The partner film is part of why I think Ms. Marvel is the best and easiest, because she comes with a built in partner: Mar-Vell. And while fans did not initially like her new uniform, it definitely doesn't have that anal thing going on, and wouldn't provide any stir whatsoever at this point.

Cloak and Dagger would be interesting, but having them as Avengers would be a little odd, imho.
Good points. I hadn't thought about a team up/partner film with Mar-vell. That could work, and it certainly is a good way to bring an extra female hero into the realm. Good stuff!

I think Marvel is looking beyond just Avengers tie-ins. What are your thoughts on Cloak and Dagger leading to other story lines/teams? With Dr. Strange being designed to become the next Tony Stark/IM as hub for Phase 3 and beyond, do you see any way a Cloak and Dagger film could be effective for (a) female heroes and (b) used in any team fashion (Defenders antagonists) or growth of a magic direction?

I didn't think Cloak and Dagger were magic, but yeah, they could definitely be used in a different team, if that's what Marvel's going for. And yeah, that would clearly be a super powered female.

I'm kind of hoping that Marvel's renewed interest in Monica Rambeau (since she will not only be a part of the upcoming Mighty Avengers title, but serve as the team's field leader AND has yet another name change) will lead to an appearance in a future Avengers film. A2 is highly unlikely, but maybe A3. If we are struggling to get a Black Panther film, clearly a Monica Rambeau/Captain Marvel/Photon/Pulsar/Spectrum solo film would be completely out of the question, even though I would love to see it.

I think 'Cloak and Dagger' is best presented as an urban fairytale. It can address the issue of runaway kids, drug pushers, but also cast them as the 'patron saints of lost children'.

Not all of Marvel's films have to have the same theme or plot. Writers shouldn't about how a superheroine can take the place of a male superhero. They should focus on what kind of journey the heroine is taking that is unique to her. How does that make a story?
