Google Confirms Wonder Woman As Most-Searched Comic Book Movie Of 2017, But It Takes Home Top Prize


Wonder Woman is many things to many people – a modern feminist icon, an inspired tale of heroism, Gal Gadot’s launch pad to superstardom…you name it.

It’s also the highest-rated comic book movie of the year, according to Rotten Tomatoes, which placed Wonder Woman in the same bracket as Logan, Thor: Ragnarok and Spider-Man: Homecoming. But Patty Jenkins’ critically-adorned origins movie reigned supreme in another ranking: Google’s Year in Search for 2017.

And so, after crowning Avengers: Infinity War as the year’s most popular trailer, Google has revealed Wonder Woman to be the most-searched comic book movie of 2017. And we can’t say we’re surprised.

Back in June, the Patty Jenkins-directed period piece took the world by storm with its heartfelt story and instantly likable characters – the chemistry between Gal Gadot and Chris Pine was arguably worth the price of admission alone – while word of mouth and general online buzz undoubtedly had a big impact on Wonder Woman‘s social rankings.

Indeed, as you’ll see below, the superhero spinoff was beaten out by another Warner Bros. property – and no, we’re not referring to Justice League, which placed fourth in Google’s year-end rankings. Instead, Wonder Woman was pipped at the post by It, the R-rated sensation that launched a million nightmares back in September.

Here’s confirmation of the top 10, courtesy of Google:

Wonder Woman
Beauty and the Beast
Justice League
The Fate of the Furious
Baahubali 2: The Conclusion
La La Land
Thor: Ragnarok

Coming out of her role in Justice League, Diana Prince will now begin dusting herself down in anticipation of the so-far untitled Wonder Woman sequel. It’s currently on course for a release in November of 2019 – six weeks earlier than initially planned.

Pennywise, on the other hand, will also stage his second coming in two years’ time, when the conclusive Chapter Two haunts theaters. And if for some reason you still haven’t seen the first part of New Line’s adaptation, be sure to pick up It on Blu-ray, as it’s now available to pre-order on Amazon!
