Female led superhero movies

With the announced female leads (Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman) and other potential female-led superhero movies (i.e. Warner rumored to be developing an all female Spider-Man spinoff) being discussed, I'm just wondering what this forum thinks of them. Will you have interest? Will you go watch them? Do you think they'll be big hits?

I think it all comes down to how well they're put together. Good scripts and good acting and they'll be hits. I don't think the kind of people who watch superhero movies are going to give a shit whether the leads are men or women.

I think Black Widow could carry a movie.

Don't really have much of an opinion on them other than the fact that I do get annoyed seeing these 120 pounds chicks one-shotting grown ass men.

I was watching Mr and Mrs Smith the other day and just couldn't stand the fact that Angelina Jolie was beating Brad Pitt's ass in a straight fist fight.

If anybody can do it, Marvel can. Prior to Iron Man, there really wasn't much in the spandex superhero genre that did phenomenally well outside of Batman, and Spider-Man. Yet they've somehow created an incredibly lucrative series of movies. Without any of the aforementioned characters, or the X-men, or the Fantastic Four.

If it's a good character and good story people will like it.

You could argue that the show Fringe was about a female super hero. Depending on how you define it. That's probably my favorite TV show ever.

If it's Resident Evil...

Lots of this.

I'd also really like to see a Black Widow movie, but it's clear it's not going to happen. Probably because of scheduling problems as much as anything, plus I think that the character will get a lot of attention in the new Avengers movie based on what we see in the teaser trailer.

I don't know much about Carol Danvers at this point, but I'm certainly not chauvinistic to say i wouldn't see it because its a female lead.

I'm not a big fan of the character but that's mostly due to me really following comix closely after she was dead and Rogue (a much more interesting character) had stolen her powers...

I will see Captain Marvel opening weekend. Wonder Woman will be a rental for me, but so was the reboot, Amazing Spiderman, and Fantastic Four. The new and Fantastic Four movies will be rentals for me, if I bother. So in that vein, a female led Wonder Woman will be higher on my priority than Supes/Batman/FF.
