Kevin Feige talks Captain Marvel film: “I think that would be very cool.”

March 16th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

One of the criticisms that Marvel Studios’ gets quite often is lack of female superhero movies. While I agree with the idea, I don’t think Marvel is just to blame. I mean the most popular female superhero of all time, Wonder Woman, doesn’t have a film either. There’s enough blame to go around.

There’s been some talk of a potential Black Widow movie and rumors of Captain Marvel appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron and people that might be interested in playing her.

In a recent interview with Badass Digest, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige indicates they would perhaps rather do a film with a new female character who hasn’t been in the films yet:

“Frankly if we do a Black Widow movie after Age of Ultron, when she’s been central in three or four movies I don’t think we’d get the quote unquote credit for it. People would say ‘She’s already a big giant superhero!’ But if we had a great idea, we’d do it….I like the idea if we’re going to do a [female lead] do a new one. Do a wholly new character, do an origin story.”

Feige was then asked about Captain Marvel:

“We’ve talked a lot about [Captain Marvel]. I think that would be very cool.”

Badass Digest’s Devin Faraci also added what he’s heard:

“My sources tell me that we will see an iteration of Captain Marvel onscreen by 2016 – either at the end of Phase Two or the beginning of Phase Three – in another Marvel movie.”

Captain Marvel is a fan favorite and badass in her own right. Not only is she a strong female character, but a leader, and a powerhouse. With Marvel expanding its universe with Guardians of the Galaxy and Agents of SHIELD, the Kree will be easy to introduce. In fact Ronan one of the villains in Guardians is one. The Kree play a key role in Carol Danvers getting powers.
