Marvel and DC may be rivals and many fans continue to champion one company over the other, but when you’ve got a Marvel Studios’ exec cheering on a DC film’s success, you know it’s a good time to be a superhero fan.
While speaking with Yahoo Movies, Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige cheered on Wonder Woman and its success.
“The success of Wonder Woman is awesome, and just puts to rest the fallacy that people don’t want to see female superheroes,” adding, “I’ve always been a fan of the character, and I thought what they did with the film was perfect.”
With the film having already eclipsed Man of Steel‘s take and on pace to out-sell Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad, there’s a lot to be said for the film that made Patty Jenkins the highest-grossing female director of a live-action movie. But what does Wonder Woman‘s success really mean for the future, especially where Marvel is concerned? Feige has an idea.
“[Wonder Woman‘s success] sets up very nicely not only for Captain Marvel, but also a lot of things we haven’t announced yet and are planning going forward.”
With a tease like that, Marvel’s future line-up could be incredibly exciting. Maybe we’ll finally get that Black Widow solo movie we’ve all been clamoring for, or maybe we’ll see some surprise announcements after the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 stir things up.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui.
Wonder Woman is playing in theaters now.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, written by Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve, and starring Brie Larson, Captain Marvel is slated for a March 8, 2019, release.

10 Superhero Teams Too Powerful For Their Own Good
This past week, those of us who are both superhero fans and basketball fans, got to see the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA finals, getting Kevin Durant his first championship ring. Those who criticized him joining the Warriors for the sake of the security of gaining a championship have a pretty good argument (but Lebron did the same thing when he took his talents to South Beach a few years ago). An even better reference for us superhero fans: Spider-Man joined the Avengers eventually for the security of being on a “championship team” over the years in the comics, even though he was more successful when on his own. Some would say that the Warriors were not a regular team, but a “superhero team” as they (like the Yankees) stacked their team with athletes too good for their own good.
Ok, enough about sports, but this makes you think about teams of superheroes in comics/movies that are unnecessarily overpowered. It’s to the point that some teams are just too strong for their own good. How could they be defeated when they are literally the strongest people in the world (or even the galaxy)? Some of these members of these teams are literal gods and undefeatable on their own, let alone teaming up with heroes that are equally if not more powerful than they are. Here are a few superhero teams that are just too powerful for their own good. Click Next to take a look….
