During a recent press junket for Thor: The Dark World, Natalie Portman stated that Marvel has a female superhero movie in the works. Here is the quote from The Inquistir:
“There are definitely many strong women, but it will be exciting when there is a central female character which I think is coming — I have heard is coming — and, of course, also a central non-white character will also be exciting. Title characters … But they do definitely have strong female characters in them and I think it’s a testament to the people who run Marvel, their respect, their just normal human respect for women, the way they want to characterize them; you can tell when men talk to you, as just a person or as a ‘woman.’”
Now nothing has officially been released or stated by Marvel or Disney. This is a logical next step in Marvel Phase 3 plan. Who do you think it will be Maniacs? Who do you want it to be? Yes, those are two different things.
Marvel and Disney will probably make an announcement after Thor: The Dark World makes a big splash for its opening weekend.
THOR: THE DARK WORLD (in Digital 3D and RealD) arrives November 8, 2013
