Kvinnelig superhelt på vei
Det er kjent at superheltenes univers er voldsomt mannsdominert, men det finnes også gode kvinnelige helter som fortjener en plass i rampelyset.
Det er ingen tvil om at superhelter er en gullgruve i dag. Deres univers fortsetter å utvide seg når prosjekter som ”The Avengers: Age of Ultron” og ”X-Men: Days of Future Past” introduserer nye karakterer fra tegneseriene. Nå skal også Portman hinte om en ytterligere utvidelse. Ifølge henne er det visst snakk om en kvinnelig superheltfilm i hovedrolle.
Portman skal ha fortalt SciFiNow at …
“There are definitely many strong women, but it will be exciting when there is a central female character which I think is coming – I have heard is coming – and, of course, also a central non-white character will also be exciting. Title characters.”
Til ComingSoon skal Marvel-produsenten Louis D’Esposito ha sagt dette om superhelt-universets fremtid:
”There’s obviously a drumbeat that is banging louder and louder that we want a female lead superhero. […] We have strong female characters in our films from Black Widow to Pepper Potts to Peggy Carter and you never know. Maybe there’s an offshoot film with one of them. Or Captain Marvel, you know?”
“Battlestar Galactica” og “Riddick”-skuespilleren Kathee Sackhoff skal, noe unnvikende, ha bekreftet at hun har vært i snakk med Marvel. Men er det i forbindelse om superhelten Ms. Marvel? Sackhoff skal i et intervju med Esquire ha uttalt at hun derimot skulle ønske å kunne spille Harley Quinn, Jokerens sidekick i DC-universet.
”I love Harley Quinn. I do. I just love it. It’s not been done before. It’s this fantastic mix. I mean, it’s like the female Joker. Who wouldn’t want to do that? Quite potentially — it’s not around so I wouldn’t feel the weight of it — I’d probably sell my first born at this point to do that.”
”When I was first reading the comics, the relationship with the Enchantress was one of the really fun things I thought would be good to explore, and may have even pitched it to Kevin Feige at some point. Because she is as sneaky and as untrustworthy as he was. They basically had a really fantastic and twisted relationship until they both say, ’You know what? I don’t trust you as far as I can throw you. It’s over.’ Because they keep betraying each other, in a way. So it could be good.”
Hva mener du? Hvilke kvinnelige superhelter eller superskurker kunne du tenke deg å se?
