Yeah, I have noticed the lack of women starring in the leading roles in superhero flicks. With that being said, I think another reason Ronda released those photos of her as Cpt. Marvel is ’cause maybe it’s her way of trying to get a new movement going? She fought for women to be allowed to fight in the UFC and she was a success at that… I think she’s trying to do the same for the superhero movie world, ya know? The superhero film franchises should give women more respect.
Well, “Wonder Woman” is getting her own film so that’s a start and we’ll see how that film does in the box office. If that film becomes a box office hit, I predict Warner Brothers & Disney/Marvel will do ever more female-centric superhero films with her in the leading role. If that film bombs then there probably won’t be more after that.
I remember seeing “Supergirl” with Helen Slater and that was a great film. Even though the film bombed, I thought that film was a well-made movie.
There are plenty of female superheroes with their own comics… it’s just that a lot of them never got movies made of them.
Cpt. Marvel should definitely happen. I also think She-Hulk should happen. What about Bat-girl? I think a Bat-girl movie should happen. There’s also Magdalene. I also think Black Widow should absolutely get her own film as well.
Forgot to mention that the “Underworld” movie franchise is based on a comic even though DC/Marvel isn’t involved with that one… that comic became a hit movie franchise. Selene is the hero.
We’ll wait and see how the “Wonder Woman” film does and hopefully that film does well in the box office so there can be more female-centric superhero films. I think there should be more. You should thank Ronda for bringing this to our attention.
