At this week’s press junket for Thor: Ragnarok, actress Tessa Thompson, who plays Valkyrie in the film, told a story about approaching Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige with other Marvel Cinematic Universe heroines to ask about an all-female team-up movie, per CBR.
At the press junket, Feige told the press about the intimidation factor that comes into play when you’re, “tapped on the shoulder and turn around to find a gang of the MCU’s female powerhouse, all standing and waiting to hear what you have to say.”
Thompson was quick to point our that there is precedent in Marvel Comics for all-female teams, including the Lady Liberators. Feige would not confirm or deny if such a project was in Marvel Studios’ plans.
The Lady Liberators originally appeared in Avengers #83 in December 1970. Valkyrie was actually introduced in the story, though she turned out to be Enchantress in disguise who was mind-controlling the heroes. The original roster, that only appeared in Avengers #83, included Wasp, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, and Medusa.
Decades later in 2008, the She-Hulk title brought back the Lady Liberators, this time formed by She-Hulk with a new roster including Invisible Woman, Storm, Valkyrie, Thundra, Spider-Woman, Tigra, Black Widow, and Hellcat.
Of course, there have been other all-female team-ups over the decades, including The Fearless Defenders, a book published in 2013 as part of Marvel NOW! The comic centered on Valkyrior, a team of female superheros led by Valkyrie and Misty Knight.
