Sony has Silver & Black, Warner Bros. has Gotham City Sirens, and it seems Marvel could soon have its own female team-up movie, with Thor: Ragnarok star Tessa Thompson revealing during a press conference for the Phase Three blockbuster that she has approached Marvel Studios chief about that very possibility.
“Recently I marched up with a couple of other women who work in Marvel and [asked Kevin] “’How about a movie with some female superheroes? Like all of them,’ said Thompson, with Feige picking up the story and stating that: “It was a pretty amazing moment to be somewhere and have your shoulder be taped and turn around find every female hero we have is standing there going, ‘How about it?’ And I said ‘yes.’”
As The Playlist notes, Marvel has been building its roster of female heroes, including the likes of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) with The Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Captain Marvel (Brie Olsen), so there’s certainly plenty of options should Marvel decide to go down this route.

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk.
Thor: Ragnarok is being directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) and features Marvel veterans Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk alongside Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Karl Urban as Skurge, Taika Waititi as Korg, Clancy Brown as Surtur, Rachel House as Topaz, Tadanobu Asano as Hogun and Sam Neill in an as-yet-unrevealed role. It is set for release on October 24th in the UK and November 3rd in the States.
