The fall blockbuster season is almost knocking at the doors while it, feels like female moviegoers are hyped about a couple specifically.
According to the consequences of an exclusive survey that was finished by Atom Tickets, female moviegoers are most thrilled about the releases of Aquaman, Venom, and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The survey, the results of which were released on Women’s Equality Day, polled 10,000 women who are “frequent moviegoers”.
For Aquaman and Venom, these results are specifically exciting. Obviously, both the movies are already ranking as the most highly-anticipated Marvel and DC superhero movies for the remainder of the year, but their darker subject material might not seem like something that is stereotypically associated with female audiences.
Venom will see Tom Hardy starring as Eddie Brock, an intrepid reporter who accidentally gets bonded with a dark alien symbiote while investigating a corporate conspiracy. The film is expected to honour the character’s Marvel Comics roots in some most fascinating ways, even if that makes viewers of any gender a little squeamish.
“Our movie wants to honour the comics as close as we can tonally.” Venom director Ruben Fleischer told ComicBook.com last month.”In the comics, he bites people’s heads off and eats brains. It would be weird to make a movie with Venom if he wasn’t doing that. We tried to honour it as closely as possible. This is definitely a darker, more violent, more vicious Marvel character than I think anyone’s ever seen before.”
On the other side, Aquaman will present audiences with some amazing adventure, as Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) returns to Atlantis and confronts his heritage. Already, the film is being appreciated for its incredible moments and supremely talented actors, including Amber Heard’s Mera.
“She’s a leader. She has integrity,” Heard told reporters during a set visit last year. “Her and Arthur are very different, in fact, that’s part of what causes a lot of, you know, they don’t necessarily fit at the beginning. They’re constantly going back and forth and they earn this relationship with one another throughout the film as they learn to respect each other, given their vastly different approaches to life. Mera, for instance, unlike Arthur, has a very solid constitution, a strong sense of self, who she is, what her role is, what her position is. And the sense of duty and honour that she uses to approach all of the situations in her life is one that I respect and really like, and I admire that.”
