Anybody who’s seen Avengers: Endgame—and contemplating it is now the highest-grossing film of all time, that is a complete lot of individuals—remembers a moment late in the film when Peter Parker/Spider-Man is operating away with Thanos’ gauntlet, and is knocked down. He is not down for lengthy, although, as a really particular grouping appeared to assist him out.
The group was comprised of Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts, Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, and Danai Gurira’s Okoye. You could have seen: All of those heroes are feminine. In a brand new interview with Variety, Larson made it clear that she desires this second, and the concept of a feminine Marvel hero team-up, to be greater than only a one-off scene.
“I’ll say that plenty of the feminine solid members from Marvel walked as much as [Marvel Chief Kevin Feige] and we had been like, We’re on this collectively, we need to do that,” she stated. “What which means, I do not know. You understand, I’m not in command of the way forward for Marvel, however it’s one thing that we’re actually captivated with and we love and I really feel like if sufficient folks out on the earth speak about how a lot they need it, perhaps it’ll occur.”
After missing a fundamental feminine protagonist for the primary 20 movies in its universe, two out of the MCU’s final three solo outings may have been female-focused by the point Black Widow is launched subsequent Might. The primary of these, in fact, was Larson’s solo flip because the titular Captain Marvel in final March’s hit, which grossed over a billion worldwide.
We all know that Marvel is targeted on telling female-focused tales going ahead, even in franchises the place that beforehand wasn’t at all times obligatory on the forefront; at San Diego Comedian Con, Feige introduced that Natalie Portman would be returning to the Thor franchise, alongside Chris Hemsworth and Thompson, to play the ‘Feminine Thor’ from a much-loved comics arc. There have additionally been bulletins surrounding a Scarlet Witch-centered collection on Disney+ referred to as WandaVision that Olsen might be part of, together with a She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel collection as nicely.
From the sounds of Larson’s feedback, it feels like what she and a number of other of her fellow feminine MCU co-stars had been pushing for can be an Avengers-esque, all-female team-up movie; if the expertise was all on-board, which means Larson can be joined by Thompson, Portman, Paltrow, Olsen, and extra, and perhaps villains like Cate Blanchett (Thor: Ragnarok) return? That feels like a film price making.
