As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to introduce more and more female heroes who could easily carry their own film—like Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, half the cast of Black Panther, and of course Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow—Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has simultaneously been the biggest supporter and the biggest roadblock to bringing them all together for a female-led Marvel team-up movie. He’s been talking about a Black Widow movie ever since she popped up in Iron Man 2, and back in 2014 he acknowledged how eager people were to see female-led comic book movies. Most recently, a bunch of women who have appeared in Marvel movies confronted Feige at an MCU event and asked when they would get their own movie, to which he supposedly responded that he’d make it happen.
Speaking with Vulture, Kevin Feige once again indicated how much he’d like to make a female-led Marvel movie, referencing how much audiences seem to enjoy a particularly badass Black Panther sequence with Danai Gurira’s Okoye, but he still stops short of actually announcing he’s working on one. He says “all of” the female MCU heroes “will be seen again,” most likely referring to Avengers: Infinity War, but he says Marvel Studios is still trying to figure out “when and how” it could bring these characters together aside from that.
Feige also touched on the recent paparazzi leaks revealing Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel in an unusually green costume. He didn’t say much, but he did indicate that “people online have correctly identified what’s going on there,” implying that a popular theory about the costume—that it’s a suit she wears early in the story that will eventually be replaced by a more comics-accurate look—is on the money.
