Demand For BLACK PANTHER & MS. MARVEL or CAPTAIN MARVEL Movies is Huge and Marvel Studios Knows This



Earlier this month, multiple websites published articles claiming that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said the studio was too busy for a Ms. Marvel or Captain Marvel female-leading super hero movie. Sadly, this was all sensationalism because Feige said no such thing in the quotes which were being cited in those posts. (Click here to read more about this.)

Feige hasn't responded to that sensationalism and he shouldn't ever have to. However, the studio head has again spoke about the possibility of a Ms. Marvel or Captain Marvel movie and a Black Panther movie and how the fan outcry and demand for these films is being heard.

“They’re both characters that we like, that development work has been done, it’s continuing to be done on, and certainly it’s the question I get asked more than anything else, more than Iron Man 4, more than Avengers 3. That’s sort of the first time that’s really happened to us, so I think that makes a difference. I think that’s something we have to pay attention to… I’ve always said we have our plan, and it’s served us very well, and there hasn’t been anything that has managed to deviate or change from that based on an opinion, because opinions online change and they alter, and they are based on limited information they have to what’s going on behind the scenes, but in this particular case I think it is a groundswell, and I think it means something substantial.”

Without saying it directly in his comment, Feige implies exactly what he's been saying all along. Marvel Studios will move forward with a Ms. Marvel or Captain Marvel movie and a Black Panther movie as soon as they develop the right story which will work in both a standalone movie and in the much large Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

No need to rush any movie due to fan demand otherwise fans will get a film that is more like Warner Bros.' Catwoman. 'Nuff said.
