    An Oscar-worthy idea.:p

    I would love a Kitty Pryde movie, but that's actually Fox's call. ;)

    Excited most about Black Panther and Blade. I wouldn't mind seeing a Captain Marvel movie either. I'm not too big into her current series-and the current artwork is atrocious-but I did like a lot of her stories during her last Ms. Marvel run (around the Civil War/Dark Reign era).

    It would be nice to get a Daredevil reboot and a Moon Knight film as well. Or maybe do either for a TV series, Arrow-style.

    I'd much rather see Ms. Marvel introduced in the X-Men movie universe specifically for this reason. I want super strong, flying Rogue!

    The bias against top-billed heroines in comics films is painfully clear. Even if Ellen Page wanted to reprise her role (40 percent chance?), studios would give some cock-and-bull about unmarketability or other nonsense. Kitty Pryde can be funny and smart, somewhat like Tony Stark, but we mustn't thwart the will of the under-15s who will accept Elektra but nobody else as a Marvel female lead.

    You'll also never see an X-MEN ORIGINS: STORM. Halle Berry can frontline a film, but not as Storm. Though as portrayed in comparison to the original character, she didn't truly seen to nail the true nature of Ororo. Also, even the original character is as hypocritical as she is insufferable, at least as written by Chris ''The Outcome Never in Doubt'' Claremont. But if by some miracle there WERE a Storm film, I'd still take Claremont's take over Berry's.

    As for Wonder Woman, my feeling is that her character is seen as way too partician and not approppriately kick-ass. Also, having her flying inside her invisible plane would immediately look stupid.

    Not possible. FOX doesn't own the rights to Ms Marvel so crossovers aren't allowed to happen. Besides, Marvel won't allowed their potential franchise Ms Marvel be short changed just so Rogue can look good.

    It's FOX's own fault for making Rogue look so weak and pathetic like Bella from Twilight in the first place.

    More like 100%. She is going to be in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

    Me too, but you don't need Ms./Captain Marvel to do that. Just make up some gibberish about her powers coming back with a vengeance after the "cure" didn't take, thus making her the supercharged, flying crazy person we all want to see. ;)

    Personally, I hope they go with "Captain" over "Ms." since 1) it's been the 21st century now for well over a decade, so it's about time we started acting like it and 2) it fits in nicely with the Marvel movie lore.

    Specifically the whole Iron Patriot/re-branding bit in IM3. If by whatever mechanism one of their soldiers winds up with super-powers, then they're going to want to capitalise on that and drawing parallels with Cap would be half the point.

    Speaking of, exactly how do we think they'll handle her origin story? I'm no comic book expert, but even I'm aware that her origin/publication history is about as strange, convoluted (and at times as oddly misogynistic) as they come. Given a clean slate I suppose they could tie her powers into the Asgardian mythos? Her power set is after all, fairly god-like. Demi-god-like at the minimum. ;)

    Is there some reason they couldn't work the Kree into the MCU? It seems to me that Carol's origin story would be a good way to bring them into the movies.
    I just started watching Season 2 of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and I read the first issue of the new Capt. Marvel series earlier this year, and based off of those I would love a Capt./Ms. Marvel movie. Personally I'd prefer they call her Captain Marvel.

    Both FOX and Marvel own the film rights to the Skrulls, so I imagine both can use the Kree.

    Ever since I became a fan of Carol (whether it's as Ms. Marvel or her current incarnation, Captain Marvel) I've been dreaming of a movie about her. I'm putting money on Marvel having her be Captain Marvel, just because that's what she's called right now, and I'm sure they'd want to stay consistent with the brand.

    Either Captain or Ms. I think it's time to get a female into the mix of the (with one exception) all boys club of the MCU.

    I'd like to see her origin mixed a bit with the Ultimates version where she worked for SHIELD and I think for a time was acting director.

    In my scenario I'd have the character of Carol Danvers introduced on the SHIELD tv series. Then have the cliffhanger involving some alien menace on Earth being discovered and then she gains superpowers. It doesn't seem like they can use the Kree name (tied up with X-men and Fox or something?) so whatever alien name they give it. She leaves after getting superpowers and shows up for a few mins in a future Avengers sequel before getting her own movie.

    That would let the origin story play out in the tv series so don't have to waste any time with it in a movie.

    ^^^^I actually wouldn't mind that idea. Though I also thought a good idea would be to have her co-star in another one of the solo films and then pop up in Avengers. You wouldn't necessarily have to show her origin, you could just have her pop up with powers already then through the course of the movie you could have her reveal the origin. Just an idea.

    Another idea I had was they could have Carol adopt both persona's in her movie (Ms. and Captain Marvel). She starts out as Ms. Marvel and through the movie she adopts the persona of Captain Marvel, of course without the original Captain Marvel that name might not have the same meaning as it does in the comics.

    They were created independently in the pages of THE FANTASTIC FOUR, but have been portrayed as galactic rivals in Marvel Comics for decades now.

    Think the Klingons and the Romulans, both of which were introduced in separate episodes of STAR TREK, but whom are often spoken of in the same breath these days . . . .

    I'm all in for this as long as the first shot is Kitty pointing toward the camera proclaiming "Professor Xavier is a JERK!"

    I actually saw Vince Vaughn say that in a preview for the new movie the internship.

    Such a geek moment.

    Ellen is too old.

    Kitty is 14.

    Kids in over their head beating up adults, it's a grease that keeps Japaneese culture running.

    Kitty isn't popular enough to get her own movie. It'll flop badly.

    Did dating Iceman help or hinder her Q-Raing?

    (Why do I keep thinking that YOUNG Mayim Bialik would have made for a perfect Kitty Pride?)
