Kevin Feige addresses the female future of the MCU

Back in October, Tessa Thompson, one of our patron saints at Fangrrls, discussed her hopes for an all-female Marvel movie. This week, she spoke again about the possibility of this dream becoming a reality. "They’re doing Captain Marvel, they’re doing a Black Widow — there’s an interest in having women at the forefront of this phase."

And now the big boss himself is further stoking our fiery hopes for female-filled future, replete with the women of Wakanda.

“It is an embarrassment of riches,” Feige recently told Vulture with a big grin on his face. “Even watching the audience at the Black Panther premiere respond to Lupita, Letitia, and certainly Danai in their action sequences … you watch Danai spinning around in that casino, taking out dozens of people, and you go, ‘Of course you can make a whole movie about that!’”

Yes, they "can," but will they? Signs—and our crossed fingers—point to yes. It's just a matter of time. 

“It is all about figuring out when and how,” admitted Feige. “But by the way, many of them have already filmed additional scenes in upcoming movies, so some of that is gonna come sooner rather than later. All of them will be seen again.”


We'll see many of the women of Marvel in May's Avengers: Infinity War and, of course, next year's Captain Marvel. Beyond that, we're still wanting more, but this is definitely the future Fangrrls want.
