Fandango has named the winners of a fan poll in which its users voted for their favorite female superheroes and supervillains.
Fandango users named Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman their favorite female superhero, while Cate Blanchett's Hela was the top choice among female villains.
“As we begin to celebrate Women’s History Month, movie fans are selecting Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Saldana’s Gamora and Wright’s Shuri as their favorite superhero embodiments of female strength and empowerment,” said Fandango Correspondent Alicia Malone in a statement. “With Blanchett’s role as Hela landing in the top spot for female supervillains, it’s clear that fans love to see masterful performers bringing to light the wickedest of characters.”
Along with polling its users' favorite female heroes and villains, the online ticket retailer asked two questions, polling whether fans wanted to see more female heroes and more female villains in super hero movies over all, and the response was clear.
Among 1000 "millennial aged" Fandango users, 95% want to see more female heroes, and 93% want to see more female villains.
