Women have always played essential roles in big-budget superhero films. Be it the doting love interest Mary Jane, the super villain Hela, or the loyal team member Black Widow, these iconic female characters have stolen the show. However, they’ve rarely been given the spotlight with lead roles in film. Wonder Woman has led the move, and now Marvel is following suit.
A new character that will be introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Captain Marvel, the title character in the first female-led Marvel superhero movie. Also known as Carol Danvers, the powerful figure will be played by Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson. A Black Widow standalone movie has also been announced, with Scarlett Johansson reprising her popular role. There has even been talk of creating an all-female ensemble Marvel movie – basically a female Avengers’ flick!
