Marvel Studios/ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures(LOS ANGELES) -- As 2017 comes to a close, moviegoers are already looking forward to next year's movie releases -- especially superhero flicks. According to a Fandango poll, fans are most excited to see Avengers: Infinity War, while Marvel's Black Panther is the second most-anticipated release.

In fact, nine of the top 10 movies are either superhero, sci-fi or fantasy films, including the Deadpool sequel; Solo: a Star Wars Story; Incredibles 2; A Wrinkle in Time; the Fantastic Beasts sequel and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Where there's little diversity in genres, fans are excited for films with diverse casts. Black Panther features an all-black cast, including Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o. Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle In Time has a diverse cast that includes Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Pena and newcomer Storm Reid.

Maenwhile, Ocean's 8, which is the only non-sci-fi, superhero or fantasy movie on the list, has an all-female cast, including Sandra Bullock, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway and Cate Blanchett.
