Progress for female representation in the superhero genre has been slow especially in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. None of the female superheroes introduced within films and TV have yet to have their own standalone film. There has been a glimmer here and there for Scarlett Johansson to have her own Black Widow film, but nothing has been substantive. Captain Marvel starring Bree Larsen will be MCU’s first female leading superhero to have her own film…in 2019.

Jessica Jones is the lone female TV representation of the MCU with rumors of a She-Hulk series possibly in the works.

The announcement provides a rare opportunity to nurture female creative minds in a directorial role especially in a field dominated by men.
