The Marvel Cinematic Universe actresses assembled together in real life and requested Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, to allow an all-female Avengers mash-up movie.
In an interview with Variety Magazine, MCU's Captain Marvel Brie Larson opened up about their intention to have an epic Girl Power Movie under Marvel Studios.
Larson confirmed that her Marvel co-stars already talked with Feige to make the film a reality. The request started after their superb all-female scene in Avengers: Endgame, where Captain Marvel appeared on the screen with all the women of Avengers and fought against Thanos.
Before the release of Avengers: Endgame, 10,070 signatures were already signed on the petition for an all-female Marvel movie. Feige had also spoken about it, but he is yet to give the green light to make the dream movie a reality.
Years in the Making?
Back in 2017, during an interview with Comic Book Resources, Tessa Thompson (MCU's Valkyrie) stated that they already mentioned the idea of an all-female Marvel fim to the president
Meanwhile, last year, Danai Gurira (MCU's Okoye) told Ellen DeGeneres the same objective of producing a film with a storyline that comes from women.
Following the statements, 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' star star Evangeline Lili confirmed in a 2018 interview that the MCU women already talked about having a film with only MCU women to appear.
Now, as Larson stated, the women are really doing their best to push Feige to making the film happen.
How Did They Do It?
In a brief interview with Elizabeth Wagmeister during Variety's Power of Women cover shoot, Larson was asked how they approached Feige about the film. Larson, however, just replied how bad they want to do it and how they are all in this together.
Wagmeister also asked about the achances of the boss granting their wish, but Larson quickly said that it's not really up to her. She then asked fans to continue to talk about it in hopes of encouraging Marvel to make it happen.
Nonetheless, if they will be granted of the opportunity, Larson believes the film will bring the MCU actresses closer together. For the actress, it is a positive experience to work with more women, as they see those female superheroes in major roles are finally conquering the center stage of films.
Marvel Studios has been putting a lot of effort to produce female-led films like Captain Marvel, which earned over $1 billion in sales worldwide.
Following the movie is Scarlett Johansson's solo flick "Black Widow" film, which is expected to hit the theaters some time in 2020. There are also other notable upcoming additions to the studio such as "The Eternals" with Angelina Jolie is the lead, and "Thor: Love and Thunder" with Natalie Portman.
The releases will not stop even after the recent controversy involving Martin Scorsese. The renowned filmmaker compared Marvel Cinematic Universe's movies to theme parks, as they do not have the essence of real cinema.
