Digital movie network Fandango revealed the results of its 2017 Summer Movies survey—the site’s largest moviegoer survey ever—in which Wonder Woman was selected as the season’s most anticipated blockbuster.

Rounding out the top five fan picks for the summer are Spider-Man: Homecoming, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Stephen King’s The Dark Tower and Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. The top ten was completed by Despicable Me 3, War for the Planet of the Apes, Transformers: The Last Knight, The Mummy and Baywatch

More than 10,000 film fans voted online from April 27 to May 19, representing the largest response to a moviegoer survey in the company’s 17-year history. Fans were asked to pick the one movie they were most looking forward to seeing on the big screen between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Wonder Woman (opening June 2) is currently outpacing Captain America: The First Avenger at the same point in the Fandango sales cycle. Fandango is also seeing brisk sales for its branded “Wonder Woman” gift cards, which can be found at fandango.com/giftcards.

•  92% are excited to see a standalone female superhero movie.

•  87% wish Hollywood would make more movies featuring female superheroes.
