Google just released its end-of-year list for top trends in various search categories, and not surprisingly, Wonder Woman was the top comic book movie to be searched in 2017.
It's not a surprising win for DC Films and Warner Bros.; while Fox and Marvel put out some big films (Logan, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok), nothing captured the zeitgeist or set down as many milestones as Wonder Woman did. Director Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot struck a major chord for feminism in a year where women's rights has quite possibly become the biggest talking point in our culture.
In addition to that, Wonder Woman was also the sort of throwback heroic adventure that comic book movie fans have been searching for ever since Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie, with some classic moments and big twists that definitely made it a conversation-starter. The year was filled with comic book movies being a popular search topic, with Logan, Justice League and Thor: Ragnarok all cracking the top ten.
