! Jennifer Ps: I bought the Bollywood, long, orange outfit & had to go up a size..

    I've already seen some people coming with ways to make the costume. Hopefully, Disney will releases a Wreck It Ralph costume (maybe even Fix It Felix Jr. costumes!)

    I think it will do good. Disney almost never fails with their animated movies.

    Flight will most likely fail because its not playing in as many theaters as Wreck It Ralph. Wreck It Ralph also has a more bigger fanbase. The film am worry about beating Wreck It Ralph is The Man With the Iron Fist but I bet Wreck It Ralph will win.
