Thor's Tessa Thompson Wants to See All-Female MCU Movie

San Diego Comic-Con - Laura Harrier (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and Zendaya (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy), Danai Gurira (Black Panther), Tilda Swinton (Doctor Strange), Zoe Saldana (Guardians), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel !!!), Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther), Rachel McAdams (Doctor Strange), Karen Gillan (Guardians) and Pom Klementieff (Guardians).

Tessa Thompson related an anecdote about asking Kevin Feige for an all-female MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) movie. He said it might happen.

Marvel's been criticised for not making a Black Widow movie, but they've slowly been making steps toward a more diverse universe. They have Captain Marvel coming out and they've started highlighting more female superheroes like Tessa Thompson who plays the fierce warrior Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok

At the press junket for Thor: Ragnarok CBR related a story from Thompson. She said she approached Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige with a "group of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s female heroes" to ask about the possibility of an "all-female team-up movie" in the future. She even suggested the 1970s team Lady Liberators which included

Feige said, "It was a pretty amazing moment when your shoulder gets tapped, you turn around, and every female superhero we’ve got says, 'How ‘bout it?' I said yes."

He couldn't confirm or deny that Marvel is planning it but considering the schedule is booked up till 2020 it'll be a while.

Nonetheless, it's a brilliant idea. Wonder Woman's $412,421,748 domestic box office proves that a movie focused on female characters can not only work but be as successful as any other superhero movie. In fact, it's higher than Iron Man 3 ($409,013,994) and Captain America: Civil War ($408,084,349).

Here's hoping Marvel puts this idea on the fast track.
