Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman managed to flip every preconceived notion that people previously held about comic book movies. Propelled by the momentum of a female director and a badass leading lady in the form of Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman has taken the DCEU by storm, and almost certainly guaranteed a place for itself as one of DC's most valuable franchises. The film continues to rake in money day after day, and it's clear that the adventures of Diana Prince have only scratched the surface of their true potential.

Of course, Wonder Woman is only the beginning. The film's critical and commercial success is signaling a growing trend of women in the comic book movie genre, and more female-driven films will undoubtedly follow in the next few years. (In fact, here are all of the ones we know are coming, and soon.) With so many great female superheroes worthy of solo movies, we have gone through the Marvel and DC pantheons to pick out the 12 heroines who could easily lead to surefire hits. There are a ton of awesome heroes to get to, but let's get started with one of the strongest (and definitely the greenest) of them all.

She-Hulk

She-Hulk

Jennifer Walters possesses many of the same abilities as her cousin Bruce Banner, but her overall depiction as She-Hulk is considerably different from her male counterpart. Obtaining her Hulk abilities after a blood transfusion with Banner, Walters was subsequently endowed with a rage-enhanced strength that makes her a formidable opponent in combat. However, Walters retains her intelligence and social skills as She-Hulk, which is probably a good thing when we consider the fact that her transformation into the green-hued monster is permanent. We already have a Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now it is definitely time for a She-Hulk.

Hawkgirl

Hawkgirl

Although Hawkgirl certainly had time to shine on the first season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Ciara Renée's portrayal of the Justice League icon left quite a bit to be desired by longtime fans. The reincarnation of an ancient Egyptian princess, Shiera Sanders Hall possesses elegant birdlike wings on her back that allow her to fly like a (wait for it) hawk, and she's a skilled combatant with a mace. The character's popularity has remained high with modern audiences ever since the Justice League animated series, so seeing her properly brought to life on the silver screen would undoubtedly please numerous fans.
