Kevin Feige says we’ll have to wait for a female-led Marvel movie

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says the studio is too busy for a female-led superhero film right now.

Ahead of Guardians of the Galaxy‘s massive opening weekend, Comic Book Resources asked how far away Marvel was from a movie with a female lead.

“I think it comes down to timing, which is what I’ve sort of always said, and it comes down to us being able to tell the right story,” Feige answered predictably.

He did relent, somewhat:

“It can certainly be done. I hope we do it sooner rather than later. But we find ourselves in the very strange position of managing more franchises than most people have — which is a very, very good thing and we don’t take for granted, but is a challenging thing. You may notice from those release dates, we have three for 2017. And that’s because just the timing worked on what was sort of gearing up. But it does mean you have to put one franchise on hold for three or four years in order to introduce a new one? I don’t know. Those are the kinds of chess matches we’re playing right now.”

Sorry Gamora, Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Elektra, et al; Doctor Strange and Ant-Man will get their shot first.
