'Guardians of the Galaxy' Writer Teases Marvel's First Female Superhero Film
Marvel is listening to the hot demand for a solo movie that focuses on female superhero. In a TIME interview with "Guardians of the Galaxy" female scribe Nicole Perlman, it's revealed that the studio is trying to take a crack at their first female-centric film.
"I can't tell you what the other titles were that they were offering up on the table, but I can tell you that one of them was a little bit more appropriate for me, just based on gender," she recalled the time when she was approached by Marvel. "I think they were a little taken aback when I chose 'Guardians', because there were ones that would make a lot more sense if you were a romantic-comedy writer or something like that."
Without giving into details, Joss Whedon recently said that there would be "four prominent female roles" in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" which is due May 1, 2015 in the U.S. Scarlett Johansson will be back as Black Widow along with the other Earth's Mightiest Heroes, while Elizabeth Olsen is added as Scarlet Witch. Another upcoming pic from Marvel which will introduce a new heroine is "Guardians of the Galaxy" slated for August 1. Zoe Saldana will play Gamora.
