Captain Marvel Beats Avengers: Endgame As IMDb’s Most Anticipated Movie Of 2019


Marvel fans across the internet are currently losing sleep wondering what’s to come in next year’s Avengers: Endgame, but according to new analysis from IMDb, the Avengers: Infinity War sequel just loses out to Captain Marvel as the most anticipated movie of 2019.

Obviously ‘anticipation’ is a very subjective metric, but the site is reportedly basing their findings on an assortment of numerical data, including page views and the MOVIEmeter rankings from IMDb Pro, and it seems that moviegoers are feeling pretty pumped right now about seeing Carol Danvers make her MCU debut, pushing Endgame into second place.

At third place, meanwhile, is X-Men: Dark Phoenix which has endured a troubled journey and not always the best buzz but apparently has the curiosity of the public. At number four is Quentin Tarantino’s controversial drama Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman sits at five.

At six, Dark Phoenix star Jessica Chastain makes her second appearance on the list by way of It: Chapter Two, while Split sequel Glass is at seven and Warner Bros.’ standalone Joker movie is at eight. The list is then rounded out by the live-action Aladdin remake and the Hellboy reboot.

But to take things back to those top two, you could perhaps argue that the relative lack of official details on Endgame would make people less inclined to spend time on the film’s IMDb page, which only just recently got a trailer, poster, and official title. But regardless of how ‘accurate’ this anticipation ranking is, it’s clear that excitement levels are insanely high for Captain Marvel and we’ll find out if the film can live up to the hype when it hits theaters on March 8th, 2019. After that, Avengers: Endgame comes out on April 26th.
