Marvel Studios has broken down barriers and found great success over the course of the last decade, changing the landscape of Hollywood and creating the cinematic universe as we know it today. While the franchise has been met with critical acclaim across the board, and amassed billions at the box office, it did get beat to the punch when it comes to breaking new ground with female heroes.
Warner Bros. and DC Comics released Wonder Woman earlier this year. Dominating the box office and earning rave reviews from critics around the globe. The film was truly the definition of a phenomenon. Marvel has their own female-led film on the way, 2019's Captain Marvel, but studio head Kevin Feige revealed that he sort of wishes his franchise would've been the first to the punch.
While speaking with Vanity Fair, Feige was asked if he was hoping Captain Marvel would've made it to the big screen before Wonder Woman. Marvel's man-in-charge simply replied, "Yeah. I think it's always fun to be first with most things."
Coming in second place in even one category can be frustrating for such a successful brand like Marvel Studios, but Feige doesn't hold any animosity towards Wonder Woman, as he went on to joyfully recount the iconic No Man's Land scene from the film.
Feige went on to explain that, while Captain Marvel may not have been the first female-driven superhero movie, it's certainly going to be an adventure all it's own.
"Everything's going to work out," he said with a smile. "Captain Marvel is a very different type of movie."
Starring Brie Larson, Captain Marvel is set to hit theaters on March 8, 2019.
