Avengers: Endgame is still crushing it at the box office, but it’s not the last Marvel Cinematic Universe film fans are excited about in 2019. Spider-Man: Far From Home is hitting theaters this summer, and based on a recent Fandango survey, it’s the most anticipated film of the season. According to Yahoo Entertainment, Fandango “polled more than 2,000 moviegoers” for their “Most Anticipated Summer Movie Survey” with the purpose of discovering “what fans are most excited to spend their money on at the box office from Memorial Day to Labor Day.”
Spider-Man: Far From Home was crowned “Most Anticipated Summer Blockbuster,” followed by Rocketman, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Dark Phoenix, The Lion King, Toy Story 4, Men in Black: International, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, Aladdin, and The Secret Life of Pets 2.
Spider-Man: Far From Home also scored the top spot in the “Most Anticipated Actress” category with fans eager to see Zendaya as MJ. Tom Holland came in at number three and Jake Gyllenhaal at number five for “Most Anticipated Actor," with fellow MCU actor, Chris Hemsworth, taking the top spot for Men in Black: International.
