DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth
" ... a phenomenal blog that's always up to date with female superhero news ..." -Nerdbastards.com

Your Latest Lady Superhero Movie Updates: Wonder Woman, Hmm … LADY Marvel, AWWW … Kitty Pryde, Sure!

It’s nice, in a way, to see the meme, of “Why the hell doesn’t Wonder Woman have a movie?” be all over the place in the media. There’s big media like Time and misguided should have known better fans. While there the occasional articles over the last few years, there seems to be a few every week now. I honestly don’t expect to see a Wonder Woman movie for years but I still like to see people express the desire for a movie. The latest is Max Landis who has said in a Reddit AMA that he would like to pitch a Wonder Woman movie.

Normally I’d just roll my eyes and wish him good luck, but Landis does have some cred. He’s a Hollywood scion, wrote the well received Chronicle and is a well known comic fan. And he’s a dude who is the same age as the dudes that are a Hollywood wet dream, so there’s that, too.

Marvel DOES Have A Script for Ms. Marvel Movie

Almost a year ago, I posted news that a Ms. Marvel movie script was ready (although let’s hope it’s now Captain Marvel). The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the script exists.

Even as Phase 2 gets under way with Iron Man 3 and sequels to Thor and Captain America, Marvel is working on Phase 3. Ant-Man, a project to be directed Edgar Wright, has a release date of Nov. 6, 2015. Beyond that, the company is tight-lipped about its plans. Marvel has a writing program it uses as a concept generator and has scripts for Blade and Ms. Marvel features, for example. 

Will Marvel get a female led superhero to the screen before DC makes Wonder Woman? I’d say that’s a very real possibility. Marvel makes their standalone hero movies fairly quick and fairly cheap. (Yes, cheap. Go read the article linked above to see  the way Marvel squeezes the pennies.) Carol Danvers can easily be worked into an planned movie as well (you’d think Whedon would be going with her rather than Wanda/Scarlet Witch for Avengers but that scripts till has a few spins before it’s done).

DC and Warner Bros. have had so many starts and stops on their superhero franchise let alone trying to get Wonder Woman to the screen that it will be a few years, if ever, before she’ll get a movie (even David Goyer agrees). 

So now the most important question, who do you want to see play Carol Danvers?

Adi Granov’s variant cover to Captain Marvel #1

Did you listen to the interview that Kelly and I did with Kelly Sue DeConnick this week? Go give it a listen as she talks a lot about her take on Carol and what you expect to see in the first arc. Also Carol’s hair (which looks longer here than on the other covers).
