I’m pretty excited to see Wonder Woman in theaters this summer, so it is no ‘wonder’ that Fandango has announced that Wonder Woman is making history as the first female-driven film to top their annual survey of most anticipated summer movies.

More than 10,000 film fans voted online from April 27-May 19, representing the largest response to a moviegoer survey in the company’s 17-year history. Fans were asked to pick the one movie they were most looking forward to seeing on the big screen between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

What Makes ‘Wonder Woman’ So Appealing?

Wonder Woman

According to a separate Fandango survey of Wonder Woman fans:

  • 92% are excited to see a standalone movie starring a female superhero.
  • 87% wish Hollywood would make more movies featuring female superheroes.
  • 80% claim Gal Gadot’s appearance as Wonder Woman was one of their favorite parts of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

I can relate to those results. I’d love to see more women as superheroes in standalone roles. I can remember back to the days of Tomb Raider and being so excited as a kid to see a woman taking on all this action and adventure. I’m happy to say there is now a movie hero I can take my daughter to see on the big screen as well!

“It’s a thrill to see “Wonder Woman” command the top spot on our most anticipated summer movies list,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “Early screening reactions are positive, with audiences responding favorably to the film’s exciting blend of action, adventure, humor and romance. Plus, fans have been waiting their entire lives to see a live-action “Wonder Woman” movie, and the film’s breakout star Gal Gadot makes it worth the wait.”
