A Marvel Female Superhero Film May Just Be In The Cards
Marvel usually has strong female characters in their films, but we haven’t had a female-led superhero film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe just yet. Louis D’Esposito, who is a producer and director of many of the Marvel One-Shot films, has repeatedly teased the possibility of a female superhero movie. D’Esposito has brought up Captain Marvel‘s name specifically a few times. The director/producer brings her up once again when asked when exactly we’ll see the ladies of the Marvel Universe getting some action.
Speaking with ComingSoon.Net, D’Esposito (who recently directed the Agent Carter one-shot) talked about a very, very tentative plan for the future of female-driven superhero films:
There’s obviously a drumbeat that is banging louder and louder that we want a female lead superhero. [W]e have strong female characters in our films from Black Widow to Pepper Potts to Peggy Carter and you never know. Maybe there’s an offshoot film with one of them. Or Captain Marvel, you know?
D’Esposito brings up Captain Marvel a lot. Whether she is a particular favorite of the man or he just knows she has a large fanbase, it does seem possible she could make it into the movies before long. Black Widow seems like a logical spinoff for Marvel, but as D’Esposito points out doing a new movie is hard right now:
It’s hard. because we have a small group at Marvel. We do two films a year. To get those two films done and to do them right takes a lot of work and manpower. And female-power, obviously. To add a third film and to just put it in the slate right now is difficult. We have these next three, four, five films coming out and that’s what we’re really concentrating on.
Marvel does have a full dance card for the next few years. With Phase 3 just now starting to take shape, it would be an opportune time for Marvel to give the world a female-driven film. While DC is still trying to make a movie that isn’t about Superman or Batman, Marvel is giving audiences a gun-totting raccoon and a talking tree. Surely a female superhero film has to take priority in the near future. What do you think? Which lady would you like to see get her own film?
