No doubt buoyed by the blockbuster success of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” was named as the most-anticipated film of 2016 in a survey conducted by Fandango.

The online ticketing service asked visitors in the final weeks of December which films, stars and roles they’re most looking forward to in the coming year. The first standalone “Star Wars” movie topped the list, followed by “Finding Dory,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the new Jason Bourne film and “Captain America: Civil War.”

    Aw, that’s so cute. Some people are actually looking forward to seeing Zack Snyder’s Batman & Wonder Woman movie.

    Yeah this doesn’t represent me or my opinions so let’s just say some people’s most anticipated.

  • Shizzle My Nizzle

    plainly a shitload of people are, ya gd curmudgeon.

  • Robert Dassler

    People who clearly need their heads examined. At least Daredevil is coming out the same day. That way people can go and see Batman & Wonder Woman then go home and ease the pain by binge watching the second season on Netflix.

    I’m genuinely surprised Warcraft didnt rate somewhere in the top 10 of this list. Where do they get this info from and how big a pool of people? I would comfortably estimate over 25 million people world wide have had something to do with World of Warcraft and Blizzard products over the years. Hard not to acknowledge a fan base like that and then add in the people that the trailer appealed to that dont know anything about Warcraft

    Bull shit list I say.

    Clearly people want a Wonder Woman movie but could care less for Gal Gadot.

    I didn’t like Zack Snyder’s Superman either, and I’m pretty sad that he’s one of the main architects of the DCCU. But even then, it’s pretty hard to deny the excitment over Superman and Batman’s first big screen, live action meeting.

    How, exactly, is that clear?
