The Marvel Cinematic Universe is approach the edge of a precipice. After the untitled fourth Avengers movie is released, the end of the MCU as we know it will reportedly end. Only a handful of projects have been announced for Phase Four, and quite a few of the main actor's contracts will be up, leaving the future unclear. But this also means that creative collaboration and planning can occur for the future, and Thor: Ragnarok's Tessa Thompson already has some ideas. She'd previously revealed her hopes for an all female Marvel movie, but it also turns out that she was accompanied by a handful of other MCU ladies during her pitch. And together they spoke to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about it. She revealed:
I think in that group was Brie Larson, myself, Zoe Saldana, although she ran off to the bathroom, I think, so she came midway through the pitch but she had been in the rev-up to it. Scarlett Johansson. Pom [Klementieff] and Karen [Gillan], who are both in the Guardians movies. Yeah, I think it was that group. We were just sort of all in a semicircle talking, and it just came up, because none of us really worked together -- well, I suppose Zoe, and Karen, and Pom -- and wouldn't it be nice if we could all work together?
It sounds like Tessa Thompson isn't the only female MCU star to have interest in teaming up for a future installment. All three of the women in Guardians of the Galaxy are down to join the newcomer, as well franchise staple Scarlett Johansson and newcomer Brie Larson. All they need to do is add Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch to include the missing queen, and we could watch Marvel's ladies team up and hopefully kick some serious ass.
It's this excitement that inspired them to approach Kevin Feige directly, as Tessa Thompson told CBR:
And we were sort of speculating on the ways in which it might happen in Infinity War, or might not happen. And we thought, 'No, we should just have a whole movie where we know every day we're going to arrive and get to work together.' So we just ran right up to Kevin Feige and started talking about it.
This type of movie would no doubt be welcomed by Marvel fans, and could implicate an even longer stay in the franchise for Scarlett Johansson. While she's set to appear in Infinity War and the untitled Avengers 4, it's currently unclear if she'll continue playing Black Widow into Phase Four. But if exciting projects like these are being produced, then she may just strike a deal with the studio for more movies.
Of course, this is all just fan fiction at this point. But with Phase Four a giant question mark for the time being, fans are just going to have to wait and wonder until an official announcement is made.
