Ant-Man Star Evangeline Lilly Wants An All-Female Avengers
The future is female for the Marvel Universe.
As the Infinity War post-credits sequence so ably demonstrated, the future of the MCU lies in female hands. Captain Marvel’s to be specific. And according to Ant Man And The Wasp star Evangeline Lilly, the obvious next step is to put her in charge of an all-female team of Avengers.
“Well, it seems only natural Captain Marvel would lead because she is a general,” said Lilly, when outlining her plan in a recent interview. “And she's the captain. And Captain America leads the other Avengers, right, so maybe Captain Marvel would lead.”
“The sky's the limit,” she continued. “We can reinvent the wheel. We don't have to do anything that anyone's ever done before. We can just make it all up and change the game.”
In addition to Captain Marvel’s upcoming introduction, Marvel also has a Black Widow solo movie in the works, while Kevin Feige has previously spoken about a landscape in which there are more female superheroes than male. The MCU: now powered by women. So into it.
