Wikipedia revealed the most popular English articles on its site in 2019, as compiled by researcher Andrew West, in a blog post on Friday. As it turns out, readers of the nonprofit internet encyclopedia were mainly interested in which films and television shows were trending, followed closely by celebrity deaths.
Marvel featured prominently thanks to films like “Avengers: Endgame” and “Captain Marvel,” as did major shows like HBO's “Game of Thrones.” There was also a lot of interest in the backstories of popular titles, with users looking up Queen's lead singer, Freddie Mercury (the main character of “Bohemian Rhapsody”), and the Chernobyl disaster (thanks to HBO's miniseries about the incident).
