Default Potential female-led movies?

Captain Marvel will be the first female-led MCU film. Who else would you like to see getting their own film?

I'd kill for a Spider-Gwen movie.

It was Runaways, but that's getting a Hulu show now.

I would still like an Inhumans film with Medusa or Crystal as the lead.

Spider-Woman/Jessica Drew would certainly be on the shortlist.

Shanna the She-Devil is another one I would like to see.

Spiders dominate the list.

Shanna looks impossible for the present day.

Is it possible they will replace Hulk with She-Hulk at some point?

Ms. Marvel is the obvious choice for Phase 4 right now.

A-Force. Because seriously, who in their right mind would say no to a movie about Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, Wasp and Valkyrie (and possibly Gamora, Mantis and a few other new characters... heck even Sif, why not) all teaming up together to kick some ass?

I don't give a **** if it'd be sexist towards us men, just do it Marvel.

Aside from Captain Marvel, Black Widow, and Ms Marvel, I don't think there are any solo female-led movies that *need* to happen. Most of the other high profile heroines work best, and fit best, in a team environment. Doing a Scarlet Witch movie, say, purely for the sake of having one more solo heroine film probably isn't going to end well.

That said, if they did a Monica Rambeau movie following the premise "Superman as public ID policewoman", I'd be there day one. Both because I like Monica, and I would love to see a movie about someone suddenly granted high end superpowers, who *doesn't* work behind a mask.

Oh, for sure. By it's very nature, Spider-Gwen could never exist in the MCU. That's the beauty of it, though. It would be completely stand alone and have no bearing on what's going on with the MCU Spider-Man.

Black Widow. Kate Bishop seems more like a TV show, but I wouldn't say no to it.

Me too. Expense would be a problem though. But I think the character fits a series better than a film aside from the budget.

It'd be nice to see her going up against Matt in a courtroom drama. However, I think you'd could get by with a 6'2 She Hulk?

Exactly how I feel. But as time goes on, it will become easier for a She Hulk Netflix series to work

I still want a Scarlett Witch movie. With Agatha Harkness as her mentor

How do you even adapt She-Hulk to live-action? Unlike Hulk, her transformed form is still too close to her human one to work as a full CGI creation or to be played by a different actress. The other solution would be to dip whoever plays Jennifer in green paint, give her a different hairstyle and pretend that she's taller... and I have a feeling that the result would probably end up looking as stupid as the whole process sounds.

And I'd definitely prefer if she got her own movie instead of a series. I don't see what MS would gain by confining one of the few recognizable superheroines they still have to Netflix. Plus I just think mainstream cinema is badly in need of more female characters like her.

Kamala Khan! Too bad that Marvel got Spider-Man back*, making Ms. Marvel somewhat redundant.

*Now that is a horrible, horrible thing to say.

I doubt it. Marvel will have their hands full with sequels, plus there's Black Widow and The Inhumans. Marvel should wait until phase 5 for Ms Marvel. Have her following in the footsteps of Captain Marvel when Carol is a well established superhero. Kamala could replace Carol as part of a new Avengers team.

How to adapt She-Hulk? We got young Tony Stark in Civil War. So they should do it similarly. She's a regular woman most of the time, but when she transforms, she doesn't change drastically, her face is largely the same, but figure is more massive and muscular, taller and stuff like that. It's very much possible these days.

Pretty much. Only the body should be CGI. Which isn't a problem for modern magicians.

Do people still think Black Widow and the Inhumans are happening?

There's also a bunch of stuff to do with perspective shots or camera tricks to make a human Jen look smaller anyway.

Definitely Black Widow and, eventually, Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan, to catch the younger audiences.

A Scarlet Witch solo seems less likely, just because she's been introduced as a young character with no real backstory (unlike Widow, who seems to have plenty of interesting backstory). Something really interesting would have to happen to her in the present, which would beg the question of why it wouldn't also involve her half-dozen avenging buddies (which would make it automatically not much of a solo movie).

Monica Rambeau could be neat, as a spin-off from a hypothetical (and non-canonical/AU/absurd) Nextwave movie?

A Songbird spin-off from a hypothetical Thunderbolts movie?

Daughters of the Dragon/Hero(ines) for Hire (Misty and Colleen and maybe add Angela Del Toro/White Tiger, or Claire Temple, *or* Trish 'Patsy' Walker, sort of a Marvel version of DC's Birds of Prey?), after Defenders?

If Hawkeye ever gets a movie (ugh, so boring...), then that would be a good place to introduce Kate Bishop, and she could springboard to her own feature, if she catches fire.

As for She-Hulk, just hire the people who managed to make Ian McKellen's Gandalf tower over the 'hobbits' or made the second tallest actor in those movies (John Rhys-Davies) a dwarf, while actors shorter than him (like Orlando Bloom and Viggo Mortenson) seemed to be heads and shoulders above him. Whoever plays Jennifer doesn't have to *be* taller than everyone else, she just has to *look* taller than everyone else. (Although it would certainly help to hire an actress with an imposing physical presence, although one that can be concealed under a loose shirt, so that she can play the un-Shulked version of Jennifer as well.)
