“The terms ‘fandom’ and ‘fandom’ are often used to describe fans of entertainment, but these terms are very familiar to today’s entertainment industry — fandom is complicated,” Fandom CMO Stephanie Fried said in a statement. “Understanding fan segments and connecting with them at the right time and place will be critical for advertisers looking to succeed in broadcast, theater and video.”

Having more Advocates and Aspirants in the fandom, as Marvel (with 66%) does for DC (with 61%), can be an advantage for the franchise – but it’s not as cut and dry.

In contrast, only 38% of Marvel fans say they care about specific heroes instead of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, compared to 57% of DC fans who care about one or two heroes instead of the entire DC Universe. This may be the main reason why only 20% of DC fans say they are tired of the amount of content released in a year, compared to 36% of Marvel fans who feel the same way. Until September, Fandom declared that “The Batman” was “the biggest film in the world”. DC fans are also more than 20% more likely than Marvel fans to purchase merchandise – collectibles, apparel, and even highly inspired gaming products.
