Brie Larson, who played Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has said that she and the other women of Marvel have spoken to Marvel President Kevin Feige about an all-female Marvel movie, according to Variety.
In an interview during her Women of Power photoshoot for the site, Larson said, “I will say that a lot of the female cast members from Marvel walked up to Kevin and we were like, ‘We are in this together, we want to do this.'” She added: “What that means, I have no idea. You know, I’m not in charge of the future of Marvel, but it is something that we’re really passionate about and we love and I feel like if enough people out in the world talk about how much they want it, maybe it’ll happen.”
Larson also spoke to the site about doing the big all-female scene in Avengers: Endgame. She said, “It was just a great day. To get to be with all of those women for the day and you get this feeling of, like, almost a little bit of naughtiness because it’s a secret and none of us can talk about it — that it felt like we were a part of this like coven working together for this goal. It was an opportunity for us to share and hang out. And as many people know, a lot of the time women aren’t working together. It’s kind of been this new breath of fresh air for us in our industry that there’s more female ensemble films, which has allowed us the opportunity to really communicate with one another. So we get so excited and feel so much energy when you get to be around your peers and share stories.”
Tessa Thompson, who plays Valkyrie, also told CBR back in 2017 about the meeting with Feige. “I think in that group was Brie Larson, myself, Zoe Saldana, although she ran off to the bathroom, I think, so she came midway through the pitch but she had been in the rev-up to it. Scarlett Johansson. Pom [Klementieff] and Karen [Gillan], who are both in the ‘Guardians’ movies. Yeah, I think it was that group. 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?”
She continued, “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 there is no all-female Marvel movie on the docket right now, there are a number of female-led films and shows on the way, including the Black Widow solo film and the upcoming Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk series on Disney+. Once they’re in the mix, will we see them all together? Would you like to see a team up of Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie and more? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
