Captain Marvel, Lady Thor, Valkyrie and others heading for an A-Force movie in the MCU?

We know there has been rumours for a while that ABC may be planning an A-Force series to replace the current Agents of SHIELD when it ends next season, but now it seems that while ABC is considering a female-led series, the A-Force is headed to the big screen.


A new rumour has it that an A-Force movie is in the works at Disney for a big-screen MCU outing and it will be primarily made up of Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, Tess Thompson’s Valkyrie and the soon to be introduced in Thor: Love and Thunder, Lady Thor played by Natalie Portman and the soon to be added to Disney+ She-Hulk.

And, on top of that, it seems that America Chavez AKA Miss America will be added to the line-up after she too gets an in-development Disney+ series.

With it being the current year, it’s also expected that the movie will have female-only writers and director.

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has been toying with the idea of a female led Avengers-type movie for a while now, saying after Black Panther: “Watching the audience at the Black Panther premiere respond to Lupita, Letitia, and certainly Danai in their action sequences … you watch Danai spinning around in that casino, taking out dozens of people, and you go, ‘Of course you can make a whole movie about that!’”

Ant-Man and The Wasp star Evangeline Lilly talked about all the girls together in a single movie too and even has a structure in her mind already: “Well, it seems only natural Captain Marvel would lead because she is a general? And she’s the captain. And Captain America leads the other Avengers, right, so maybe Captain Marvel would lead.”

Brie Larson herself has even talked about it: “I’m super into an all-female Avengers movie. Yeah, I think that would just be, it would just be cool to see all of them interact together.”

I imagine that, wether this turns out to be on the money or not, Disney/Marvel are almost certainly adding an all-female team to the roster of the MCU. It also means that, if this does pan out, the Disney+ shows will be an integral part fo the MCU… just as integral as the movies themselves. Ballsy.

So long as it’s not agenda-driven and handled well then bring on the ladies!

He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
