It looks like 2020 will be a year when women will go a step further in Hollywood, according to a survey published today that highlights that the four most anticipated films next year are directed by women.
This trend seems unlikely if we consider that only five women were nominated for best director Oscars and a sometimes ambivalent Hollywood misogynist, which came to light thanks to the #MeToo movement, which toppled producer Harvey Weinstein.
Wonder Woman 1984, starring Gal Gadot, set to open in June in the US, was selected as the most anticipated movie of the year by more than 2,000 viewers consulted on the Fandango website.
Patty Jenkins re-directs Wonder Woman after the first film, based on DC Comics' Amazon heroine, grossed $ 820 million worldwide in 2017.
The next two on the list are also superhero movies.
Black Widow, who begins a new phase of Marvel movies, gives Scarlett Johansson's popular character her own movie. Set to be released in the US in May, the film is directed by Cate Shortland.
Chloe Zhao's The Forever will feature new Marvel characters in November played by a star-studded cast including Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and Kit Harington.
The fourth most anticipated movie next year is Niki Caro's Mulan, the latest in the series of classic cartoon remakes to be released in the US in March.
Other films that are also expected in 2020 are James Bond's No Time to Die, Pixar's "Soul," and Universal's Fast and Furious 9.
