Recently, in honor of Marvel Studios revealing a glimpse of the future of the MCU through 2025, we asked you to help us decide which upcoming movie or TV show you were most excited for. Now, after thousands and thousands of battles with matchups like Avengers: The Kang Dynasty vs. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Blade vs. Daredevil: Born Again, a winner has been chosen.
So, which project claimed the top spot for the most anticipated upcoming MCU movie or TV show? Could any contender take down the might of an Avengers movie? Drum roll please…
Unsurprisingly, the answer was no. Avengers: Secret Wars, the film that Phases 4, 5, and 6 are leading towards and an adaptation of one of the most beloved comic runs, won 86.8% of its 60,860 battles. It was a bit of a lower win percentage than past Face-Offs, but it should come as no shock that an Avengers film not only took the top spot, but also the runner-up position as Avengers: The Kang Dynasty won 83.8% of its battles and finished right behind Secret Wars.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 lived up to its number and took third place with a 75.1% win ratio, and it was closely followed by the next live-action entry (or entries) of everyone’s favorite neighborhood Spider-Man. Fantastic Four rounded out the top five and was, at least until we know more about the next Spider film, the fourth film in the top five that features groups or crossovers.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and the big screen debut of Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror took seventh place behind Daredevil: Born Again, and Deadpool 3, Blade, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever made the cut for the most-anticipated MCU movies and TV shows that we know about.
On the other side of the multiverse, the rumored but not yet confirmed Wonder Man finished last with only 18.7%. The upcoming Disney+ series that reportedly has Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Avengers: The Kang Dynasty director Destin Daniel Cretton on as an executive producer has yet to receive its official announcement, so the excitement around the project has yet to go into full force.
The currently untitled Marvel Halloween Special placed right behind Wonder Man with a 21.8% win percentage and is also another project that hasn’t been officially revealed yet. I Am Groot, which is a series of shorts set to debut on Disney+ on August 10, came in third to last, and Echo and Agatha: Coven of Chaos rounded out the bottom five.
Finishing out the bottom 10 were Marvel Zombies, the Wakanda series, Ironheart, Season 2 of Marvel’s What If…?, and Spider-Man: Freshman Year. Many of these are either shorts, animated projects, or titles we so far know very little about.
