Danai Gurira and Elizabeth Olsen have commented on the possibility of an A-Force spin-off to The Avengers, which would be an all-female team of superheroines.
After the photo shoot commemorating ten years of Marvel Studios movies, a photo of many of the mega-franchise’s lead women surfaced online through social media, leading to fan demand for a potential A-Force adaptation to come to the surface. Olsen explained at the film’s press junket in Los Angeles that while she has heard rumors about an A-Force project actually being something they’re considering, she’s in the dark about whether or not there are actual plans to bring such a project into fruition:
“No one’s told me about it.”
Gurira was more detailed in her response, noting that while she hasn’t heard much either, she is excited that Captain Marvel will open the door to that possibility:
“I know no details on that; I was just thinking how excited I am about Brie Larson shooting Captain Marvel right now. The awesome thing that we see happening across many dimensions in our entertainment industry is we’re seeing more women take the helm in various realms, and that is not only about time, but it’ll make the world a better place, I think. So I’m looking forward to the future.”
Avengers: Infinity War will be released on April 27, 2018, with a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautisa, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Rudd, Benedict Wong, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Benicio Del Toro, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Terry Notary, Carrie Coon, and Josh Brolin. Here’s the official Infinity War synopsis:
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
The currently-untitled Avengers 4 features a cast made up of many of the key players in Infinity War — alongside newcomers like Brie Larson and Evangeline Lilly — and is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2019.
