Up until midway through Phase 3 and since Phase 4, the MCU has faced a lot of negativity with regard to the representation of female superheroes, whether it be a woman centric film or proper representation in particular. All of this however, was changed with the introduction of the character and her titled movie Captain Marvel.

Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson and directed by Nia DaCost had its fair share of mixed reviews no doubt, but on thing it did for certain was pave the way for other women within the MCU to shine as well. Not to forget all the solo projects that they could highlight themselves in afterwards.

Captain Marvel Led The Way As A Proper Team Leader

The scene in question here is the very instance in Avengers: Endgame where Captain Marvel along with every female superhero ever introduced in the franchise, apart from Black Widow who had heroically sacrificed herself in a prior scene, collect against the army of Thanos himself in order for Spider-Man to be able to transport the Infinity Gauntlet Away.

The scene, while short lasting, was highly impactful and also gave us a tease for the A – Force. The A – Force was a part of the Secret Wars that took place in the comics and are take place in the MCU which is scheduled to hit theatres in late 2025. It was an all woman team, that consisted of Captain Marvel as well as the newly introduced She-Hulk.

Nia DaCosta Shares Her Views With Regard To Where Captain Marvel Stands Now

The director of Captain Marvel 2, or better known as The Marvels, Nia DaCosta, in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly spoke up about how the scene felt to her. She stated how the scene itself held a lot of power yet it did not last as long as she would have liked. The mere seconds of its presence made the scene feel shorter and very easy missed with the blink of an eye.

“I once had chills, but I was also very annoyed. I was like, ‘Two hours of this, please.’ “

She then proceeded to convey how happy she was with direct a movie with not one, but three women leading. The Marvels is set to have Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, and Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel. The movie is said to provide a balance for Carol Danvers as from Kamala Khan’s side, she gets only adoration and admiration while on Monica Rambeau’s side, their relationship proves to be much sketchy. She states how with the rocky ride initially, the three will learn to work together and for a sister-hood of sorts.

Nia DaCosta may not be the only one when she says she wishes to see more of such incredible moment with the newly introduced superheroes as well.

Brie Larson’s Views As Well As Female Representation Done Right

Captain Marvel actress Brie Larson remarked that she would much enjoy not having the entire weight on the character on her shoulders. Stating that the mantle of Captain Marvel might be too much to carry on her own.

“I think that’s part of what the journey is for Carol in this, is understanding that…to change the world can never just be on one person. It takes everybody to play their part, and that’s a huge part of what this story is about.”

Although some fans say that the scene from Avengers: Endgame felt unnatural, much too short, or forced in general; the tides for the same might be turning with Phase 4 of the MCU. The introduction of characters such as Yelena Belova, Kate Bishop, Kamala Khan, America Chavez and many more, as well as Wanda Maximoff herself stealing the light from multiple MCU projects, Marvel might be running into a direction of proper representation of women along with their upcoming movie The Marvels hitting theatres on July 28th 2023.
