While Avengers: Endgame changed the MCU forever, one moment in the film was incredibly uplifting for younger female fans, as they saw the women of the MCU join forces to fight Thanos. While the moment was brief, it got a lot of people talking.
Brie Larson, who plays Captain Marvel in the film, recently told Variety that the actresses who play Marvel's female heroes are passionate about this possibility and making it into a reality. "I will say that a lot of the female cast members from Marvel walked up to [Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige], and we were like, 'We are in this together, we want to do this,'" said Larson. "What that means, I have no idea. You know, I'm not in charge of the future of Marvel, but it is something that we're really passionate about, and we love and I feel like if enough people out in the world talk about how much they want it, maybe it'll happen."
Earlier this year, Larson starred as the titular Captain Marvel, a film making over $1 billion worldwide. And as far as female-led Marvel movies go, there is more on the horizon with the Black Widow movie–starring Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Rachel Weisz, and Scarlett Johansson–will hit theaters on May 1, 2020.
While Gwyneth Paltrow isn't likely to return to the MCU as Pepper Potts, the MCU is full of characters who could lead the way for this hypothetical movie, including Captain Marvel, Shuri, Valkyrie, Gamora, Mantis, Okoye, Wasp, and Scarlet Witch. Obviously, if this movie were to happen, it would be way down the line, as Marvel already has announced its Phase 4 slate, leading up to the end of 2022. And that's not including movies without specific release dates yet like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Blade, and Captain Marvel 2.
