Shulkie! She's the most successful Marvel heroine, with the record for the longest-running solo and she'd be real easy to introduce into the MCU.

Also:

(Don't lie. You know you'd pay to see this).

Spider-Woman's okay if you stick to her old series, but I think that would work better as a TV-show.

Captain (Ms.) Marvel has the right 'tude for a successful female solo, but she barely has enough material for one movie. They'd have to fill in/re-write a lot or it would be as generic as that last Green Latern movie.

As for Black Widow, I suppose you could make something out of her background, but the character's supposed to be secretive and deceitful. I think the movie would have to be from the perspective of another character, but then, would that still be a BW movie?

Yes she did, but she should never have.
Her powers had nothing to do with the Kree or Mar-vell so her being called that was forced.

A Black Widow film would be easy to create. There's plenty of material to tap into and they could expand upon established plot points in the MCU (such as Budapest.)

other= Storm. get her back from Fox.
PS- there's nothing that could be done with a Thundra film that couldn't be done with She-Hulk, and you'd have a good supporting role from Mark Ruffalo.

I'm trying to think if there is any female character Marvel Studios has the rights to that could star in her own picture. Besides black widow, absolutely none.

Actually you really don't *have* to tweak her origins it just may make for a better and easier film to do so.

And there's a lot of female characters Marvel has rights to to do solo films
Ms Marvel
She-Hulk
Spider-Woman
Mockingbird
Squirrel Girl( apparently a lot of people wanna see this)
Dazzler (don't ask how seeing as she's a mutant but Marvel said they have a script for her)
And countless obscure female characters that could be turned into big names

Although I do think Marvel need more strong female characters in their comics.

Does marvel really have the rights to Dazzler? I would have thought she was a fox character.

I guess they can always make it that she was bitten by a radioactive disco ball or something

Wait, what?! You're not talking about the Jim Shooter script, are you?

No, I've heard talk in ( relatively ) recent years that she was under consideration for Marvel. Apparently they do own the rights still, probably as a side effect of the original multimedia considerations. Her and, allegedly, Cable.

I'm definitely game for a Captain(Ms.) Marvel movie, as well as a Black Widow venture. Throw in any of the following:

Misty Knight/White Tiger Heroes for Hire-like team up
She-Hulk
Spider-Woman
S.H.I.E.L.D. movie with Maria Hill, Mockingbird, BW, and Daisy Johnson...

ETA: Someone mentioned America Chavez a page back. Hells yeah! America is awesome. Ditto Kate Bishop, although I really want a Hawkeye/Hawkeye team-up based on Fraction and Aja's amazeballs book.

Some might require a little tweaking of the backstories, but I think any of these characters could produce a hella fun movie.

She-hulk and Spider-woman are defined by being a female counterpoint to the male hero. I don't see them being able to be their own movie. The strongest females in comics seem to be part of a team and not individual heroes which is kind of sad. I would say only Wonder Woman has the name brand recognition to carry her own movie. I believe if Marvel had the rights, they would have done a movie with her by now.

Spider-Woman isn't a female counterpart to Spider-Man. They have absolutely nothing to do with each other. This is a misconception because of her name. She could definitely hold her own in a solo movie. I even think She-Hulk could too.

And yeah I have no idea how Marvel has the rights to Dazzler. She's probably one of the few but weird contract situations that Feige was talking about.

But to the general audience, the name will conjure up an association to spider-man.

^That name recognition can only be a good thing. As was said,she has next to nothing to do with Spider-Man,so the name will draw folks in, but then it's up to the film to capture the imagination of the audience.

So go with one of the many other names they've given her over the years.

Like Arachne.

Though honestly, I don't think it matters.
