There's no denying that Avengers: Endgame will forever go down in history as one of the best comic book films ever produced. However, despite all the hype and genuine elation it gave fans, not everything about the 2019 blockbuster clicked with the Marvel Cinematic Universe fandom.

One aspect of Endgame that has consistently been the subject of discourse by fans is the inclusion of the all-female scene which saw characters like Scarlet Witch, Captain Marvel, Valkyrie, Shuri, Gamora, Nebula, and Mantis, among others teaming up to battle Thanos' army.

While the scene was epic in its own right, a lot of people thought it was unnecessary and felt completely forced. Now, one of the actors involved in the said sequence is opening up about possibly doing an all-female film down the line.

In a recent interview with CinePop (via Comic Book Movie), MCU star Evangeline Lilly expressed her desire to see the project come to fruition despite the polarizing reception the Endgame sequence ended up getting. The Wasp actress said: "Yes! I would like to be on it."

She also reflected on the controversial scene, calling it the "most special day" she's ever had as a Marvel actor. "That day that we did the scene in Endgame where it was just us women was the most special day I've ever had. It was maybe tied with the most special day I've ever had filming a Marvel movie."

Of course, the idea of it happening isn't too farfetched but I just hope if Marvel Studios does end up pulling the trigger, the project will actually be handled the way it should be. None of that forced "girl power" agenda they were obviously aiming for in Endgame.

Meanwhile, Evangeline Lilly will reprise her role as Hope van Dyne in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania.
