Now that the aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War is calming down somewhat MCM Comic Con have revealed what other films people are looking forward to this year. The survey commissioned by the pop-culture marketing agency Experience12, saw that Incredibles 2, the much loved Parr family’s return to the big screen managed to beat Marvel’s upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp, starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly as well as Tom Hardy’s anti-hero Venom.
It also came as no surprise that only 25% of people chose DC over Marvel. We personally think those 25% of people need to re-watch some of those movies because it’s clear that they’re still loyal to the comics, certainly not the films. I think Wonder Woman is the only acceptable DC film that has come out recently.
When it came to Television, fans were most excited about seeing Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, which will be hitting Amazon Prime in August. The series, starring A Quiet Places’s star and director, John Krasinski was voted ‘Most Anticipated TV Series’ with 15% of the vote, narrowly beating Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger (13%) and Castle Rock (5%).
Experience12, the guys who ran this survey were responsible for several exhibitions on the day including Warner Bros. and Amazon Prime Video. Chris Whittle, Experience12 founder and Managing Director said: “As a pop culture agency we are always looking for new ways to understand our audience so asking the true fans at London’s MCM Comic Con is a no brainer. Some of the findings simply reaffirm what we already knew,, but having undertaken research at Comic Con for two years now, we’re starting to see some really interesting and unexpected trends developing which we’ll be sharing soon.”
