    Default Mighty Marvel Women Who Deserve Their Own Movies

    With the continuing success of "The Avengers" leading to heightened fan-hope for a Black WIdow movie, CBR looks at the rest of Marvel's female pantheon to see who else could anchor her own action film.

    I hope the rumours about Ms Marvel having a completed script are true. I could see a film with her doing well - though they might have to go with Captain Marvel or something similar, I don't think a film called Ms Marvel would work.

    I disagree about having Mar-Vell give her powers. I'd have her gain her powers from the alien tech on her own.

    Charlize is a good choice, though they might want someone younger if they want two or three films out of her. But I'm struggling to think of anyone better.


    She-Hulk would be better off as a tv series.

    I love this list! I fully concur with the number one choice. Miss Marvel is definitely a top tier character that belongs in the same glass as Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man. I was disappointed that she didn't get a shot in the Avengers. She has the potential to be Marvel's equivilent to Wonder Woman. She's tough, she's sassy, and she's got her own distinct swagger that makes her so appealing. She could definitley carry her own movie. My only concern is that her being a hot-shot air force pilot would probably draw too many comparisons to Hal Jordan from Green Lantern. If Marvel wants to set her apart in the movies, they may have to tweak that. But more than any other Marvel woman or character for that matter, she deserves to be brought into the Marvel movie pantheon. The world of comic book movies need strong women leads and since a Wonder Woman movie or show just can't seem to get off the ground, I think Miss Marvel is our best bet!

    thank you for including Dazzler on this list! so often she gets overlooked as a "greater MU hero" because of her affiliations with the X-Men, when she actually started her comic book career by rejecting the X-Men and trying to forge her own path in the MU. I think she'd be a great choice for a film, but I imagine things would get sticky between Marvel Studios/Fox if the former ever wanted to actually make a Dazzler movie.

    I'd watch Charlize, definitely. She could pull off the compelling back story AND look pretty damn hot in spandex.

    I also love the idea of Gina Torres as Captain Marvel....

    I always get a kick that they push Anya as Spider-Girl so much and now the "new" White Tiger. Sorry, give me Captain Marvel, She-hulk or even better, Diamond Back.

    I think Charlize would be a much better Emma Frost. She just has class written all over her.

    I'd pay good money to see that, too. But Charlize in the Ms. Marvel costume? Fantastic.

    I almost wish they could have her fight Rogue.

    Black Panther. I'd love to see a movie with her.
    I have no idea who could play her, though.

    I doubt we'll see a "Ms marvel" film if they do anything with Danvers they'll use her as Captain Marvel. To be honest I'd prefered her in the Avengers film than Hawkeye.

    We know Wakanda exists in the Cinematic Marvel Universe....so it'd be fun to see T'Challa or his sister in a movie. I'd say his sister, just because we need more women on the Avengers team, and her power-set would be closer to Cap's....which would be fun.

    Then again, I wouldn't mind seeing T'Challa onscreen one-upping Tony Stark.

    Happy that She-Hulk is #3, I hope Marvel can do a convincing job of differentiating her from her cousin as more than just a mere female version of him.
