Now that Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman has debuted in theaters, the game has officially changed. Female-driven superhero movies are now a proven commodity, and Gal Gadot's portrayal of Diana Prince will undoubtedly have a massive impact on the comic book movie genre for years to come. Wonder Woman is the first major superhero film led by a woman, but it definitely won't be the last. We've gone through every major cinematic universe and compiled a list of the upcoming comic book films that will center on classic female characters. On that note, let's dive in and see what's on the horizon for these ass-kicking ladies. (And go here for 12 female superheroes who need their own movies, soon!)

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel

The Marvel Cinematic Universe already has a number of female heroes who could easily headline a movie, but as of right now Captain Marvel is the only female-fronted MCU film confirmed for the Phase 3 slate. Captain Marvel will feature Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, and the project recently locked down Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to direct the project. Captain Marvel in many ways feels like the Marvel Cinematic Universe equivalent of the DCEU's Wonder Woman. As the first woman-centric superhero in this particular universe, the MCU now finds itself in somewhat uncharted territory, and the success (or lack of success) of this film will likely play a massive role in how Marvel chooses to develop future projects.

Release Date: March 8, 2019
