Brie Larson seen as Captain Marvel in first look image

Marvel Comics

With the DCEU's Wonder Woman and the MCU's upcoming Captain Marvel, female-led superhero movies are becoming more common. The heroine was given extra-dimensional powers when she tried to keep a weapon from being created, and Monica became a hero who operated under the name Captain Marvel.

With Captain Marvel preceding Avengers 4, Carol will have an entire movie to establish her strength, even if she's not quite "godlike", as well as her flaws.

Boston's Ayanna Pressley follows trail blazed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
The Boston Globe brought up the fact that Pressley - a woman of color - represents a new generation of Democratic leaders. Stephen Lynch of MA has fended off two Democratic primary challengers, including a Boston-based software engineer.

Captain Marvel will transport audiences back to the '90s and introduce audiences to Brie Larson's Carol Danvers, who will cross paths with several new allies and adversaries in the highly-anticipated film. "And she's got a formidable enemy in the form of [shape-shifting] Skrulls".

Are you excited to see Carol Danvers make her MCU debut? Ben Mendelsohn plays their leader Talos, who spearheads a Skrull invasion of Earth. The only other female-led project that in the works is the long-awaited Black Widow film starring Scarlett Johansson with Cate Shortland directing the film, but no other projects have been announced yet. Her Kree DNA and the superpowers that come with it are already present, and she's part of the Starforce, an elite military presence that also includes Korath (Djimon Hounsou, returning from Guardians of the Galaxy) and the sniper Minn-Erva (Humans' Gemma Chan). "But at her core, she has so much heart and so much humanity - and all of its messiness". Set in the 1990s, "Captain Marvel" is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
