Wonder Woman Beats Spider-Man As the Summer\’s Most Anticipated Movie



DC has one victory over Marvel this summer as Wonder Woman has been named this summer’s most anticipated movie by Fandango.

Fandango polled 10,000 movie fans to see what movie they were most anticipating between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and Wonder Woman came in #1. Spider-Man: Homecoming was close after it at #2, followed by Pirates 5.

This is a pretty strong showing for Wonder Woman, especially after sensationalist click bait from sites that claimed the movie wasn’t even being marketed. Right now Wonder Woman is tracking at a $90 million opening, but with responses like this and the word of mouth spreading from advanced screenings; it could open much higher than that.

This is the full list:
1. “Wonder Woman” (June 2)
2. “Spider-Man: Homecoming” (July 7)
3. “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” (May 26)
4. “The Dark Tower” (August 4)
5. “Dunkirk” (July 21)
6. “Despicable Me 3” (June 30)
7. “War for the Planet of the Apes” (July 14)
8. “Transformers: The Last Knight” (June 21)
9. “The Mummy” (June 9)
10. “Baywatch” (May 25)
