Marvel Comics is about to shine a spotlight on some of its heroines in some pretty epic fashion. On Wednesday, the publisher revealed the first look at a series of Women’s History Month variant covers, which will be featured on some of their March 2023 comics. March 8 will see the debut of a Bloodline: Daughter of Blade #2 variant of Peach Momoko, a Scarlet Witch #3 variant of Carmen Carnero, and a X-23: Deadly Origin #1 variant of Aka. They are followed by one Captain Marvel #47 variant of Ema Luppachino on March 15, and a Storm and the brotherhood of mutants #2 cover by Rickie Yagawa on March 22.
Come one A force movie?
Fans were curious if a A force movie could ultimately be in the cards for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially amid the recent introduction of a number of female heroes.
“Yes! I’d love to be there,” Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp actress Evangeline Lilly told me CinePop late last year. “I’d like to make it happen. That day we did the scene [Avengers:] Endgame where it was just us women was the most special day I’ve ever had. It was perhaps connected to the most special day I’ve ever had filming a Marvel movie.”
The next female-focused collaboration in MCU is this summer The miracles, which will follow an alliance between Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), and Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani). The film’s director, Nia DaCosta, recently revealed how the Endgame scene influenced her approach.
“I, like many women around the world, watched Avengers: endgame, and had that six seconds of all the Marvel women together. I once had chills, but I was also very irritable. I was like, “Two hours of this, please.” So it was really nice that they decided to do a team movie with three of my favorite heroes, so that was the most exciting thing,” DaCosta explained in a recent interview with Weekly entertainment. “I’ve been a huge Marvel fan for a long time, loved movies. And so I always knew I wanted to be a part of the universe.”
