I'm surprised Carol has so many votes. I'd prefer a Hercules film spun off Thor and following the Pac run, but can't deny that Carol has a strong showing.

Reviewing is a lot like paleontology: the evidence is there, but no one seems to agree on it.
1. Carol Danvers
3. Black Widow (the film NEEDS more women)
4. Black Panther (it writes itself)
6. Luke Cage

Udoubtedly, of those, I'd say Black Panther is the most deserving. Luke Cage is probably next, though I'd prefer to see a classic Power Man take than Bendis' generic angry black guy version. Hercules, in the vein of the Pak/Van lente series could be fun, also. And, just by personal preference, Wonder Man.
I noticed a couple people mentioning Namor, awhile ago I heard a rumor that he would be getting his own live action short to tie him into the Avengers franchise. I know Marvel is doing some live action shorts but did anyone else hear that?

First I've heard of it.
"He actually amnesty them!"
Unfortunately, I don't know much about Hercules or Wonder Man so I can't vote for them. Out of the rest, Black Panther, Iron First, and Dr. Strange are the only ones that I feel wouldn't thematically overlap with the other Marvel movies that are being put out. You can explore a lot of new territory with those three characters as opposed to someone like Black Widow, War Machine or Carol Danvers.
For movies with female leads, Jessica Jones (Alias run) and Captain Universe would be good choices but most of my suggestions would fall outside of the Avengers. The premise for a Dust solo could make for an extremely interesting and powerful story (something that would scream Emmy's if done right) as long as the X-Men are left out of it. A Sue Richards centric movie that concentrated more on how she deals with keeping the family together in the midst of all the crazy stuff the FF go through would be better then the typical "let's go save the world from bad guys" focus. I also think Scarlet Witch has led an interesting enough life to make into a solo. Hell, even a Jubilee vampire movie would be really interesting if it didn't take itself seriously (humorous/over the top). I'd imagine most casuals who've heard about that character in the X-Men would be curious about it.

If we're gonna have Danvers be the Marvel equivalent to Wonder Woman, I think having her front a solo movie would be a good start.
Hercules would be fun, though Luke Cage: Power Man, Captain Marvel and Black Panther would be ones I think most deserve it. If Ant-Man's comedy/action shtick goes well, then Herc should definitely be next in line.
