The Marvel Cinematic Universe is already an incredibly well-populated landscape, and Avengers: Infinity War is going to bring an insane number of heroes together for the very first time. That said, Infinity War and Avengers 4 won't be the end of the MCU, and it sounds like there are some big things on the horizon when Phase 4 finally rolls around.
That's what we're going to talk about today. On the heels of Thor: Ragnarok actress Tessa Thompson telling the world that Phase 4 will focus heavily into the realm of female Marvel characters, we have put together a list of badass Marvel women that we want to see when Phase 4 finally begins. There are plenty of super heroines to get to, so let's start with one of the greenest of the bunch.
Right off the bat, it's worth mentioning that She-Hulk might be the character on this list with the highest degree of mainstream recognition. Real name Jennifer Walters, She-Hulk is a New York-based lawyer and cousin of Bruce Banner who receives Hulk-like abilities after a blood transfusion from The Incredible Hulk's human counterpart. However, unlike Bruce, She-Hulk's condition is far milder, which allows her to retain the full force of her intellect in addition to her strength and power -- though, on the downside, her transformation is often portrayed as a permanent disorder. She-Hulk has served as the legal counsel for a large number of heroes over the years, and her introduction could help bridge the gap between the street-level Defenders heroes and The Avengers ensemble.
Many fans have wondered about the potential of the West Coast Avengers making their way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point, and if Marvel ever decides to go down that road, then the introduction of Bonita "Firebird" Juarez could help make that a reality. As her name suggests, Firebird has the abilities of pyrokinesis and flight, as well as immunities to a wide variety of offensive attacks like poison and magic. Moreover, Firebird is also a prominent Latina superhero (just in case the name Bonita Juarez did not already clue you into that fact), so bringing her into the MCU could provide Marvel another chance to increase its level of inclusion and appeal to a demographic that has not received much representation in previous films.
