Fandango has released its annual list of the most anticipated films of the summer, and Marvel’s biggest blockbuster yet, Avengers: Infinity War, is the this year’s No. 1 pick.

Whether or not you feel an April release counts as a “summer” film is subjective — last year’s offerings fell between Memorial Day and Labor Day, while the 2018 list conveniently begins on April 27, the date of Infinity War‘s debut. Regardless, more than 4,500 fans voted in the survey to put Earth’s Mightiest Heroes at the top of the list.

The list of most anticipated blockbusters of the summer include a whole lot of sequels: Deadpool 2, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Incredibles 2, Mama Mia: Here We Go Again, Sciario: Day of the Soldado, and Ant-Man and the Wasp are all part of the top 10. Rounding out the list are spin-offs or series continuations like Solo: A Star Wars Story, Ocean’s 8, and Mission: Impossible – Fallout.

The survey also included categories for the summer’s biggest actors — Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool 2) and Sandra Bullock (Oceans 8) are the fan-favorite actor and actress for 2018’s summer films. Fans also voted for rising stars like Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story) and Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), as well as Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Solo: A Star Wars Story).

Incredibles 2, Christopher Robin, and Hotel Transylvania 3 topped the Family Film category, while Crazy Rich Asians made the list for both Live-Action Comedy and Summer Sleeper. Fans are also chose The Spy Who Dumped Me and Sorry to Bother You for the Comedy and Sleeper categories, respectively.

The summer season officially begins (apparently!) next week with the release of Infinity War. See the full results from Fandango’s annual survey below:
