Ever since Tessa Thompson spoke up about an all-female Marvel film, it has gotten fans talking about the possibility of it actually happening. It seems like Guardians of the Galaxy and Jumanji actress Karen Gillan agrees, saying "now is the time" for a Marvel film with a female ensemble. With Wonder Woman becoming a huge success and Captain Marvel coming in 2019, there's no reason why this shouldn't come to fruition.

Speaking with Indiewire, Gillan brought up the time she and her female colleagues went to Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, who seemed to be open to the idea. This matches Tessa Thompson's story about the all-female Marvel pitch as well, so the story is actually gaining legitimacy.

"Brie Larson was like, ‘We should go up to Kevin Feige and tell him to make an all-female Marvel movie,' so we marched up there in a group, a whole herd of us, and said that to him. He was like, ‘Yeah, that would be amazing!' but he didn't really commit to it, but he thought it would be a great idea."

Considering how Feige openly regretted not releasing Captain Marvel before DC released Wonder Woman, focusing on the next best thing would be wise. Marvel is a strong enough brand to promote an all-female Marvel film, especially if it were based on a popular group like A-Force.

On an unrelated note, fans are still waiting for a solo Black Widow film. At the least, a film that focuses on her and Hawkeye's exploits before they were apart of The Avengers.

Gillan's Nebula will be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War next year, on May 4, 2018. Marvel's first female-led film, Captain Marvel, is slated for a March 8, 2019, release.
