Thompson, Johansson, and more pitched an all-female Marvel movie
By the time the long in-development Captain Marvel movie hits theaters on March 8, 2019, there will be twenty (20!) movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it will still be the first solo film lead by a female superhero. Though all of the films have featured actresses playing the many great female heroes of Marvel comics, they just haven’t had their own features.
Speaking with CBR, Thor: Ragnarok star Tessa Thompson revealed that to level the playing field, the women of the MCU got together and pitched Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige on a film starring all of their characters.
“I think in that group was Brie Larson, myself, Zoe Saldana, Scarlett Johansson, Pom (Klementieff) and Karen (Gillan),” Thompson revealed. “We were just sort of all in a semicircle talking, and it just came up, because none of us really worked together – well, I suppose Zoe, and Karen, and Pom – and wouldn’t it be nice if we could all work together? And we were sort of speculating on they ways in which it might happen in Infinity War, or might not happen, and we thought, ‘No, we should just have a whole movie where we know every day we’re going to arrive and get to work together.’ So we just ran right up to Kevin Feige and started talking about it.”
Though such a project hasn’t found its way onto the Marvel schedule just yet, Thompson notes that Feige always has a “general itnerest” in the ideas that the stars of the films come to him with.
