Scarlett Johansson, Brie Larson and Elizabeth Olsen Pushing for All-Female "Avengers" Movie

After the epic battle scene in “Avengers: Endgame” depicted the female superheroes uniting to protect Spider-Man from Thanos, Marvel fans started wondering if they’ll ever see the women unite for a standalone movie. “Captain Marvel” star Brie Larson generated even more buzz when she told Variety that she and other female co-stars have approached Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about getting the ball rolling.

Now, during a sit-down interview with Variety, Scarlett Johansson says she is also “pushing” for the movie, despite her character Black Widow’s demise in “Endgame.”

“I don’t know what my future is in that world. Obviously, it’s a little more opaque for my character,” Johansson told Variety’s Marc Malkin while promoting her new film “Jojo Rabbit.” “But that group of actresses is so incredibly powerful and when they come together, it’s explosive and unstoppable. So yes, I’m pushing for that. I think audiences want it and I’m definitely one of them.”

Feige has expressed interest in an all-female film, but has yet to confirm a green light on the project. Marvel’s first female-led film, “Captain Marvel,” grossed more than $1 billion worldwide.

Johansson leads the upcoming “Black Widow” movie, set for release in May. The plot for the standalone film has yet to be revealed, but it does take place in Budapest. Directed by Cate Shortland, the “Black Widow” cast also includes Rachel Weisz (“The Favourite”), Florence Pugh (“Midsommar”), O. T. Fagbenle (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) and David Harbour (“Stranger Things”).

Long before the women of the Marvel Cinematic Universe joined forces for the epic female scene in “Avengers: Endgame,” Marvel had expressed interest in an all-women Marvel mashup movie. But after uniting in battle in the finale of “Endgame,” fans have been asking when they’ll see the female movie hit theaters.

Now, Brie Larson, one of Variety’s Power of Women honorees, confirms that she, along with her Marvel co-stars, have had talks with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about making that film a reality.

During a sit-down interview at her Power of Women cover shoot, Captain Marvel herself was asked if the female film has been “truly discussed” among the Marvel brass.

“It is something,” she said with a pause, then adding, “Well what do you mean truly discussed?”

Larson was speaking to Variety senior correspondent Elizabeth Wagmeister, who followed up with, “You tell me.”

“I will say that a lot of the female cast members from Marvel walked up to Kevin and we were like, ‘We are in this together, we want to do this,'” Larson explained. “What that means, I have no idea. You know, I’m not in charge of the future of Marvel, but it is something that we’re really passionate about and we love and I feel like if enough people out in the world talk about how much they want it, maybe it’ll happen.”

Feige has previously expressed interest in the all-women Marvel film, though no firm plans to green light such a project have been set. Marvel, however, is putting emphasis on more female-forward standalone films lately from Larson’s “Captain Marvel,” which grossed over $1 billion at the worldwide box office earlier this year, and Scarlett Johansson’s upcoming “Black Widow” film, which is due in theaters next year. In the comic book genre, female-centric films have proven to perform at the box office, starting with DC’s “Wonder Woman,” which made more than $800 million in 2017.

Larson reflected on filming the “Endgame” scene where her character Captain Marvel made a special appearance, teaming up with all of the women of the MCU. For Larson, the day spent filming that scene was a powerful experience.

“It was just a great day,” she recalled. “To get to be with all of those women for the day and you get this feeling of, like, almost a little bit of naughtiness because it’s a secret and none of us can talk about it — that it felt like we were a part of this like coven working together for this goal. It was an opportunity for us to share and hang out. And as many people know, a lot of the time women aren’t working together. It’s kind of been this new breath of fresh air for us in our industry that there’s more female ensemble films, which has allowed us the opportunity to really communicate with one another. So we get so excited and feel so much energy when you get to be around your peers and share stories.”

Working with more women on-set has been a newfound positive experience for actresses like Larson, as more female stories are being told in Hollywood. And on-screen, Larson is excited that female superheroes are finally taking center stage.

“I don’t know what kind of change that brings the MCU,” Larson said, reflecting on the studio putting women superheroes on the screen in major roles. “I love Carol Danvers so much and I love playing her and I love the way that she interacts with people and the way that she’s grown into herself. So, I’m excited to see where that goes. But there’s so many other new characters that I love, as well, that I’m excited to see and it’s so hard to imagine now where we’re at with these stories. Them existing without any one of those characters. It’s hard to pull that apart.”

I'm of the opinion that if they're doing it just to do it and get a pat on the back like those pandering scenes in Infinity War and Endgame, they can keep it. But if they have a good story that isn't just "hey, look at these women teaming up, here's a joke about how men underestimate us but we'll show them!" then by all means, let's see it. I feel like that was the major difference between Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel: one felt empowering and special, while the other felt like it was trying to show us they could do it and make money (it was very WWE).

If it comes with an actual story that makes it feel organic I'm here for it, but we all know that wont be the case.

The way I just shuddered at the thought of a whole movie serving those moments :sasha:

I think they could have done it had Captain Marvel not turned out the way it did. As the one girly with a solo movie she kind of needed to be the one to carry this team for the general public but I just don't think she's the one even though her movie made money. If poor Gamora didn't get reverted I would have picked her tbh since she kind of had the mix of being a bad bitch and also serving caring that a team leader would need but that's gone now. Let me pray her, Nebula, Valkyrie, Female Thor and Scarlett Witch come through with their new stuff so this team up can feel less messy and forced

This is tea. She grossed over a billion, but I really think it was mainly because it was the penultimate film in the Infinity Saga, which made people perceive it as must see. But then she wound up being a non-factor in Endgame and no one really talks about her anymore as a pop culture figure, which is strange considering how she was marketed. Compare the conversation now to when Black Panther was released around the same time in 2018. I dead ass only remembered now that Captain Marvel came out THIS year :rot:

Once that character development hits after the events of WandaVision and Multiverse of Madness, she should be established and interesting enough to the GP to warrant a movie. It's what she deserves. :cry:

If we're being honest, the only real reason a woman-focused group film doesn't inherently "feel organic" is because women have never been afforded a story like that in this landscape and have instead been compartmentalized into minor supporting roles of ~1 per film. There's no reason a team of tenured superhero/comic/action writers shouldn't be able to craft a narrative as to why these women are working together. To me, the biggest hurdle to leap would be creating a scenario for them to actually struggle in given the incredible power of Carol and Wanda have been shown to possess by themselves, nevermind the other women they'd be including in the story.

They could fix that issue starting with Black Widow, it will essentially remove the men from the equation. I just wish Marvel picked a much better superhero for such, cause The Captain Marvel movie wasn’t much to think about, and Black Widow has been a none factor for years now in this franchise.

Realistically this team should be built with Wanda at the forefront.
