Letitia Wright Shares Excitement For Potential MCU Avengers Film With Brie Larson & All-Female Cast

A-Force Avengers Endgame, Shuri, Captain Marvel

Fans of Avengers: Endgame will surely remember the now-iconic "She's got help" sequence that took place during the film's climactic battle with Thanos and his forces.

It was during this scene that the female heroes of the MCU, including Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts and Letitia Wright's Shuri, rallied behind Captain Marvel as she attempted to get the Infinity Stones to the quantum tunnel so they could be sent back in time and away from Thanos' grasp.

Since seeing that scene, fans have been clamoring for an all-female Marvel Studios team-up movie, something which has not been lost on the cast nor the crew.

Speaking to Yahoo! Entertainment, Letitia Wright offered that it's "only a matter of time" before audiences see Marvel Studios brings an all-female Avengers team to the screen.

“I don’t think we have to fight for it. [Marvel Studios Vice President of Production] Victoria Alonso is very strong about spearheading it, alongside Kevin [Feige]. It’s only a matter of time before they do it.”

When asked what other Marvel characters she'd want to fight alongside in the film, Wright replied, “Definitely have to have Captain Marvel, definitely," while also mentioning Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Basset, and Tessa Thompson to have join the cast.



WHAT THIS MEANS

For those unfamiliar with the comics, there is a precedent for an Avengers team composed of female heroes in the books. 

"A-Force" was a Marvel comic book which featured exactly that. First published in 2015, the squad was lead by She-Hulk and featured such heroes as Inhuman queen Medusa and teenage mystic Nico Minoru, not to mention Captain Marvel herself.

While the MCU hasn't introduced the majority of the comic book A-Force's members as of yet (although Tatiana Maslany's She-Hulk is on the way), Marvel Studios has no shortage of female characters who would be a perfect fit for this potential film. Mantis, Wanda Maximoff, the Wasp, and even redeemed former villain Nebula would fit right in on a team such as this.
