Fans are apparently more excited to see Thor and Hulk reunite on a distant planet than they are to watch Batman and Wonder Woman assemble the Justice League.
Director Taika Waititi's film sees Marvel's god of thunder also team with Valkyrie and Loki in a bid to stop Hela from destroying Asgard. It comes in ahead of Justice League, which unites the key players of the DC Extended Universe against the forces of Apokolips. The top five, as selected by 1,000 movie fans, is rounded out by Blade Runner 2049 (arriving Oct. 6), Kingsman: The Golden Circle (Sept. 22) and It (Friday).
Thor: Ragnarok also bested Justice League in the most-anticipated actor category, with Chris Hemsworth topping the list, followed by Heimdall actor Idris Elba at third; Ben Affleck, who reprises his role as Batman in Justice League, came in at No. 5. The DCEU fared better in the actress category, however, with Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot leading the list, followed by Thor: Ragnarok actress Cate Blanchett, who plays Hela, at No. 2.
Arriving Nov. 3, Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/the Hulk and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
Opening Nov. 17, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Raymond Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Amber Heard as Mera and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
