The Women of Marvel Want an All-Female Avengers Movie, so Let’s Give It to Them
The sentiment continues to be that the women of the Marvel Cinematic Universe would love a female-led Avengers movie. Before Brie Larson took her first breath as Carol Danvers, Tessa Thompson brought up the idea for all the fans of her portrayal as Valkryie in Thor: Ragnarok.
So, now that we are on the verge of the release of Captain Marvel, can this mean Thompson’s dreams may come true? We got a taste of what an all-female Avengers could be at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, when Natasha Romanoff and Okoye team up with Wanda Maximoff to take on Proxima Midnight and, eventually, defeat her.
To help promote Captain Marvel, Screen Rant got to talk with Larson about her future in the MCU and what she hoped for with an all-female collaboration with the already existing women of the franchise. Larson, obviously, was down.
“I’m scared and I don’t know what the future holds either. I’m not let into those top-secret meetings, so we’ll see. We’ll see what happens. I love all the female characters so much. So of course like that’s what I’m interested in. I’m super into an all-female Avengers movie. Yeah, I think that would just be, it would just be cool to see all of them interact together.”
What’s interesting though is that this is something that we all enjoy as well. There’s something so powerful about the line “She’s not alone” in Avengers: Infinity War, and it’s significant because it’s one of the first times we’ve ever seen these characters interact together.
From the beginning of the MCU, Natasha Romanoff has been primarily the only woman we see fighting alongside our favorite heroes. Within the last five years, we’ve seen more and more women getting their time to shine, but within the last year, our time to feel included by the MCU has come.
From Okoye and Shuri to Carol Danvers and the future for women in the MCU, we’ve all started to see a shift in the franchise that gives us hope for what phase 3 can be. Look, I’m not saying that we have to say goodbye to the male characters we know and love. I’d hate that. I love seeing Captain America, Sam Wilson, and Bucky Barnes all fighting alongside each other. My favorite little son is Peter Parker.
But seeing an uptick in the number of women in a Marvel movie? Seeing an all-female Avengers (at least) for part of the movie? That’s something that would be incredible and would show the growth that the MCU has made throughout the last ten years.
Also … maybe these women can all actually be friends with each other and have scenes together? For a change? I’m not asking for much; just give me a Shawarma-like scene but with all the badass ladies of the MCU!
