It’s almost Summer Solstice, everybody! The day is long. The night is hot. The planet’s semi-axis is tilting heavily toward the sun, which is officially at its northernmost point in the sky. (Science!)
But our favorite part of solstice is that it gives us an excuse to cruise the interwebs for hot pictures of our favorite summer stars, because research, guys. From blockbuster superheroes to World Cuppers to whatever unholy thing Zac Efron even is, here is our definitive list of the 21 Hottest Boys of Summer.
The undisputed king of summer shirtlessness.
Always having a great time. Sigh.
Michael B. Jordan
Looks so good in a suit that we’re willing to overlook the fact that he’s wearing one.
Tall drink of water.
The arms, though.
Sexiest lizard on this whole list.
We’d run through a maze with this guy.
Presented without comment.
More like Hugh JACKED-man. (No one else has ever made that joke.)
Fight winter soldiers all you want. You’re still our summer hottie.
Not being Edward anymore has never looked better.

Hilarious, humble, and capable of guarding galaxies.
Happiness (and hats) is in.
If anyone can rival Efron when it comes to shirtlessness, it’s this guy.
We’re getting pretty hungry for Mockingjay.
By what right do you judge Jaime Lannister’s hotness?
You might not know him now, but he’ll be your latest obsession when “The Giver” comes out in August.
We can think of at least four reasons why he made this list.
Somehow even sexier with a cast.
