I was invited to an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles courtesy of Disney to attend the #ThorRagnarokEvent & #ABCTVEvent in exchange for my coverage. No other compensation was provided. All views shared are completely my own.

While attending the #ThorRagnarokEvent press trip, we had an opportunity to sit down with the President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige at the press junket.

Kevin Feige has been the driving creative force behind several billion-dollar franchises and an unprecedented number of blockbuster feature films, all connected to create the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In his current role as producer and president of Marvel Studios, Feige produced Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Captain Marvel and Avengers: Infinity War. Everything right?  I know, so impressive.

He entered the room, sat down and the interview began.  We talked about how exciting it is for Marvel to have three movies Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor: Ragnarok and Spider Man released in the same year. If Guardians of the Galaxy would ever meet Thor, if The Hulk would have his own movie, and his thoughts on the “bloggers aren’t real journalist” comment to which he responded, 

That was an ad lib.  A comedic, ad lib from Mr. Downey.  One of the many things he just says.  Moments before that, he says something about a human dog hybrid and puppies and who knows what he’s talking about?  It’s just funny, and when we shot it, it went past me.  Only in the early screenings I went, oh….I’m gonna hear about this.”

In the midst of us talking about his response to the blogger comment, someone asked, “are you looking towards an all-female movie?”  I smiled so hard on the inside, it burst out of my lips and onto to my face as I listened intently to his answer.  Kevin with a semi-surprised look on his face said,

I think we certainly have enough powerful characters to do that.  When and how, I don’t know, but I recently found myself in an undisclosed location.  Somebody tapped on my shoulder and I turned around and there was Scarlett Johansson, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Tessa Thompson, Pom Klementieff, all saying, hey, when are we going to do a movie?  So that was pretty overwhelming.  Zoe Saldana was also standing there.”

While he was talking I remember thinking, I really want to know more about the undisclosed location.  I imagined they were at a private party.  A room full of actors, producers, animators, writers….you name it.  And there he was having a laugh with the guys when he was completely caught off guard by the courage of these amazingly talented women asking about an all-female cast movie.

Now, I’m not sure if it’s going to happen, but I can certainly tell you why I think it should. Having an all-female cast movie reiterates that we (women) are strong, capable, smart and powerful on our own.  To me, an all-female cast of superheroes represents moms all over the world…. moms like you.

Being a mom is hard, really hard. (Yes, it is rewarding and joyful as well.) As moms, we…

are forced to reach into the depths of everything that makes us good, on a daily basis…even when we don’t feel like it,

work hard and constantly making sacrifices so our children’s lives will be better, 

always feel responsible for our children, their main advocate as they navigate through life,

are the emotion bearers, doing our best to carefully hold and shield feelings from hurt and pain,

have pixie dust in our DNA, we make physical and emotional boo-boos better with a kiss and hug.

Sounds like a superhero to me. What about you?  An all-female cast of superheroes is validating.  Not because they will be dressed in costumes or compared to have as much power as Thor.  Why…

Because she’s comfortable in her own skin and proud to embrace her power as she shares it with others. 

Because she perseveres in life through tough and often lonely times.

Because she fights for her rights, claims her freedom and pursues her purpose. 

Because she knows that true power does not have to shout to prove itself, but it can tap you on the should and whisper “how about an all-female cast movie” and still be heard.

I am hopeful that we will see an all-female cast of superheroes movie in the near future.  If I find out you will be the first to know.  But in the meantime, look in the mirror. You suit up daily as a mom, a true superhero making a difference in the lives of your children.

There are so many amazing Marvel movies to look forward to. In just a few weeks on November 3rd, you can go see Thor: Ragnarok.  It is my absolute favorite Thor movie to date.  Don’t miss Black Panther in theatres in February 2018 and Avengers: Infinity War releases in April 2018. You should follow Marvel on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates.
