With the Avengers team-up films seemingly having ended with Endgame, Marvel fans have continued to ask a number of questions. When will an all-female Avengers reboot movie come out? Others are asking who might lead that team of superheroes.
Here’s what we know so far…
Who Might Lead an All Female Avengers Reboot? The Answer Could Surprise You…
Among the many questions fans are asking is whether Captain Marvel would be the leader of an all-female Avengers team of superheroes.
After all, she played an integral part in the Avengers: Endgame film as well as in her own standalone film Captain Marvel.
Not to mention, Captain Marvel is easily one of the most powerful Avengers that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has given us so far, and who wouldn’t want to see more of Goose the Cat? I know I do!
With all that in mind, it does certainly stand to reason that Captain Marvel (aka, Carol Danvers) would be the frontrunner for such a position of leadership among a group of female Avengers in a movie, trilogy, or series of films.
But, according to some, it might NOT be Captain Marvel after all…
If Not Captain Marvel, Then Who Might Lead an All Female Avengers Reboot?
Of course, Captain Marvel is not the only female Avenger, nor is she the only one with her own standalone movie franchise.
We have Black Widow coming out soon (though it’s been delayed due to the global outbreak). She could also be in the running for such a lead position. We will also see WandaVision on Disney Plus soon, so Scarlet Witch is another fun possibility.
However, some people are now speculating that She-Hulk would be the leader of an all women Avengers team!
Now, this is all speculation, of course, until the MCU/Kevin Feige confirms anything.
But it’s an exciting proposal, isn’t it?! Especially given that She-Hulk will have her own live-action TV show series coming to Disney Plus.
With all that said, let’s talk a little more about the lady in green. As well as how she might relate to an all female Avengers reboot movie.
Who Is She-Hulk?
If you’re not familiar with the character, her real name is Jennifer Walters, and she is the cousin of Bruce Banner (aka, the Hulk).
Stan Lee (naturally) and John Buscema created the character together back in 1980 in the comic The Savage She Hulk.
In her time, She Hulk has also worked with the Fantastic Four and even has a romantic storyline with none other than the mighty Thor.
On the website Den of Geek, they write the following synopsis of She-Hulk’s character:
The recipient of a blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner, Jennifer Walters ends up with a certain green skin condition after receiving a batch of gamma-irradiated blood. But unlike Bruce at that point in his life, Jennifer can control her transformations. Well, she could…until she decided she just liked being She-Hulk better and spends all her time that way. And that includes when she’s practicing law. The character has done time as a member of the Fantastic Four, the Defenders, and the Avengers, so there are plenty of opportunities for this series to play within the wider Marvel Universe.Den of Geek
Pretty rad, right?!
I’ve always loved the Hulk, so I’m excited to see what She-Hulk is all about and to experience the story of a character most of us aren’t super familiar with quite yet.
She-Hulk on Disney+
As mentioned above, She-Hulk will be getting a Disney+ TV series in the near future. Because of that, she makes perfect sense for an all female Avengers reboot movie.
Not much is known about the TV show yet. We do know that Jessica Gao will be the showrunner. She won an Emmy for writing the “Pickle Rick” episode of Rick and Morty.
With the current global situation, it’s not known when production will be fully underway for most shows at this point. That said, some have suggested an early July start date for She-Hulk.
Time will tell, but I hope it’s sooner rather than later, both for the She-Hulk series and a possible all female Avengers reboot.
We know that a She-Hulk television series is coming to Disney Plus with Jessica Gao at the helm, which just sounds awesome to me.
The MCU has done a great job melding comic book action with comedy, and I think Gao will be perfect for the job with She-Hulk.
Watch this short video from Marvel Entertainment to see what She Hulk is all about.
According to some rumors and guesswork, the Marvel Cinematic Universe might see an all female Avengers team in a movie, series, or more.
The leader of that group is completely open to wild and unchecked speculation at this point. That said, She-Hulk, Captain Marvel, Black Widow, and Scarlett Witch all seem like potentially perfect captains of that squad.
Personally, I hope that we do get to see an all female Avengers reboot. We’ve gotten to see a few women in the Marvel universe, but not nearly enough.
And people (myself included) are certainly clamoring for as much She-Hulk as we can get…
I’d love to see as many standalone films from female characters as possible. And if the X-Men characters become fair game at some point, then there’s even more possibilities!
Just to name a couple, have you seen Storm or Rogue in action? Those are two rad characters with rich stories, and I would love to see them in their own standalone movies or series.
What Do You Think?
Which character do you want to see in action or leading an all female Avengers reboot?
