More Girl Power Is On Its Way To The MCU And We’re Excited To See These Ladies Take Charge!
August 25, 2019
Since 2008, the MCU has been a boys’ game with Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor all taking centre stage. It’s the ladies’ turn to be front-page news. Since San Diego Comic-Con and D23, news has risen that more of its female characters will become central focus points in their upcoming projects. Girl power for the win!
Scarlet Witch and Vision
The six-parter will see Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany return as Wanda Maximoff and Vision. Monica Rambeau (Lieutenant Trouble) will appear all grown up and will be played by Teyonah Parris.
The serial is a prequel/spin-off to the upcoming Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness film with Scarlet Witch appearing.
It’s unknown what the premise will be or where the show will sit in the timeline. The show drops on Disney + in 2021.
Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor
Natalie Portman’s relationship with Marvel Studios is frosty. During production on the debut Asgardian flicks, she told her role wouldn’t be purely the love interest. She wasn’t allowed to quit Thor: The Dark World because she was bound by contract to complete at least two movies.
Tessa Thompson and Waititi as Valkyrie and the lovable Korg. The movie will arrive during 2021 as the final movie of Phase Four.
The 2020 film slate involves plenty of female empowerment. Angelina Jolie as Thena while Gemma Chan will play Sersei. Salma Hayek portrays a gender-flipped version of Ajak. Chloé Zhao serves as director. This makes her the first woman to direct a Marvel movie solo.
The film arrives in cinemas in May 2020 as the premiere entry of Phase Four.
Sharon Carter, Ms Marvel, Kate Bishop, and She-Hulk
Sharon Carter will return to the MCU for another dose of girl power in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier played by Revenge star, Emily VanCamp who’ll reprise her role from Captain AmeThe Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War.
As for Kate Bishop, she will make her first appearance in the upcoming Hawkeye series. If you’re not a comic book fan, you’re probably thinking, ‘Isn’t Clint Hawkeye?” You’d be right. We’ll witness him train Kate to be his successor. Hawkeye debuts on Disney+ in Autumn 2021. We’re getting serious girl power vibes here!
