The Marvel Cinematic Universe has slowly been making strides in incorporating more women into their franchises — first with Black Widow, then Scarlet Witch, Valkyrie, and soon to be Captain Marvel and the Wasp. However, with Black Panther, they seemed to have taken the idea of strong women and really upped the ante.
Black Panther brings no less than three amazing female characters to the big screen in the form of Nakia, Shuri, and Okoye. Speaking with Vulture, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige discussed all the great female characters that have been incorporated into the fold over the past decade.
“It is an embarrassment of riches. Even watching the audience at the Black Panther premiere respond to Lupita, Letitia, and certainly Danai in their action sequences … you watch Danai spinning around in that casino, taking out dozens of people, and you go, ‘Of course you can make a whole movie about that!’”
But will we see a whole movie about that? Of course, Feige didn’t commit. The studio has never been about rushing for the gold right away, and this is no exception. But just because we won’t be seeing them in a team-up anytime soon shouldn’t suggest they won’t be around at all.
“It is all about figuring out when and how. But by the way, many of them have already filmed additional scenes in upcoming movies, so some of that is gonna come sooner rather than later. All of them will be seen again.”
We already know that Wakanda is set to play a pivotal role in Avengers: Infinity War, and in the first trailer for the film, we did see Okoye fighting alongside most of the other Avengers, so there’s a start, right?
