Warner Bros.'s Wonder Woman is this summer's most anticipated blockbuster according to Fandango's 2017 Summer Movies survey. The Gal Gadot-led film comes in first, followed by Spider-Man: Homecoming, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, The Dark Tower, and Dunkirk. The survey was conducted April 27 through May 19, getting responses from over 10,000 Fandango users.

“It's a thrill to see Wonder Woman command the top spot on our most anticipated summer movies list,” said 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.”

In a seperate survey, 92% of those polled said they were "excited to see a standalone female superhero movie" and that 87% "wish Hollywood would make more movies featuring female superheroes." According to Fandango, Wonder Woman presales are exceeding those of 2011's Captain America: First Avenger.

Wonder Woman opens in North American theaters June 2.
