Thor: Ragnarok’s Tessa Thompson has been leading the charge for an all-female Marvel movie over the last few months. Thompson portrayed one of the Valkyrie’s in Thor: Ragnarok.
She recently spoke with IGN about the possibility of an all-female cast.
“I’m not Marvel so I can’t make it happen, but I can tell you that Marvel is hugely collaborative, I think our even our Thor [Ragnarok] movie was basically the product of conversations they’d had with Chris [Hemsworth] and with Mark [Ruffalo] about what they wanted to do next. I think [Marvel boss] Kevin Feige is really excited by the idea, and if you look at what’s happened already in Phase 4 with me and [Thompson’s character] Valkyrie and our story, and then in Black Panther the women rule supreme.”
“It is an embarrassment of riches. Even 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!'”
However, Feige didn’t reveal when an all-female movie would be made.
“It is all about figuring out when and how. But by the way, many of them have already filmed additional scenes in upcoming movies, so some of that is gonna come sooner rather than later. All of them will be seen again.”
Marvel Studios already has plans for two female centric movies with the upcoming Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson currently filming. There is also a rumored Black Widow solo film in development starring Scarlett Johansson.
