More details are emerging with the hopes that Marvel will launch a superhero movie starring a female character. “Guardians of the Galaxy” female scribe Nicole Perlman revealed in a recent interview with TIME, that the studio will have a go at its first female-centric film. Sharing how she came onboard the James Gunn film, the scribe also mentions Marvel’s plans for the female superhero pic:
“I can’t tell you what the other titles were that they were offering up on the table, but I can tell you that one of them was a little bit more appropriate for me, just based on gender. I think they were a little taken aback when I chose Guardians, because there were ones that would make a lot more sense if you were a romantic-comedy writer or something like that.”
It seems that the race is on for the super females to make their mark on Hollywood. DC is also working on a plan to see “Wonder Woman” making strides toward the silver screen. Gal Gadot is already signed on for Three Movies as the Amazonian warrior, starting with Zack Snyders “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” set to be released on April 28, 2016.
In meantime, Marvel is gearing up for “Avenger: Age of Ultron” set to be released on April 23, next year. Director Joss Whedon recently spilled the beans about the leading ladies in the upcoming Marvel movie, saying that there are ‘Four Prominent Female Roles’. Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Maria Hill (Colbie Smulders) are already confirmed for “Age of Ultron,” but will we finally see Carol Danvers a.k.a. Miss Marvel in action as previously rumoured?
This brings us back to rumors making the rounds earlier this year that “we will see an iteration of Captain Marvel onscreen by 2016 – either at the end of Phase Two or the beginning of Phase Three.” With all the speculation and rumors we have to draw up our own conclusions with nothing set in stone. It will be highly unlikely for Black Widow to get her own solo movie because Marvel head Kevin Feige already said they would rather make a movie about a completely new character because Black Widow has seen her fair share of screen time.
The possibilities for Marvel are endless and we would really love to see Captain Marvel kicking ass and taking names. What about your opinion geeks, which female superhero would you prefer to see on the big screen!
