After the success of Wonder Woman, rumors of Marvel Studios planning to build their own female superhero franchise started making rounds. The rumors got strength in October last year when actress Tessa Thompson revealed she had pitched an all-female franchise idea to MCU boss Kevin Feige. but now, Elizabeth Olsen has stepped forward to set the record straight.
It began when Thompson said that Feige didn’t oppose to the idea of an all-female superhero film in the MCU.
Notably, Marvel has not yet rolled out a solo female superhero film. The first in line will be Captain Marvel which is currently in production. However, there are some movies from the film studio which feature female characters in lead roles like Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts.
During the premiere of Avengers: Infinity War on Monday night (April 23) in Los Angeles, when Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Scarlet Witch in the film, was asked about an all-female Avengers movie, she said that fans, as well as the press, took the news too seriously. She said that the media, as is known to, got too excited about the rumor and blew it out of proportion.
“I think that was all blown out of proportion by the media, so I don’t know,” Olsen told Variety.
Olsen walked the red carpet at Avengers: Infinity War premiere wearing a beautiful black dress by Oscar De La Renta. There were almost all Infinity War actors in attendance including Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Tom Holland, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Rudd, Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Evangeline Lilly, and Letitia Wright.
Avengers: Infinity War is all set hit theatre screens on Friday, April 27th. The film is expected to garner over $235 million in its domestic opening weekend.
