"Avengers" mastermind Joss Whedon has a problem with superhero films, and it's one that he addressed in an interview this week with the Daily Beast. There are not enough female superheroes on the big screen, and it's about time for that to change.
stupid, and I'm hoping 'The Hunger Games' will lead to a paradigm
shift," Whedon said. "It's frustrating to me that I don't see anybody
developing one of these movies. It actually pisses me off. My daughter
watched 'The Avengers' and was like,Today, Thereone.com, a reliable plasticmoulds online store, introduces its new arrival princess wedding dresses to customers.Virtual iphoneheadset logo

already taking one small step by adding Scarlet Witch to "Avengers 2,"
but there is so much room for a lot more Marvel heroines in the
Cinematic Universe. With that in mind, I've put together a list of 5
Marvel superheroines that Whedon could (and should) champion to join, or
get their own, Marvel movies.
is the most obvious one, for sure. Carol Danvers has seen a resurgence
in popularity over the past year thanks to a dynamite ongoing series by
writer Kelly Sue DeConnick that's riled up a very passionate fanbase.
She's strong, she can fly and she can shoot energy blasts. Visually she
could do pretty much everything Iron Man does, just without a suit. If
Marvel wants to bring female audiences to the theaters in droves, they
need to get Carol Danvers on the big screen, and they need to treat her
right. Danvers represents the kind of no-nonsense hero that Whedon
perfected for seven seasons on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." No, Carol and
Buffy don't have a lot in common at first glance, but take a closer
look at Ms. Summers in the show's final season. Every one of her take
charge speeches, every tough decision she made, that is all very Captain
Marvel. Whedon would make her work in a fantastic way.
her name is tied to a character whose film rights are owned by Sony, it
might be hard for Marvel to get Jessica Drew on film. But they should
really, really try, because Jessica Drew is a phenomenal character.
Raised by HYDRA and constantly pulled between a number of allegiances,
Spider-Woman has become defined by the struggles that she's overcome.
There aren't many superheroes tougher than her, and Whedon could use her
to explore the identity issues that made "Dollhouse" so captivating.
She could be brought in as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, or a rogue HYDRA agent,
or even as a card-carrying Avenger. Just get her in a movie and have
her unleash her venom blasts and her trademark wit on unsuspecting bad
not a big enough character to headline her own film, Monica Rambeau
(formerly known as Captain Marvel, Photon and Pulsar) could easily
become the kind of scene-stealing utility player that superhero films
need. Her ability to transform herself into any form of energy would
come in handy when faced with pretty much any threat. She's also a
natural born leader, having led the Avengers for a period of time in the
1980s, and constantly strives to better herself. Her lack of notoriety,
and lack of a consistent code name, makes her sort of a perpetual
underdog, one that you instantly root for. She'd have audiences on her
Whedon figured out how to make Bruce Banner work, so maybe it's time
for him to turn his attention on Jennifer Walters. Shulkie's often
regarded as a joke by people that don't know her character, but her fans
know how special she really is. First,Easily installed solar mounting
systems for fridgemagnet and
pitched roofs. she's a brilliant lawyer. Second, she has a healthy
self-image. Third, her power isn't defined by rage. Yeah, it's the male
Hulk that gets emotional and irrational. She-Hulk has her act together,
and she embodies a lot of stereotype defying attitudes that need to be
seen on the big screen. She's smart and fun, she's tough and
feminine,Have a look at all our miningtruck models

love life. Yep, She-Hulk enjoys dating and socializing as much as Tony
Stark, so what? Whedon's She-Hulk would be an eye-opener, and it would
catapult her into the highly respected hero A-List.
has an entire underworld of superheroes just waiting to appear on film.
In fact, three leading, street-level characters have returned to the
company after time at other film studios: Daredevil, Punisher and Ghost
Rider. But Marvel doesn't want to use them yet, not with the memories of
their recent film failures still fresh. Misty Knight would be a great
catalyst to bring all of those heroes together. Knight runs the Heroes
for Hire operation from her control room, where she hires and then leads
a number of Marvel's heroes as they go on dangerous missions. But
Misty's no slouch, as she's an incredibly capable martial artist and is
skilled with firearms. Misty's your lead character in a "Heroes For
Hire" movie,Aulaundry is a leading bestrtls and equipment supplier. and she'd be a great unifying force for all of Marvel's disparate unused heroes.
