The female superheroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will return very soon, according to MCU head honcho Kevin Feige. With audiences asking for better representation in movies, Marvel Studios is making the effort to meet that need. They’ve got Captain Marvel coming in 2019 with Brie Larson, and Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp gets co-billing this summer in Ant-Man and The Wasp. Development is also finally underway on a Scarlett Johansson led Black Widow movie. While those are all starring roles, the universe has also added multiple important female characters in other movies.
One of the MCU’s biggest stars last year was Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok. Following the love she received, Thompson approached Feige with several other MCU female actors to discuss an all-female MCU movie team-up. The prospects of such a project have only continued to grow, especially now with Black Panther bringing in more new fan favorite female characters. Thankfully, fans won’t have to wait long to see them again.
