I very much believe in doing it. I very much believe that it’s unfair to say, “People don’t want to see movies with female heroes,” then list five movies that were not very good, therefore, people didn’t go to the movies because they weren’t good movies, versus [because] they were female leads. And they don’t mention “Hunger Games,” “Frozen,” “Divergent.” You can go back to “Kill Bill” or “Aliens.” These are all female-led movies. It can certainly be done. I hope we do it sooner rather than later. But we find ourselves in the very strange position of managing more franchises than most people have — which is a very, very good thing and we don’t take for granted, but is a challenging thing. You may notice from those release dates, we have three for 2017. And that’s because just the timing worked on what was sort of gearing up. But it does mean you have to put one franchise on hold for three or four years in order to introduce a new one? I don’t know. Those are the kinds of chess matches we’re playing right now.
Kevin Feige, continuing to say a whole lot of nothing about a Marvel Studios female-led film. He admits that it “can be done”, but his new excuse is that he is making too many movies to make one of them about a woman. (via fuckyeahblackwidow)
Raise your hand if you’re willing to wait 3-4 years on GotG 2 or fucking Ant Man to get a Black Widow movie.
Raise both hands if you’re willing to wait on Thor 3 or Cap 3 in order to get a Black Widow movie and a Captain Marvel movie.
::emphatically raises both hands::
Yes please. Stop deflecting, Marvel!
