Just in case you’ve been living under a rock, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a powerhouse in theaters lately. One of the key traits leading to its success is its female heroes. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says there’ll be much more where that comes from in the future.

A Bright Future

While promoting Ant-Man & The Wasp, Feige promised to incorporate more female heroes soon. In fact, he stated that there will be more females than males in the not-so-distant future of the MCU.

“I think we’re getting to the point soon where we have so many great female characters that those are just our heroes as opposed to when are they all female, all male. It’s just the Marvel heroes, more than half of which will be women,” he told Screen Rant.

Who Run The World?

Since the beginning of the MCU, the popularity of its female heroes has been growing at a rapid rate. While it started with Black Widow in Iron Man 2, heroes such as Gamora and Maria Hill also grew to be fan favorites.
