Last year we heard from DCWKA that a Ms. Marvel script was ready, and now they tip us to an official confirmation from The Hollywood Reporter. The article talks about what’s next for Marvel’s Phase 2 and Phase 3 projects. The most surprising part is the first reveal of a few Phase 3 movies in development based on Blade, Ms. Marvel, and Iron Fist.
Marvel has a writing program it uses as a concept generator and has scripts for Blade and Ms. Marvel features, for example. Doctor Strange, Iron Fist, Black Panther and The Runaways are other projects on the horizon. The company slowly has been reacquiring licenses to characters it lost during the 1990s, snapping up Blade, Ghost Rider, Power Man and Daredevil in the past year alone. [THR]
In other words, Marvel may have a film starring a female superhero long before DC finally makes a Wonder Woman movie.
