Marvel Studios Wants a Female-Led Superhero Film


With their cinematic universe continuing to grow, Marvel Studios is well aware that diversity should remain a key element of their offerings. As director/producer Louis D'Esposito pointed out in a conversation today with ComingSoon.net, one very tentative plan for the future involves a female-driven superhero film. (Cinema, Louis D’Esposito, Marvel Studios)

Probably be Ms Marvel. I wouldn't mind a She-Hulk film though.

I'd love to see a she-hulk movie but I struggle with how I think they should portray her. Do they go CG or find a well build sexy gal and paint her up ala Lou Ferigno.
Trunkz Jr  +   763d ago
I agree on the Ms. Marvel, shes pretty much Superman only... better ;)

I was talking to someone about this the other day. Because she wanted a black widow and hawkeye movie, basically Origin between them. I told her they would need a third to make it a big hit. Like how they were both ask to help track down the hulk, and barely survive

Go for it Marvel, if you want to lose money and produce another stinker of a superhero film.
Crazay  +   763d ago
soooo you don't like any of the movies or just specific ones?

I'm going to get eaten alive for this but I wouldn't mind a Rescue film featuring Pepper Potts where she has to save Tony Stark or maybe go off on her own adventure.

It could be very well made if done right. Would be nice for her to save Tony instead of the other way round like it usually is.

actually, i think that would be awesome.

especially after the ending of Iron Man 3.

and if RDJ isn't keen on doing stand alone Iron Man movies, maybe Gwyneth Paltrow could be persuaded to step up and take the lead in her own movie.

Maybe Rescue teams up with Iron Man in the future movies. Perhaps Pepper was accustomed to her brief time in the suit and wants more. Wait, isnt she infused with extremis?

Gonna go out on a limb here and say it'll be about one of the female X-Men (Storm or Rogue). A new Origins saga, perhaps. Wouldn't mind it, though. Either of those two are good choices.

i'd imagine fox owns the movie rights to those characters, almost anything to do with the X-Men, fox seems to hold the movie rights for.

somehow they managed to have Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch in Avengers 2 though.
i think so long as they make no mention of their family or them being mutants they can use them.

but i doubt any of the actual X-Men would be available.

kind of ridiculous that Marvel studios can't use some of the biggest Marvel comics characters.
like Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four.

marvels female heroes all are pretty lame compared to dc's outside of the xmen female characters. since they cant use xmen female characters though they have slim pickings.

marvel female hero they choose needs to be durable and strong. not she hulk people dont want to see female incredible hulk.
Simon_Brezhnev  +   762d ago
Yeah but she fights nothing like Hulk. She is agile and has charisma. She like the only clone character i like.
Tykis  +   762d ago
Yet DC is still struggling with getting a Wonder Woman film together... It's gunna take Marvel to release a solo female lead film to get DC into gear which is so frustrating. Considering how Wonder Woman is such a iconic character! More so than any other female character that marvel has.

Hopefully Marvel can do Ms Marvel film!
