To movie fans, the two characters that make up the title of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice don't deserve top billing. The third character in the DC Comics trinity is the biggest reason they're going to see the film.
In a Fandango survey, as reported by Deadline, Wonder Woman, as played by Gal Gadot, is the primary draw for fans to see the new film, officially opening Friday but debuting at 6pm screenings Thursday night. A staggering 88% surveyed said Wonder Woman's debut was a primary reason for their interest in the film. In contrast, only 66% said they're seeing it because they're fans of director Zack Snyder, and 60% are excited to see Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.
Fandango also said that of this weekend's early ticket sales, Batman v Superman makes up 90% of them, and as previously reported, that puts it at the highest pre-sales of any superhero movie ever.
