Sue might be able to be done soon with how little forward movement the reboot is getting.

Black Widow, Captain Marvel, Spider Woman, Mockingbird, The Heroes for Hire, etc. There are plenty of female superheroes that Marvel Studios can make movies of, or TV shows for that matter.

Captain Marvel, Mockingbird, and Spider Woman are the ones I'd be most happy to see in a film. Mockingbird especially because she probably has the most interesting connections to the team (Hawkeye the most obviously) and her death scene would really make for an interesting and dynamic movie moment.

They could've also done something greater and more impactful with Sue Storm. But they can't, unfortunately.

It still doesn't excuse the lack of female representation in MCU's hero lineup, but I could see how it delays production on a big franchise focused on one of their female characters, simply because so few of Marvel's female hero lineup isn't nearly as recognizable to the public as the X-Men and Fantastic Four. Still though, if they announced a Captain Marvel movie, it would raise awareness for their main female Avenger in the public.
I can somewhat understand that point. However, not many people in the GA knew who Iron Man was before RDJ came along. Even fewer people knew who Thor was, and VERY few know who the GOTG and Ant Man are. Marvel had no problem greenlighting those films, so why no female films?

There is a possibility of doing more stuff with Peggy Carter:

Sackhoff's comments don't necessarily mean "Age of Ultron." It could also mean Ant Man, which starts shooting early next year as well.

Of course it could mean anything. But Im pretty sure Ant-Man doesnt start filming until summerish next year since it doesnt come out until winter 2015. She said First Quarter.....soooo

Edgar Wright says that he is starting pre-production on Ant Man next month, which likely means that by Comic-Con 2014, we will already know who's cast in Ant Man. It's expected that by the Christmas holidays, there will be a list of candidates to play Hank Pym and Scott Lang, with final announcements not expected until probably in January or February.

If the film was to start shooting in April or May, Wright would have waited until January or February to began pre-production.

Ant Man may already be done with filming by Next year's Comic-Con.

I completely agree with your points, and it's an industry-wide issue. Like I said, it doesn't excuse the fact that Marvel's slow with developing female centric CBMs. Studios everywhere don't like to green light action pictures that have females at the center of the storytelling and butt-kicking. That's why we have to keep talking about it and putting pressure on Hollywood to change their ways.

I would say that IM and Thor and The Hulk were pretty well-recognized prior to their movies getting made. Ant-Man? He was hand picked by Edgar Wright and Marvel wanted to work with him. It's basically been in a long in-development period and is only finally now getting off the ground.

As for GOTG, I think, or at least I hope, it signals that Marvel's willing to take bigger risks with development of their properties. It's a cosmic, family-friendly action adventure with merchandising potential out the wazoo. But it does have one of the more diverse (racial and gender) casts so far, and signs point to Gamora and Nebula having some really good development and action.

I'm extremely critical of Marvel in this department, believe me. But I'm also hopeful that they'll do right by us fans clamoring for more diversity.

Does anyone know who owns the rights to Deathbird or The Brood? If Fox owns both of those, that kind of means two less villains for Carol to fight.

As long as a demon named Marcus isn't the villain, I'm good.

I would be absolutely over the moon if Katee Sackhoff was cast as Carol! Now I can't see anyone else in the role. She knows Joss Whedon too so it makes sense.

Count me in for Starbuck as Captain Marvel! I'd also accept Kerry Washington, Rosario Dawson, or Anna Torv.

But Katee Sackhoff's always been one of my top choices for Carol Danvers.

Those two would be Monica Rambeau, who will probably never be in MCU.

The character "at the center of the storytelling and butt-kicking" in every X-film but First Class is Wolverine. His perspective is the audience's perspective. The rest of the characters you listed have a little action and maybe a subplot or two but it all flows through Logan

Suzanne is very clearly referring to the lead role in these films, as that is the entire basis of this thread and the larger conversation about female representation in the genre

Of the leading ladies of Marvel. The films I most want are Ms Marvel, Elektra (done well), Spider Girl (May Parker), and Black Widow.
