Things We Saw Today: Ragnarok‘s Tessa Thompson Wants An All-Female Marvel Movie
We’re all super-excited about Thor: Ragnarok for, among other things, Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie. Well, Thompson doesn’t want the badass female heroes and villains to stop with her and Hela. She gathered some other Women of Marvel to approach Kevin Feige at a Ragnarok press event to present the idea of an all-female film. As reported by Inverse, she said, “Recently I marched up with a couple of other women who work in Marvel and [asked Kevin Feige] ‘How about a movie with some female superheroes? Like all of them.”
The best part? He seems into it, too. She referenced the Lady Liberators from back in the day as a precedent, but you don’t even need to go all the way back to the 1970s for inspiration. I’d love an A-Force movie.
