More than two months after word first surfaced that several of the female stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe pitched their own film to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, one of those actresses is still holding out hope for the project.
“Now is the time, more than ever,” Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan told IndieWire. “Look at the success of Wonder Woman. It’s clear that we all want that.”
The Doctor Who alum had joined Scarlett Johansson, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Tessa Thompson and Brie Larson in presenting the idea to Feige.
"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?'" Thor: Rangarok's Thompson recalled to CBR in October. "And we were sort of speculating on they ways in which it might happen in Infinity War, or might not happen,” she continued. “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."
Gillan reiterated Thompson's assessment of the conversation, that Feige was enthusiastic but noncommittal. "He was like, ‘Yeah, that would be amazing!’" she told IndieWaire, "but he didn’t really commit to it, but he thought it would be a great idea.”
That group of actors will next appear together in Avengers: Infinity War, which opens May 4, 2018.
