Entertainment: Marvel's Female Avengers Cast (As We Know It)

Armor Wars' Movie News Hints Disney+ Is Fixing Its MCU Formula Problem

  Armor Wars' Movie News Hints Disney+ Is Fixing Its MCU Formula Problem Originally announced as a six-episode Disney+ event series, Armor Wars starring Don Cheadle as War Machine has reportedly become a movie.Armor Wars is set to be War Machine’s first solo adventure in the MCU. Introduced in the very first MCU film Iron Man (2008), James Rhodes was originally played by Terrence Howard. After a paying dispute led to Howard not returning for the sequel, Don Cheadle was cast as James Rhodes in Iron Man 2. Cheadle reprised his role as War Machine in Iron Man 3, every Avengers movie other than the first one, Captain America: Civil War, and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

An all-female Avengers movie has been rumored for a while, and speculation only grew after the “female Avengers” moment in Avengers: Endgame, but who could be part of the team? The Marvel Cinematic Universe as it’s now known began in 2008 with Jon Favreau’s Iron Man, which introduced Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and set the basis for this connected universe of Marvel superheroes. Since then, the MCU has introduced many candidates for the female Avengers - characters who have prominently featured in films and series such as Captain Marvel, WandaVision, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Black Panther, Black Widow, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Indeed, although male superheroes have been at the front and center of most projects, the MCU has many female characters - both superheroes and regular humans - with the potential of becoming something greater.

Captain Marvel arrived to prove that audiences are fully interested in seeing female superheroes taking the lead. Moreover, audiences witnessed a big “girl power” moment in Avengers: Endgame when all the female heroes present at the Battle of Earth teamed up to help Captain Marvel protect the Infinity Gauntlet. While this was an exciting moment in Avengers: Endgame upon first viewing, fans have pointed out how forced it actually looks, being nothing more than a fan service moment for those pushing for A-Force to happen, made worse by the fact that few of them really knew each other. However, this Avengers: Endgame moment re-sparked discussion over an all-female Avengers team, which should be easier to do now that more female heroes have been introduced and that the original Avengers team is over. Although a female Avengers movie hasn’t been confirmed, there’s interest in making it happen, with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star Letitia Wright sharing she’s confident that it will. The addition of female-led Disney+ shows like Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Echo also means there's a wider roster of MCU superwomen to choose from than ever for an A-Force or female Avengers movie. But who could be part of the team? These are the female superheroes who could form the MCU version of the all-female A-Force.

Multiple Marvel movies delayed as Blade causes schedule rejig

Among that number is Blade, which has been hit by numerous development problems in recent weeks. That includes the departure of director Bassam Tariq, the hiring of Beau DeMayo (The Witcher, Moon Knight) to rewrite the entire script, and lead actor Mahershala Ali's frustration over the movie's production delays.

Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel

Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel was the first female superhero in the MCU to get her own solo movie, so she would definitely be included in an all-female Avengers movie. Carol Danvers worked closely with the heroes who survived Thanos' snap, but Avengers: Endgame failed to show more of her by sending her on a separate mission in outer space while the Avengers, Rocket Raccoon, Nebula, and Scott Lang found a way to make the time heist happen. She showed up right on time during the Battle of Earth and was close to defeating Thanos, but the Mad Titan had some tricks up his sleeve. The last time viewers saw Captain Marvel was in the Ms. Marvel finale post-credits scene, when she and the titular Ms. Marvel switched places thanks to Kamala Khan's bracelet. Captain Marvel will return for The Marvels, where she will team up with Kamala and Monica Rambeau, the daughter of Carol's Air Force comrade Maria Rambeau.

Jonathan Majors & Avengers 5 Director Have Begun Discussing MCU Film

  Jonathan Majors & Avengers 5 Director Have Begun Discussing MCU Film Jonathan Majors confirms he's already started having conversations with Avengers: The Kang Dynasty director Destin Daniel Cretton about the MCU film.Marvel Studios recently shuffled their announced slate, a move that included delaying a couple of films such as Blade and Avengers: Secret Wars. Cretton's Avengers: The Kang Dynasty maintains its original 2025 release date, however. Plot details are still scant about the film as the MCU continues to lay the groundwork for its next culminating event.

Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch

After nearly tearing apart reality itself just to steal her own children from another universe in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, no one will be rushing to include Wanda Maximoff in the list of female Avenger character names anytime soon. Although Wanda has proven that she is far more powerful than Captain Marvel, Scarlet Witch has also grown to become much more dangerous than any Avengers-level threat. Moreover, Scarlet Witch's death in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness suggests that she could be sidelined indefinitely. However, as Scarlet Witch also unlocked Earth-838 Wanda's powers, there's still a chance for Scarlet Witch to reclaim her status as an Avenger.

Letitia Wright as Shuri

Shuri is one of the brightest minds in the MCU and is also part of Wakanda’s royal family. Alongside her brother T’Challa/Black Panther, Okoye, M’Baku, and the rest of the Wakandan forces, Shuri joined the Battle of Earth. Prior to that, she worked hard to find a way to safely remove the Mind Stone from Vision’s forehead, but Wakanda was attacked before she could finish. Shuri is set to return in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which could set the basis for her to become a proper superhero and thus join a female Avengers team in the near future. However, if Shuri chooses not to become an Avenger yet, Nakia could step up as Black Panther and join either the Avengers or the A-Force.

Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor

The Thor movies went through a major change when Jane Foster wielded Mjolnir in Thor: Love and Thunder. Even though she didn't survive the experience, ending in Valhalla means it could be possible for her to join her fellow female MCU heroes in a new Avengers team. A female Avengers or A-Force squad would need a heavy hitter like Thor, so including Jane Foster makes a lot of sense. Outside the in-universe canon, being played by megastar Natalie Portman definitely adds strength to the case for Jane Foster's inclusion. While there's no explanation for how she'd return to life, all it would require is the writers making one up. The MCU is known for playing fast and loose with the Marvel canon and its own, so a character's death is no reason to count them out. Besides, thanks to the multiverse, there's always the possibility a Jane Foster variant emerges for A-Force who isn't killed by wielding Mjolnir.

Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk

Tatiana Maslany stars as the Gamma-powered lawyer Jennifer Walters in the She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Disney+ series. Bruce Banner's cousin has been an important member of the Avengers for many years, and her appearance in the MCU was long overdue. Now that She-Hulk is around to smash and destroy her puny opponents (in the courtroom and otherwise), the A-Force could recruit her as their own version of the Hulk. In fact, the all-female Avengers team wouldn't have to struggle with the "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" issues the Avengers had with the Hulk/Bruce Banner, as Jennifer Walters is still even smarter than average while in her Hulked-out form. Jen herself has been a little reluctant to enter the life of a superhero, preferring instead to continue her professional career as a lawyer. She seems to enjoy donning the spandex more with every violent encounter, however, so by the time an A-Force/female Avengers movie rolls around, she could be more than enthusiastic about getting involved. Plus, thanks to Maslany's phenomenal portrayal, she'd bring a lot of comic relief to the hypothetical script.

Marvel's Avengers Adds Gladiator Skin for Captain America

  Marvel's Avengers Adds Gladiator Skin for Captain America A new character skin for Marvel's Avengers gives Captain America a more fantasy-inspired look that should be familiar to comic book fans,Not to be confused with the original Incredible Hulk storyline of the same name that was loosely adapted in Thor: Ragnarok, the Planet Hulk comic series was a 2015 offshoot of Marvel’s multiverse-destroying Secret Wars storyline. Among the characters it introduced was an alternate universe version of Steve who ends up in Battleworld, a patchwork reality made from pieces of broken universes, and has to battle his way across a hostile domain inhabited by numerous wild Hulks.

Zoe Saldana as Gamora

Avengers: Endgame finally brought together all the current superheroes in the MCU, with the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy joining forces to defeat Thanos once and for all. Among those was Gamora, but not the one viewers met in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, as she was killed by Thanos, so he could get the Soul Stone. Gamora's post-Endgame MCU whereabouts are currently unknown, but since the next Guardian's movie is arriving in 2023, her presence will long since have been established by the point a female Avengers movie happens. The 2014 variant of Gamora was brought to the present day and joined the Battle of Earth, but she ran away and left her team behind. The Guardians will have to find her in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and, depending on what she does in it, she might be looking to change her path and join a new and different Avengers team led by women.

Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau/Spectrum

One of the most important events that happened in WandaVision was the origin story of Teyonah Parris' Monica Rambeau as a superhero. Monica, who befriended Carol Danvers during the first Captain Marvel movie, developed abilities such as spectral vision, intangibility, and flight after she entered Scarlet Witch's Hex a second time. As an incredibly powerful superhero, Monica Rambeau will star alongside Kamala Khan and Carol Danvers in The Marvels, where the three heroes team up for the first time. The Captain Marvel sequel could set up a bigger team of all-female heroes, setting the scene for the A-Force. If not Monica, then a variant of her mother, Maria Rambeau, could also step up. A variant of Maria was the Captain Marvel of Earth-838's Illuminati in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. There's no rule saying every A-Force member has to come from Earth-616, after all.

Avenger's Secret Wars Writer Michael Waldron Proved He's a Good Choice With These Titles

  Avenger's Secret Wars Writer Michael Waldron Proved He's a Good Choice With These Titles Michael Waldron has been heavily involved in the MCU Multiverse Saga, and has proven himself capable of ending it with Avengers: Secret Wars.Progress on Avengers: The Kang Dynasty has been made rather quickly, as it was confirmed shortly after the announcement that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings director Destin Daniel Cretton is at the helm with a script by Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania's Jeff Loveless. Avengers: Secret Wars on the other had less news, even being delayed from its original November 2025 to the new summer release date.

Gemma Chan as Sersi

Eternals introduces several MCU heroes capable of defeating Thanos. This race of godlike aliens includes Gemma Chan's Sersi, who can manipulate matter to her will. Although it's unlikely that all of the Eternals will interfere in terrestrial matters after the events of their MCU movie, one of the Eternals who could become an Avenger is Sersi. Notably, Sersi's cosmic powers were crucial to defeating Tiamut in Eternals, and she also uses the Uni-Mind's energy to end Sprite's childlike state by turning her human. In the comics, she's the only female Eternal to fight alongside Earth's Mightiest Heroes. The dynamics between Sersi, Captain Marvel, Jane Foster, and Scarlet Witch would be great to see, as they could have the same tense relationship as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and Hulk.

Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne/Wasp

Evangeline Lilly's Hope van Dyne was introduced in Ant-Man, but it wasn’t until the sequel, appropriately titled Ant-Man and the Wasp, that she officially got into superhero mode. Wasp is not only skilled in combat but she’s also an expert in many fields of science, so she could make an interesting team-up with Shuri. Wasp will co-star alongside Paul Rudd's Scott Lang Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, where they will fight the time traveler Kang the Conqueror and will team up with Scott's daughter Cassie Lang, who's expected to become the giant-sized superhero Stature. Such an event could set up Hope van Dyne as a full-fledged Avenger, and she could take the initiative to take a break from the Ant-Man team to serve as a crucial member of the all-female Avengers.

Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne/Wasp

Like her daughter Hope, Janet van Dyne will also return in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania. The original wasp has been vastly underutilized, compared to her role as a founding member of the Avengers in the comics. In Ant-Man and The Wasp, she showcased the power to channel energy from the Quantum Realm to heal Ghost, which also set up new stories in the future. Having her as a founding member of the all-female Avengers would do justice to the character.

Avengers 1 Took A Massive Villain Risk (But It Paid Off)

  Avengers 1 Took A Massive Villain Risk (But It Paid Off) Using Loki as the main villain for the first Avengers was a massive risk after his appearance in Thor, but due to Tom Hiddleston it was worth the riskDeciding to bring back Loki was a massive risk for many reasons. For starters, at the beginning of The Avengers, the only character Loki has any connection to is Thor. This could have backfired with only one character having an emotional connection to the villain in a movie with so many heroes. Plus, the first Thor had not been released when production started on The Avengers.

Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel

There's a big MCU future for Iman Vellani's Kamala Khan. The teenage superhero stared in Ms. Marvel, and she's due to team up with Carol Danvers and Monica Rambeau in The Marvels. In addition to being a flagship member of the MCU's crop of up-and-coming heroes for future generations, Kamal Khan is also Earth-616's first confirmed Mutant. Since the arrival of the X-Men will no doubt be one of the MCU's most important future moments (even though there's no news on when it will happen), this massive change to her Inhuman comic-book origins is a signal that Disney and Marvel have their sights in embiggening Ms. Marvel's importance. Although Ms. Marvel is expected to form the Young Avengers with heroes such as Wiccan, Speed, Kate Bishop, and America Chavez, she could also become a member of the all-female Avengers in the future. Kamala Khan has often been depicted as a young recruit of the Avengers, so she's the most likely of the young heroes to team up with the A-Force.

Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie

Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie was one of the female heroes who teamed up to help Captain Marvel in Avengers: Endgame, and as she’s now king of New Asgard (crowned by Thor Odinson himself), this makes it easier for her to join a female Avengers team if she pleases. Valkyrie returned in Thor: Love And Thunder, when she went toe-to-toe with Gorr the God Butcher, wielding Zeus' signature Thunderbolt. Her inclusion on an A-Force lineup feels like a no-brainer given her presence in the MCU so far. Since her introduction in Ragnarok fans have asked for more exploration of Valkyrie's character. After some felt that Love And Thunder failed to deliver on this, an A-Force inclusion would be a good opportunity to give Tessa Thompson's Asgardian some screen time and breathing room away from Thor.

Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez

Another Young Avenger who has made her MCU debut is America Chavez, who first appears in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. With the ability to kick the multiverse open, America Chavez is not only valuable for the Young Avengers but also for the whole MCU as a whole. Like Kamala Khan, America is expected to be a member of the Young Avengers first, but a spot in the A-Force would be a no-brainer if the all-female team arrives soon. In any case, America Chavez's powers, which include opening portals to the multiverse at will and being strong enough to stand toe-to-toe with Scarlet Witch, are bound to shake up the MCU.

Jaimie Alexander as Sif

Sif wasn't present for Thor: Ragnarok, leading some fans to wonder if she'd vanished from the MCU altogether. She returned in Thor: Love and Thunder though, and even survived an encounter with Gorr the God Butcher, warning Thor of the vengeful madman's Necrosword-powered rampage. Sif has always been a character on the fringes of the MCU but has much more significance in the Marvel Comics Thor stories. Including her on an all-female Avengers lineup with help bring some parity between her on-screen and on-page portrayals.

Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams/Ironheart

Riri Williams, a.k.a. Ironheart, is the most direct successor to Tony Stark in the comics. Played by Dominique Thorne in the upcoming Ironheart Disney+ show, Riri Williams is expected to take over the Iron Man armor and become the MCU's main Iron-Hero in the future. Ironheart will make her debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the trailers for which have shown her building and flying an early version of her armor. It's not known if Riri will be in the upcoming Armor Wars movie, which focuses mainly on War Machine (Don Cheadle's James "Rhodey" Rhodes). However, since the film is called Armor Wars and isn't a Warmachine solo movie, there's a good chance she'll make an appearance. Riri has a lot to live up to, considering Tony Stark's impact in the MCU. That said, she has everything she needs to become one of the universe's best protectors and potentially the main leader of the Avengers, whether the team is composed only of women or not.

Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop/Hawkeye

Yet another female member of the Young Avengers is Kate Bishop, Clint Barton's successor. Played by Hailee Steinfeld in the Hawkeye Disney+ show, Kate Bishop will train to become an even better archer and fighter than Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye. One of the character's defining traits in the comics is her undying determination, which led her to convince Clint to be her mentor and earn her a spot in the Young Avengers. Once she has proven herself among the team of teenagers, membership in the A-Force would be easy to obtain.

Danai Gurira as Okoye

Okoye is the general of the Wakanda's Dora Milaje and has fought alongside T’Challa various times. Although she doesn’t have superpowers nor does she have a high-tech suit, she’s a master of the Vibranium spear, and is also one of the most tactical fighters in the MCU. In the comics, she has been part of the Avengers, and depending on how her character develops in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, she could be a very important part of the MCU’s first female Avengers team.

Florence Kasumba as Ayo

If Okoye chooses to stay in Wakanda, however, Florence Kasumba's Ayo could take her place. Ayo demonstrated an interest in international affairs in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, where she followed Bucky Barnes to oversee Baron Zemo. In Captain America: Civil War, she threatened Natasha Romanoff with a fight, but T'Challa prevented her threat from materializing, which suggests that Ayo's skills are on par with the original Black Widow. Such talents would be more than welcome in a female Avengers team, especially as the MCU's Phase 4 is introducing more dangerous threats.

Pom Klementieff as Mantis

Another member of the Guardians of the Galaxy who could join a female Avengers team is Mantis. Pom Klementieff’s peculiar character Mantis was part of the “girl power” moment in Avengers: Endgame (where she was briefly shown taking out some of Thanos' strongest minions effortlessly), and though she has been part of the Guardians team since Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, her character hasn’t been properly explored yet and has been mostly reduced to comic relief. A female Avengers team would be a great opportunity for Pom Klementieff's Mantis to show what she’s truly capable of, and seeing her interact with characters outside the Guardians squad would be very interesting and fun.

Karen Gillan as Nebula

Like her sister Gamora, Nebula had a change of heart and joined the fight against Thanos before the events of Avengers: Endgame. She went through incredibly tough challenges, like being pulled apart by her adoptive father and witnessing (and killing) her variant self. Nebula has sided with the Avengers in the comics, and Endgame featured her as part of the female Avengers moment as part of the heroes. It's safe to say she wouldn't be turned down if she decided to team up with the rest of the A-Force, which could open an exciting new chapter in Nebula's story arc.

Kathryn Newton as Cassie Lang/Stature

The last remaining female member of the Young Avengers is Cassie Lang, who was recast as Detective Pikachu star Kathryn Newton in the MCU for Ant-Man 3, Scott Lang's beloved daughter. Like with the rest of the previously mentioned female Young Avengers, Cassie isn't expected to become a full-fledged superhero as soon as she finishes making her debut. Instead, she's expected to get her Stature moniker in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and later team up with the rest of the teenage superheroes. After getting some experience fighting crime and defeating supervillains, Cassie Lang could join the A-Force in order to take on Avengers-level threats.

Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts/Rescue

Pepper Potts got a major upgrade when she put on the "Rescue" Iron Man armor in Avengers: Endgame, which allowed her to fight alongside Tony Stark and the rest of the MCU. Avengers: Endgame is the only time viewers have seen Rescue in action, and though it might be a one-time-only moment as Gwyneth Paltrow has said her time as Pepper Potts in the MCU is over, if the studio makes the right offer, it could be possible that Paltrow decides to return so that Pepper Potts can be part of an all-female Avengers movie.

Hayley Atwell as Captain Carter

First introduced in Marvel's What If...?, Captain Carter is a Peggy Carter variant who took the Super Soldier Serum instead of Steve Rogers (who, in her original universe, then became a WW2 proto-Iron Man). A live-action Captain Carter played by Hayley Atwell then debuted in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, wherein she was the Earth-838 Illuminati's Captain America stand-in. Captain Carter has proved to be a breakout addition to the MCU, and there are already rumors and demand for a solo venture featuring Atwell's variant. If this never materializes then giving her a place on A-Force would certainly be an acceptable substitute for many, especially if she leads the team as Steve Rogers did the Avengers.

Sophia Di Martino as Sylvie

Sylvie, the female Loki variant introduced in Loki, would make an excellent addition to a female Avengers or A-Force team. Not only would her powerset be more than helpful to the squad, it would also help her prove that she isn't the same as her villainous alternate selves from different branches of the timeline, showing the TVA once and for all that they made a hideous mistake in deciding to attempt to prune her from the central timeline. Sophia Di Martino's Sylvie quickly stole the show when she was introduced in Loki, and finding out her story was a driving factor in the MCU Disney+ series' success. She'll be back in Loki season 2, the ending of which might well set her up in a prime position to join A-Force (especially if the group is set against Kang).

May Calamawy as Scarlet Scarab/Layla El-Faouly

Moon Knight ended with Marc Spector's estranged wife Layla getting powers of her own, becoming the Scarlet Scarab, avatar of Tarawet. This version of the Scarlet Scarab was created for the MCU, having almost no bearing whatsoever on the two previous incarnations that showed up a handful of times in the '70s and '80s respectively. This makes Layla El-Faouly, played by May Calamawy, a blank canvas with which Marvel can do whatever they like, including creating someone who could bring the various far-flung MCU A-Force members together. Scarlet Scarab is perhaps the most interesting potential female Avengers member on this list for that reason, since Disney can use her as the narrative glue for a coherent A-Force big-screen narrative that doesn't disrupt the story arcs of the other members (all of which have long-established comic book and cinematic histories of their own).
