Kevin Feige Says More Women-Led Marvel Films Are On the Way

Marvel Comics

Feige said: 'With [Ant-Man and The Wasp] and now with Captain Marvel and many movies to be announced in the near future, I'm anxious for the time where it's not a novelty that there is a female-led superhero movie, but it is a norm. Now, she's set to get her very own superhero movie where she'll be played by actress Brie Larson, but which one of Carol Danvers' many costumes will she be wearing in the movie?

Although the Marvel Studios head didn't mention any of these movies by name, we should mention that Catwoman and Elektra came out in 2004 and 2005, respectively. While speaking to EW, Feige laid out Carol's character by calling her Kree half "unemotional" before adding that "this human part of her that is flawed, but is also the thing that she ends up leading by".

With films like Ant-Man and the Wasp and next year's Captain Marvel coming out of Marvel Studios, the studio does appear to be inching its way towards releasing more female-led films.

The upcoming Captain Marvel film will rewrite some of Danvers/Captain Marvel's origin story, and it takes place in the 90s, which explains why Jackson's Fury character is not wearing an eye patch and looking 20 years younger. He's also a "lowly S.H.I.E.L.D. desk jockey (who hasn't yet met any superheroes)", which is a far cry from his status within the Marvel Cinematic Universe as director of S.H.I.E.L.D. and recruiter of the Avengers.

Government spokesman Yoshihide Suga said two people had been killed, with local media reported around 40 were missing. Houses in the town were hit by landslides, and one report said five residents were found with no vital signs.

However, a couple of those EW exclusive promo images do suggest that her pre-powered life will be documented in some form, most likely via flashback.

Captain Marvel is set to be released on March 7, 2019. She's amusing, but doesn't always tell good jokes. They feature the first look at Brie Larson as the title character and of the shape-shifting aliens called the Skrulls.

Captain Marvel is the only film standing in the way of the highly-anticipated Avengers 4, which will serve as the follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War.
