Marvel’s Kevin Feige Wishes Captain Marvel Were First. I Say, Be the Studio That Has MORE THAN ONE.

One of the reasons that we love the Wonder Woman solo film so much, in addition to Patty Jenkins' masterful direction and a damn-near-perfect performance by Gal Gadot, is because it was the first time that moviegoers got a genuinely good film with a female superhero at its center.
