Marvel Studios Presidents Kevin Feige has revealed that soon there will be more female superheroes in Marvel than the male ones. It’s been 10 years since Marvel began its journey with Iron Man and now it’s ready to head into its next phase with Captain Marvel.
The MCU has always been a bit gender biased but that’s going to change soon and it’s possible that there will be a movie which will only have all female characters teaming up to fight enemies. Tessa Thompson, Brie Larson and Scarlett Johannson are the current female leads in the franchise.
When asked about the future of Marvel after Avengers 4, Feige avoided revealing anything and even said that he’s cagey about what has to follow next. He went on to tell the changing gender balance that’s going to happen in MCU. He said that it would be amazing to see all the female characters onscreen together in a way they haven’t been seen yet. “I think we’re getting to the lint where we have many great female characters and it’s just the Marvel heroes and more than half would be just women,” says Feige in a press conference for Ant-Man & The Wasp.
Though right now Marvel is dominated by male heroes but we saw Black Panther featuring a wealth of female characters and hopefully Ant Man & The Wasp would be another step towards female domination in the future. Marvel still has a long way to go before they reach the point where there’s a female superhero film coming up but for now, we have a slight sense of the direction of travel.
The scene in Infinity War where Black Widow, Okoye and Scarlet Witch team up to defeat Proxima Midnigt was absolutely stunning and was appreciated by fans. In the past few years, movies like Wonder Woman and Black Panther have always proved that the we are ready for a more diverse line of superheroes.
