“With [Ant-Man and The Wasp] and now with Captain Marvel and many movies to be announced in the near future, I’m anxious for the time where it’s not a novelty that there is a female-led superhero movie, but it is a norm,” Feige said. “And it is less a story of, ‘Oh, look, a female hero,’ and it’s more a story of, ‘Oh, what’s this about? Who’s this character? I’m excited to see that.’ And I think we can get there.”

On the question why the female superhero solo movies took so long to develop, Feige added that they are a lot of reasons and one of which is the ridiculous perception that female superhero movies are not capable of having box office success. “I think there are a lot of reasons, not the least of which was fighting for many years the erroneous notion that audiences did not want to see a female-led hero [film] because of a slew of films 15 years ago that didn’t work. And my belief was always that they didn’t work not because they were female-led stories — they didn’t work because they were not particularly good movies.”

Currently, Ant-Man and the Wasp is Marvel’s first movie that includes a female hero in the title, while Captain Marvel starring Academy Award winner Brie Larson is the studio’s first female-led superhero film. 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.
