After the success of Wonder Woman and the appreciation that it received it seems like Marvel and DC should focus more on making female superheroes movies. Here’s a list of fifteen fan-favorite female superheroes that need to have their own solo movies:
The most underutilized character of the Suicide Squad movie, obviously after Slipknot was Katana. She is a really cool character in the comics and could easily pull off a solo assassin-ninja movie if she gets a proper opportunity. Her sword traps the souls of her victims. Actually seeing that in a live action movie would be something we surely want.
Considering what a Solo-Hulk movie could never do, it would be surely possible that this Super hero might be able to Avenge her cousin if she gets her own solo outing. She-Hulk has mostly been on the periphery for Marvel Comics since a blood transfusion from Bruce Banner granted his cousin, Jennifer, her gamma powers. She has been really underutilized by Marvel and does need a push. She could easily carry forward the legacy of Hulk once he is done after Infinity War.
Hawkgirl is a reincarnated Egyptian princess who, with her partner Hawkman, appears as different people throughout history, they are destined to keep finding each other and falling in love. Her powers of flight, strength, super-healing, and acute vision came from an alien metal found on a ship that crashed to Earth in Ancient Egypt. She’s been a princess, a superhero, and an alien cop – not every reincarnation adopted the Hawkgirl mantle, but every past life informs the character as she moves forward.
After being born to a teenage mother, she was sent to a variety of foster homes from where she ran away and was thereafter taken in by an ex-Special Forces agent who cared for her and gave her lessons in martial arts. She herself becomes an agent, later on, gets married and eventually becomes a fugitive. Dinah has always had a distinctive look, donning an all-black costume with fishnets and sometimes a leather jacket too. Her powers include her amazing prowess at sparring and an ultrasonic scream known as the Canary Cry. In her current comics run, Dinah leads a rock band called – what else? – Black Canary.
Mera is Aquaman’s wife, a cool and elegant queen with a severe anger problem. Mera was royalty in a watery other world called Xebel, which has been a great kingdom. She left home to go find Aquaman – either to seek help in regaining her stolen kingdom or to seek vengeance on him as the king of Atlantis for forgetting about the people of Xebel. They fell in love and got married after which Mera and Aquaman had a son called Aquababy, but their happiness was short-lived. Aquababy was kidnapped and killed, which divided husband and wife, filling Mera with an unhinged rage that would continue to have an impact on her character for years to come.
Logan was a huge Blockbuster and while that character might be done for quite a while, we might have found a temporary replacement for Wolverine, until he is recast. X-23, Logan’s daughter gave a remarkable performance in Logan and all the fans would love to see her in her own movie and possibly along with her fellow mutant friends and maybe even a little grown up. The movie could be set up after the events of Logan.
Kara Zor-El is sent to Earth by her parents upon the destruction of Krypton. Since they share an alien physiology, Kara also possesses the same powers as Superman when on Earth, such as flight, speed, and searing heat-vision. For many years she hid under the alter ego Linda Lee Danvers to avoid discovery, working many jobs. A Supergirl film in the 80s was almost universally panned but didn’t get filmed. But thanks to the new show, which stars Melissa Benoist as Kara, that character’s previously untapped potential has begun to be truly utilized.
The Female Superhero movie fans have always wanted is the Black Widow movie. Scarlett Johansson has shown interest in starring in a solo Black Widow movie many times and fans would do anything to see that. Not just Johansson, the Avengers director Joss Whedon has been pretty vocal about wanting a stand-alone Natasha Ramanoff movie. Well, it seemed that he was not gonna get to direct one of those, so he signed on with WB to make the Batgirl movie which will be set up within the DCEU.
Gwen Stacy has been most famous for being Peter Parker’s girlfriend who was killed by the Green Goblin in 1973’s “Amazing Spider-Man #122. She has later introduced to the Marvel world again with a whole new story.Stacy takes on the role of Spider-Man or Woman in an alternate world where she gets bitten by a radioactive spider.
Hellcat a.k.a Patsy Walker began as a teen romance character who migrated into the superhero world after being given a new backstory that involved mysticism, martial arts, and a catsuit. Patsy Walker has already been featured in Netflix’s Jessica Jones so Marvel may not be introducing her too soon on the big screen.
Squirrel Girl was famous for being a minor comedic character with a funny title and superpower-she can talk to squirrels. That all changed when she became a part of the New Warriors. Doreen Green a.k.a Squirrel Girl has since become a fan favorite for her fresh, upbeat energy. There are already rumors of a New Warriors series in the works, so hopefully, we’ll see the hero soon on the small screen.
Created by our own Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Scarlett Witch first made to comic books in The X-Men #4 in 1964. Played by beautiful Elizabeth Olsen, the character has appeared in two MCU movies till now. Her origin story, as well as her experiences throughout her life, deserve a solo movie.
This half human/half demon hero from DC has everything that you need to make an emotional movie. She was raised in dark dimension, away from her parents. In fact, she never knew about her parents. But after learning about the true identity of her father, Trigon, and his plans to destroy the Earth, she rushed to earth to join the Justice League. She later joined the team of Young Justice after she was turned down by the JL.
After the addition of Spider-Man in the MCU, it’s the perfect time for the MCU to expand and bring more characters from the Spider-Family. Spider-Woman is one of those characters who should be considered for a solo movie. Unlike Peter, she lives her life on the darker side of the line.
Storm is one of the most powerful mutants in X-Men. She has powers that include manipulating the weather, flight and she is a good hand-to-hand combatant. She can speak many languages fluently. Although she has been a part of the X-Men movies for so long, she never got a solo movie showing her true powers and experiences which fans would love to see on-screen.
