‘Avengers: Endgame’ Named 2019’s Most Anticipated Blockbuster by Fandango Users

Tom Hanks, Brie Larson, Naomi Scott and Mena Massoud were top among actors and actresses

“Avengers: Endgame,” “Captain Marvel” and “Star Wars: Episode IX” were picked as the three most anticipated movies of the new year, according to Fandango’s 2019 Most Anticipated Movies Survey.

Brie Larson as “Captain Marvel” and Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers in “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” (and Woody in “Toy Story 4”) were each voted 2019’s Most Anticipated Actress and Actor by the Fandango’s users.

More than 3,500 people participated in the survey, which also named Naomi Scott (“Aladdin,” “Charlie’s Angels”) and Mena Massoud (“Aladdin”) its Rising Female Movie Star and Rising Male Movie Star, respectively.

“The popularity of superhero movies is at an all-time high as we head into the new year,” says Fandango managing editor Erik Davis. “Marvel fans are particularly anxious for the final ‘Avengers’ chapter after that ‘Infinity War’ cliffhanger, and are eagerly awaiting the studio’s first standalone female superhero, ‘Captain Marvel.’ It’s also clear Star Wars fans are missing their December fix, and they cannot wait for the next chapter in the Skywalker saga, ‘Episode IX.'”
