Marvel confirms more female-led superhero movies are in the pipeline

EW's extensive coverage of Captain Marvel, which landed yesterday, revealed many juicy details about the upcoming solo outing for Brie Larson's superheroine.

The comic book and movie powerhouse has released 10 pictures to EW in the U.S., which includes glimpses of Larson as the Marvel Cinematic Universe's strongest superhero, Jude Law as her mentor Mar-Vell, Ben Mendelsohn as the villainous Talos and a two-eyed, de-aged Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. However, it certainly appears that the massive success of Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman has put to rest any idea that superheroine-led films are inherently box office poison.

"Captain Marvel" will lead the cover of the next issue of Entertainment Weekly, which will include an exclusive first look at the intergalactic hero. Nonetheless, it can't be denied that it has taken Marvel a long time to get to this point, which is a fact Feige is cognizant of.

Feige said: 'With [Ant-Man and The Wasp] and now with Captain Marvel and many movies to be announced in the near future, I'm anxious for the time where it's not a novelty that there is a female-led superhero movie, but it is a norm.

Brie Larson is set to star as the Air Force Pilot turned superhero, Carol Danvers, in the next movie up in the MCU franchise.

However, a couple of those EW exclusive promo images do suggest that her pre-powered life will be documented in some form, most likely via flashback. "But what makes her special is just how human she is". After Thanos wiped out half of humanity, Nick Fury sent an emergency message to Captain Marvel in the film's after-credits scene before disappearing, setting her up as a game-changer in the battle with Thanos. She's amusing, but doesn't always tell good jokes.
